This customer was looking for better access to their crawlspace. We designed and built a crawlspace door that was lighter than her previous door, and looked better under her stairs.
This crawlspace in N. Vancouver was difficult to repair due to the house being built on a mountain, and the shorter areas. Some as small as 12 inches.
This home built in 1971 was experiencing water in the crawlspace, this resulted in higher than normal humidity, which in turn caused musty odours throughout the home. The solution was our CleanSpace Encapsulation, with an UltraSmart Sump Pump.

Robert K. was looking at selling his home. He had suffered from moisture problems in his basement for years. He knew he had to address these issues before selling his home. Robert contacted us at Basement Systems Vancouver to come take a look.
Lars Bressel met Robert at his home for the inspection. Robert was not interested in digging up the outside of his house to replace his drain tile. Instead, he was interested in the WaterGuard Drainage system installed by Basement Systems. Lars did find signs of moisture throughout the basement. This was due to the original Big O drain tile being compromised. Lars designed a French Drain system to ensure that the basement stays dry all of the time.
After consultation with his realtor and home inspector, Robert chose Basement Systems Vancouver to complete the work. He has since sold his house, and the new owners have the confidence of a 25 year warranty against water in their basement.
Fred R. lives in a 35 year old house in Surrey, BC. For years he had been noticing signs of moisture ingress into his crawlspace. He had noticed damp musty odours during the summer months, and also on his belongings he stored in his crawlspace. That all changed once he contacted Basement Systems Vancouver.
Frank Beck met Fred at his home, and inspected the crawlspace. Right away frank could see signs of past moisture ingress, and his humidity readings reached over 60%. The solution for this crawlspace was the Crawlspace Encapsulation System to seal off the crawlspace from the moist environment, and also a Sanidry Air system to ensure there is always healthy dry air in the home. Now Fred can enjoy the extra storage space, and fresh healthy air in his home.
Kimberley had just purchased a new home in North Vancouver. The building inspection showed some dampness in the crawl space, but good integrity/quality of foundation etc. There was alo a musty smell coming up into the house which she was looking to have addressed.
Upon the inspection by Frank Beck, he found an uneven crawlspace that was built into the mountain. Some areas were as short as 12 inches. The system Frank designed to address the homeowners concerns, and the home inspectors findings included CleanSpace, CleanSpace Drainage Matting, and removal of all debris. The installation was particularly challenging as the house was built on rock face, and the crawlspace was quite low in areas. But now the homeowner has a healthy crawlspace and no longer has musty odours throughout her house.
Vivian H called Basement Systems Vancouver as she was experiencing water in her basement during heavy rainfall. We set an appointment for Frank Beck to go and meet with her to inspect her basement in her home.
Upon inspecting her home, Frank found standing water, heavy signs of efflouresence, and water ingress where the floor and wall meet. Vivian wanted the work addressed from the inside of the home as digging up the outside would be too costly due to her walkway and gardens. A french drain system was designed using our patented Waterguard System. The installation took two days, and no outisde digging was required.
Now when the heavy rains begin, this homeowner can rest easy in her dry and healthy basement.
Mike called us to have a look at his crawlspace in his 100 year old house in Vancouver. It was a dirt crawlspace, with low vents and lots of obstacles suchs as large rocks, and floor joist supports. Upon inspection of the property, Frank Beck noticed higher than acceptable levels of humidity, and also the damp earthy smell that comes from dirt crawlspace.
Frank designed a system to reduce humity, seal the crawlspace and create dry storage area for the home owner. Basement Systems Vancouver installed our CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation Line, As well as a SaniDry Mini Air System. Now Mike can enjoy a dry, fresh and healthy home, with tonnes of extra storage space.
Mr and Mrs B. in Abbotsford live in a 1980's rancher. For years they had been dealing with moisture ingress into their half underground basement. They met Basement Systems Vancouver at the Abbotsford home show, and learned more on how they can fix the problem.
After the show, Frank Beck visited their home and inspected the moisture issues. After inspection, Frank noted two vertical cracks in the foundation that were leaking into the basement. His recommendation was our polyurethane crack injection with FlexiSpan. This procedure took less than a day and required no outside digging. Mr and Mrs. B were elated with the service they received from Basement Systems Vancouver and are now enjoying a dry basement.
Justin contacted Basement Systems Vancouver about 4 main concerns he had with his older crawlspace in Tsawwassen, BC. His concerns were the damp musty odour, heat loss during the winter months, rodents and ground water seepage.
After the inspection of his crawlspace, Frank Beck noted insulation falling, high relative humidity, and signs of moisture ingress. The system designed for Justins' home consisted of the Cleanspace Vapour Barrier to seal off his crawlspace, a SaniDry dehumidifier to clean and dry the air in his home. We also insulated the end caps in his crawl saace to combat heat loss through the winter months.
Now Justin can enjoy his dry and healthy crawlspace in his home, and also benefits from extra dry storage space in his home. As crawlspace repair is our specialty at Basement Systems Vancouver, we were happy to help Justin achieve his goals for his home.
Steve H. had a dirt crawlspace that was damp, and musty smelling. He needed to use the area for storage, but found his personal items were getting damaged. Steve called Basement Systems Vancouver looking for a permanently dry and healthy crawlspace.
The main component of Steve's crawlspace repair was the Cleanspace crawlspace vapour barrier. This 20 mil thick liner isolates the home from the dirty below, thus drying out his crawlspace, and is tough enough to store items on top of without worrying about tearing the liner. We also installed drainage matting below the liner to increase crawl space drainage, and also to make crawling around softer on his knees.
Now Steve has a dry, healthy crawlspace that adds a lot of storage space to his home. Basement Systems Vancouver was happy that they could solve this White Rock, BC crawlspace issue once and for all.
