Crawl Space Waterproofing
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.
