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.
At this project we installed a new interior water control system to stop a leaky portion of the foundation. A new sealed sump pump system was then installed which will discharge the water up and outside.
Attached are some pictures of a Water Control system we installed in Appleton WI. These customers got a dry basement for the holidays.
At this home is Fond Du Lac, we excavated 4 walls of this foundation. The walls were bowing in due to the pressure of the expansive clay soils, so we mainly stabilized the walls with adjustable support beams. We also used Grip Tite wall anchors in some areas of the project. We straightened the walls with our Jack Back system and the exterior of the walls were sealed with Mel Rol which is a 60 Mil Rubber liner. After the Mel Rol is installed the foundation is then wrapped with another water proofing material, DXM foundation wrap, Which is plastic dimple board system. New 4″ drain tile is installed along the footing and tied properly into our new sealed sump pump system. After the walls are waterproofed and stabilized they are back filled 80% up to grade with 3/4″ clear stone and topsoil is installed and raised to have a positive pitch from the foundation.
