In Owensville, Ohio, a resident noticed that the floor in their home was sagging in the room above their crawlspace. To find out what was happening, they investigated their crawlspace and discovered that much of the support beams had been affected by wood rot. After seeing a crawlspace repair commercial on TV, they called us.
Thankfully, we were able to help the Buhler family.
First, we replaced the rotten wood in the crawlspace. Then, we installed SmartJacks to help support the floor above. After we installed the SmartJacks, we encapsulated the crawlspace with our CleanSpace vapor barrier. Finally, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump to keep the crawlspace dry. By encapsulating this house's crawlspace, we were able to level the floor in the room above. We were also able to keep the house more energy efficient.

Using PolyLEVEL, an expansive polyurethane foam we lift and level sunken concrete slabs. The foam expands beneath the surface of the concrete lifting the sunken concrete slab. The foam cures over the course of a day leaving a powerful and lightweight foundation beneath the slab. PolyLEVEL is the preferred method over traditional forma of mudjacking or slab jacking.
A CleanSpace Encapsulation System was installed in Owensville, Ohio. A CleanSpace Encapsulation System is an essential part of keeping your crawl space and your home healthy. Some of the products included in this project are CleanSpace Liner, CleanSpace Drainage Matting, CleanSpace Vent Covers, A SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage System, SmartJack Floor Supports, and a TURTL.
CleanSpace Drainage Matting is installed between the ground and the CleanSpace Liner. The Drainage Matting provides a channel for the water to flow out of the crawl space. The CleanSpace Liner provides a moisture-proof barrier between the ground and the home. The CleanSpace Liner is made out of a 20-mil-thick plastic liner similar to a pool liner. Also installed were CleanSpace Vent Covers. The vent covers seal the existing vents helping to create an airtight seal.
The SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage System is used to remove the water from the crawl space. It has a WaterWatch Alarm and an Airtight Lid with an AirTight Floor Drain.
SmartJacks are steel piers that are used to support a floor that is unlevel, sagging, or creaking. A steel pier is cut to size and installed under the floor that needs to be supported. An adjustable screw is used to jack the floor up into place.
The Turtl is a crawl space access well that makes it easier to get into the crawl space.
These products all work together to make this crawl space more comfortable to maintain and access. For more information on how these products would work in your home, schedule a free estimate with a Certified Inspector.
