It doesn’t matter what type of foundation you have installed. The one thing that is consistent with us all, is that we want to be able to best protect our homes. One of the top concerns that we should have, is how we are best going to defend our properties from the rain and flooding. Concrete and basement foundations are in direct threat to these, whilst your pier and beam foundation is subject to water damage and rotting. There are unique issues to face with each, both of which require a professional standard of waterproofing. You can look to us for your needs for water protection, certain that we will devise a solution that is individual to your home.
Basements are very easily affected in the rain, even if there is only a small volume. And whilst your basement may not be flooded in a light shower, it still means that you can’t take full use of the space, without fear of dampness and mold. You should apply one of our two methods of waterproofing. We will provide either an interior or exterior waterproofing method, using either a sump pump or external materials, respectively. This way, you know that moisture will never be a problem in your basement. You can make full use of your basement again, with confidence.
Crawl Space Waterproofing
If you have a crawl space installed under your home, the flow of water won’t be your initial concern. However, if water is able to build and pool in the area, it will begin to cause a threat. Your wooden piers and beams will be easily water damaged, which will quickly turn into molding and rotting. Nobody wants to put their home in this direct risk, so, the best thing you can do is have your crawl space waterproofed. We will set up a sufficient drainage system to carry away any water, before coating the whole space with a vapor barrier.
Vapor Barrier Installation
A vapor barrier is a sheet of waterproof plastic, used to line the perimeter of crawl spaces and basements. You can actually have this barrier used in any room in your house, knowing that it will serve its purpose well. Not only does it resist the force of the rain, but it also guards against any condensation building up inside it. If that sounds like something your home would benefit from, we can be of service to you.

You need to be able to best prevent any damage happening to your home, to keep your family out of harm’s way. Through our comprehensive waterproofing methods, we can help you achieve that.
