Mark and Lee W., of Macon GA had been living in their home since 1996. Every time it rained they suffered. Their half basement, half crawl space created a lot of problems when it got wet. Mudslides, mold, and odors became common nuisances.
One day, Mark called Lowcountry Basement Systems and asked to have an inspector look at his problem. Brian Townsel, an inspector for Lowcountry Basement Systems, did a thorough examination of the foundation. Brian recommended sealing off the crawl space and crawl space vents.
CleanSpace Liner covered the exposed earth to prevent more mudslides. A SmartSump with a WaterWatch II alarm pumped the water away from the foundation and the vents were sealed to keep the rainwater out.
The project went off without a hitch. Mark and Lee were able to use their space downstairs to store Christmas and Fall decorations. Best of all, no more mud in the house and no more odors.
