BRS Pros helped Thomas & Brandi with the crawl space and here are some steps we took…
Hydra Channel – A clean trench was dug adjacent to the foundation footing along the front, right side of the interior perimeter foundation walls. The Hydra-Channel was installed according to manufacture’s instructions adjacent to the footing. The Hydra-Channel engineered fusion welded high strength polyethylene water system will remove storm water up to 70% faster than a pipe and stone system, it will allow water to flow freely to the in-ground sealed sump pump/basin located in the left front interior of the crawl space. The Hydra-Channel system will carry a five year transferable warranty to prevent water on top of the ground liner.
Sump Pump – Installed our GrateSump basin with removable (flush with floor) lid covered with stone in left front corner of crawl space (as looking at the front door). The system includes 1/3 HP cast iron primary pump with dual float cage that protects debris from float. Included is deluxe controller that monitors pump and power conditions and will sound an alarm if problems are detected or a high water warning in the sump. Additionally, it activates the pump weekly to exercise and extend the pumps life.
Liner & Radon Ready – Installed our Premium (walk on, store on) 15-mil white 100% woven reinforced radon ready crawl space system. The liner was mechanically fastened with nails designed for foundation walls to provide a permanent fastening system. (Caulking or taping liner to foundation walls is a temporary system and will become a maintenance issue.) The premium ground liner was nailed/sealed approximately 6″ to 12″ above the earth in the crawl space to the foundation wall. A radon piping system was installed below the ground liner, the piping system will be used in the future when the home is tested for radon gas and requires a complete radon system. 15-mil woven ground liner will control moisture vapor and dampness from the ground. Most crawlspace liners are partially reinforced, our woven liner is 100% reinforced and tough unlike competitive brand liners that are only 10% reinforced. This product will not off gas (known on Google as “crawlspace cat urine odor”, go ahead and check it out), we guarantee it!! Our woven ground and wall liners are antibacterial, meaning mold and other organic growth will not grow to the liner.
It was a pleasure helping Thomas & Brandi make their new home happy, healthy, & happy again!
