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!

Florence County, 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 pumps
  • 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.

Job Stories From Florence County, SC
Sagging Floors Stabilized through SmartJack System in Florence, SC

Customer Terry T. called Cantey Foundation Specialists because he was concerned about the sagging floors in his home.  During Terry's free estimation, System Design Specialist James Davis explained that his sagging floors were caused by the weakened columns and settling soil underneath his home.  Specialist James recommended installation of the patented SmartJack System, which would lift and stabilize the floor and home.  He also recommended a vapor barrier to prevent dirt or moisture to directly impair the remaining wood joists in the crawlspace.

Production Crew Foreman Sixto Lopez and crew members Ethen and Mariano arrived on the scene, ready to work rain or shine.  Though it was raining, Sixto and his team installed over 10 SmartJacks and its many supplemental beams.  They also layed down a vapor barrier in the clean and newly renovated crawl space.  

Customer Terry T. is now worry free about his sagging floors; they are now fully supported and will no longer settle!  Cantey Foundation Specialists are pleased that they could help solve Terry's sagging floor problem once and for all!

Cantey Treats Mold in Effingham, SC

Linda B. is a homeowner in Effingham, SC who has a mold problem. Linda's issue started a few years ago when she went underneath her home to check her crawl space, and she saw that some mold was starting to grow. She decided to use some anti-mold formula that you can buy at the hardware store and hope that it would get rid of her problem. A few years later, she decided to check on it again and saw that the mold had not only stayed but also spread to dangerous levels. The amount of mold she was experiencing was causing so much damage to her house and floors that she needed to renovate.  However, before she could do that, she needed to get rid of the mold so she called Cantey Foundation Specialists. Specialist Ward Purvis explained to Linda that Cantey could do the job. We used our Mold-X treatment to kill and prevent mold from coming back to Linda's home so she could get her renovations done and feel good knowing that Cantey had her back.

Woodwork in Effingham, SC

Phillp M. is a homeowner in Effingham, SC who enjoys to work around his home. He has a garden that he tends to every week and enjoys the taste of the fruits and vegetables that he grows with his own two hands. "They taste better than store bought produce because my hard work and dedication went into growing them", he said. Even though Phillip is an outdoors kind of guy there are still things that he can't do by himself. Phillp noticed that a section under near his crawl space entrance looked to be in disrepair. This bothered him because he didn't know much about woodwork or what he could do to fix it. After seeing an advertisement on the television Phillp decided to call Cantey Foundation Specialists to help. Specialist Katherine Dillon went out to Phillp's home and explained to him that because of the moisture under his crawl space the wood was rotting and the insulation was falling down. She then explained that Cantey could replace the wood with our treated lumber and take down the insulation. Team Leader Israel, Team Member Jonathan, and Team Member Austin came to Phillp's home and replaced the rotten wood and took down his insulation. Phillp was excited to see his problem go and said, "If I could have done it myself I would've, but Cantey really came through for me".

Maintaining Property Value in Timmonsville, SC

The Cantey Crew recently helped K. Gray by maintaining her property value. Karen and her husband bought a house in Sumter with the intention to fix it up. A competitor had done some work for them about 3 years ago. They told us that they were not happy with the work, and there have been different employees out every time to address the problem. The Gray's were advised that they needed an encapsulation. They started getting other opinions because Mrs. Gray felt that she was being scammed. They were impressed with how thorough the Cantey inspection process was, and knowledgeable we were. The Gray's felt so good about Cantey that they wanted to replace the work they had previously done and Smart Jack's installed by Cantey. Cantey Foundation Specialists installed push piers, Smart Jacks and some supplemental beam to permanently stabilize the Gray home.
