Crawlspace Waterproofing

Make your crawlspace dry again... Guaranteed!*

Fixing a wet crawlspace begins with high-performance products & trained technicians

A wet crawlspace is not a healthy situation for you or your home. Obviously, anything the water touches that isn’t waterproof will be damaged. As importantly, high moisture levels in a space that takes a longer time to dry out can lead to wood rot, mold, and a welcoming place for all sorts of critters.

Let us help! Our filter-less system ensures that your system lasts. Plus, our lifetime warranty is worth more than the paper it is written on. As a 63-year-old company, we've been around to back our lifetime warranty.

On top of that... we offer a Money-Back Guarantee* ... if we can't fix it, we'll return your money!

Do you need to waterproof your crawlspace?

Here’s why… Time is not on your side with a wet crawlspace.

You don’t go into your crawlspace too often, you don’t store anything in your crawlspace, so do you need to have it waterproofed? You’ve probably lived with the situation for a while or purchased a house or building that the previous owner never fixed. So why not just leave it alone?

Wet or damp crawlspace conditions can compromise the structural integrity of your building or home. High moisture or high humidity lead to wood rot and mold growth.

Eventually the floors above your crawlspace may sag and wood floors buckle or warp. Musty smells, including mold spores, rise from the crawlspace and into your living or office space through the stack effect. "Warm air rises" is a quick explanation of the stack effect.

Air leaks into the upstairs through tiny holes created for pipes and wires, through joints and gaps in your flooring system, through wall cavities, and through ducting if your HVAC system is located in your crawlspace. This damp and musty environment is also the ideal breeding ground for mold, mildew, and critters of all sizes.

If these reasons aren’t enough, a wet crawlspace decreases the value of your home.

What's getting sucked into the HVAC unit in this crawlspace? This crawlspace has it all... mold, spiders, soaked insulation from all the moisture in the air... Believe it or not, we can help! We'll get the water out, remove the nasty insulation and re-insulate, and remove the mold. Add a '58 Foundations' encapsulation system and you'll want to around in here in your pajamas!"
With just enough light coming through the open vents, and a damp floor, this crawlspace is becoming its own terrarium.

’58 Foundations’ crawlspace waterproofing system

A ’58 Foundations’ crawlspace waterproofing system will include some or all of the products below:

  • Perimeter drainage channel. ’58 Foundations’ perimeter drainage channel is designed to capture floor and wall leakage. It is engineered to be filter-less, self-cleaning, and non-clogging – important factors when considering that the channel will be in the dirt of your crawlspace floor. Filtered drainpipes are problematic in that they need to be replaced when they clog as the filter is built in.
  • Waterproof wall membrane. A flexible liner that is fastened to the wall and drains water seepage down behind it and into the drainage channel. This is the same material we use on the walls in our crawlspace encapsulation system.
  • Sump pump system. ’58 Foundations provides the best-performing sump pump systems available, including fully redundant, battery backup models that keep working even when the power goes out or when the primary pump gets overwhelmed with heavy water flows.
  • Crawlspace Dehumidifier. ’58 Foundations’ heavy-duty commercial dehumidifier will dry out a damp crawlspace and automatically maintain a pre-set humidity level. By controlling crawlspace humidity, you create conditions that mold and mildew won’t grow in.
