Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Vapor Barrier in Shelton CT

Monday, March 28th, 2016 by Luis Serrano

Challenge

The homeowners in this Shelton home had a crawl space that not only was damp dirty and unappealing but it also was damaging the home. The floors started to sag from all the moisture and they were worried it would get worse. The wood supporting the house was covered in mold, so if it was left untreated any longer it could have eventually started to sag. 

 

 

Solution

They contacted the experts at CT Basement Systems and Glen Kerpchar came out and took care of all the concerns the homeowners had. We installed our SmartJack™ to make sure that the home was stable and upright as it should be. Some of the benefits of our SmartJack™ support system are: 

  • Supports loads of more than 60,000 lbs
  • Galvanized for corrosion resistance
  • Installs in limited-access areas
  • The ONLY crawl space support jack that addresses problem soils

Once the support was taken care of we installed our Crawl Space Vapor Barrier, which totally separates and protects the crawl space interior from outdoor conditions, keeping the space clean and dry. Even though the crawl space doesnt get much use, it is very important to be taken care of to make sure that the floors dont sag and that the damage cost you $$$.

 

The home owners have a crawl space now that not only is dry and supported but it's so clean that you can store linens in it!
