It is really fun to have a pool…
… but most people do not want to go swimming in their basement!

At Great Lakes Waterproofing, we love water – just not water in the wrong places. We have refined basement waterproofing methods to help keep water from ruining your basement and keep that pool in the backyard where it belongs!

Problem: Wet Crawl Space

There is a variety of serious issues that can be caused by damp and flooded crawl spaces, including the creation of an environment where mold, mildew, and fungi can thrive and can pose major health and safety concerns to anyone inhabiting the structure. Additionally, unimpeded moisture can create significant structural damages such as rotting out a sill plate and potentially spreading to the floor joists. Damage of that magnitude might result in the very expensive needs to consult with a structural engineer and to rebuild the foundation. Moisture concerns need to be corrected as soon as they are discovered and thoroughly.

Solution: Crawl Space Encapsulation

Great Lakes Waterproofing specialists can complete a free estimate. They can work with you to develop an action plan that specifically addresses your concerns and helps you to have a moisture-free, structurally sound, usable storage area.

For example, regular plastics can become brittle and easily crack when exposed to harsh weather conditions. However, research shows that the use of polyethylene as a base material prevents rapid molecular breakdown and provides a long-lasting resource that can survive wet crawl spaces in harsh Midwest weather. This material is similar in appearance and texture to a pool liner. Great Lakes Waterproofing encapsulates a crawl space with two layers of polyethylene sheeting using a nylon string running between the layers for reinforcement, increased strength, and a permanent solution.

Crawl Space Waterproofing

Satisfied customers since 1978

We purchased our house from someone who had hired them initially. So we are a license transfer of warranty. We had them come out to our house twice to service some water issues and they very prompt, courteous and did an excellent job. It’s been around three years now and all is dry.

“It was very good. They were prompt, came exactly when they were supposed to, did what they were supposed to do, and the crew was pleasant. It was the type of experience that you’d want if someone was doing work in your home. The job took a couple of days and it has worked just fine.”

I researched this company and discovered it invented the outside-injection process in the 1970s for sealing basements without having to dig up the ground/foundation. They understand the concept that, if the water is coming from the outside, you need to treat it from the outside to keep the water off the wall! Other companies only have the inside systems that don't address the source (external) of the water. Great Lakes has a variety of options, and the volclay-bentonite they provided for my house permanently stopped the water and mold!
