Choosing a Waterproofing Company for Your Florida Basement or Crawl Space
Have a musty, wet basement or crawl space? Damp basements and crawl spaces are something no homeowner should deal with alone. If you are suffering from constant worry about the health and safety of your basement or crawl space, it’s time for a change. If you’ve tried DIY efforts to fix pooling water, cracks in your foundation, leaky basement windows, or high humidity, it’s time to find an experienced, professional waterproofer you can trust. A wet basement or crawl space wastes valuable living space, damages building materials and stored possessions, pollutes the indoor air, risks the health of those living in the home, and puts your investment in your home at risk. That adds up to considerable risk.
Look for expertise, training, and experience.
When you choose a professional waterproofer in the Basement Systems network, you get a local company trained in and devoted to the best waterproofing practices. Each contractor listed here is an expert in the diagnosis of sub-grade moisture problems as well as the design and installation of proper drainage, moisture and humidity control, and basement materials.

Why Do Florida Basements & Crawl Spaces Get Wet?
Flooded basement: Once your basement gets flooded, you want to understand why, in addition to getting it fixed. Severe basement flooding in Florida can be caused by heavy spring rains, tropical storms and hurricanes, and flash floods.
Other reasons for wet basements and crawl spaces: There are many possible sources for pooling water, damp basement walls or flooring, and high humidity. These include: rusty basement windows, poor grading around the foundation, leaks through cracks in the foundation, saturated soils, simple plumbing failures, and poorly functioning drainage or sump pump systems. A basement or crawl space already musty and damp is ill-prepared for the next bad rainstorm! Basement waterproofing can address the underlying issues, prevent future water damage and improve the indoor air quality.

Florida's Trusted Waterproofing Company
"I can highly recommend IEM. They were very professional, tremendously courteous, and surprisingly inexpensive..."
Tanju C. of Jacksonville, FL
Our frame house is located right on the river and has a basement. Its size is approximately 1,500 square feet with about 1/3 on soil and 2/3 on concrete slab. The basement was quite damp and during strong rains could take on about 2 inch of water. The old sump pump could minimize the damage, but the accumulative damage was pretty strong. Especially in a frame house the structure is very susceptible to water and the damage and odor travels throughout the house. When we bought the property last fall we decided right away that this has has to be fixed right away. After researching a couple of companies we decided to go with IEM. They were courteous on the phone and were ready to dispatch a specialist the next day for a free estimate. PJ arrived at our house and did a thorough inspection. Since nothing had been done in the 100 years before (except for the old sump pump) and our location right on the river he recommended to encapsulate the basement and install further water barriers around the property. So in detail they performed the following: Basement Encapsulation: ---------------------------------- - remove old insulation, regrade the dirt, clean and disinfect the subflooring system - dig a trench around the perimeter of the basement - install a pipping system and and backfill the drainage system - remove all 15 windows units and replace it with newer windows - install drainage matting throughout the basement ground cover - remove old sump pump and install a sump pump with 2 failover systems - ensure all trench systems feed into the sump pump for max efficiency - install a 20 millimeter thick polythene membrane on the ground - install the polythene membrane on the wall to a height of 4 feet - install an industrial sized dehumidifier to eradicate any further excess moisture Foundation Wall Repair: -------------------------------------- - remove plants, pavers and anything else which might interfere with work progress - excavate soil around foundation wall completely around the building to about 2 feet - clean and prep foundation wall surface - repair mortar joints and concrete block surfaces - apply a coating of surface bonding cement to all foundation wall surfaces - apply commercial waterproofing compound on all of the surface areas of the foundation wall and footer- install a french drain system and a discharge line around parts of the perimeter The contract price was set fixed at around $45k and IEM estimated a 2-3 week time frame. During the project Clay and his amazing team encountered tons of unanticipated issues. The strong roots from the trees around the building had disintegrated the walls much more than was visible at first. Many bricks where simply hollowed out and Clay and his team were rebuilding a good part of the wall foundation completely from scratch. Since we're located in a historic district IEM could not simply install new windows, but were painstakingly remodeling each of the 15 windows by hand (sanding down, paint in previous color, sand clean each glass plate, fix all joints) and now those historic windows look like new. IEM also took care of getting the permits from the historic society to make the necessary changes. Clay and his team worked highly professional and efficient. Nevertheless it took more than double the anticipated time to finish the project. All the trouble with the windows was neither in the contract nor was it anticipated. Nevertheless IEM did not charge us a dime extra. I can highly recommend IEM. They were very professional, tremendously courteous, and surprisingly inexpensive regarding all the work that had to be done. Moreover, there were so many aspects to consider and it was great to have the same points of contact for all those issues (Clay and PJ). Both were very responsive to any concern and addressed them all. Moreover, even the company owner and basement guru John come out several times to make sure everything went smoothly. We feel very happy that we chose IEM. Our once damp basement which was ruining our frame structure is now a dry basement and solid for the next 50 years! The odor is completely gone and the whole house should get less hot in summer and less cold in winter.
"John Hassler and the entire team were true professionals."
Richard G. of Tallahassee, FL
I am a very satisfied customer of Indoor Environmental Mgmt. John Hassler and the entire team were true professionals. They went above and beyond to insure that our crawl space concerns were addressed. He (John) took ownership of the problem which gave us confidence that the remedy (encapsulation and structural) would be done the right way even if it exceeded the original quote. Additionally, our job was completed ahead of the schedule and I have never seen such a hard working implementation crew as Carlos's team. Everyone we dealt with at IEM was responsive and professional.
"Thank you for the letter. It is exactly what I wanted. Our experience working with IEM has been excellent. ..."
