A very old home in Georgetown, DE had multiple concrete piers failing. The SmartJack system was installed to replace the old piers and ultimately corrected the bouncy floors.
DryZone donated a crawl space to a Habitat for Humanity home in Georgetown, DE this past week. Everyone in the company volunteered their time to help build it. With the help of everyone's time and effort and a new installation of a CleanSpace vapor barrier, the space was transformed from a muddy crawl space into a dry, healthy and beautiful space. The bright white CleanSpace vapor barrier will help keep the ground water out and save money on utility bills.
This home in Sussex County Delaware is well over 100 years old, as are many homes in the historical towns in lower Delaware. It is a wonderful home above ground and the owners have even been making improvements over the years. When they finished installing the geothermal heating lines, they went down to inspect the work and saw a wet and smelly cellar. This lead them to add the crawlspace and cellar as the next repair on their list. Both husband and wife had been annoyed with the springy floors in the living room and new that something had to be out of the ordinary down there. Once they saw the inspector's photos and solutions, they were excited to get the floors fixed properly. Several SmartJacks were installed to replace the old concrete pillars, many of which had completely fallen over. SmartJacks are sturdy and adjustable, just in case they need a little tweaking in the future.

This homeowner's sidewalk was dangerous and hard to navigate. When dealing with settling of this nature, the typical response is to either rip up the concrete and replace or to use mud jacking to raise the slab. Ripping up the concrete and be costly and can still have settling down the road. As well it takes time for the concrete to cure and the pathway wouldn't be passable for some time. This is a huge inconvenience for the homeowner. Mud jacking is an old approach to leveling concrete that that is not always reliable and causing a huge mess and clean up. This involves drilling a hole into the concrete and pouring more concrete under the slab.
Rather then using these two approaches, the homeowners chose to use PolyLevel. This is an innovative way for DryZone to lift and level the concrete. Using a 2 part compound, we drill a small, dime sized holes in to the concrete, inject the PolyLevel compound and slowly raise the slab to the desired level. This takes a matter of minutes and is ready for traffic within 15 minutes of curing. Josh Richmond our PolyLevel foreman was able to successfully raise the slabs and create a safe walking area for the homeowners.
PolyLevel injection has so many uses. Similar would be the application used to raise 300 feet of busy Route 1 highway near Middletown and Dover.
When the homeowner of this porch in Ocean View bought their home they noticed the home had a very dangerous tripping hazard. The concrete slab making the front porch of the home dropped just over 1 inch. When the current homeowner talked with the pervious homeowner he said that the slab sank just about a year after it was constructed. In the three years since the current homeowner has had the property, he didn’t notice it sinking it anymore. However, he was still worried about it being a tripping hazard. DryZone’s recommendation is to inject PolyLevel foam under the slab to lift and raise. This will create a long term solution the homeowners problem without ripping up the slab and relaying the concrete. The results are amazing, and now no more worrying about guest tripping over the lip in the porch.
This homeowner stopped in to our Big Red Barn to thank us for the work that we did on his basement. "I just can't believe that it could be that amazing and clean down there.

Carey Milton - Milton DE
This homeowner was looking for a solution to their damp, dark basement. We suggested BrightWall because of the many benefits. Typically in homes we see basements that are painted. The thought is that this would keep the water from enter the space. But all it does is make the paint chip. Adding BrightWall to your basement will guarantee that it won’t come off like paints and sealants. It also directs the water into your WaterGuard or DryTrack System. This creates a clean, dry, space for your basement. Not to mention that the white color of the 3x8 plastic paneling will help to brighten the space, creating an inviting environment. The perfect solution for this homeowner.
The homeowners of this basement in Dagsboro expereinced water in their basement each time it rained. The had to wait until their small sump pump was able to pump out the nearly 3-4 inches of water. Leaving them with a musty basement smell and a huge headache.
Enough was enough, and they made the call to DryZone. After the inspection we suggested long term fixes to address and control the water. First, we needed to install WaterGuard. This will allow the water that is entering the basement to find its way to the sump pump without entering in to the basement and onto the floor.
The next step was to install a new SuperSump. A SuperSump includes a powerful Zoeller ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of the basement.
These solutions will allow for the basement to be dry, all of the time!
This church in Lewes had a number of slabs that had fallen all around the church parking lot. It was an issue that the church had been dealing with for a while. Over time the church board was getting worried about patrons tripping. This was even more worrisome because the average age of the church member was over 60. This could be come a very big issue if some one had tripped and fallen due to the slabs sinking.
It was time to do something about it! The church board contacted DryZone because of their expertise dealing with concrete lifting and leveling.

Millie T. noticed that her sidewalk was sinking. The sinking sidewalk caused a crack which resulted in a tripping hazzard and an undesired appearance in her sidewalk. She received a card and brochure about DryZone from her son in law and contacted Team DryZone to see what could be done.

Shortly after, Josh of Team DryZone and his crew came and took care of the problem right away. "The whole operation is amazing" was the observation of Millie T., the homeowner.
This crawl space was in rough shape. Standing water caused a humidity issue that was impacting the home in several ways. The most obvious effect of the water and high humidity was the drooping and degraded insulation which had to be removed. Even more disturbing was the growth of mold along the floor joists. This humidity and mold growth can contribute to illness in the people who live in the home.
The project took several days to complete as there were many steps involved: removal of insulation, Mold-X application and the installation of Clean Space and humidifier. Team DryZone came and removed the damaged insulation and floor debris. We also applied Mold-X to the floor joists which removed the stains from the previous mold growth and also helped prevent future mold growth. Clean Space with Drainage Matting and Clean Space Pier Wrap helped prevent underground water seepage. The final touch was a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier which will control humidity going forward. The project took several days to complete as there were many steps involved: removal of insulation, Mold-X application and the installation of Clean Space and humidifier. The result is a beautiful and safe crawl space and happy homeowners!
This wet crawlspace was in bad shape. The existing sump pump could not keep up with the water coming up through the ground. Team DryZone arrived on the scene and installed the efficient TripleSafe pump which has two different pumps working in concert with a third pump which has a battery back up. This sump pump is primed to take on all that nature throws at it. The next phase of the installation was the HyrdoLink Drainage System and CleanSpace liner. The final touch was the installlation of the SaniDry CX dehumidifier. These items willhelp protect this home for years to come from the water and humidity encroachment.
Originally, these homeowners wanted to enter a contest that DryZone was having giving away a free crawl space encapsulation. once the homeowners took a look at their crawl space and assessed the situation, they knew that they did not want to wait for the contest to conclude. They went ahead with the encapsulation and we are glad that they did. They had standing water and a dryer being vented into their crawl space. This led to humidity levels which were at 75%. Team DryZone came in and installed a SaniDry dehumidifier, CleanSpace liner and even installed a new dryer vent for these happy homeowners!
This home had a the type of crawl space "protection" that we see quite often. Thin plastic haphazardly placed throughout most of the space had begun to wear and was not protecting the home from ground water encroachment or the allergens that can often come into a home from the soil. These homeowners needed their home to be a safe and healthy environment for the years to come. This is when Team DryZone came to the rescue. We were able to impeccably install 20 mil Clean Space liner over the top of the drainage matting. This combination of materials will protect this home from the allergens within the soil. To further protect this home from humid conditions which can encourage microbial growth, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was installed. This homeowner can rest assured that their home is protected and healthy from the ground up with the help of Team DryZone.
These homeowners knew that their crawl space was bad. The odors and standing water were a clear message to them that they had a problem on their hands, they just didn't know what to do about it. One day, a conversation with their neighbor helped them see clearly what they should do. Their neighbor had been struggling with similar issues but called DryZone. The difference that DryZone had made in the neighbor's crawl space was exactly what these homeowners were looking for.
A call to DryZone was all it took to get a free crawl space inspection. This inspection revealed the full truth about the impact that this crawl space was having on their home.
The inspector from DryZone encountered VERY high humidity levels, both in the air and in the wood of the home. The exterior humidity on that day was 74% while the crawl space humidity was nearly 81%. But that isn't the worst of the story. Continuous high humidity in the air was impacting the wood joist which help up the home. The wood humidity read a shocking 29.1%! This is double what it should be! Thankfully, DryZone had the right solution at just the right time.
The HydroLink Drainage system in tandem with the TripleSafe Sump Pump will control that standing water for the homeowners for years to come - even during storms! The TripleSafe provides efficient water removal during normal water incursion, while the additional pump kicks in during heavy rainfall events. CleanSpace with Drainage Matting, along with blocking the vents and of course, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier will keep the air, and the wood, nice and dry.
These homeowners are enjoying a much improved living environment. High humidity can damage homes and health and we are glad that they had a good neighbor to show them the best solution was a call to DryZone.

This homeowner was thrilled to not have to hire a seperate electrician to run the necessary GFI outlet to power the dehumidifer. Our Master Electrician was quick to the scene along with out dehumifier installation team. This homeowner can rest easy knowing that their crawl space is well taken care of by the total package treatment that DryZone can offer.
