This is a home in North Charleston that had an old vapor barrier that over time came up and now they were noticing dust and musty smells in their home. Much of the air that you breathe in your home comes from your crawl space. They had us come out and replace their vapor barrier and also some of the wood damage that was found as a result of the inspection.

Audrey R. is a homeowner in Charleston, SC who has had some issues with her walls cracking. The main issue is the wall between the kitchen and the dinning room. She is worried that her home might be settling since that is a big issue around where she lives. After hearing about Cantey Foundation Specialists from a friend she decides to give us a call. Specialist Kendall Moore went to Audrey's home for a free inspection and found that her suspicions are correct, the home is settling. Kendall explains that Cantey's patented Smart Jack technology is the solution she needs. Smart Jacks act as the support that your home needs and that your stone piers may not provide anymore. Smart Jacks are built on a 2x2x2 hole filled with stone in order to displaces that weight caused by the home and decrease settling. Team Leader Dallas D. and Team Member Dallas E. quickly came to Aubrey's rescue and installed her Smart Jacks. This ensured Aubrey that her home's wall would be stable and prevent further cracking. Aubrey said she was pleased with the work done and was happy that Cantey did the job right.

Crawl space encapsulation and repair

Humid crawl spaces are breeding grounds for mold and rot, causing structural and air quality problems for the rest of your home. What's even worse is that traditional methods of keeping crawl spaces dry, such as venting, have been proven time and time again to create more problems than they solve.

Cantey Foundation Specialists offers complete crawl space repair and encapsulation services using the CleanSpace system. By installing a crawl space vapor barrier and additional products like thermal insulation, dehumidifiers, or drainage matting if need be, you can create a fully enclosed, arid crawl space that won't allow for any moisture to enter.

If your crawl space has rotted or sagging support joists, we can also assist by installing our galvanized steel crawl space support jacks. Your crawl space bears the weight of the floors above, so having stable supports is crucial!

Charleston, SC Basement Waterproofing

Does your basement leak or flood every time it rains? Do you have mold, musty smells, chalky looking deposits on basement walls, or does your basement feel really humid in general? Even though they might not seem that serious, all of these are signs that you may have a basement water problem.

A wet, moldy basement will spur allergy issues, lower home value, and make your basement an unusable space. But with a basement waterproofing system from Cantey Foundation Specialists, you can transform a damp basement into a dry, attractive space. Our basement waterproofing solutions, developed by Basement Systems, include many products and techniques:

  • Drainage systems
  • Sump pump installation & replacement
  • Basement dehumidifiers
  • Wall coverings
  • Basement flooring
  • Basement windows
  • Water heater flood protection

No matter how big or small or a water problem your basement may have, it's always prudent to act sooner rather than later - before mold grows and damages to your personal property add up. Cantey Foundation Specialists's proven basement waterproofing services can help you get your basement back to normal.

Brian P. is a business man in Charleston, SC that enjoys taking older, run down homes and turning them into beautifully renovated houses. He often finds homes that need a complete overhaul which was the case for this project. Close to downtown Charleston sat a house that no one had touched in years. This home did not even have flooring to get started on renovations. Brian wanted to find the best company to help him get started on making this home beautiful once again. Someone else in Brian's line of business recommended that he call Cantey Foundation Specialists because of their woodworking skill. Brian called into Cantey and was set up with an appointment. System Design Specialist Craig Adams came out to the site and did an inspection of the entire home. Craig told Brian that Cantey could definitely do the woodworking it would take to start on this home.

Concrete slab foundation has a ~3/8" crack running diagonally about 4' from the corner of the slab - basically cutting off the corner of the slab. This problem is obvious because I pulled up the floor in this room, but I'm not sure if there are also other foundation problems elsewhere.

Vicinity of Colonial St in Charleston
Two things: 1. Purchasing a slate billiard table and want to make sure we have proper support under the room where it's going (first floor dining room in our 1906-built house - on a crawl space that's about 3.5' tall and surprisingly navigable) 2. Some signs of settling on the front left corner of the house. Would like an evaluation to see if any corrective measures need to be taken.
Vicinity of Alexander in Charleston
Home inspection for sale of property. We are looking to make the house structurally sound. I can forward the inspection.
Vicinity of Julian Clark Road in Charleston
During an inspection for a house we are buying, it was noted there is a moisture issue within the crawlspace area (i.e. moisture on floor joists and subfloor). A vapor barrier was not recommended due to the ground being very dry. The inspector recommended sealing off the crawlspace vents and installing a crawlspace dehumidifier. The crawlspace area is approximately 1,100 sq.ft.
