If you’re tired of a wet, moldy, unusable crawlspace, we can help you transform this problem area of your home into usable storage space. The methodology we utilize to encapsulate crawlspaces is first to level and re-grade the floor surface. Once this is accomplished, we will lay down #57 gravel if it does not already exist. To dry out the floor, we will install a 35-gallon polyurethane sump pump crib. Using lasers, we will excavate around the interior perimeter of your crawlspace and install 4-inch perforated drain tiles that will tie into the sump pump crib. The 4-inch perforated drain tiles will be installed with a nylon sock to keep sediment from building up within the pipe. The next step is to install a good quality sump pump, plumbed, to code.

We will bring the plastic liner up two feet onto the foundation walls and fix the vapor barrier utilizing rivets. Once the vapor barrier has been affixed to your foundation walls, we will run a bead of good-quality caulk to ensure that no moisture escapes our encapsulation system.
