Our team installed CleanSpace overtop of the rock ledge to allow the water to flow into our french drain waterproofing system. By installing CleanSpace the dampness of the customers crawlspace was fixed. The CleanSpace also helps reflect light and makes the room much brighter.
This crawlspace has been transformed into a much nicer healthier enviorment with the help of our patented SilverGlo CleanSpace and TerraBloc Products!
These homeowners contacted Basement Systems of New York because of two issues plaguing their home. More specifically a radon level of five point two in their home and damp, wet, musty crawl space, which was creating many issues upstairs, as well as affecting their health. Because of how well their project came out with our sister company Foamco they decided to contact us and see what could be done to improve the overall quality of their home.
To take care of the issues they were experiencing, we installed our patented radon mitigation system along with an additional penetration point and our SmartDrain basin. We then proceeded to encapsulate their crawl space with our 20-millimeter thick CleanSpace vapor barrier. Once installed, we sprayed 2" of closed-cell spray foam to our CleanSpace vapor barrier. After laying our vapor barrier, we finished this project off with one of our patented Basementaire dehumidification systems.
By applying our patented products to their home, we reduced their radon level from their previous five-point two to a two. While the main concern for these homeowners was their radon level, they were also concerned about the humidity, dampness, and mustiness throughout their home, by encapsulating their crawl space and installing our dehumidification system, we were able to remediate the problem at hand. In doing so, we were able to make their home more comfortable. Overall these homeowners were so glad that they had both a comfortable home again, as well as peace of mind restored to them.
These homeowners just purchased this second home several months ago. After living in their new home for a short period they realized that they had a water and humidity issue. More specifically, water was coming in at the wall-floor joints and a couple of cracks on the floor as well. Because of the water intrusion, they decided to contact Basement Systems of New York to see how we could help their home. This project in itself was unique because of the fact that their home has a step footing versus a traditional footing.
To take care of the water issue at hand we dug around the perimeter of their basement, as well through the center of it to create our trench as well as laterals. Once done we installed our FlowGuard waterproofing system and tied it into our TripleSafe sump pump. Before applying concrete on top of our system, we applied both the drain mat and CleanSpace to the walls. Finally, before turning the basement back over to the homeowners, we installed our SaniDry XP dehumidification system to keep the areas free of any excess moisture or humidity.
Since installing our patented products their basement has been dry, as well the environment both downstairs and upstairs has completely changed for the better. They now have a fully functional home that they do not have to worry about every single night when they go to bed.
These homeowners contacted Basement Systems of New York to see what could be done to take care of their basement to get it in tip-top shape before selling it. They knew with it having an old dirt floor that would get water consistently they would either need to take care of the issue before selling their home to create a value proposition for the buyer or take a large sum of money off. Because of this, they decided to be proactive and take care of the issues before selling their home. In doing so they can now guarantee to get the most return on their investment possible.
For us to take care of their water, foundation, and floor problems, we dug their floor four inches down, we then installed eight precast footings, all of which our SmartJack systems would sit on top of. Once this was completed we started to install our patented FlowGuard waterproofing system along the perimeter of the basement, which was then tied into our SuperSump plus. Finally, before laying our new concrete slab we installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier on their walls.
By installing our patented systems we able to address the major concerns that the current homeowner had for himself and his family while they continued to live in the home, but more importantly to them they were able to address obvious issues that they knew would stop them from being able to sell their home in the foreseeable future.
