New Jersey Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Waterproofing Services in Kearny

Whatever happens in your crawl space doesn't always stay down there. The air in your crawl space is always getting swept up into your living spaces thanks to the Stack Effect (or chimney effect). Whether it's mold spores, outside humidity, or even pest-related odors, it's all getting into your home and harming your air quality. 

Blue Umbrella offers expert crawl space encapsulation and waterproofing services for the people of Kearny. Our crawl space solutions may include these components:

  • 4" white, rigid PVC drainage channels
  • Blue Angel Sump Pumps, we offer both Professional and Premium Series
  • AprilAire E070 70-Pint Dehumidifier
  • Richtech Industries’ 14-mil Flexi-Seal vapor barrier
  • ShipShape Sump Pump Monitoring System

Is Crawl Space Mold Dangerous?

Mold spores are virtually everywhere you may go. You've probably heard of some of the notorious ones like toxic black mold, but fortunately, these kinds of molds are rarely in a concentration that can affect you. 

It's only when there's enough moisture present that those spores will activate, colonize, and spread. Then, it becomes a problem for your Kearny home as the air fills with new spores.

Mold growth in your crawl space will increase the presence of mold spores that enter your living space, which can trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks, and some types of mold can even cause infections in those with weakened immune systems.

The best solution is to keep your crawl space dry with Blue Umbrella's crawl space encapsulation and waterproofing solutions. Low enough moisture levels keep mold at bay. Our AprilAire dehumidifier controls moisture levels in an encapsulated crawl space!

New Jersey Foundation Repair Company

Expert Foundation Repair in Kearny, NJ

Your foundation is one of the most important parts of your home's well-being. That's why having the right products installed by skilled experts is important to ensure proper installation.

Blue Umbrella Waterproofing not only has the expertise, but we also use industry-leading products. One such high-quality product includes the Fortress Stabilization Systems' InvisiBeam ICC-ES-certified carbon fiber straps, the only code-approved solution for basement wall reinforcement. Along with our quality carbon fiber straps, we offer steel I-beams as another foundation repair solution.

With Blue Umbrella on your side, you can rest easy knowing that we'll return strength and stability to your basement walls.

We specialize in fixing foundation problems, including:

  • Foundation cracks
  • Bowing Basement Walls
  • Leaning Basement Walls
  • Shearing Basement Walls

Carbon Kevlar Fiber Straps

For basement walls with a deflection of less than 2 inches, our carbon fiber straps from Fortress Stabilization Systems are a perfect solution. Along with the Invisibeam carbon fiber straps, the product is further strengthened with a top anchor and a bottom anchor, offering unmatchable support for your basement wall.

Steel I-Beams:

For basement walls experiencing a deflection of over 2 inches but less than 3 inches, steel I-beams are a classic and reliable solution that prevents your basement wall from further movement.

What's the Difference in Blue Umbrella's Carbon Fiber Solution?

Not all carbon fiber products are made equal. In fact, most competitors opt for a cheaper carbon fiber fabric. Our solutions from Fortress Stabilization Systems utilize pre-cured straps of unidirectional carbon fiber combined with Kevlar. These make for more reliable installations and a far more robust solution to other options.

Thanks to the strength and reliability of Fortress Stabilization Systems' InvisiBeam carbon fiber straps, even the Department of Transportation has approved it. These are the same products used to reinforce bridges, garages, and even hotels.

Your Kearny home deserves the best in foundation repair. You can always depend on Blue Umbrella Waterproofing to deliver!

We used Blue Umbrella to put in French drains and a sump pump and had a fantastic experience. Tony did a great job explaining their methodology during the sales process and it was a no brained to move forward with them. They completed the work quickly and with the highest quality.
