Crawl Space Waterproofing

Crawl Space WaterproofingCrawl spaces are a common in areas with a high water table. Crawl spaces allow a home to be lifted off the damp earth, which can help prevent water and moisture from seaping in to the home. This however does mean that there is a good chance that your crawl space will see moisture issues and will have to be waterproofed in order to be a usable and effective space. If you don’t waterproof your crawlspace, that moisture that collects beneath your home can be pulled up in to your home. Poor or improper drainage is the primary cause of a damp crawlspace. Just like with a basement waterproofing, the primary goal is to get rain water and ground water away from the ground below your home.

Crawl space waterproofing can involve adding a vapor barrier to your crawl space to keep out moisture. Also the use of a dehumidifier can reduce moisture and prevent a mold build up. The key to waterproofing your crawlspace is keeping water away and from being able to settle within your crawlspace.
