Although this crawl space was very clean with little evidence of pests and no standing water, the unencapsulated space still affected the home above by what is known as the stack effect. https://www.advancedbasementsystems.net/home-mold/stack-effect.html Resulting in problems such as:
Damp, musty smells
Higher than healthy levels of humidity
Less-than-desirable heating and cooling costs
The best method to remedy these problems is by completely sealing off the crawl space from the outside environment! Our Advanced Basement Systems team was happy to help these Chatham homeowners.
Problem: These Windsor homeowners were plagued with problems related to their leaky basement: damage to stored items, damp and cold basement, and musty smells throughout their entire home.
Solution: After a thorough inspection, we created a plan to waterproof the leaky walls. To help improve the comfort of the basement and the entire home, we installed ThermalDry®️ Basement Radiant Wall Barrier, which reflects back heat, improving heating and cooling efficiency. We also installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump System with a battery backup, which will keep the basement dry even during the heaviest of rains and in the event of a power failure.
This basement is now dry, healthy, comfortable, efficient and protected!
