Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Condominiums in Snowshoe, WV

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015 by Randy Shillingburg

Challenge

The owners of these condominiums in Snowshoe, WV, noticed a number of problems, including sagging/spongy floors, a wet crawl space and odors in the living area above.  During a thorough inspection, Basement Systems of West Virginia noticed a severe moisture problem under the structure, as well as a number of structural issues.

Solution

Basmement Systems of West Virginia installed a waterproofing system in the crawl space under the structure, including drainage matting, a CleanSpace vapor barrier and SmartDrain system.  In addition, we installed SilverGlo insulation and EverLast doors to make the crawl space much warmer.  To address the structural issues, we installed SmartJacks with concrete footers throughout the crawl space, restoring the structural integrity of the building.

When the project was completed, the air was much healthier in the living space above, the humidity level was controlled, and the floors in the condominiums were strongly supported and no longer spongy.
