Before Dry Guys, this crawl space in Pedricktown, NJ experienced high humidity levels and musty smells. Even though the home had a poured concrete foundation, moisture from outside was still able to seep through and collect, turning this space into a scary horror show. The humidity levels quickly became too much for the homeowner. During the winter, the floors would be ice cold making it impossible to walk around without having to wear multiple pairs of socks. The summer months would leave the house with a pungent, musty smell easily noticed by anyone who opened the front door. Dry Guys arrived swiftly to stop these issues. Our CleanSpace Encapsulation System and Drainage Matting were installed to stop moisture and humidity. SilverGlo Insulation was installed along the walls to prevent the homes controlled air from seeping out and outside air from coming in. With our system installed, this family is safe and comfortable, even the dog enjoys napping on the warm floor.
This home in Chester Heights, PA, experienced high humidity levels in the crawl space. Humidity is capable of serious damage, especially in homes and can cause discomfort, mold, mildew, and even comprise the structural integrity of the home. Wanting to fix this issue, the homeowners called Dry Guys. Our System Designer came out to find what was causing the humidity issue and to prescribe a solution. Having a dirt floor and open vents are easy ways for humidity to seep into the home. To stop this, our team installed our patented CleanSpace Encapsulation System. This product creates a sealed environment, inhospitable to mold. Our one of a kind product called SilverGlo was used to insulate the walls and joists' pockets where 60% of heat loss occurs. SilverGlo is engineered with a polystyrene material and infused with graphite, preventing it from absorbing moisture. There's a thin foil sheet on the front that reflects 97% of your heating or cooling back into your home. The infused graphite gives it a higher R-value than traditional fiberglass. The final step in the dehumidification process is the installation of our SaniDry Sedona air scrubber. This system eliminates humidity in the air and filters out any lingering bacteria. The SaniDry Sedona is designed to be energy efficient yet powerful and even drains directly into the SmartSump for your convenience! Our products work together to create an energy efficient, drier, healthier environment in your home!
The homeowners of this house in Elmer, NJ, were getting ready to rent to new tenants. Wanting to make sure everything was alright, they called Dry Guys to inspect their crawl space. Upon arrival, our System Designer quickly discovered that everything wasn't okay. High moisture levels caused the fiberglass insulation to become saturated and heavy, pulling apart from the floor above. Fiberglass also contains some organic material, so in a damp, humid space, mold and mildew thrive. The Dry Guys Team came out to remedy this situation. We removed all the old, damp insulation and installed our SilverGlo Insulation on the walls. SilverGlo is engineered with polystyrene, infused with graphite. This creates a closed cell product that does not absorb water and has improved insular properties, saving the homeowners money on their heating bills. CleanSpace Encapsulation System and CleanSpace Drainage Matting were then installed. Our patented Encapsulation System is used to seal the crawl space, preventing humidity and water vapor from the soil to pass through. By sealing the crawl space, this home is now protected from mold and rot along with deterring allergenic spores and odors, keeping the home dry and safe.
This basement in Elmer, NJ, was having problems with water coming in through the foundation since the ground began to settle which caused a pipe, that was running through the ground to the wall, to drop a quarter of an inch and form a gap in the cinderblock wall and around the pipe entry. The building itself had an electrical panel that is in charge of sending power throughout their building and all the branches of the bank itself. The water that was able to get inside the pipe saturated the wood panel and weakened the wall, this could not only compromise the electrical units of the building but also cause communication problems with all of the other branches too.
When Dry Guys arrived to help fix the problems, drainage matting, Z Channel, and a two-part epoxy were used to solve the issue. Behind the Cleanspace Wall that was installed, the drainage matting was placed to allow the water to drain down into our waterproofing system. Since waterproofing was done before on the wall, a product called Z Channel was needed to retrofit the Cleanspace Wall product into the WaterGuard system for drainage. A pipe penetration fix was done to make sure the Epoxy sticks to the cinderblock wall and to the pipe itself. The two-part epoxy will "follow" any leakage points to make sure water can not come through the cinderblock wall again. With all of these products and other products working together, no water will ever come in again.
(The before picture shows how much water had been absorbed into the plywood. The wall can also be seen with water. The after picture shows the Cleanspace that was used, and behind it is the drainage matting that is mention throughout the description.)
Look closely at the before picture and you'll notice a small crack running the length of the wall. This small crack is a big problem. The pressure on the outside is causing a bowing issue with the foundation that is getting worse the longer it is present. Eventually, this wall will collapse into the basement. Dry Guys recognized this and stopped the problem immediately with the PowerBrace Wall System. A series of steel I beams mounted to the floor joist and sunken into the concrete. This will freeze the wall in place and stop further damage. In time, the systems can be tightened, and slowly the wall will return to its original resting place like it was when the home was built.
After a home inspector came to this property in Ocean City, New Jersey, he found that the property had sunk and that the wooden joists holding up the first floor were sagging. When the homeowner called Dry Guys, we found that the best solution to this problem was our patented SmartJack Crawl Space Support system. Our posts provide a solid support for sagging and undersized beams, restoring stability and proper alignment to sagging floor joists in a crawl space. They are designed to be tightened over time to provide additional straightening.
