Water can infiltrate your crawl space in a variety of ways and cause serious issues to any wooden structural components and jeopardize the integrity of your foundation support system. It can be difficult to know whether your crawl space has been compromised, so here are some symptoms to watch out for:
- Damp/wet foundation walls
- Standing water
- Musty odors inside your home
- Wood damage or rot
- Fungal damage on wood framing
If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s essential that you give us a call at United Structural Systems right away. One of our Nashville crawl space waterproofing specialists can assess your home and recommend the best plan for you. There are several effective options for waterproofing your crawl space and preventing water-related damage and the progressive damage that moisture accumulation can cause.
Some of the techniques and products we use for crawl space waterproofing in Nashville include:
Interior drain systems- These collect and divert water from inside the crawl space toward a sump pump for safe removal.
Sump pumps- Sump pumps are a central mechanical piece that is used in conjunction with our drain system that will remove any accumulated water out of the home.
Downspout extensions- These prevent water from pooling around your foundation walls by diverting rainwater farther away.
Based on the findings of our initial assessment of your crawl space, we may recommend one or more of these waterproofing solutions.
