   A CURE FOR BASEMENT AND CRAWL SPACE PROBLEMS IN OLD HOMES


The historic 1795 Robinson Cottage in Fairfield County, CT

  Neutocrete is a Danbury company that has developed a process for restoring basements and crawl spaces.They have had extensive experience with old homes.

  The historic 1795 Robinson Cottage is one of the oldest post-revolutionary buildings in Fairfield County, CT, and is owned by the Sasquanaug Association for Southport Improvement, Inc., a non-profit neighborhood organization dedicated to preserving historic properties. The home is maintained as a residential rental.

  In 1998, the association dedicated resources to extensive renovations to the cottage due to severe degradation of the structural integrity of the building. During preliminary needs assessments, the association realized the negative impact the dirt crawl space played in the damage to the home. It became clear to the association that fixing the structural damage without addressing the source of the problem would be wasteful and would lead to similar degradation in the future. After extensive due diligence, the association chose Neutocrete Systems, Inc. to fix the crawl space.


  A three inch layer of Neutocrete was applied over a gravel base, which, after it cured over the 90-day time period, dried out the crawl space and now acts as a barrier to vapor, water intrusion, vermin, radon, mold and dry rot and has the added benefit of acting as an insulator which greatly improves the energy efficiency of the household heating system.
