I had Steve come out to my home to inform me of what I should do regarding my crawl space waterproofing. He gave his recommendation and did not over sell me a bunch of stuff I did not need. I highly recommend these guys not only do they do a great job but they are very reasonable on price!
Crawlspace Medic provided an encapsulation and structure repair and mold control for our older home. This crawl space waterproofing company was extremely easy to work with and catered to our schedule. They were very respectful and hard working. The staff was always on time. Jeff, Logan, and Allen provided some of the best work I’ve seen in Savannah. I would 100 percent recommend them to anyone and would absolutely hire them again. I can’t say enough good things about this company and the staff!

However, In the future if I develop a crawl space waterproofing issue I will call them right away.

Benefits of Crawl Space Waterproofing

What is Crawl Space Waterproofing?

The environment in your crawl space is crucially important. It helps regulate the atmosphere of everything above your subfloor. 

That’s why it’s necessary to control it with proper ventilation, ground covering and a moisture control system.

Without crawl space waterproofing and remediation, moisture can cause fungal growth that can lead to structural problems and deterioration of your home’s indoor air quality. 

Our professional inspectors will assess the environment of your crawl space and offer the best solution for long term health.

Typically signs of water in your crawl space or basement are standing or ponding water, water marks on foundation or basement walls, water on top of the moisture barrier and water marks or channels in the soil.

These issues are fixed with the combination of a interior French drainage system and a sump pump. Our inspections locate the source of the water and offer custom solutions for getting it out and away from the home.

A healthy crawl space has its wood moisture content levels well below 20%. Through our inspection of your crawl space, we can help determine how to achieve the correct level with the correct thickness barrier.

Our moisture barriers are crisp and clean, making your crawl space look pristine while alleviating moisture.

We typically install a 10 mil white polyethylene barrier that is taped along the overlapped seams and spiked to the ground. This type of installation allows for a continuous moisture barrier while keeping it in place.

Overall ventilation of the crawl space is crucial to maintain a healthy wood moisture content level and relative humidity.

Often times, humid and warm months can introduce excess moisture in the crawl space, causing condensation on duct work and promoting fungal growth.

Our encapsulation systems help maintain a healthy relative humidity while providing needed ventilation to your crawl space.

Crawl Space Waterproofing FAQ:

Water–something no homeowner wants to see in their basement or crawl space. Whether it’s occasional flooding, small leaks here and there, or high humidity, water in your basement or crawl space usually means there’s a bigger problem–and can cause serious problems as well.

Even if you don’t store belongings in your crawl space or your basement isn’t finished, you still need to waterproof your foundation to prevent a number of problems, including structural damage. Here are just a few things that can go wrong if you don’t waterproof your basement:

Flooding

Even if you don’t live in an area that floods regularly or experiences heavy rainfall, your basement or crawl space may still be at risk of flooding if there are cracks or fissures in your foundation’s concrete.

Humidity

A humid basement or crawl space may seem like merely an inconvenience or discomfort at first glance. But high levels of humidity under your house can lead to dry rot, mold and mildew, humidity upstairs, and poor air quality throughout your home–even leading to possible respiratory illness or aggravation.

Structural damage

Water seeping through your basement or crawl space can lead to structural damage throughout your home. Warped boards, dry rot, and even termite damage are just a few possible results of ignoring high moisture levels under your home.

 

Although the first line of defense is diverting water away from your foundation in the first place, sometimes rainfall or groundwater enters your basement regardless. In that case, you’ll want to make sure your basement or crawl space is waterproofed.

Waterproofing your basement or crawl space includes three basic methods: interior, exterior, and drainage.

Interior waterproofing

Interior waterproofing usually happens once a problem has already been identified, such as water damage or dry rot. Interior waterproofing includes strategies like sealants, coatings, and crawl space encapsulation.

Exterior waterproofing

Exterior waterproofing is usually a preventative measure, blocking water from ever entering your home in the first place. Certain drainage systems in the yard can divert water away from your foundation. Additionally, there are sealants that can be applied to the outside of your foundation.

Drainage

Proper drainage is both an internal and external strategy and can include systems like French drains and sump pumps.

Crawl space waterproofing can be expensive. So is it really worth the time and money?

Depending on the extent and frequency of water damage, water damage repair can cost thousands of dollars. But water damage left unchecked can actually cause structural damage throughout your entire house, causing even more damage and expense–not to mention inconvenience–than fixing the root problem by waterproofing your crawl space.
