Total protection. This Basement Systems waterproofing system includes a sump pump with battery backup (for protection during power outages) and a heavy-duty SaniDry™ crawl space dehumidifier.
Building scientists and other building experts recommend that crawl spaces be sealed or encapsulated. This upgrade makes buildings more energy efficient and eliminates problems with moisture, mold and pests in the crawl space. Some crawl spaces also need to be waterproofed.
There are several signs that indicate a waterproofing system may be necessary in a crawl space. One obvious sign is standing water on the crawl space floor. If the crawl space has a dirt floor, wet soil can also indicate that a waterproofing system should be installed.
Products that promote good drainage. Installed beneath the vapor barrier, dimpled plastic drainage matting promotes good drainage along the crawl space floor. SmartPipe™ perimeter drain pipe collects water from floor and wall leakage, transporting it to a crawl space sump pump. This photo also shows SilverGlo™ wall insulation.
