Can I Use My Crawl Space?
Small in nature and most commonly uninhabitable, a crawl space is unused due to its lack of dependability.
It can be a tough decision to decide to store valuable and unused items in a crawl space knowing that at any moment, it can flood, swarm with bugs, or even become a breeding ground for mold.
So the question is, can a crawl space be a dry, healthy, clean and usable space in your home?
Yes, it can!
American Dry Basement Systems’ SuperCrete method will allow you easy access to vital plumbing & electrical wiring, and create an optimal storage space in your home that you can depend on and trust.
Homeowners who value every inch of their homes will appreciate the SuperCrete method.
Remove All Debris
The first step of the process involves removing all objectionable contents and debris (the cleaning) to ensure the absolute cleanest, most efficient crawl space sealing job.
Once the crawlspace is clean, it is sanitized using an entirely green all-natural botanical disinfectant that kills mold, fungus, and bacteria.
Our expert installers seal very wet crawl spaces, with a 2 to 3-inch layer of three-quarter inch washed stone, which is an excellent tool for drainage. A thick 20-mil poly sheeting is used to cover the three-quarter inch stone. This sheeting covers the entire crawlspace floor, acting as a vapor barrier.
The stone and polyvinyl “vapor barrier” sheeting are covered by a 3 to 4-inch layer of SuperCrete. The SuperCrete is poured wall-to-wall sealing the entire floor surface and is elevated several inches up the wall around the whole perimeter of the crawlspace.
Waterproof & Dry
The SuperCrete will adhere to every nook and cranny of the wall completing a perfect seal. The strength and waterproof characteristics of SuperCrete creates a dry and structurally sound storage place for your home.
