CRAWL SPACE REPAIR AND WATERPROOFING
Wet basements or crawl spaces are often sources of immediate and long-term problems. Standing water inside and/or seepage into residential crawl spaces and basements can cause many problems for the homeowner.
Prolonged water around the footer and foundation wall can soften the soil and weaken its bearing capacity, increasing the possibility of foundation wall movement. Serious seepage under the foundation footer may erode soil away and cause the wall to settle and crack.
SR&R designers can assist homeowners with wet basements and moist foundation walls in assessing the source and extent of the problem and in finding a remedy.
Crawl Space Encapsulation
Sealing crawl spaces is a popular solution for avoiding indoor moisture issues.
Why Encapsulate Crawl Spaces
Since up to 50% of household air can flow up from your crawl space, it’s important to keep it as clean and dry as possible. Adding a crawl space vapor barrier and dehumidifier is widely accepted as the best way to improve indoor air quality and make energy improvements inside your home.
