Crawl Spaces Case Studies: Crawl Space Repair in Winneconne, WI

Friday, March 27th, 2020 by Tom Wardlow

Challenge

Your home is a system, and every part of that system plays a role that affects the rest of the structure. If your crawl space begins to rot, grow mold, or experience structural problems, this will extend to every part of your home. 

This crawl space in Winneconne, WI had all the typical signs of a failing crawl space: moisture, mold, and falling insulation.  Interior drywall cracks, unenven floors, and a foul, musty smell were the symtpoms these homeowners noticed that led them to realize they needed to fix their crawl space.  

 

Solution

Sure-Dry Basement Systems was able to do a complete crawl space repair on this home, completely restoring this crawl space to a dry and clean space, and by doing so restoring health and energy efficiency throughout the home.  

To protect the crawl space from moisture, CleanSpace® Crawl Space Vapor Barrier was installed.  This durable, bright white crawl space liner installs on the walls and floors, preventing water vapor and humidity from passing through. By keeping your crawl space dry, you protect your structure and insulation from mold and rot.

To be able to capture any water getting in and to be able to discharge it away from the home, Sure-Dry installed their UltraSump® Sump Pump system.  The UltraSump® system can pump out in excess of 11,500 gallons of water on a fully charged battery, which is enough water to fill a small swimming pool! 

For maximum energy efficiency, Sure-Dry installed their SilverGlo™ Crawl Space Wall Insulation panels.  In addition to resisting heat conduction, SilverGlo™ boasts a radiant barrier, which reflects heat back into your crawl space for ultimate energy savings. SilverGlo™ crawl space insulation can also be installed on the perimeter of your floor framing system (rim joist) for maximum energy savings.
