Beam Replacement, Joist Sistering, French Drains, Sump Pumps, Insulation Removal, Encapsulation, and Dehumidifier Install
Mr. Nocella was unaware of the crawl space flooding issue until our initial inspection. There was about 1" of water under the plastic along the entire front of the house. This hidden standing water issue spanned out over several years caused the wood framing supporting the floors and walls of the home to experience major rot and damage. The first project to begin was the french drain and sump pumps to address the standing water and flooding of the crawl space. Once the water was removed we performed the removal and replacement over several main girder beams and sistered several dozen floor joists. Finally, the full encapsulation of the dry crawl space and installation of the dehumidifier was the long-term solution that Mr. Nocella wanted to have installed to ensure long-term protection of his home and peace of mind.
