Crawl Space Waterproofing

Crawl Space Waterproofing Solutions in Alabama

Insects, rodents, and mold all thrive in dark, moist spaces. All three are regularly found in the crawl space beneath your home. That is because the moisture that collects in crawl spaces not only allows the growth of mold and mildew, it also attracts pests and can damage the integrity of your home's foundation and structure. By causing enough damage, it can even decrease your home's property value.

What to Do About Water in Your Crawl Space

The best way to avoid a wet crawl space is to waterproof the area before it gets to that point. Ox Foundation Solutions can help with that by using high-quality and top-rated products coupled with professional techniques to successfully reduce moisture and groundwater. Without crawl space waterproofing, your crawl space remains vulnerable to surface water.

A reliable sump pump system paired with an encapsulation system will remove and prevent any water and moisture found in your crawl space. Our sump-pump system is fully equipped with a sump pump and liner, alarm, and floor drain. It can also include a battery backup system that means you never have to worry about drying out your crawl space or letting a plumbing leak go unnoticed.

The sump pump also has an airtight lid that helps to keep the liner in place. Should any water from a plumbing leak reach the system, the alarm will alert you and the floor will drain automatically.

Crawl Space Drainage Systems will Protect Your Property

Just having a liner won't cut it and crawl spaces can remain wet for months before a homeowner may notice. But with a top-notch system installed, your sump pump does all the work for you by protecting your crawl space. Our systems are fully compatible with our encapsulation system to ensure that your crawl space is always protected.

Crawl space drainage systems protect your crawl space and ensure there's never any moisture that can damage your property at any given time. Any standing water could cause a slew of problems but by installing a crawl-space drainage system, we can direct any water into a sump pump to remove it from your crawl space.

We also have other ways to dry your crawl space that include drainage matting, crawl-space vent covers, an encapsulation system and a crawl space dehumidification system. That way, you never have to worry about water damage in your crawl space while you are unaware or away.
