When crawl spaces are high in humidity or moisture. Mold and mildew can wreak havoc on wood and duct work.
A SmartJack System was installed along the main beams of the house to effectively support the sagging beams and floor joists. SmartJacks can support loads over 60,000 pounds.
Moisture control and waterproofing was then added with a Complete CleanSpace Encapsulation System. This system seals crawl spaces and transformed Eric and Kim's nasty damp and moldy crawl space into a clean, dry space where mold can't grow. The subfloor was level again and the homeowners were thrilled!
These homeowners in Moncks Corner, SC called Lowcountry Basement Systems with foundation issues. They had seen an ad on Charleston’s Fox 24 and reached out, worried about their floors sinking and spots and cracks going up their walls. They did not want the problem to get worse and more cracks to appear!
The inspection showed the homeowners just how bad it was in their crawl space. Water had accumulated, and the moisture had caused the piers supporting the main beams to sink into the ground. Moisture had also caused mold and mildew to grow rampant. A custom solution was put in place for the homeowners to fix their foundation issues. First steel SmartJacks would be installed to support the main beam, then a Complete CleanSpace Encapsulation System would seal the crawl space from moisture.
