This case study took place in Raleigh, NC, and this homeowner realized their crawl space needed a refreshment. The homeowner noticed their crawl space had a lot of moisture in it, insulation was falling down, mold was growing, and there were some signs of wood rot. Regional Foundation and Crawl Space Repair was able to confirm the homeowner’s suspicions during our thorough inspection, and we scheduled a crew to visit the home and fix the current issues, as well as prevent further damage.
A homeowner located in Raleigh, NC, noticed an odor inside of their home, along with what felt like excessive humidity. After contemplating what it could be, the homeowner decided to check their crawl space. In the crawl space, they found a lot of moisture, insulation falling down, mold growth, and wood rot. Crawl spaces that have these symptoms can lead to further damage in the future, as well as the symptoms inside of the house- much like what this homeowner was experiencing. Crawl spaces do not get better or dry out on their own over time. Instead, specialists like our crews at Regional Foundation and Crawl Space Repair need to go out to these homes and repair the issues before they become any worse.
One of our trained and experienced crawl space crews visited this Raleigh, NC home and began the installation that the design specialist proposed to the homeowner. First and foremost, the crew removed the insulation to get rid of odors, as well as prevent mold, rot, and future odors. Our crew also installed a sump pump in the lowest area of the crawl space, as well as added an exterior discharge line to send the water out when it does get water. To prevent further mold, Regional performed structural cleaning, which reduces the current mold, as well as LumberKote, which is sprayed onto the wood to seal it and prevent further mold growth.
In order to further waterproof the crawl space, we also added CleanSpace to the entire floor and SilverGlo to the walls. The two are sealed together to form an encapsulation, and combined, they help with insulation and waterproofing in the future. Lastly, our crew installed a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to continue humidity control in the future. This Raleigh homeowner, much like many others in Eastern North Carolina, was very pleased with the results, and they already noticed a difference regarding the odors and humidity in their home. This is just another example of Regional Foundation and Crawl Space Repair’s lifetime solutions that our homeowners love.
