Crawl Space Encapsulation

The Final Result:

This crawl space has been totally transformed from a dirty, odor-filled, insect ridden unhealthy space into a clean, energy efficient and odor free space. The standing water has been removed, making the foundation stronger. The odors that permeate the living space are gone. The best part about this sealed crawl space is that it will stay this way forever! It is covered by our Lifetime Warranty which is transferable at no additional cost.


The Property:

4150 Sq Ft Home
6 Years Old
Raleigh, NC

The Problem:

Standing water in the entire Crawl Space

leakycrawlspace2

The Solution:

Install complete perimeter interior drainage system with Sump Pump

The Final Result:

During heavy rain storms, hydrostatic pressure builds under the crawl space and drives water upward when the ground becomes saturated. This cannot be stopped by an expensive drain as it is an interior problem. An Interior Drainage System will keep the water “pumped” out during these heavy rain events. It is a system that works when needed giving this homeowner the peace of mind when the rains come!


The Property:

2500 Sq Ft Home
Built in 2014

Crawl Space Encapsulation before

Crawl Space Encapsulation Raleigh nc

The Final Result:

This new house now has a basic sealed crawl space that will prevent all common crawl space issues such as mold, musty odors, insects and falling insulation for the life of this home. The owner had allergy issues and she wanted to know that she had done everything she could to prevent mold from entering her home. The cost of this crawl space is much less than a premium sealed crawl space because there is no mold to be cleaned and there is no insulation that needs to be replaced.

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Raleigh

The Final Result:

It is NOT normal for a basement to be damp, musty, moldy and controlled by insects! With a properly installed Interior Basement Drainage system, a basement should be either living or storage space just like the rest of your home. Once the standing water, humidity, and odors are under control, you can do anything you want with your basement without worrying about lower-level problems. A clean and healthy basement makes for a clean and healthy home.

Crawl Space Encapsulation after

The Final Result:

This beautiful old house is getting a new life through a complete house remodel. Because a wet crawl space will greatly affect the functionality of the rest of the house, the crawl space has to be encapsulated if you are ever going to gain control of moisture issues. Now this 83 year old home will be as strong and clean as a house constructed this year. It will operate with the same efficiency and cleanliness as a newer constructed home.
