Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Crawl Space Repair in Pompton Plains, NJ
This homeowner in Pompton Plains, New Jersey was experiencing moisture and water seeping into their crawl space walls. This can happen because of the soil surrounding the foundation. Over time the soil settles and becomes saturated during periods of heavy rainfall. The saturated soil creates hydrostatic pressure and pushes water through the walls. Damp crawl spaces can have many negative effects such as insects, mold growth, dust mites, increased energy bills, and even pests. The air in the crawl space can travel to the upper levels of the home create musty smells upstairs, and even aggravate allergies.
The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after searching online, and our System Design Specialist provided an inspection of the home. Upon inspection, our specialist saw that the crawl space was damp and had a musty smell, and suggested they encapsulate the space. Encapsulation would separate the crawl space from the earth, so no moisture would not be able to get inside. Our foreman installed the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier System which is a thick liner that acts as a barrier to seal the crawl space from the earth. The crawl space will now be protected from moisture, mold, rotting, dirt, and water. Not only does the homeowner have a crawl space that will stay protected from moisture, but it can be used for storage space!
