Like many homes, our cabin is built over a soil crawl space. While crawl spaces offer simple construction and access to the underside of your home, they provide little protection from the environment, and can lead to structural and air quality problems within your home.
Standing water, high moisture levels, soil gas, dust and an abundance of rodents and other critters are common in unsealed dirt crawl spaces.
Traditional thinking (and building codes) promoted ventilation of crawl spaces to circulate outside air into the crawl space and control moisture.
Unfortunately, ventilation of crawl spaces often does more harm than good. In many climates, ventilation can make moisture problems worse by introducing an unending supply of relatively humid outside air into the crawl space that can form water once in contact with the cool surfaces within a crawl space.

If you have a dirt or gravel floor inside the crawl space, we could also install (pump) a concrete floor to reduce moisture and provide additional storage space. We can also install a Crawl Space Liner.

They protect your foundation’s crawl space from becoming wet or flooding, and stop all sorts of drainage issues. By directing water to an area that is a safe distance away from your foundation, your piers and wooden beams are spared from deterioration.
To determine what type of drainage system you need, it’s best to enlist an experienced contractor who knows a great deal about drainage issues. It is quite possible that you will require a surface drain such as a crawl space sump pump. The type of system is basically a collection box that disburses the water to another area of your yard. It works automatically and is highly effective in preserving crawl spaces associated with pier and beam foundations.
If you believe that you have a drainage issue in your crawl space, it’s a good idea to call for a crawl space evaluation right away. The sooner you install an efficient system, the better off you’ll be. If you’d like a no-cost estimate, Contact Worldwwide Waterproofing & Foundation Repair for a free Estimate 410-437-0360
