Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Crawl Space Encapsulated in Maspeth, Queens, NY
The homeowner living in this Maspeth, Queens NY property noticed she had a sinking floor in her porch. The porch was above her crawl space, so she suspected something was wrong with the crawl space beams. Crawl space specialist Nick Biris came out to the property and inspected the area. He found a cold crawl space that was costing the homeowner money on heating, and unsafe sagging beams.
Quality 1st Basement Systems installed CleanSpace vapor barrier to keep this crawl space moisture free. In order to save the homeowner money on heating, Quality 1st Basement Systems installed SilverGlo crawl space insulation. SilverGlo insulates the crawl space at the source of the cold - on the walls. It uses graphite to reflect heat and keep the area warm. The old crawl space doors were rotting and rusted, so Quality 1st Basement Systems installed waterproof crawl space doors. To support the porch, SmartJack crawl space jacks were installed to lift the beams back into place. SmartJacks are made out of galvanized steel. Now this crawl space saves the homeowner money, and her porch floor is no longer sinking!
