"I have an intuition about things and people and BECAUSE of the culture and Layne, Judy, Dustin and the “family” is why I work here, even if I don’t show it or cannot participate in a lot of after work events. I feel a great loyalty to this company, and striving to make Layne (and all) proud of me is a great motivation, the constant push to improve ourselves that they offer, not so much the money, even though that part of the equation is important to them (and keeping my job!) I could have taken several other jobs by now, but the challenge is here, at Frontier!"
This home owner’s daughter struggles with asthma and allergies. The moisture in this crawl space provided the perfect atmosphere for mold growth. The damage to the floor joist was obvious. The quality of the air the family was breathing upstairs was less visible but affecting the health of the family.
Encapsulating the crawl space with a 20 mil CleanSpace liner will control the space with conditioned air, preventing the elements needed for mold growth. Creating safer, healthier air for this Cookeville family.
Although its not common to need or want to go into your crawlspace regularly it is a very important component of a home. A wet crawlspace will cause problems to this support structure so it's a worthwhile investment to ensure it is adequately protected.
The family has lived in this home for over 30 years. Over the past 3 years, they have noticed the porch step dropping.
The family does not plan on moving and was worried about the aesthetics but also wanted to protect the value of the home.
The homeowners had noticed problems with their recent purchase of this 90's home as soon as the first heavy rainfall came. After 5 inches of rainfall, they had issues of leaks coming from the crawl space running through an interior wall and into their garage. Now that is a problem that no one wants to have!
They knew that this problem could only lead to bigger issues, such as smelly odors and uneven floors, so they gave us a call. We decided to seal their crawl space with CleanSpace drainage matting and liner, as well as add a sump pump, so there is no leaking or flooding. We also installed the very powerful and energy efficient SaniDry dehumidifier to help with mold and mildew problems.
The family now has a permanent solution AND a healthy crawl space!
The relative humidity in this crawl space was 80%! That's way to high! Controlling this space was important to the family to protect the plumbing under the house but also a healthier environment in the home above.
The inside inspection revealed groundwater seepage, mold, open vents, and pests. The insulation was dirty, heavy from the moisture, and falling down. It was doing more harm than good for the floor above.
Encapsulating this space was the answer to water, pest, insulation, allergies, and wood rot concerns.
This basement not only had a waterproofing system installed but also new concrete floor poured in to create a dry, clean basement storage area.
Part of a crawl space encapsulation is a secured, non-organic, insulated entry covering. The door should have an air tight seal and be made of a material that will not mold or mildew. The EverLast door is a the perfect permanent solution, keeping unwanted pest out, moisture and temperature controlled.
The previous owners encapsulation was initially built without a Sump Pump in 2015, we returned to install a TripleSafe Single Pump system and regrade the crawlspace drainage to direct water seepage to the new Sump system. Completeing the water management system and keeping the crawl space dry after heavy rains.
Our CleanSpace liner is 20 mil thick and is installed over drainage matting to increase durability and allow for the flow of water to the sump pump system. The CleanSpace wall liner is 12 mil thick and is designed to fully encapsulate brick walls and columns within the crawl space.
From sleeping with the sump pump on rainy nights to a beautiful and healthy living space.
The family spent many stormy nights baby sitting their sump pump to protect the basement.
The basement was finished when we met this Nashville family. However, was not a peaceful or welcoming environment due to flooding and frustration.
Old sump pump removed, damaged materials gone; the basement is now protected by TipleSafe Sump Pump.
Confident in the permanent solution the basement has been completely finished to a cozy and welcoming living space.
The family had spent many sleepless nights babysitting the basement sump pump. The old sump pump had a history of disappointing and leaving the basement flooded.
Upgrading the old system to a new system was necessary. The new sump pump system is a TripleSafe System with 2 cast iron Zoheller sump pumps and an UltraSump.
Steel beams and Smart Jacks reinforce the floors of this Elkton, Ky home. Mold and moisture have damaged the original lumbar allowing for the home to sag.
The family of this 6 year old home in Franklin TN was worried about mold in the crawl space. They noticed the crawl space was damp and worried how that affected the air quality of the air in the home above. The family had allergies and air quality pays a large part on their comfort in the home.
Sealing and insulating the crawl space to include a 20 mil vapor barrier and a small-in-size, but mighty in capabilities, dehumidifier was installed in the crawl space. With temperature and moisture controlled mold and mildew were no longer a threat to the family.
This beautiful home in Franklin Tennessee was showing signs of high humidity in the crawl space. To eliminate mold, mildew, and any future structural concerns this home owner made the educated decision to encapsulate. Choosing a permanent solution with a lifetime warranty to protect this home.
