Dry Pro Foundation and Crawlspace Specialists Case Studies: Crawlspace Encapsulation and Waterproofing in Richfield, NC

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018 by Nicole Valardi

Challenge

John in Richfield, NC was doing some research on a company to help him with the water in his crawlspace. He struggled to find a company in this area to do the repair but noticed that Dry Pro serviced the area he was in. After looking over our website and reading our customer reviews, he decided to contact us for this repair. 

System Design Specialist, Kelley went out to inspect the property and walk John and his wife through our repair process. During his inspection, he found mold, falling insulation, standing water and evidence of past water intrusion.  Kelley went over his findings with John and his wife and designed a full encapsulation solution to ensure they would never have to worry about their crawlspace again. 

Solution

First, our team removed the sagging insulation and remediated the mold from the crawlspace. Once that was complete, the crew waterproofed the crawlspace by adding a French Drain system with pipe & gravel around the perimeter of the crawlspace. They also installed a SuperSump Pump exit line and LawnScape outlet. 

After they encapsulated the crawlspace by wrapping all of the interior walls and columns with CleanSpace 10mil, they taped and foamed the exterior walls using SilverGlo, hung wires, sealed all vents and openings and laid 10mil CleanSpace on the crawlspace floor. 

They finished off the project by installing a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to condition the crawlspace air. They also installed a Relative Humidity Monitor to show John and his family the current humidity levels in the crawlspace. 

Once the repairs were complete, the Foreman John did a quality assurance check with John and his wife to make sure that all of their expectations were met. John was extremely satisfied with the repairs on his home and said he looked forward to having annual maintenance done the next year.
