Photo Album: Fixing Another Company's Crawl Space Work in Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey

Album Description

A year before this customer gave us a call, someone "fixed" the girder and encapsulated the crawl space in this home. The company this homeowner decided to do business with at first was not insured at the time of this project and went out of business shortly afterward. Because of their deception, this particular family had no recourse. They were charged a large sum of money for a job that did not fix the problem they were having.


When we first inspected the problem we recommended an architect/engineering company we work with to help straighten out the problem. We also contacted the New Jersey Consumer Affairs Department to help get this family some financial relief. We wanted to go out of our way to try to help.

We eventually came up with a plan after discussing the most practical options and coming up with a drawing with the architect. From there, we brought it to the building department and got to work in this 20-inch-high crawl space. We installed oversized footings so we could support the house and have them in place for the new columns. We then jacked the house up. While the house was supported, we removed the girders that were installed incorrectly by the other company.

To fix this problem we installed LVL girders on new footings and columns. We also patched up the existing encapsulation material with our CleanSpace, installed a new pump system and SaniDry CX in order to control moisture down there as well. After completing the encapsulation work, we closed the floor back up and the homeowner completed some of the work themselves to keep the cost down.

Sadly, this type of thing happens to homeowners more frequently than not. They get pressured into signing a contract with someone they believe is going to fix a problem. The problem doesn't get corrected and the homeowners have to pay again. This should not be the case. We truly are the basement and crawl space experts. We display quality and craftsmanship in all that we do and we take pride in our work. We never cut corners and fix the problems the right way. Don't risk this happening to you and call us the first time.
