Drainage & dehumidification. A complete crawl space waterproofing system will include a sump pump, a heavy-duty dehumidifier like the SaniDry™ unit shown here, and a perimeter drainage system as shown below.
Is water leaking into your crawl space? Seepage through crawl space walls and the crawl space floor is a problem in many homes. Left untreated, a wet crawl space can easily be damaged by mold, termites, and wood rot. Fortunately, wet crawl space problems can be eliminated by installing an effective waterproofing system.
The waterproofing experts at Madole Construction can install a crawl space waterproofing system that addresses all your needs.
We make it easy to repair your wet crawl space by providing a free inspection and estimate. As Nevada's trusted waterproofing contractor, we serve Sun Valley, Truckee, Sparks, Carson City, Reno and the surrounding area.
This homeowner in Sparks, NV had a crawl space that was not only bowing but was completely exposed to the rock wall foundation. A crew from Madole Construction installed a series of SmartJacks to help support the weight of the home as well as a CleanSpace Encapsulation system to permanently control the moisture levels and environment. The homeowner is now happy with their structurally safe and clean storage solution!
This crawl space in Sparks, NV was being supported with stacked cinder blocks, a temporary solution that the homeowner wanted corrected. After contacting Madole Construction, our crew installed a SmartJack system that will support this home's foundation for years to come!
This crawlspace was submerged in water for months. Madole installed two temporary sump pumps to deter the water out of the crawlspace to start the CleanSpace encapsulation. Before picture you can see the mud and rubble created in the crawlspace from the water damage. Our crew dug trenches along with the pumps to dry out the crawlspace in order to put down the CleanSpace material to start the encapsulation. The after picture, you can see the crew successfully laid down the CleanSpace material and was able to dry out the crawlspace. Our CleanSpace encapsulation process for this job includes dehumidifiers to regulate the moisture/humidity in the crawlspace as well as SmartSumps to notify the home owner of any water that may be in the crawlspace one the encapsulation is complete.
The best time to install a crawl space waterproofing system is when the crawl space is being sealed or encapsulated. The air and vapor barriers used in the encapsulation process prevent moist exterior air from entering the crawl space and condensing on cool crawl space surfaces. A waterproofing system will capture water that seeps through crawl space walls and floor areas, transporting this water to a sump pump for automatic ejection to the exterior.
Invisible and effective. SmartPipe™ perimeter drains and dimpled Drainage Matting are covered by a durable CleanSpace® moisture barrier.
To promote good drainage along the crawl space floor, we recommend installing our innovative drainage matting. This dimpled plastic sheet is especially important to use in a dirt-floored crawl space.
The patented SmartPipe™ drainage system is designed for installation against crawl space walls. Thanks to its unique profile and integral filter fabric protection, SmartPipe™ will never clog or fail to capture wall and floor seepage. This perimeter drainage system is connected to a crawl space sump pump that automatically pumps collected water outside your house. For best protection, install a Basement Systems sump pump system with battery backup. This protection ensures that your waterproofing system will keep working even when the power goes out.
The final ingredient in a complete crawl space waterproofing system is a SaniDry® crawl space dehumidifier. A crawl space dehumidifier isn't required in all cases, but one may be necessary in a large crawl space or a crawl space that has been wet for a long time. A SaniDry™ dehumidifier is designed to easily handle the low temperatures and harsh crawl space conditions that can overwhelm standard "appliance store" models.
