A Greenbrier County resident contacted Basement Systems of WV when a crawlspace under her bedroom started causing problems.
What started off with the bedroom door not closing soon evolved into a downhill sloping floor and a musty smell in the bedroom. The entire left side of the house was starting to settle, but that was easily handled by stabilizing and lifting the home with SmartJack® Crawl Space Stabilizers with supplemental beams.
Made specifically for sagging crawl spaces, the SmartJack® Crawl Space Stabilizer not only provides supplemental support to your failing structure but can also often lift failing floor joists or beams, restoring them to their original position. The SmartJack®'s portable size allows it to be installed in even the tightest of crawl spaces. This crawl space support system is unique in that it's made of strong, corrosion-resistant, galvanized steel. Because your system will not develop rust, it will remain adjustable for years, should you need to perform future adjustments.
The project also included the installation of a SmartSump pump system with liner, cast iron M53 pump, CleanPump Stand, an airtight lid with an airtight floor drain, and a Remote WaterWatch alarm system. A discharge line was added to the right wall and was fitted with an IceGuard fitting which helps prevent flooding caused by clogged or frozen discharge lines. A LawnScape Outlet was also added to the end of the line.
Additionally, a trench was created around the perimeter of the crawlspace in order to capture ground water intrusion and direct it towards the pump for removal. A Drainage Mat was also placed covering the entire floor of the crawlspace in order to help control the earth's moisture and add a layer of protection for the CleanSpace liner.
Finally, the project included the installation of a SaniDry Sedona Air System with a stand to keep humidity low, help prevent mold and help reduce odors while increasing the overall air quality inside of the home. The condensate line from the SaniDry drains to the SmartSump liner.
