An investigation of a property in Encinitas, California, found that the foundation should be supported by means of underpinning, in the areas of failure. In addition to supporting the foundation, it is also important to raise the foundation to maximum practical recovery, to prevent future failure.
A crew was scheduled to fix the issue, they installed seven push piers, under the foundation footings, to the load bearing stratum. Once the piers were installed and the brackets placed, the crew then lifted the home to maximum practical recovery. Once the lift was completed the rear deck was leveled, by repositioning the support beams.
The customer was very satisfied with the outcome of the project.
In San Diego, California, Saber was contracted to repair a homeowners foundation issues. The homeowner, Laura D., had noticed that the floors were sagging in areas and the walls had cracks, and the doors and windows throughout the home had become harder to open and close. The homeowner, had researched the internet and found Saber, she liked the feedback she saw from other happy consumer's and liked the fact the company was reputable and has been in the area for many years.
Saber sent out a sales representative to inspect the property and give the homeowner a free estimate, on the repairs. The finding determined that the home did in fact have severe settlement issues which caused cracks in the slab and other noticeable problems with the foundation. This type of settlement is usually caused by a shift in the soils supporting the foundation. The recommendation to the homeowner was to use the Push Pier System, by Foundation Supportworks, Inc, as well as in the area of sagging floors and the crawlspace the SmartJack™ system would be installed. The homeowner was impressed with the professionalism of the Saber sales rep and was ready to sign the contract.
The Saber office then scheduled a crew to go to the home and complete the job. The crew began by digging 10 holes, and installing the Push Piers, by Foundation Supportworks, this installation is rather easy and the effects are immediate. push Piers are easily driven into the ground beneath the home until they hit hard solid supporting soils. Brackets were then attached to the foundation footings and driven in at the right angle to transfer the lifting from the pier to the home's foundation. During the installation 2 areas of concrete had to be removed to install piers, and in all 12 piers were installed.
In Addition, to the push pier system, the home also had a crawlspace in which the crew installed 14 SmartJacks™. The SmartJack™ system is used to stabilize and level girders and floor joists. The crew excavated a 2' cube of soil at each SmartJack™ location. The holes were then filled with an engineered fill that consists of tightly-compacted crushed stone. A concrete base was then placed and leveled on top of the fill. Next, steel columns were cut to the appropriate height to fit in the crawlspace. The steel column and its components were assembled and connected to the girder, and the SmartJacks™ were then tightened into place. The above floors and walls were then lifted back into their original position, and the noticeable sagging floor was no longer an issue.
Once the installation of the piers and the SmartJacks™ was complete, the crew then repaired the cracks that had formed due to the settlement. The homeowner now notices that the floor no longer sag, and the doors and windows that were once hard to open and close, now open and close with ease. The homeowner was very happy with the work preformed, by Saber.
In San Diego, California, Saber Foundations was contracted to repair a home with settlement issues. The windows and doors had begun to stick and the slab had cracks in it indicating that the settlement of the foundation, or the soils beneath it rather, was a major concern. This type of settling is usually caused by a shift in the soils supporting the foundation, as the California heat takes its tool on many elements, it also shrinks the clay in the supporting soils. With the Push Pier System, by Foundation Supportworks, Inc, installation is easy and the effects are immediate. Push Piers are easily driven into the ground beneath a home until they hit hard solid supporting soils. Brackets are attached to the foundation footing to drive the piers in at the right angle and to transfer the lifting from the pier to the home’s foundation.
During this installation 2 Push Piers were installed. These piers work together to transfer the weight of the structure to the strong soils or bedrock below. After installation, a void was added under the home, to prevent the structure from future foundation issues. Also, the cracks that had formed int he slab were then repaired, by epoxy injection. The homeowner can now rest easy knowing that the foundation of the home is repaired and the signs of the soils shifting will no longer be an issue.
Theresa M. was concerned about her homes movement that she noticed after that San Diego's 7.0 quake easter 2010. After research online she determined that Saber had the best reviews and would be the best company to evaluate the property. Her home was built in 1952, 850 square feet with garage and basement below.
Upon inspection, Saber’s Project Specialist, Daniel G. proposed to install 19 retro fit brackets to reinforce the foundation.
Saber's certified Crawl Space crew utilized Simpson Strong Tie seismic plates connecting the wood structure of the home to the concrete foundation. The seismic upgrade took one day to complete. Theresa is now content with the fact that the property is once again stable and has been reinforced in the event of another earthquake, which in California is inevitable.
Homeowners in Santee, California, had noticed that the deck around their pool had begun to sink in areas and was causing unsightly trip hazards. After doing some research about the methods to fix the damage caused by the soil settlement below the slab, the homeowners knew that they wanted to use a company that would inject foam under the slab. The other options were thought to be too time consuming and also expensive. The homeowner knew they wanted something that was light weight, with a quick finish time and something that would not break the budget. The homeowners insisted the help of Saber to fix their pool deck. The crew from Saber arrived promptly at the scheduled date and time. The work was competed much to the homeowners satisfaction. There was a hang up at one point during the process, and the Saber team made sure to inform the homeowner of the issues and their options. The issue was that there was an area that had been to tight for the foam injection, if injected more cracks would have been caused, so the fix was to grind down that area, rather then leave it as is or try to add the injection. The homeowner was very pleased with the work preformed and says she would hire the Saber crew again in a heartbeat!
Saber was contracted to fix a home with settlement issues, in San Diego, California. The homeowners had noticed signs of settlement in the interior and exterior of the home. There was also a significant crack in the foundation slab. They knew something needed to be done, before the issue became worse.
With the PolyLEVEL™ system, Saber was able to stabilize the soils beneath the home's foundation as well as lift the slab. Once the PolyLEVEL™ was injected the signs of the soils failure began to disappear, almost immediately. The cracks in the slab began to close and the interior and exterior cracks that had formed also closed. The Saber team then had to do some crack repair on the significant slab crack, by stitching the crack and stapling the rebar. Now the signs of settlement are gone and the homeowners can enjoy their home once again.
Homeowners in Chula Vista, California had noticed several areas in and around their home that were cause for concern.

The crew had to saw cut and removed several areas of concrete to place the piers in the correct locations around the home for maximum practical recovery. Saber installed 10 push piers at the designated pier locations and they also installed 7 helical anchors with retrofit brackets at the specified locations on the design map. The homeowners were kept informed of any issues or changes that needed to be made during the process. Once the piers had been installed and the lift preformed, the crew then backfilled the holes where each pier was located. The homeowners no longer see the effect of the foundation's settlement, the cracks in the walls have been closed and the doors and windows are significantly easier to open and close.
Homeowners in Spring Valley, California, had started to notice a lot of cracking in the interior and exterior of their home. They as noticed huge cracks that had formed in the slab of their patio deck. These are all signs of soil settlement. This type of settlement is due to the expansive soils beneath the homes foundation. The homeowners knew they needed to find a fix for this issue before it became much more serious.

The homeowners did some research and found Saber, they set an appointment for a Saber design specialist to come to the property for a free property evaluation. The design specialist proposed that the home be stabilized and lifted to maximum practical recovery using Push Piers. It was also proposed to use helical anchors for lateral support, and then use PolyLEVEL™ to fill any void that may have been caused due to the lift of the property. The Saber crew was then scheduled to complete the project. The Crew arrived and went to work using the proposed design to map out the pier locations, some locations required concrete to be cut and removed to get to the footing, once the locations had been determined the crew began to excavate the areas in order to place the piers at the proper locations. Ten Push Piers were placed around the property as well as six Helical Anchors. During the process of installing the piers, it was noted that the piers had to go down deeper then originally planned to hit bedrock or stabile soils beneath the foundation, once they hit bed rock the set up process and lift could be conducted. Then the lift and stabilization of the property was preformed. Once the lift had been completed the PolyLEVEL™ was injected beneath the foundation to fill any voids and the home is now stabilized and lifted to maximum practical recovery, The homeowners no longer see the signs of settlement that once plaqued their home.

Homeowners in Lake Forest were noticing sloping and bowing of the floors and walls throughout their home. They knew there was an issue that needed to be addressed. They researched companies on the Internet, to find a company with integrity and knowledge of the issues that they were experiencing in their home. Then found Saber to be the best option and immediately called to set an appointment for their free property evaluation. Based on the investigation performed on the foundation, was recommended that the foundation be supported by means of underpinning in the areas of failure. In addition to supporting the foundation from further failure, the foundation should also be raised to "maximum practical recovery". The method of underpinning recommended is to install Push Piers into the soil to the bedrock beneath the foundation. It was also recommended that a new girder beam be installed and then smart jacks added for more support. The Saber crew excavated the areas around the footing to place the two recommended push piers. They then replaced the girder beam and installed adjustable steel Smart Jacks by digging a 24'X24" foundation pit, filling it with compacted crushed rock creating an engineered fill, then they installed a precast foundation base, attached and adjusted two Smart Jacks for proper elevation and load bearing of the supporting floor. The home no longer shows signs of settlement the sloping and bowing that was once evident is no longer an issue.
Homeowners in Lake Forest, California had noticed signs of settlement throughout their home; they had large cracks forming in the slab of the foundation and cracks forming around doorframes throughout the home.

The homeowners researched many companies in and around the area and found Saber, they scheduled an appointment for and Saber design specialist to come out to their home and evaluate their property. The finding was that the homeowners did have an underling settlement issue. This issue is mostly due to the settlement of soils, this type of settlement is due to the expansive soils beneath the homes foundation. The soils expand and shrink due to the changes in the climate and leave voids, which in turn cause settlement, and that is when the cracking and shifting begins. It was proposed to have three push piers installed to stabilize and lift the property. The Homeowners were really impressed with the Saber design and were ready to fix the homes foundation issues. The Saber crew arrived at the home and went to work, three holes were excavated at the foundations footings and the piers were installed. Once the piers were installed they were set up for the lift to begin, the lift was completed and then PolyLEVEL™ was injected to fill any voids and prevent future settlement.

Homeowners in San Diego, California, were looking for a way to make their dirty musty crawlspace more energy efficient and possibly use it for added storage. They contracted Saber to take their dirty crawl space and make it a CleanSpace. With the CleanSpace encapsulation by Saber, they were able to achieve their goal.
A dirt filled crawl space adds a continuous stream of water vapor into your home, and any underground leakage lays in the crawl space slowly evaporating into the home. This home also has a block wall which in most homes, this is the easiest and cheapest material to build a foundation, however; they are also the least resistant to water and air going through them since there are so many joints in the wall. So like it or not you are breathing dirt crawlspace air. Once the CleanSpace was complete, the vents that were once needed around the home, are no longer needed so the Saber crew added vent covers to the ten existing vented areas around the home. With the CleanSpace encapsulation system, installed by Saber, these homeowners know are breathing clean air and have a nice “clean” crawlspace to use for storage.
A home in La Jolla, CA, had some serious foundation settlement issues, the homeowners knew something needed tone fixed or the value of their property would be lost due to these issues. The homeowners researched and found Saber to be their best option. The Crew from Saber installed piers around the exterior of the home as well as some interior piers to fix the foundation settlement issues. Some areas of concrete needed to be removed to complete the project, as well as cabinets that were located in the garage area. The cabinets needed to be removed so that the concrete they were resting on could be cut out, and the soil beneath could be excavated. Some of the piers located around the home had to go down an extra depth before hitting the bedrock below, the crew needed to use safety ladders to get in and out of the holes that were excavated because of the footings being so deep. The crews worked hard to get the pier installed so that the new concrete could be poured and the concrete could start to set up. The homeowners needed the concrete to dry before they could replace the cabinets that were removed. The project was completed and the concrete was re-poured. The homeowners are happy knowing their in vestment is once again stabilized and the value of their property is no long a worry.
A homeowner in San Diego, was experiencing water damage and dampness in the crawlspace of the home. The homeowner knew that letting the water just sit, was not only doing damage to the home but also could possibly be causing harm to the family living in the home. The water could be causing mold to grow and the health of the family could be compromised. The homeowner found Saber and scheduled for a Design Specialist to visit the property for an evaluation. The Specialist found that the home would benefit from the CleanSpace encapsulation, installed by Saber. There was standing water in areas of the crawlspace that needed to be dried out, before the CleanSpace could be installed. A CleanSpace crew from Saber was scheduled to begin work on the property, they started off by regrading the crawlspace for proper drainage. Once the drainage was complete and the water had been dried out of the crawlspace, the CleanSpace liner was then installed. The installation included a smart sump and a drainage exit line to kept out the moisture. Then an ever last door was installed and all vents where then covered. The homeowner now has piece of mind knowing the home is moisture free and risk the families health is no longer an issue.
A home in El Segundo, California was suffering from serious foundation settlement. Large cracks had formed in the slab and walls of the home. The homeowner was concerned with what was going on with the home, so they began to research options on how to repair or replace the foundation. They found that replacing the foundation all together would not only be extremely expensive, but also very time consuming. The homeowner knew that wanted something for a permanent fix, but something that would not break the bank. The homeowners researched several options and found that Saber with their many years in business and positive reviews would be the best option. A design specialist from Saber came to the property and competed an evaluation. The homeowner liked the proposal and set an appointment for the crew to come out and get the work started. The crew came out to the home and prepped 6 areas where piers would be located in order to repair the foundation of the home. The holes were excavated and the piers were installed. Once that was complete the holes were backfilled, the cracks that had formed around the home were then filled using an epoxy injection. The crew also injected PolyLEVEL™ beneath the homes foundation to fill any voids that may have formed, and to protect the home from any future settlement.
A home in Lake Forest was suffering from sagging floors throughout the home. The homeowners were concerned with the floors and knew something needed to be done to fix the issue before it became more severe. The homeowners found Saber and knew it was the right choice for them. They made the appointment for the design specialist to come to the home and compete a property evaluation. The specialist proposed that the home needed a new girder beam installed along with SmartJacks to further stabilize the home and lift the sagging floors. The Saber crew was schedule to repair the foundation. They removed the old rotted girder beam and replaced it with a new one, they then install SmartJacks in two areas to support the beam and raise the sagging floors.

The homeowner is very pleased with the work completed and would recommend Saber to anyone with foundation issues.
Homeowners in San Diego, were looking for ways to make their home more energy efficient and to keep moisture out of their homes crawlspace. After spending many hours researching the different ways to resolve their issues, they found that Saber and the CleanSpace encapsulation installed be Saber was the best option for them. CleanSpace encapsulation is a 20 mil thick plastic liner, similar to a pool liner that can be fitted in your crawlspace to completely seal off your home from the earth. The material is incredibly durable, will last as long as the home, and will stay in place. Not only does CleanSpace make the homes crawlspace moisture free, and makes the home more energy efficient it also adds space for storage. The Saber CleanSpace installation crew was scheduled to complete the project, they arrived at the site and went right to work. The crew installed 812 sqft of CleanSpace to the homes crawlspace area. The process to install the CleanSpace began with the a dimpled polyethylene membrane under the CleanSpace liner which allows for water to flow to a sump in the crawlspace, once this is installed, the lining is then attached to the walls with fasteners that are permanently driven into the walls. The Saber crew worked diligently to complete the crawlspace. Once the crawlspace was completed the old vents were removed and the spaces were then covered to keep out moisture. The homeowners can now not only enjoy the energy efficiency of the CleanSpace, but also the added benefits: CleanSpace has an antimicrobial additive manufactured into the material, which prevents mold growth on the liner. This additive is odorless and safe.
Our PolyLevel foreman, Richard Whitehead, and his team, traveled to Fire Station No. 9, in La Jolla/ San Diego, to help remedy their slab floor's significant movement and fissure issues. After years of heavy fire truck and equipment use, small to medium hairline cracks had appeared throughout the station floor.
Upon diagnosis, It was found that the movement was most centered at the interior expansion joint. High density 4 lb. joint sealant, PolyLevel, was injected 6 feet in every direction from the control joint.
Saber and PolyLevel fixed the fire station's problem by solidifying the existing soils and filling small voids; stopping movements in the slabs. Now, Station 9's fleet can drive to emergencies feeling secure that their floor slabs won't move and compromise their life saving equipment.
Foreman Dustin Wyatt and his team were tasked with helping a family in Solana Beach rid their crawlspace of moisture and preventing it from causing the temperature in their home to rise. They were experiencing astonomical electric bills and needed a permanent solution.
Though there were no visible signs, the Saber team used a hygrometer to detect humidity in the crawlspace. After diagnosing the problem, Saber proceeded to begin with drainage matting, allowing any water to flow out in the event there is a broken pipe or something else causing extremely wet conditions. A pink wall was tehn attached to the concrete foundation wall, acting as a vapor barrier accompanied by caulking.
Saber's blue matting is then cut and and placed on top of the drainage matting and attached to the pink wall using posts and seamless tape.
Saber was able to solve the homeowner's problem of a humid and moist crawlspace by installing CleanSpace to prevent any humidity entering the crawlspace to no longer touch the soil and create moisture, therefore greatly reducing the amount of relative humidity throughou their home. The homeowner was very interested in the process, was present to view the installation, and is more than pleased with the final result.
An apartment in San Diego was observed by management to have numerous cracks throughout the stucco. When a Project Design Specialist from Saber came to evaluate their problem, the building was found to have significant settling.
Foreman, Joe Delgado, and his team began work soon after. First, Saber exposed the footing, removing tile and concrete. Five piers were installed to stabalize the side of the building that settled. The piers proved to be a permanent fix, preventing any further settlement of the affected area.
The customer was pleased with the efficiency of the Saber team and proceeded to leave a great review. The site of work completed was left in better condition than before the project began.
Saber's customer in El Cajon had noticed numerous symptoms of foundation settlement in her home. There were cracks on the interior walls of the home, and their windows wouldn't close properly at one end of the home.
In order to provide a permanent fix for her foundation issue, Saber's team installed push piers and poly level. This helped to level the slab and to stabalize her foundation.
A recently purchased home was found to have had 10 feet of wide cracks along the foundation that lined the garage wall. There were no other cracks in the garage floor or on other walls.
Saber's team came in to fix the homeowner's problem by using Polylevel foam and stitching the cracks with rebar stapling. The customer was pleased with the final result and offered to refer Saber to anyone that needed foundation crack repair.
The Escondido homeowner was experiencing cracking on his foundation slab and exterior separation of the driveway from the home. When Saber came to evaluate the problem and propose a solution, it was decided upon to install push piers along the exterior of the home to stabalize.
Foreman Joe Delgado and his team were able to successfully stabalize the home and replace the concrete where the piers were placed. The homeowner was pleased with the results and expressed his thanks for the improvements on his home.
A home in the Borrego Springs area was in dire need of Saber's services when they called to schedule an inspection and free estimate. There were doors and windows in their home not closing square, and the concrete around their property was sinking and cracking. The home was on a slab foundation. The project design specialist determined that hydraulic push piers would be the best solution to lift and stabilize the home. PolyLevel was also set as a solution to lift the surrounding walkways and patio area of the home.
Once the piering and Polylevel team arrived at the home, they had their work cut out for them. Concrete needed to be removed in order to place the piers under the home, embedding into stable bedrock below the settling soil. Six piers were placed in order to lift and stabilize the home. Concrete was then replaced above the piers.
PolyLevel was inserted underneath the sinking concrete areas by drilling small holes and pumping in the PolyLevel, all while closely monitoring the level of the concrete. Once the maximum possible lift was achieved, the holes were patched wiht concrete and the walkways and patio were at full load bearing capability in less than an hour.
The homeowners were very pleased with the results and thanked Saber for improving their home life. They were able to close all doors and windows completely, and their slab was level!
A home in Ramona, Ca was suffering from spider web-like cracks in the garage that were progressively getting bigger over time. The homeowners also were concerned about the horizontal cracks in their driveway and the fact that one corner of the driveway had dropped and split about 1/4". They called Saber to come out for a free estimate and solution to their problem.
Saber, after their inspection of the driveway and garage, determined that PolyLevel would be the best solution to the problem the homeowners were having. There was no lift necessary, but the foam was used to stabilize the garage floor and the driveway slabs.
Once work got underway, small holes were drilled in strategic areas within the garage and driveway, where PolyLevel foam was injected, stabilizing the concrete. The holes were then patched, making them barely noticeable. After the final cleanup was completed, the customer reviewed the work done and was pleased with the results.
A family in Imperial Beach, Ca were looking to renovate areas of their home, including the kitchen. Once they started exploring what needed to be done, they found that their kitchen floor was sagging. They wanted to begin renovations within 30 days and knew they had to fix the flooring before new furniture, flooring, and appliances went in. They called numerous companies to diagnose the problem, and they chose Saber to remedy their flooring issues.

Homeowner Peter Karambella Jr had a very bad issue with his pool deck in El Cajon being severally cracked. When the homeowner first moved in the house was brand-new and had perfect concrete. After living in his home for twenty years the concrete was starting to crack from voids underneath. Peter first started noticing the problem five years ago and has gotten to the point he no longer wanted to look at his pool deck since the cracks have become even more of an eyesore. One of our PolyLevel specialists Scott stabilized the concrete using our PolyLevel service to stabilize the concrete and finished off the job by sealing the cracks with Nexuspro which will seal the cracks and leave the best finish possible. Peter was extremely happy with the final result. He didn’t have to look at any cracks anymore and had a smooth surface that he and his family can enjoy.
Homeowner Graham D. in Poway had a problem with his driveway. The voids underneath have made his slabs of concrete uneven and have created large ugly cracks through the parking area. It’s not only an eye sore it’s also a safety hazard! Our Project Design Specialist Curtis recommended our 2 – part Concrete Protection System. First, we’ll inject PolyLevel to raid and stabilize the slabs of concrete and the installation of Nexus Pro joint sealant to fill and repair the crevices. The work was done by our Foreman Scott L. and his crew. Three slabs of concrete were injected with PolyLevel into 30 dime sized holes throughout the uneven areas of the driveway. Once the concrete was stabilized it had its grout filled the homeowner was excited to see the final result. Graham has dealt with this problem since he and his family first moved in their home. For the past 9 years the concrete slowly settled into the voids underneath and began doing greater damage. Him and his spouse have reached out in the past to get other professional advice on their concrete but where very disappointed by how other contractors lack of professionalism. They now have peace in mind and they know they received quality work at a reasonable price.
Homeowner Cano B. in Poway had a problem with his sidewalk and driveway. His property was surrounded by trees that were growing roots underneath his concrete. This resulted in uneven slabs on his sidewalk as well as his driveway lifting from the roots. He decided to replace his driveway entirely and remove any roots that were leftover by the trees. However, this left his sidewalk untouched and more than likely had voids underneath his sidewalk which will eventually cause the slabs to settle. This was a job for our Forman Scott who specializes in PolyLevel and his crew. First, there were dime-sized holes drilled throughout the front patio and sidewalk and were injected with PolyLevel. After the concrete is stabilized and the PolyLevel has settled Scott and his crew fills in the grout with a professional finish. Cano and his wife moved into their 1980s home back in 2016 and saw their problem right away and knew they would have to address their issue sooner or later. Over time since they have first moved it their concrete has gotten so bad that their garage door couldn’t close. They knew if they didn’t take care of their problem that it would only get worse. Even though they went to another source to fix their driveway Cano and his wife still came to us for their patio and sidewalk because they knew we would provide them with quality work at a great price. When the family saw their patio, they were thrilled that they could not tell that we were there. They were very please with our professionalism and now were WOW’D from our redefining services.

Kennedy liked what he heard and went ahead with the project. he stated, “Paul helped me identify that the gutters were the problem on top of exactly where the water was flowing in the crawlspace. Without their help, I would not have found where I needed to remove the rotted wood and fix the gutter on top of them, re-enforcing my foundation. Saber saved me over $100,0000.00+ because if they hadn't found the source of the problem, the moisture would have further damaged my house, and the foundation would have eventually cracked. In the next year or two, I'm looking to have them encapsulate my crawlspace. Saber's customer service, as well as its work ethic, is stellar. After having four other professionals check my place, no one could find the exact problems outside the service they offered. I recommend Saber for quality service and an ethical approach to finding your crawlspace or basement needs!” Here at Saber, we believe in working together to bring homeowners a redefining experience and to achieve their goals of having a safe and secure home.
Homeowner Wendy M. was experiencing many inconveniences that were from her very humid crawl space. It was starting to cause a nasty smell and gross white mildew in her 1937 home in La Jolla. She moved into her home in 2017 but started noticing her problems in late 2020. She never noticed any problems till her crawl space already started to show mold underneath her home. She and her husband never searched for any professional help with her home, we were her first call. It was crucial to her that she selected a company that will solve her problems and will keep her property clean. Our project design specialist Curtis L evaluated the home and found there were high levels of humidity and moisture in the crawl space. This was what caused mold inside the crawlspace and inside Wendy’s home! Bryan A. and his crew arrived to first remove two truckloads of Debris from the crawl space. After the crawl space was nice and clean, they went forward with the project. The crew installed 1274sq ft clean space, 2 custom-fitted Everlast doors, a condensate pump, an energy-efficient Aprilaire 1852 dehumidifier, and a single electrical outlet. Wendy now won’t be experiencing a smelly and moldy crawl space. She was shocked with how messy her crawl space was and was overjoyed with how clean it after we left.
