Case Studies: Pendergrass, Georgia | Crawlspace Encapsulation
This home in Pendergrass, Georgia posed numerous challenges. The root of this home’s crawlspace issues originated due to the extremely poor drainage system in the space. Without a properly working drainage system, this crawlspace environment was dirty, dusty, and damp. All of these problems were affecting the air quality of the home above it while also increasing the homeowner’s energy bill.
Since this homeowner called AquaGuard, we had numerous solutions to all of these challenges. CleanSpace was the number one priority for this crawlspace. This drain matting covers the entire crawlspace – floors, walls, and columns. CleanSpace makes the crawlspace much more energy efficient while also allowing the space to become usable storage. To fix the drainage issues, AquaGuard installed EZ Flow, which immediately captures any intruding water. EZ Flow connects to the LawnScape that was installed, which is the primary exterior drainage unit. These two systems work together to ensure that all water is captured and drained out of the crawlspace properly. To resolve the dampness in the space, a TripleSafe pumping system was used along with a pump discharge unit. Because of all of these installations, the crawlspace is no longer prone to water intrusion and humidity issues. Lastly, vent covers were installed to ensure that this crawlspace had maximum efficiency!
