The front porch of this home was not only sinking in and becoming an eyesore, it was actually sinking in to the foundation's piers causing them to crack. The porch was lifted back to level in approximately 7 minutes. It not only took care of the eyesore, but relieved the stress being put on the home's foundation. A video of this project can be found on our YouTube channel. You can watch the porch come back to level as you watch.
Despite not having standing water, the moisture was high enough in this crawl space to cause the hardwood flooring on the first level of the home above the crawl space to ripple, buckle, and even pop out of place in some areas. A full encapsulation system was installed which included a sump pump and dehumidifer.
This front stoop had sunk down inches, causing an extreme trip hazard for this family!! Take a look at these INCREDIBLE before and after pictures to see the MIRACLES our Polylevel crews can work for you!

Germantown home with interior signs of humidity issues in the crawl space
This homeowner wasn’t concerned with the condition of the crawl space until the water and humidity issues began to affect the beautiful wood flooring in the downstairs on the home. They started to notice rippling in some places of the flooring. In others, the boards were expanding and contracting with the changes in dampness below them. One picture shows where boards started to come up altogether.
Our inspector found that the crawl space needed to be fully encapsulated. The system included drainage matting, Cleanspace liner, a Sani Dry sump pump, and a dehumidifier. Click here to learn more about how all of these parts of the encapsulation system work together, and why they are all necessary.
In the end, the homeowner was pleased that any water that would enter the crawl space would be diverted to the sump before it can cause problems, and the dehumidifier would keep the air conditioned in an appropriate manner. They were further pleased that as the system began working, and the flooring began to dry out from the underside, some of the aesthetic issues with the hardwood floors went away.
