The purpose of basement windows is to add appeal to your space by bringing in natural sunlight. When your 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. So that's why we installed 4 of our EverLast Basement Windows. Our EverLast Windows are energy-efficient, vinyl-framed replacement windows. Having a covered window well keeps cold winter winds from blowing against the panes, while the Low-E double thermopane glass of EverLast Windows saves you on your energy bills. It's a small upgrade that really made a big difference in this homeowner home!
This home in Greenville, KY needed a way to stabilize their garage beams. They seemed to be sagging, and they didn't want it to become even worse than it already was. They gave us a call at Healthy Space, and Design Specialist, Damon Cheatham, was happy to come out, and see the problem.
After Damon did a thorough inspection of the home, he concluded that SmartJacks would be the best fit for this home. SmartJacks are steeled support systems used to permanently stabilize and level girders and floor joists. They don't replace the existing columns and piers but add strength and stability to what is there. They should be used to lift the above floors and walls back toward their original position, reduce floor 'bounce' caused by excessive floor joist spans, and solve the problem once and for all. Because of their design, the SmartJacks can be adjusted over time to provide additional straightening and leveling action if necessary. They can also hold up to 60,000 pounds!
A basement in Evansville, IN needed waterproofing, done to their basement when the homeowner began to have aggravated allergies and found that it could be from the basement. The bottoms of the basement walls consisted of mold spores and small water puddles on the ground. The humidity and dampness of the basement had created a thriving environment for the mold to grow, but a nightmare for the homeowner. Some mold spores produce a chemical byproduct called mycotoxins. This is a type species of mold that will compete for space with other species and in return, create chemical warfare on other molds. Having mycotoxins exist in your own home can affect your respiratory system.
Although you can not see the spores, they will leave a musty smell. To remove any mold from the basement, it has to go through mold remediation. Any mold spots are scrubbed and sprayed thoroughly. After mold remediation is completed, the homeowners have a choice as to whether or not they want annual maintenance done to monitor the area. The basement was waterproofed using CleanSpace, which will protect the vapor barrier. A WaterGuard system and TripleSafe sump pump are put in to guarantee that no water would be entering the basement. With a mold-free, water-free basement, it thrilled the homeowner to know that their health would not be at risk.

Homeowner Judy F. was worried that she might have a foundation issue because she noticed her doors starting to stick when opening and closing. Having done previous work with Healthy Spaces years ago, she knew she needed to give them a call again.
Healthy Spaces crawl space expert Mike Rogers came out to inspect the foundation and determined that it would be best to install a few products. They agreed on putting in a CleanSpace liner. CleanSpace is a 20 mil. liner that protects against mold, mildew & is tear resistant. The crawl space door they currently have is wooden and allows humidity to get into the crawl space. So we're also going to install an EverLast crawl space door that will never rust, rot, or need paint. The EverLast door creates an airtight, waterproof seal between their crawl space and the cold or humid air outside.
Healthy Spaces will also install six SmartJacks which is a support system to help reduce more cracking of the foundation. And repair the damaged joists that are currently there. Judy can now live without worry of water coming into her crawl space thanks to the great people at Healthy Spaces!
This Greenville, KY homeowner had noticed a musty smell throughout her home. After looking in her crawl space, she saw that there was a water leak that had caused an infestation of mold throughout. With a major concern for her health, she gave Healthy Spaces a call to help with her crawl space repair.
Our Design Specialist, Donnie Stuteville, arrived at the Greenville home to evaluate her mold and crawl space problems. He concluded that removing all the old 6mil vapor barrier and replacing it with a new vapor barrier, then performing mold remediation throughout the entire crawl space would need to be implemented to correctly eliminate mold from her crawl space.
Once the job was finished, this Greenville, KY homeowner enjoyed her home without worrying about her health being affected and Healthy Spaces was happy to help!
Vickie in Bremen, KY has actually been a part of our Healthy Spaces family since 2011. She originally called us out to take a look at moisture in her crawl space. Our team installed our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier, which completely seals off the house from the earth preventing and moisture or water vapor from coming up through the ground. We also installed our Smart Sump Pump which is ideal for any tight crawl space conditions, that comes equipped with an alarm. Since the original install in 2011, Vickie has continued her yearly maintenance where one of our Service Technicians comes out once a year to inspect all of the systems Healthy Spaces installed and to ensure they're all working the way that they should be.
In Graham, KY, there was a concern from a homeowner about water leaking into the basement from the walls and causing mold to grow. The water over time had caused the basement walls to lean in.

The PowerBrace system is made of zinc-plated steel beams that are custom fit to the basement wall height and secured tightly against it. The mold is removed and prevented through mold remediation. To keep water from entering the basement again, a Waterguard system and TripleSafe Sump pump is installed
