Crawl Space Repair Before & After Photos
Crawlspaces are usually wet and smelly, and sagging insulation is generally a sign that a crawlspace has a moisture issue. This crawlspace in Linville, NC had just that problem. The insulation was soaking up the moisture in the space and began to fall from the floor joists. In order to keep the moisture levels controlled in this crawlspace, Tar Heel Basement Systems installed their patented CrawlSeal vapor barrier, sealed the vents and installed a Tar Heel dehumidifier. This crawlspace is now dry.
Water was pushing through the cinderblock walls of this crawl space and there was groundwater seepage during heavy rains. In order to fully protect this crawl space from flooding, Tar Heel Basement Systems installed a SafeDri™ Triple Sump Pump System (with a battery backup) in the low spot of the crawl space. The CrawlSeal wall liner will allow any water coming through the walls to drain behind it and into the drainage system. This space will now stay dry during the heaviest of rain storms and humid months.
This homeowner was concerned that the worn, thin plastic that was placed on the dirt crawlspace floor would be a deal breaker for potential buyers of this Newland, NC home. In order to increase the property value and integrity of the home, Tar Heel Basement Systems installed their patented CrawlSeal Crawlspace Encapsulation System, which included sealing the crawlspace with a 20 mil. think vapor barrier and conditioning the air with a Tar Heel dehumidifier.
