Kill The Mold

A lot of money is being made by way of FEAR. There are some excellent videos describing how firms use mold (or something that looks like mold) to sell expensive mold remediation jobs.  

However, it would be senseless not to fog for mold whether work is being done or not. 

But we fog 100% of all our jobs. It's not an option. It's completely safe, odorless, and cost effective.

Exterior Wall Drainage

This system has been around for forty years. Its withstood the test of time. During a rain, the water table in the ground rises and comes up through the expansion gaps all the way around the basement. You cant stop the water table. But with this reliable, simple system the water will come up behind this guide and flow to a sump pump area and expel it out of the house.

There are systems like this that were installed in the 70s and are still working just fine.

Vent Fans

These fans have wrecked a lot of homes when companies misapply them. These are to be installed in encapsulated crawlspaces ONLY. Pulling warm, moist air through an unsealed crawlspace actually CAUSES mold.

We install these in homes after we have encapsulated them. Extremely long life and reliable

Sump Pump Systems

With Every Proposal, USR Offers Options That Fit the Application. This is our Mini-System that Handles Smaller Crawlspace Standing Water Issues 

Felt Underlay

This 1/8 Inch Felt Underlay is optional and we itemize it on your proposal. We can put felt under all of the floor poly or just in areas of high traffic. It serves as a nice cushion between the poly and the ground. it evenly distributes moisture to make it dry faster and it adds insulation from the Earth.

Footer Tile Drain

USR builds footer tile drains when they are required, and only where they are required. Frankly, a few firms put a trench in every crawlspace. It's called a Smart Drain. We aren't convinced that's too smart. Very often, only one wall needs a drain. We aren't a cookie-cutter firm. The system we put together is for your specific needs, and then we guarantee the system for 20 years. 

Crawlspace Doors

Most homes have a functional crawlspace door. We build them all the time in a variety of ways depending on the situation. 

Crawlspace Cleanout

The cleanout can be the most most critical part of job. There are videos online showing where a giant, NYSE company used clear, cheap 6 mil poly on the floor that you can see through. They hadn't done any type of cleanout at all. There were old light bulbs, cans and bottles under the poly.

When you build an encapsulation, its the last chance to do anything to the ground. We take pride and pictures of the cleanout before and after.

20 Year Warranty

 Google "The cost or removing fiberglass insulation from a crawlspace. "You will find the national average to be $1.08 per square foot. We charge a fraction of that, and we can haul it away or bag it up and leave it with you. 

At the homeowner's option, we can install 1.5" - 2.0" foam board to the exterior walls

Insulating Band Joists

During our inspection, we check to see if there is air loss through the ban joists. 

If so, we recommend and itemize the cost of insulating the ban joists.

We also use open cell foam. Click on the button below to see the results of insulating with foam.
