Adirondack Basement Systems recently had the opportunity to assist The Nassau Free Library in Nassau, NY. The crawl space below the library needed a vapor barrier and some much-needed support to stop the floors from sagging.
Bill Seabridge is one of our structural System Design Specialists, once he was assigned this inspection he was right out there to propose a solution for this amazing facility! Bill proposed SmartJacks to replace the old style jacks they were using to support the structure. He also proposed CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system.
The library had a dirt crawl space under it, this damp environment is very unhealthy and destructive. The CleanSpace encapsulation system completely isolated the library from the earth, this dramatically reduced the humidity level in the air which, when combined with sealing outside air and dehumidification, eliminated mold growth and rot from their crawl space, this has made the entire library a healthier place.
