    Crawlspace Encapsulation in Detroit, TX

    This customer called asking for some assistance in getting a crawl space encapsulation for his home. They were having obvious water issues in their crawlspace. Their crawlspace was very wet, all over, and they had water pooling in many areas. The entire crawlspace was all wet, and very muddy. They needed a remedy for this issue. This crawl space clearance was only 2 feet high and had 2,600 sq ft that needed to have an encapsulation.

    Olympic Restoration Systems was contacted for an assessment of their crawl space. We visited the property and proposed a quote to the customer. They proceeded with a crawl space encapsulation for their home.

    Basement Waterproofing in Van Alstyne, TX

    This homeowner called after he recently purchased a home in Van Alstune, TX with a wet basement. He was not concerned with converting the basement to a living space, but he wanted to find a solution to keep the basement dry. When one of our System Designs Specialists, Ross, performed a free basement inspection and waterproofing estimate, he found many cracks in the foundation and walls that would allow water to come in. He also found an old, insufficient sump pump that was not able to keep up with the amount of moisture coming into the basement. Ross proposed a solution to the homeowner that included installing a WaterGuard track along the perimeter of the basement, lining the walls with a CleanSpace vapor barrier, installing a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier, and replacing the old sump pump with a SmartSump sump pump. The homeowner was pleased with the estimate and proceeded with basement waterproofing from Olympic Restoration Systems.

    This customer was having issues with bugs coming into their house that seemed to be coming up from the crawl space through cracks in the floors. He said that they had recently moved to this area and had only been in this home for about 1 year. The customer said that it looks like there was an encapsulation installation attempt years ago, but they only got about ½ way done. It is not quite what it should be to be effective. Their crawl space needed to have some attention, or an upgrade to get them the protection that they were looking for, for their home. The customer said that they have ants coming in every nook and cranny from the floors. Part of their home is on a slab, part of it is a split level, and part of it is on a pier and beam. They were using a dehumidifier inside the home, in the area that the split level was located. In their previous home back east, they had an encapsulation in their crawl space. They knew and understood the benefits that it provided for their home and was interested in getting a quote for an encapsulation for this new home.

    Olympic Restoration Systems was contacted for an assessment of their home. We had a Specialist visit the property and they proposed a quote to the customer. They proceeded with a crawl space encapsulation for their home from Olympic Restoration Systems.

We installed two small pumps to move the water from the dehumidifiers to the sump pumps or out of the crawl space.
