Walls Braced & Encapsulated in Baker, MT

Monday, September 22nd, 2014 by Jim Laven


This homeowner's walls were very moist causing them to weaken over time.  The high humidity levels created from the excess moisture made the home smell damp and musty.


We recommeded installing a BasementGutter system along with CrawlSeal on the wall to encapsulate the moisture and direct it into a SafeDri Triple sump and pump it out of the home.  We also installed Wall Anchors to secure the foundation walls and prevent them from bowing in.  This 2 step process made a dramatic difference to the air quality throughout the entire home as well as stabilizing the homes foundation for many years.

Project Summary

Specialist: Ben Warren

Project Foreman: Kelley Brisson

Products Used: Wall Anchors, CrawlSeal, BasementGutter, SafeDri Triple Sump
