Wet basements can also damage valuable living space or limit storage space.

But we don’t stop at fixing wet or leaky basements. Crawlspace waterproofing, French drains, vapor barriers and encapsulation are also specialties of ours. Preventing crawlspace moisture is key to keeping health issues caused by mold, mildew and biological substances at bay. Our crawlspace waterproofing procedures keep ground water from rising up and causing excessive water to sit on the crawlspace floor. By controlling excessive water in the crawlspace we can lock out moisture and get rid of your wet crawlspace concerns for good. Our system addresses surface water issues with our weep holes. We install quality vapor barriers and in some cases recommend encapsulation. When necessary we also perform main beam replacements along with crucial repairing of wood damage to sill plates, floor joists and band boards.
It is critical to inspect the property to properly diagnosis the source of the water intrusion and to determine the means of solving a water problem in a basement or crawlspace.
