To check for waterproofing problems, look again for cracks in the walls, cracks in the ceilings, and cracks in the floors, which can be signs of inadequate waterproofing on your exterior and interior.

It is recommended that you reduce the humidity in your home to 50% or lower. Problems that can be taken care of with dehumidification services include:

Another important area of your home is the crawl space. This part of your house plays an integral part since it provides support for your home’s foundation. The most common problem in the crawl space is a moisture issue. This results in:
The best way to keep water and humidity out of your crawl space is to use crawl space encapsulation methods and to install a vapor barrier. The vapor barrier is a plastic or foil sheeting that is used to line the crawl space wall, floor, and ceiling. Water is sealed out by the barrier, which prevents leaks through foundation cracks and stops moisture from seeping through the walls. Dehumidifiers can also reduce the moisture in your crawl space.
Structural issues can also create problems in your crawl space. Settling foundations or wood rot from crawl space moisture might lead to settling crawl space columns. To restore the structural integrity of the crawl space, you can have the team at Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services install crawl space piers to underpin the crawl space and support your foundation. These are just a sampling of our crawl space repair options; call us today to learn more.
