A homeowner contacted us because the floors of her home were sagging.
Our team installed a jack in the crawl space to fix that issue. The crawl space was also encapsulated.
This homeowner contacted HomeSpec because the structural support in her crawl space was failing severely - causing the floors above to sag and creating a hazard. No one wants to live with bouncy floors!
To solve this problem, our crew installed SmartJack support posts throughout the crawl space. We also installed supplemental beams, replaced and sistered the joists, and replaced the old shims with steel plate shims. Then we encapsulated the crawl space with the CleanSpace vapor barrier and vent covers.
These homeowners live on a lake in Chesterfield, Michigan and have a crawl space that often floods. This is a common problem with lakeside homes since they're so close to the water. After the most recent flood, their only two sump pumps died (after not being able to handle the high amount of water), and their vapor barrier was ruined.
To give these homeowners peace of mind, our crew of professionals installed drainage matting and a vapor barrier to encapsulate and waterproof the crawl space. We also installed two new sump pumps - powerful enough to discharge thousands of gallons of water per hour. This system will prevent flooding and control the high water levels near the lake, so these homeowners can relax and enjoy their beautiful home!
These homeowners contacted HomeSpec because their crawl space was very humid and water was seeping in.
Our crew solved this problem by encapsulating the crawl space to keep it clean, dry, healthy, and free from mold and moisture for a more comfortable home.
This homeowner contacted HomeSpec because a block wall in his crawl space was deteriorating.
This can danger the structural integrity of the home, so our crew rebuilt the severely damaged wall, and then encapsulated the entire crawl space with our CleanSpace vapor barrier to waterproof it.
