Crawlspace waterproofing is not something you think about day to day, but when water invades, there can be major consequences with your health, foundation, finances, and your sanity!
There’s A Growing Problem In Your Crawlspace…
One of the benefits of crawlspaces over basements or slab foundations is having access to all of your home’s wiring, ductwork, and pipes. If there is a problem with your plumbing, HVAC, or electrical system, access is easily granted to the needed places instead of intense excavation to find the problem. Knowing that those elements are exposed in a crawlspace, it only makes sense that moisture in there could cause huge problems. Whether it seeps in from outside or is a direct result of a leaking pipe, water in your crawlspace can have devastating effects and cause major damage.
In addition to the damage to the systems, moisture in your crawlspace can cause high humidity that when forced upward (known as the stack effect) can creep into your living spaces and ultimately your lungs. Cooler air in winter and warmer air in summer is pulled through vents and walls causing a strain on your heating and air conditioning system and bringing mold, pests or pollen up through your house.
Negative Consequences of a Moisture and Wetness in Crawlspace:
- Standing water raises the relative humidity in your crawlspace to a level at which mold, mildew and fungi thrive.
- Wet crawlspaces create a breeding ground for termites, dust mites, insects and other pestilents (small animals).
- Muddy soil weakens the footings under your home causing uneven floors and potential long-term structural damage.
- Water vapors are absorbed by the subfloor, causing it to eventually rot. They also cause cupping in hardwood floors.
- Moisture under your home contributes to the corrosion and rusting of expensive utility systems located in the crawlspace.
- Damp conditions cause odors and musty smells in the living space.
The Aqua-Guard Crawlspace Waterproofing System
Your solution to Water and Moisture Problems in the Crawlspace under your home.
Exterior waterproofing systems focused on the foundations are often the first attack on removing water. This is method most homebuilders use to around crawlspace foundations. Unfortunately, they are temporary solutions that rarely have any long term effect on blocking water. Here at Aqua-Guard, we have developed a unique crawlspace system based on the laws of physics. It is designed to intercept rising groundwater before it ever reaches the crawlspace. That is where we come in…
The Aqua-Guard Crawlspace System is designed to intercept rising ground water before it reaches the interior of the crawl space.
The Aqua-Guard Crawlspace System is uniquely designed to provide a PERMANENT solution to the growing problem in your crawlspace. It solves all the areas water can penetrate your crawlspace and removes up to 60% more water than other systems.
Life of the Structure Warranty
A warranty is a measure of the confidence the contractor has in the work they have done. With the complete waterproofing solution Aqua-Guard provides, we are able to offer one of the industry’s strongest warranties; a “Life of the Structure” warranty. The Aqua-Guard warranty transfers from owner to owner, staying with the property, not the individual. Remember, the warranty is only as good as the company that stands behind it.
