Job Stories From Lake Echo, NS
Crawlspace Encapsulation

Sarah, a homeowner in Lake Echo, Nova Scotia noticed her home has a very nasty and constant smell throughout her home. She knew exactly where the smell was coming from, but without professional help there would be no way to resolve the issue. 

Sarahs home sits on a crawl space, which did not even have an access point when she began investigating. She knew this was not a job that could be done on her own and began looking for a company to help her. An appointment was scheduled with Ridgeback Basement Systems, to look at the crawl space and formulation a solution. 

Gerard knew this dirt, wet, nasty crawlspace was a perfect contender for a full encapsulation with the use of our Cleanspace Encapsulation system. Gerard explained the system to Sarah and ultimately decided to move forward with the project. 

Our production team installed a full crawlspace encapsulation paired with drainage matting and a SaniDry Sedona. These products together will keep Sarahs crawl space clean, dry, and remove all unwanted smells.

Dehumidifier questions and answers for my crawl space. Appears to be already wrapped, it does have ventilation holes but I am reading in your test to cover these? I think my living room floor is warping. I need a professional that knows about crawl spaces and what to look for. Thank you Sandra

I had some water damage a few months ago that I had fixed. I'm now looking to find out if the fix was done right, if there will be further water damage, and how I can keep my basement dry going forward.

My wife and I purchased our home in March of last year. I knew that the home had a crawlspace, but only recently ventured down there. The home inspector who inspected our home prior to buying didn't even venture down there, which is quite unfortunate. I was relieved to see that it was easily accessible though and isn't very tight to walk around in (crouching, instead of crawling). It is vented by 3 vents to the outside and has fibreglass insulation between the floor joists. That's it as far as what's down there. Gravel floor, but doesn't appear to be any moisture at the moment. The fibreglass insulation was hanging down quite a bit and there was a lot of evidence of prior rodent damage. I tucked the insulation back into place as best as I could, but I figure there is a repair needed for the future. An estimate would be greatly appreciated so we know what we're looking at.

We just purchased two side-by-side apartment buildings in Lake Echo. There is a very wet basement wall in the crawl space at least in one building. I have no chance yet to inspect the other one. I would like to get a quote on fixing this issue.

Cracks in the block foundation around the ground level. I want to have it assessed before I have the area around the house regraded.

2 years ago our basement flooded... we removed the flooring and some of the sheetrock to find out where the water was coming in... Couldn't find a drain at all. It only floods during extremely heavy rain fall and has flooded 3 times in the last 2 years. No one place where the water comes in that we could tell. We need a solution to help with draining during these heavy periods - sump pump maybe?
