Robin B. of Meridian, Idaho noticed that her home floors were uncomfortably cold. Upon further inspection it was determined that Robin’s vented dirt crawl space was not insulated properly, and had excess moisture that we causing her to be uncomfortable.
Robin found Foundation SupportWorks of Idaho and made the call. An appointment was set for her to meet with one our System Design Specialists to inspect the crawl space and determine what could be done to make her home more comfortable and efficient, as well as address the excess moisture in the crawl space.
Our expert recommended that she install a CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System with SilverGlo insulation panels and a SaniDry dehumidifier.
SilverGlo is an insulation panel that is used to insulate the crawl space walls and help keep the cold, or hot, air out of the crawl space. The Clean Space Liner is used to completely seal the crawl space from the outside, creating a clean, dry area that is resistant to moisture penetration and greatly increases the efficiency of a home’s HVAC system. The SaniDry dehumidifier helps keep the crawl space dry by filtering out moisture in the air, and also helps clean the air inside of the home.
Since having her CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation system installed, Robin has noticed that her home is more comfortable and that her HVAC system has to work less to maintain a comfortable temperature. She no longer has those icy cold floors!
Amy A. from Middleton fell in love with a home built in the late 60s, it was everything she ever wanted. She started to do some remodeling to the exterior of the home and noticed stair-step cracking in the brick. She could tell that the previous owner had attempted to fill the cracks but she knew that filling the cracks or covering the cracks up would only be a band-aid fix. She stated to pay more attention to the out side of her dream home and noticed a gap between the chimney and the side of her home. Worried that there could be an issue with the foundation she reached out to us for help.
Shortly after calling Foundation Supportworks she met with Mike T. one of the teams most quailied foundation specialist. Mike was able to confirm Amys worries of a foundation issue. He let her know that the chimney was not built on the same foundation as the home and that made it even more at risk of having foundation issues. Mike was able to walk around the home and noticed some of the doors and windows sticking. Amy, like most homeowners had notice the doors sticking but she thought it was just because the home was old. Mike gave her an onsite estimation to have her issue not only repaired but to prevent it from ever coming back.
Once the job was finished we followed up with Amy and found that she was very happy with the work done on her home. She said that she felt a lot safer and could enjoy her dream home even more now!

Last week we received a call from Chuck. Chuck was very upset when we first spoke. He told us about how he was trying to sell his house and was not having any luck. Chuck said “I don’t understand, it’s a 10 year old house in Eagle, it shouldn't be this hard to sell.” so we started to ask questions. It turns out that every time a prospective buyer would send an inspector to examine the house, the crawlspace wouldn’t pass. That’s why Chuck called us!
Chuck's home had standing water along the perimeter of the crawlspace and the black vapor barrier had been ripped down. Thankfully during that first call we were able to set an appointment with our System Design Specialist to visit Chuck and take a look at the affected area.
Our expert quickly put together a plan to remove all of the water from the crawl space and prevent this issue from ever coming back. First, suggested instalingl a SuperSump sump pump to remove the water from the crawl space and back out to the yard. However, because the water was standing along the perimeter of the crawl space we also needed to add a SmartPipe system to move that standing water the direction of the sump.
Now that the water was being removed from the space and diverted into the lawn we could move on to step two: Isolate the house from the earth. This is when we used our CleanSpace product! Most vapor barriers are 6 mil polyethylene that can easily rip and get holes poked in it when you crawl on it. That’s not the case with CleanSpace! CleanSpace is a 20 mil thick plastic liner, similar to pool liner, that can be fitted in your crawl space to completely seal off your home from the earth and moiture in the ground.
By the time we had finished with Chuck's crawl space, he was able to not only quickly sell the house, but he was able to get more than the original asking price! Chuck called us with the great news and to thank our system design specialist and the team for helping him out of this wet situation.
Rose from Caldwell has lived in her home for over 25 years and the first time she found water in her crawl space she called a company to add a vapor barrier. They told her the 6mil thick liner was the same liner everyone else installed in their homes and that was true. It was only 2 years later that while in her garden Rose notice an odd odor coming from the crawlspace; she took her flashlight and peered into the space. Rose was mortified!
The black vapor barrier was pull away from the perimeter of the crawlspace exposing the damp dirt and in one corner she could see a large puddle or water. In the large puddle she found mold growing on the wood post that held up her home and she could see the wood had started to rot away.
Rose was not only disgusted by the odor she was living above but she was also scared that the wooden post would snap! She knew that if the post snaped it would cause a ton of damage leaving her home unsafe.
Rose started to look for help; she didn’t want the normal 6 mil thick liner because she has seen how useless it was. She was looking for a real fix to her issue.
She came across our website and found our CleanSpace liner. CleanSpace which is 20 mil think and would seal her home off from the ground water. She also found our SmartJacks which are used to replace beams. She instantly called us and set an appointment for later that week.
For homes in farm areas such as Kuna, Caldwell, Emmett, Middleton, Nampa, Parma and Marsing ground water can be a huge issue. If you find water in your crawlspace or basement please give us a call! We give free estimates! And don’t forget your home will always be your biggest investment, keep it save and enjoyable for your family.
David from Boise spent all spring building his dream deck. David's brother in-law told him to dig a 3ft deep hole and fill it with concrete as the footing to support the structure above. Because his brother in-law is a contractor, David took his advice. By the end of spring David had his dream patio finish just in time for the summer.
Summer storms left 6 inches of water in David's back yard turning it in to a swamp. When the water was gone David walked around inspecting the damage. As he stood back away from the patio, he noticed it was lower on one end. He could see that the water had moved the soil down lower and now his newly built deck was less than perfect. He knew he could fix this issue but that it could turn into a reoccurring issue over the years and David was just ready to enjoy his deck.
David jumped on the web and searched in Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Mountain Home, Twin Falls, Nampa, Caldwell, Kuna, Garden City, Ontario and Pocatello. He was looking for a long-term stabilization product for his deck. He knew that with a long-term stabilization product he wouldn’t have to worry about this issue for a very long time.
That’s when David gave us a call!
We sent one of our foundation specialists out to look at the deck. Our EZ Post Helical Support System was exactly the product David was looking for! In addition to offering the utmost strength and stability, EZ Post offers many other benefits over traditional concrete footing. Installation can be completed year round. EZ Posts are also installed deeper than traditional concrete footings, making them less susceptible to changing moisture content in the soil. But what David loved the most was the 5 year warranty.
Now David can sit back and enjoy his deck year after year with no issues.
John in Coeur D Alene has a home up in near Huetter on the Snake River. Every few years he checks out his crawlspace just to make sure it’s in good shape, and every year the thin black 6 mil liner is hanging down in areas and serving no purpose.

Priscilla G. lives near the river. She noticed a crack in the foundation which is leading to the settlement of the foundation, it’s also allowing water to seep into the crawl space. She is looking for a permanent solution. The home was built in 1998. She first noticed the crack 5 years ago and noticed over time that the crack is getting bigger. With the settlement of the foundation in one corner of her home she also grew concerned with the drywall falling off the walls.
The major cause of the foundation settling, and cracking could be the clay soil which shrinks during dry seasons. Our solution was to install Push Piers which lifts and stabilizes the foundation by reaching the depths of competent load-bearing strata. The weight of the home is then carefully transferred from the original unstable soils, through the piers, to the competent soil or bedrock. This ensures no further settlement will occur and provides the best opportunity to lift her home back to its level position. This is all achieved with minimal disruption to the home or landscaping.
Now Priscilla can rest assure that her foundation is stable while keeping her home whole.

The Waterguard was installed to collect water and drain it to the Sump Pump
Sump Pump was installed to pump all the water out of the basement, as well to pump any further water from coming in.
The Basement To Beautiful Panels are engineered foam panels with integral studs, that are fastened directly to the foundation walls. The panel features a unique, advanced SilverGlo foam insulation with graphite infused throughout the foam. The graphite drives the insulation Value (or “R” value) of the foam up by approximately 24% over conventional Expanded Polystyrene foam by lowering its thermal conductivity.

While cleaning his garage, he found a crawl space issue, especially around the pipes leading from the hot water; there is a huge piece of wallboard missing which appears to have happened during either hot water or furnace repair so the craw space is open in the garage. He wanted to have his crawl space inspected for further issues and hopefully repaired as needed.
So we installed smartpipe and smartsump to keep the water out of the crawlspace and to redirect the water to the lawn.

Leaking basements are a thing in the past! We have a solution that will keep your basement dry for good! Let talk about WaterGuard®
The WaterGuard® basement waterproofing system from Basement Systems is an innovative interior basement drainage system designed to effectively solve your basement water problems. When combined with our sump pumps and other waterproofing products, WaterGuard will keep your basement clean and dry year-round.

Basement Systems recommends installing WaterGuard along with our TripleSafe™ sump pump system for optimum protection.
Our complete basement waterproofing system offers everything you need to keep water out of your basement.
Homeowners prefer WaterGuard's discreet design. The drainage channel is hidden beneath a layer of concrete. Only the top edge of the wall flange is visible, so you'll hardly know it's there. Plus, WaterGuard comes with a 20-year warranty against clogs.

The Sedona is small in size, yet powerful enough to lower humidity in even the dampest environment, such as the basement or crawl space.
Is your crawlspace flooding?
We have a few products that would be great to install in your crawlspace to help prevent water from coming in and flooding it.
Crawl Space Sump Pump System:
The SmartSump™ crawl space drainage system is specially designed for crawl spaces. It has a lower profile than other pump packages, making installation in tight quarters easier.
At its heart, however, is the same high-quality 1/3hp Zoeller pump used in many of Basement Systems other pump packages.
This customer had an ongoing problem with his foundation that he could not fix on his own. His basement walls were failing and leaning inward. Finally, they called us to see if there was anything that we could do before they tried lifting their house and starting with a new foundation.
We sent our specialist out right away to find a solution. Once there, our specialist discovered that these customers had had a problem with water getting into their basement. This means that the ground outside the foundation walls was very saturated and not only causing his basement walls to fail but also allowed water into their home. The amount of weight and force against basement walls when the soils around the home are wet is enough to cause severe damage.
Our solution for our customer was to install our PowerBrace wall support system along with a full perimeter drainage system around his basement and CleanSpace down the walls to catch any water or moisture that could come in and guide it to the drainage system. These systems will ensure that not only will their basement stay permanently dry all of the time, that their walls are stabilized. The PowerBrace system can stop a wall, if caught in time, from moving forward anymore, and over time it can actually push the wall back to its original place by tightening the bracket installed at the top of each PowerBrace.
Tony is interested in encapsulation, he is not impressed with the vapor barrier that was installed & has learned about encapsulation online. There were past humidity issues in the crawlspace causing the insulation to fall down. Our solution was cleanspace vapor barrier encapsulation with a sedona dehumidifier. As you can see there is also water coming down the footing and we are able to stop that concern with a smartpipe perimeter system and sump.
This homeowner called in with concerns about moisture and mold in the crawlspace. The builders had checked for plumbing/pipe leaks and there were none; they suspect a high water table. There was no standing water, just moist, mushy ground throughout the crawlspace which can lead to mold and musty smells.
Our solution was to waterproof the crawlspace with our perimeter Smartpipe drainage system and Smartsump. We also recommended our Sedona Sanidry to dehumidify and keep mold growth at bay. To finish off the system we would do our cleanspace vapor barrier as an added benefit of controlling the moisture.
This homeowner has a house that had a basement dug out in it and was getting foundation leaks around some of the baseboards and on some of the drywall in the basement. The paint was bubbling and discolored which are signs of a wet basement, and you can see the dirt wall wet and crumbling.
Our solution was to install our Waterguard basement waterproofing system and simple sump!
Water comes in many forms, all which are harmful to your crawlspace! Standing water, water vapor, mildew, leaks coming in through cracks, you name it.. it all does damage.
In this crawlspace we're seeing basically all of the above. Water marks down the walls show either water leaking or high humidity levels forming water droplets to drip down and form water spots on the ground. The solution? Simple! A full perimeter drainage system, pump, and dehumidifier!!
A full perimeter drainage system will drain the water out of the crawlspace through the pump and back out where it belongs, outside! The dehumidifier will bring the humidity levels down which will help with moisture concerns as well as reduce chances of mold, insulation damage, allergen irritants, and the whole system combined will help reduce heating/cooling costs!!
Encapsulating your crawlspace correctly can make a HUGE difference in not only the appearance but you'll also notice changes in things like:
- Pest control
- Vapor control
- Heating/Cooling cost reduction
- Allergen reduction
and much more!!!
Seperating your home from the earth properly is very important and includes sealing the barrier around fixtures and beams, not just laying down a tarp. Our specialists know best and ensure they use not only the best products but the proper technique to make sure your crawlspace is air tight!

This family has water leaking into their basement from outside the home. You could see where the walls and baseboards in the basement were warping from all of the water. You can only imagine how bad this really could have looked if we did not come out any sooner. We were able to complete their install in one day so that they do not need to worry about anymore water damage to their home. We installed our water guard product to keep the moisture and humidity out of the area of the home and we also installed our sump pump to direct any water entering the basement to the outside of the home. If you or a family member are experiencing any of the same concerns, give us a call so that we can make it right!
This customer had water leaking into his crawlspace so bad that at one point there were 8 inches of standing water! We sent out our Specialist as soon as possible so that we could help diagnose the situation the best that we could. We ended up installing our crawlspace waterproofing product, clean space, once all of the water was removed. This is used to help keep the water from making any damage if any gets in, and it also helps keep the moisture and pests clear of the area.
We also installed a smart pipe and our sump pump to help keep any water out of the crawlspace. If any were to get in, the pump helps redirect the water through the smart pipe out of the crawlspace.
If this is you or if you know of anyone experiencing anything like this, give us a call and let us help!
