Challenge

Glenn contacted Dry Pro concerned with the piers under his modular home. He was also interested in having his crawlspace sealed. Nick with Dry Pro went out to inspect Glenn's property. During his inspection, Nick saw that the wood shims were not touching the girders. He also saw some moisture coming into the crawlspace from one of the vents that were below-grade. Nick discussed his findings with Glenn and together they were able to come up with the perfect system for the home. 

Solution

Eddie and Tommy from the Structural Repair Crew started the repair by shimming the existing piers in the crawlspace. After, Todd and Jose from the waterproofing crew installed a 10mil CleanSpace Starter System, Sedona Dehumidifier with Condensate Pump and new crawlspace door to seal off the crawlspace. They also installed a vent well to keep water from coming in through the below-grade vent.  

Glenn was very happy with both crews and the repairs they made. He said he was really impressed that our waterproofing crew took the extra time to level out some of the bumpy areas in his crawlspace.
