Jaynelle's favorite part of her job is that she gets to do a wide variety of things, and that she gets to approach her job with passion and creativity. She's learned a lot since she's started working with Dry Guys, and her drive to always do her best pushes her to new levels every day.
Did you know that 50% of the air you breathe comes from your crawl space? This crawl space in Mount Royal, NJ, was allowing old, musty air to flow freely through the house. On top of that, it was dirty, full of debris, and just an unuseable space. The Dry Guys Team installed our patented CleanSpace vapor barrier to keep moisture from getting through and prevent a humid environment in the crawl space. This will also help prevent mold from growing in the wood joists later on, saving the house from acquiring dangerous foundation issues. As you can see in the after picture, it looks much nicer with the CleanSpace liner and can now even be used for storage!
This basement had an old, dirty sump pump that wasn't doing a good job at keeping water out. This pump was not strong enough to handle the large amounts of water from violent rainstorms. Additionally, the French Drain underneath the basement floor was clogged with mud. As a result, parts of the basement would have puddled water and sometimes it even flooded. When the homeowner called Dry Guys, we removed the old sump pump and replaced it with our patented TripleSafe. The after picture shows the TripleSafe near the end stages of its installation. This pump is much more powerful, and has a back-up pump in case the power goes out during severe weather. In the back of the photo you can see where we were also in the process of installing a WaterGuard perimeter system. Unlike the French Drain, our WaterGuard is serviceable and won't clog. It will catch water coming in from all around the basement and take it to the pump, which will in turn take the water back outside where you don't have to worry about it.
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 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.
Water was entering this Cologne, NJ basement in the space where the wall met the floor. In the before picture, you can see the water puddling and the resulting mold that grew in the most affected areas. The house also had a musty odor, which is common in these situations. After the installation of our WaterGuard Perimeter System, the basement is dry and the mold gone. You can see how much cleaner it looks. WaterGuard catches the water as it enters the basement and directs it into your sump pump. In this case, the water is being taken to our TripleSafe, a powerful pump that can handle heavy flooding.
Do you have a musty smelling basement with ugly walls? Then you may be able to relate to this before picture. This cinder block wall is beginning to show signs of prolonged exposure to water. The homeowner simply wanted nicer looking walls and lower humidity levels in his basement. Paint can cover the walls but won't do anything about the water, and it will chip in time. Plus, paint provides food for mold to eat. In contrast, our CleanSpace vapor barrier is the perfect solution. You can see the huge difference in the appearance of the wall in our after photo. The basement is brighter, looks cleaner, and because the CleanSpace is 100% waterproof, it won't let all of that moisture from before seep through. CleanSpace does not grow mold, will not peel, and is good for unfinished basements. Should you choose to finish your basement in the future, CleanSpace will provide a good layer of protection against water so that all of your hard work doesn't get ruined.
An old, inferior pump was replaced by our SuperSump for an effective and more economical solution. The SuperSump includes a powerful Zoeller ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,500 gallons of water per hour out of your basement. The SuperSump can be installed with an optional UltraSump Battery Backup, which can pump out 11,500 gallons or more on a single charge!
