Steve L. of Melrose, Wisconsin is continually looking to preserve the history of this 160-year-old mansion built by early settler and lumber baron William H. Polleys. After noticing significant heat loss coming from the dirt crawl spaces located below the home, Steve knew it was time to contact a professional to prevent any further energy loss or future water and rodent damage.
After searching the web for the right contractor, Steve found American Waterworks and thought we would make a good fit. Shortly after submitting his request for a free estimate online, an appointment was set for Dustin Loftus to evaluate Steve's crawl space onsite.
After a thorough analysis, Dustin decided that it would be best to promote good drainage along the crawl space floor, so he recommended installing our innovative CleanSpace drainage matting system. The raised dimples on our CleanSpace® Drainage Matting gives any water flooding into the crawl space a channel underneath the liner to direct moisture outside of the home.
The next step was to seal and insulate the crawl space by combining our puncture-resistant, padded insulation product called TerraBlock™ and our CleanSpace® Vapor Barrier. This seamless combination, along with a spray foam insulation application to the crawl space walls and floor joist pockets, American Waterworks was able to protect Steve's home, keeping his energy bills low and prevent any further problems caused by water or rodent intrusion.
As you can see from the review, Steve is very pleased with the solution and has noticed a drastic change in the efficiency of the Libke Mansion since American Waterworks was able to make his home whole again.
