    Barns Sinking on Slab in Sparta

    Problem: Two entire barn style buildings with full solar pannel roof tops (120+ panels costing $500 each), built on top of slabs which are sinking.

    Solution: Drill holes as required to inject the PolyLEVEL solution. The man door was even lifted with this application and is level once again, being fully operational.

  • Sealing Crawl Space Vents, Southwestern ON
    Before
    Sealing Crawl Space Vents, Southwestern ON
    After

    Sealing Crawl Space Vents, Southwestern ON

    Problem:  Open crawl space vents allow for the outside air to easily enter a crawl space. Fluctuations in weather combined with the naturally damp and humid environment in a crawl space means a home is likely to have cold floors, higher humidity and a damp, musty smell.

    Open crawl space vents are also an invitation to pests to live under your home!

    Solution: We replaced all the open vents and installed airtight vent covers. Although the covers are only part of creating a healthy and dry crawl space environment – it’s an important step!

    A Challenging Multi-Level Dirt Crawl Space, Oxford County

    Problem: This multi-level dirt floor crawl space was a challenge successfully met by our crew! The open vents were resulting in cold floors during the winter. In the summer the crawl space was damp and musty; the foul odour affected the entire home.

    Solution:  We sealed off the open vents and installed a CleanSpace liner vapour barrier system; which totally encapsulates the crawl space. Our crew also applied moisture-resistant spray foam insulation to help make the home more energy efficient.

    Sump Pump in a Dirt Floor Crawl Space, Ingersoll Ontario

    Problem:  An open sump pump pit is an undesirable feature in homes: but especially when it’s located within a dirt floor crawl space. Dirt and debris can easily enter the pit causing the pump to clog and malfunction. The open pit adds unwanted excess humidity in an already challenging environment.

    Solution:  Our crew installed the Triple Safe™ sump pump and pit liner; a sump pump system designed for crawl spaces. This pump is fully compatible with our complete crawl space vapour barrier system, which the homeowners also had installed.

    With regular yearly maintenance, these homeowners now enjoy the comfort of knowing their sump pump system is efficient, working and reliable!

    Raised Driveway and Garage Entry in Chatham, ON

    Problem:  Overtime this driveway has sunk, which made entering the garage difficult and hard on the car. The other areas on the driveway were unlevel and a tripping hazard.  

    Solution:  Our team accessed the area carefully and applied PolyLevel foam to raise the sunken areas. It’s an affordable, fast and long lasting solution.

    Fixing an Unsafe Sidewalk in Kent County ON

    Problem: Through freeze and thaw cycles the ground around and under concrete moves and shifts, causing concrete to sink and heave. Over the years the sidewalk started to lean toward the home, which directs more water into the landscaping area and ultimately the foundation. The sidewalk was very unlevel in one corner, making it a serious tripping hazard.

    Solution: Our team raised and leveled the concrete sidewalk; making it not only safer, but more attractive and better for the home’s water management system.

    Crawl Space Clean Up Bryanston, ON

    Problem: This crawl space needed help! All of the incorrectly installed insulation is falling everywhere. The damp earth is causing wood-rot and energy loss is high.

    Solution: We cleaned out all the old insulation and debris. Then, we encapsulated the earth with our CleanSpace product which gives the space a beautiful white finish. At the end, we insulated the walls with spray foam. What a transformation!

    From Inefficient and Damp to Sealed and Dry

    This unsealed crawl space had very high humidity which was causing problems in this Dover Centre home. The issues in the crawl space were manifesting throughout the home: musty smells and drafty, cold floors in the winter.

    Our team completely sealed the crawl space; now it’s healthy, clean, dry and efficient.

    If you would like a clean, dry and efficient crawl space, please call us for your free inspection and estimate, or submit your information online. 866-277-1277

    Fixing a Gravel Filled Crawl Space in Essex County, ON

    Problem: Many homeowners believe that putting a layer of gravel in their crawl space will solve the water and moisture problems. This isn’t true and doesn’t work. 

    Gravel is porous and it does not stop water from moving or collecting.

    Fixing a crawl space with a gravel floor presents two challenges:

    1. It is difficult to dig trenches and create drains to properly direct the water out of the crawl space compared to dirt.

    2. To further keep the humidity level acceptable and encapsulate the space, a very heavy duty liner is required, as the liner will be more prone to rips and tears with the rough gravel below it.

    Solution:

    • Our experienced team members were able to create trenches and drains to effectively move the water into the crawl space sump pump.

    • Our CleanSpace®️ Liner is super heavy duty and durable enough to withstand the rocky floor encapsulated below.

    If you have a challenging crawl space, please reach out to us for a permanent solution: 1-866-277-1277

    Creating a Dry and Sealed Crawl Space Windsor, ON

    Problem: This home’s crawl space was damp and musty. Through what is known as The Stack Effect, this undesirable air made its way into the home, resulting in musty, damp and mouldy smells. Some of the fibreglass insulation on the exterior walls was wet and had lost its insulating properties.

    Solution: We improved the drainage in the space and encapsulated the dirt floor with our heavy duty CleanSpace crawl space vapour barrier. Our team also added mould and mildew proof SprayFoam Insulation on the exterior walls and also as a sealant on the vapour barrier.

    Tight Crawl Space Project Windsor, ON

    Problem: This tight and musty area under the home was starting to cause mould growth on the wood supports. Wood is everywhere inside a home and if it begins to rot due to high humidity and moisture, it can be a very costly repiar. We needed to get to work here right away!

    Solution: We cleaned out all the debris of this small space. Then we installed our Clean Space Encapsulation System (the white liner). Once that was installed, our crew came in and spray foam insulated the headers (above the foundation wall where a lot of air leaks get in). The space is now safe and healthy.

    Cold Floors Over a Crawl Space Fix in Windsor, ON

    Problem:  Cold floors, high utility bills and a musty smell throughout the home prompted this homeowner to contact us for help.  

    Solution: Our team of crawl space specialists removed the old, wet and ineffective fiberglass and rigid insulation, and sealed off the crawl space against the heat/cold cycle which effects the crawl space air (and makes the home smell musty due to mould and mildew growth). Our installers finished off the job with Spray Foam Insulation.

    Spray foam insulation is one of the newest and most-advanced types of insulation available. More and more home and business owners are choosing to have spray foam insulation installed because of its unique properties.

    Unlike fiberglass and other “fluffy” insulation materials, Spray Polyurethane Foam can’t be damaged by moisture. Once installed, spray foam won’t ever fall out of place or lose its R-value because of compression like fiberglass can.

    This homeowner will now enjoy improved comfort and lower utility bills!

    Dry Basement and No More Musty Smells in London, ON

    Problem: There was plenty of evidence in this basement of water penetration. Aside from the appearance of mould and stains, the entire home smelled damp and musty. The high humidity caused some wood furniture to grow mould – a sure sign that it’s well past the time to fix the wet basement problem! 

    Solution: Our team waterproofed the leaky walls and improved the overall drainage in the basement. No more water entering. No more musty, damp smells and no more toxic mould!
