This old and outdated basement in Providence, KY had so much potential. Aside from installing a complete waterproofing system, this homeowner opted to upgrade their basement windows as well. The purpose of basement windows is to add appeal to your space by bringing in natural sunlight. If those windows are rusted, covered in debris, or doing little more than affording a view of an old, rusty window well, then they're not doing their job
Our EverLast Windows are made specifically for the basement environment with vinyl, which will hold up for the lifetime of your basement. They're energy-efficient, designed with double-paned, low-E glass, they are much more energy efficient than the single-paned, steel-framed windows that are the industry standard.
Homeowner John B., in Albion, IL started noticing water building up in his crawl space. If left alone, humidity and excess moisture can lead to mold growth, wood rot, and pest infestations. Crawl space moisture often migrates upstairs through the "stack effect," contributing to structural damage, musty odors, and high energy bills.
Our team first had to go in and perform mold remediation. Next our team installed a waterproofing system in the crawl space that included a SmartSump Crawl Space sump pump system and EZ Flow Drainage. The last step was to install a durable vapor barrier made of a 20-mil material similar to a pool liner called CleanSpace. CleanSpace® 20 mil vapor barrier is puncture and tear resistant. An anti-microbial agent is blended into the liner to kill mold and bacteria. John will now have peace of mind knowing that his crawl space in Albion, IL is clean and dry.
