In this home they were experiencing high humidity and strong musty smells or odors coming from the crawlspace area. First step is remove all debris and organic matter, next we level the floor as best as possible. Then we lay down a plastic dimple board system and over the plastic barrier we install the Silverback Encapsulation system. Silverback is a 20 Mil Thick liner infused with anti microbial’s which resist any types of growth on the liner system as well as being reinforced with high strength polymers for strong tear resistant material, it covers the entire surface area as well as the foundation walls. It is then sealed to the foundation walls to ensure no water seepage on top of the liner system. Insulation options are available also and we normally recommend Santa Fe Dehumidifiers to control the environment after it is encapsulated.
These are some pictures of a crawlspace we encapsulated. We started with installing 6 Big Boy Jack’s to stabilize the floors in the cabin. There was rain during this project which flooded the crawlspace and we added a drain tile system and two sump pump systems. We also installed installed a high performance dehumidifier.
Crawl Space Repair at it’s best. Complete clean out of the work area. The soil is then raked as level as possible. As seen in the pictures there is a plastic dimple board installed over the dirt floor. Next is the new 20 mil. Reinforced liner. It’s installed across the floor and sealed up to the top of the foundation wall. The liner helps with smells, humidity and also helps protect your family from allergens that lurk in crawlspace areas. We are proud of our jobs when they are done. And you will be proud of your crawlspace when we are done.
We work with you to understand the pros and cons of crawl space encapsulation as well as the costs to encapsulate your crawl space.
