Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Crawl Space Sealed in Pillager, MN

Monday, February 15th, 2021 by Kal Aldrich


Mold, dust, bugs, mice, and other insects feed off water moisture, especially in crawl spaces of homes. Water moisture can also cause damage to the home's wood framing and eats away at the insulation. In fact, due to the poor quality of air and mold build-up, it can cause a negative impact on people's health and can lead to terrible allergies. 

A cabin owner in Pillager, MN was having water moisture problems in their crawl space and they wanted to get it repaired before it got any worse, and so they could close their cabin down for the fall and winter seasons. They went online and came across our website. They saw that we provide FREE Estimates, so they called our office line and scheduled a free inspection with one of our Design Specialists. An in-person inspection is crucial because then our Design Specialist can narrow down the problems and provide the best possible solution.

Our Design Specialist went out to the owner's cabin, carefully inspected their crawl space, and drew out the solution of our Drainage Matting and our CleanSpace Encapsulation Vapor Barrier. The cabin owner was confident in our solution, the products, and their warranties, so they went ahead with the project and scheduled a date for the installation. 


Once the date was scheduled for the installation, our Foreman and his production team drove to the cabin and started the project by installing our Drainage Matting. The Drainage Matting provides extra durability and larger drain channels to give the water a channel to direct the water to the sump pump system or crawl space drain. Next, our team installed our CleanSpace Encapsulation Vapor Barrier, which is a great way to keep water and moisture from the crawl space. Our CleanSpace is a heavy-duty barrier that gets rid of moisture problems, makes more living space, and reduces the heating and cooling costs during the summer and winter months.

The project took just under two days and the owner was thrilled with the work knowing they no longer had to worry about water moisture problems and the damage it would cause. 

At American Waterworks, we provide more than just crawl space encapsulation. We also waterproof basements, repair foundations, test and mitigate homes for radon, and repair and left concrete. Call us today to learn more or click HERE to request a free estimate!
