Crawl Space Waterproofing in Ann Arbor Protects Your Home's Structure

How Crawl Space Waterproofing Ann Arbor Helps

You may have heard that a solid foundation is important for your home's structure. Without a firm foundation, all of your exterior walls, interior walls, floors, and roof are at risk. Most foundations are put at risk when moisture gets into the foundation, particularly a crawl space. To keep water from eroding your foundation, we offer crawl space waterproofing in Ann Arbor.

Waterproofing a crawl space involves minimizing the amount of moisture getting into this area by putting down plastic sheathing. We can waterproof your crawl space using a vapor barrier or by crawl space encapsulation.  Installing a vapor barrier provides minimal coverage in the area focusing on putting the sheathing on the floor. Encapsulation involves fully covering the floor and other parts of the crawl space to protect it from moisture damage. 

Let's discuss the best option for waterproofing your crawl space. Call today to schedule an inspection and get a FREE quote on this critical service.

Why You Should Get Crawl Space Waterproofing in Ann Arbor

Although most crawl spaces have some level of moisture, excess moisture and humidity are what can start to compromise the structure of your home's foundation. Since crawl spaces are areas beneath the home and above the gravel and soil beneath the home, it is subject to the exterior temperatures more than other parts of your house. Not only do freeze and thaw cycles make your crawl space more susceptible to moisture, but so can small openings in the crawl space. Water getting into your crawl space can cause significant damage that can lead to costly repairs. Here are some reasons you should consider getting crawl space waterproofing. 

  • It keeps moisture from destroying your home's foundation.
  • Waterproofing keeps pests at bay.
  • It keeps mold from growing. 
  • Waterproofing improves the air quality of your home. 
  • It improves the overall energy efficiency of your home.

How We Get To The Heart Of Your Crawl Space Repair

In many cases, your crawl space's moisture problems are concentrated in the crawl space itself. There may be a significant amount of moisture and humidity in the area that is causing a damp environment in the area. However, sometimes crawl space moisture issues may arise from things happening outside the house. So, before we get started with crawl space waterproofing in your Ann Arbor home, we have to get to the heart of the problem.

Sometimes the roof is the reason why your crawl space is much wetter than usual. Rainwater that drains from your roof should always move away from your home's foundation. Gutter downspouts and extenders help get the job done effectively. However, if your gutter is filled with dirt, leaves, and debris, water may be spilling out of your gutter at various places causing it to leak into your crawl space. 

Another culprit is bad drainage in your yard. If your yard isn't properly graded to drain water away from your foundation, this could cause water to drain back toward your foundation. In some cases, a landscaper can fix such an issue. In other cases, we can install a French drain to help remove the excess water from your crawl space. 

Once problems outside the crawl space are resolved, we can get to work laying down a vapor barrier on the floor or encapsulating your entire crawlspace. In some cases, we may also install a dehumidifier if your crawl space suffers from too much moisture.

We Check Every Nook and Cranny of Your Foundation

Your foundation can suffer from many problems, many of which won't be recognizable by the homeowner. Soil may be shifting underneath the home putting the foundation at risk for full or partial collapse. Additionally, hydrostatic pressure may cause basement and crawl space walls to bow inward. This is why we encourage homeowners to get foundation inspections at least once a year. We may recommend a variety of our services, including crawl space encapsulation, a vapor barrier, sump pump or french drain systems. Don't let your foundation fall apart underneath you!
