    Crawlspace Access Well System in Killington, Vermont

    This Killington, Vermont home had limited access to the crawl space making it challenging to keep the space clean and dry. Our team proposed and installed an EverLast™ Crawl Space Access Well System in addition to interior crawlspace repair and waterproofing solutions to keep the space clean and dry and improve accessibility to the crawl space.

    This well is made of heavy-gauge, durable polyethylene that won't rust or rot like traditional wells and is mold resistant. Additionally, this well-system is complete with clean stone and a cover to prevent water from entering the crawl space or puddling in the well. This is the ideal solution to gain better access to most crawlspaces.

    For the last 20 years, this Winooski couple has experienced water in the basement during the spring thaw and heavy rain. They noticed that the water has been worsening the last couple years and knew they needed to get help from a pro to get this taken care of.

    Our team installed a full perimeter drainage system around the interior of the foundation, in addition to a SuperSump Plus Premier Pump System. With these systems in place, they will collect water and pump it out. This will prevent the water from entering the basement and keep the space dry year-round!
