Our customers in Blakeslee, PA were looking to add a 40' by 6' covered front porch to their home. Our Project Consultant, Tom, presented many options to help them design a porch they would love for years to come. They chose to use Azek PVC Porch decking in Slate Gray and white Landmarke Vinyl Railings. The finished project looks great and the homeowners are happy. We look forward to working with them again in the future!
Burke Construction was contacted by Poplar Valley Methodist Church in Stroudsburg, PA to evaluate some concerns the members had with the crawlspace. Years ago a contractor came along and spray insulated the floor joists under the entire church, this helped with the insulation but did nothing to correct the moisture problems underneath. In fact, it made it worse. Burke Construction utilized the CleanSpace system along with spray insulation, properly applied to the foundation walls, to seal and eliminate the moisture problems! We also sealed and taped all the ductwork in the newly encapsulated crawlspace to reduce duct leakage. The members said the noticed a difference immediately!
Another CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation installed in a weekend home in Lake Naomi- Pocono Pines, Pa. This homeowner was suffering from the ill effects of a damp, moldy, dirty crawl space leaking air into the house above, but those problems are a thing of the past and they now enjoy a fresh smelling, warm, dry home thanks to the CleanSpace System!
This homeowner in East Stroudsburg, PA had Large 3000sf vented crawlspace with 1'' of foam on the block walls. The floor was thin concrete over dirt. Also in the crawlspce was the main boiler which ran there hot water baseboard heat,plus a 50 gallon water heater.
The family started noticing the moldy smells in their closets to the extent they could no longer store clothes and shoes there in the summer.
Using our patented drainage matting, 20 mil Cleanspace, closed cell spray foam to seal the walls and add R-value. Furthermore we sealed the vents and installed a new insulated steel entry door. We also added direct fresh air to the boiler. Now that we created a sealed, insulated space. We conditioned it with a Sanidry CX dehumidifier.
The home owner said it is so much more comfortable and there are no more musty smells!
Now that all the hot water heat pipes are in a conditioned area the boiler runs a lot less and the home is dry and healthy!
