Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Crawl Space Repair, Brooklyn, NY
A homeowner in Brooklyn, New York was experiencing sagging floors in their crawl space. This was caused by high levels of moisture where the wooden floor joist and crawl space beams began to absorb that dampness. Foreman, Juan Garcia, and his crew installed TerraBlock crawl space insulation. TerraBlock is a durable crawl space insulation and liner in one that is specifically made for rough, uneven crawl space floors. SilverGlo Crawl Space Wall Insulation was installed on the crawl space walls to keep the cold out. SilverGlo and TerraBlock together keep the cold out and the heat in. Next, CleanSpace vapor barrier system was installed in the crawl space. CleanSpace is a durable, bright white liner that installs on the walls and floors preventing water vapor and humidity from passing through. To stabilize the first floor, SmartJack Crawl Space Stabilizers were installed.
