Moisture
What You Need to Know

Moisture and water are the same thing. It doesn’t matter if you call your basement damp, musty, moist, or outright flooded — it all goes back to the presence of water where conditions should be dry. Even if there is no standing water in your basement or crawl space, you can still be experiencing moisture damage if it is beyond safe levels.

Unhealthy moisture levels from humidity and water vapor lead to the presence of mold, musty smells, and dirty air in your basement or crawl space. This air will find its way into your living space, which means you and your family will be breathing those pollutants. High moisture levels can lead to mold growth, rot and unwanted pests.

Even a small amount of moisture can lead to a snowball effect of other issues and costly repairs. This is why it’s so important to make sure you’re dealing with your moisture issues as soon as possible, however small they may seem.

Our Crawl Space and Basement Moisture Control Services

Every home is different. That’s why we customize our moisture control services to the task at hand. We don’t offer a one-size-fits-all solution. We tailor our services to your specific needs to get you the results you’re looking for.

Since moisture control is a key factor in all our services, the way we approach it varies. Here are some of the ways we control moisture in basements and crawl spaces:

  • Foundation Repair

    Cracked, damaged foundations can let moisture inside. We fix damaged foundations and solve the moisture issue to ensure no further damage occurs.

  • Structural Repairs

    We can replace and repair rotten joists and main beams.

  • Crawl Space Waterproofing

    Building codes have allowed crawl spaces to be made in ways that let water and water vapor inside. We offer a full range of services to solve crawl space water issues and turn them into dry areas of the home with healthier air and increased energy-saving potential.

  • Basement Waterproofing

    Like crawl spaces, basements can experience high moisture levels. By crafting custom solutions for our clients, we can waterproof any basement and turn it into usable storage space or a finished basement.

  • Dehumidification

    Dehumidification plays a major role in proper waterproofing. We have top-of-the-line dehumidifiers that are engineered to specifically work in the cooler temperatures commonly present in crawl spaces and basements.

  • Crawl Space Encapsulation

    Crawl space encapsulation is a form of crawl space waterproofing that uses specific materials and practices to achieve a dry, safe crawl space. We like to say the floors are clean enough to eat off!

  • Sump Pumps

    Like dehumidifiers, sump pumps are another key component in effective moisture control. We offer the best sealed sump pumps to safely expel water from your basement or crawl space.
