Make Your Home Healthier & Energy Efficient
Products & Solutions: Flooding
1. Problem: Flooding
Controlling moisture in your crawl space is the first step to a healthier home environment. We stop water before it floods into your crawl space so a rainy day won’t ruin your investment.
Our encapsulation system includes an efficient drainage system and a super-strong vapor barrier. In short, it controls moisture and stops flooding.
The drainage system removes excess ground water and the vapor barrier prevents moisture from migrating from the soil to the crawl space atmosphere.
Turning your crawl space into a dry space will eliminate nasty odors, mold and poor air quality within weeks — once and for all.
2. Solution: SmartSeal System
The proper way to seal the crawl space underneath your home is to install a drainage system and apply a vapor barrier over every exposed dirt surface and then pour concrete over the vapor barrier to seal the crawl space. For the finishing touch, we spray foam insulate the foundation walls. Now, your crawl space is dry and you’ve taken a huge step towards making your home energy efficient year-round.
Here’s how it works: Once our drainage system, sump pump and vapor barrier are installed, we pump 3-4 inches of concrete into the crawl space.
Then, the concrete is hand-trowled smooth and once dry, it provides an impervious barrier to rodents and moisture. Now the spray foam is applied.
Applied to the perimeter foundation walls, our sprayfoam will increase your home’s energy efficiency. Our closed-cell sprayfoam insulation completely blocks all outside air infiltration from reaching your crawl space.
Now the insulation factor of your crawl space has increased from 0 to at least R-14, lowering your energy bills year round.
Now that your crawl space is clean and dry, you can think of it as an inviting and useful “mini basement.”
