Foundation Repair Case Studies: Nasty Crawl Space Gets A New Look, Leland NC
Teresa B. of Leland noticed a few cracks in the walls of her home and was concerned that her house was settling. She called Southeast Foundation & Crawl Space Repair to get our expert opinion. We sent one of our expert System Design Specialists out to her home for a free inspection.
Carl is the System Design Specialist who inspected the home. During the inspection, Carl could see the cracks in the walls that Teresa was concerned about. The walls appeared to be sagging. This Leland home's foundation was definitely settling. In the crawl space, Carl noticed that mold spores were growing on the wood beams. A high moisture content was present.
After the inspection, Carl was able to show Teresa exactly what was causing the foundation settlement, along with a few other issues that needed to be addressed quickly.
Our approach to fix these issues:
- CleanSpace Encapsulation
- EZ Flow
- SaniDry Sedona
- a powerful dehumidifier that will remove any moisture present in the crawl space
- Lawnscape outlet
- this is used as an external drain that is normally located in the yard
Crawl space encapsulation offers a peace of mind from dirty, humid, and wet crawlspaces. The SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier removed the moisture under the crawl space.
Insulation was falling, due to high moisture in her crawl space
This crawl space needed a makeover.
Humidity is obviously wreaking havoc in this crawl space
Mold grows very quickly in a damp environment
Insulation that has fallen out of place usually tends to be ineffective in it's sole purpose of insulating.
CleanSpace protects the crawl space from elements and pests.
Lawnscape outlet is placed outside of the home, normally in the yard. This is the outlet where water (pumped from the SumpPump) will exit.
The SaniDry Sedona is a powerful dehumidifier that removes any moisture in the crawl space.
This SmartSump Pump will pump out any residual water (if any) in the crawl space.
