wet, flooded crawlspace in need of crawlspace waterproofingInsect infestations, water damage, and musty odors are just a few signs of water-related issues that affect crawlspaces. If your home has water in the crawlspace, hire a professional to assess your crawlspace before water destroys your home’s structure. Affordable Foundation and Home Repair offers professional crawlspace waterproofing for homes in the Huntsville and Birmingham, AL area.

What is crawlspace waterproofing? It is a waterproofing method that is designed to prevent water damage and excess moisture. It can also reduce mold growth and foundation failure to keep your home in good condition. Since crawlspaces are located underneath homes, air circulates throughout the home. If mold grows in the crawlspace, it could affect the overall air quality of the home causing serious health issues for your family. To combat this, we offer soda blasting for mold removal. Moisture also affects pipes, ductwork and insulation in the crawlspace. Crawl space sealing is an option.

Advantages of Crawlspace Waterproofing

Waterproofing a crawl space involves a number of methods to prevent moisture and humidity buildup. We offer sump pumps and vapor barriers to keep your crawlspace dry. Sump pumps are used to pump water away from the home. A sump pump in a crawl space is a great way to dry out the area. Vapor barriers consist of a plastic sheeting in the crawlspace to prevent moisture from building up beneath the home, effectively sealing your crawlspace.

Crawlspace waterproofing materials that we use include:

  • Ezflow drainage pipe
  • Zoeller sump pumps
  • Jackel sump basins
  • 1 1/2″ PVC pipe to discharge water out of home
  • NDS Pop-Up emitter

Homeowners may benefit from wet crawlspace flooding by cleaning gutters on a daily basis. Remove leaves and debris to allow water to redirect water away from the home. Install the proper downspout extensions to prevent pooling water in your yard. If you don’t want groundwater in your crawlspace, that’s a great place to start.
