Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Insulation of a crawl space in Saint-Chrysostome, Qc
Mr. Jean-Pierre had lived in this house in Saint-Chrysostome for a few years now and he had the impression that the air quality was not normal; there was a lot of humidity upstairs. When our team completed their assessment, they found the source of the problem; an uncovered crawl space. Our team also realized, however, that the foundation was not being supported in the right way. So they suggested a screwed steel stake to fix the situation. As for the crawl space, they used several products, such as TerraBlock, SilverGlow and CleanSpace. The customer now enjoys an energy-efficient and solid home.
Insufficient Foundation structure
A foundation support pile system is a cost-effective underpinning solution for repairing and often correcting foundation damage with minimal disruption to the home.
The stake that supported the house was unstable
It is not only old damaged houses that require stabilization of their foundations; new foundations can also be stabilized during construction. Screw pile systems are an excellent option for better stabilization.
Installation of screwed steel piles
The screw pile system used by our team is a safe way to support small structures like porches and patios, structures that have aged or in situations where the soil under the new building is poor.
The uncovered crawl space
It is a very bad idea to have a crawl space of earth, ventilated or unconditioned concrete, under a house. The earth has a very high humidity level, and this water vapor easily travels through the crawl space and then up into the house.
CleanSpace encapsulating membrane
The crisp white side brightens the crawl space a lot using available light, so you can easily see that your crawl space is free from mold, bugs and grime. CleanSpace liner is tough enough for you to crawl over or store items in. The coating completely stops the penetration of mold.
