Waterproofing a crawlspace as defined means preventing any ground water from passing through the foundation and accumulating in the crawlspace.
Most waterproofing techniques must be applied during the construction of the structure.
Outside perimeter drains, gutters, waterproofing materials on foundation walls and proper sloping of the land next to the structure all need to be considered.

Reality is, in most construction, the proper steps have not been followed through. In this case, water management is the proper term for the control of ground water entering the crawlspace. It may be possible to upgrade the gutters and improve the grade of the land but most often it is impractical to completely prevent water from entering the crawlspace. Landscaping, sidewalks, HVAC units and other items on the exterior of the home make it very difficult to achieve the desired results.

The best approach now becomes water management. Admitting that water is going to pass through the foundation and controlling it so it is no longer a concern.

A properly installed interior perimeter drainage system with a proper sump pit and sump pump discharging to the exterior of the crawlspace is mandatory for the control of water entering the crawlspace.

Even if the structure has water entering only every five to ten years the drainage system will be there to eliminate the destruction its effects can have.

Think of a drainage system as an insurance policy for your crawlspace!

Indiana South West Customer Testimonials

We spent thousands of dollars with a local company that did a very sloppy job and didn't do what they had promised. Luckily we consulted with Tom and he went down into the crawl space and took pictures to show us what was going on. I certainly didn't want to go in there, especially before Tom did his thing. The bottom line, Tom fixed the problem and we went from standing water in the crawl space to a dry crawlspace. Tom came by several times and checked his work, sometimes in the snow. He sticks by his work and will work hard until you are satisfied. Trust us, if we had gone with Tom from the beginning we would have saved money and had it done right the first time. I can't recommend his services enough

Our offices were so damp and musty that sometimes it was hard to breath. The floors had swollen and were buckling in several places. You could actually feel the moisture on the walls. Our expensive recording equipment was deteriorating by the day. The Crawlspace Doctor fixed it all in a few days and has come by a number of times in the last year and a halfjust to check and make sure that everything is OK (at no charge--and the problems have never returned). We have been very satisfied. You'll love Tom, he really is 'the crawl space doctor.

This is a brief note of appreciation for your work on our crawlspace. Your work was excellent; we are very pleased with the results. We do not get any moisture inside the house and the crawl space itself is dry. The pump you installed there has done a wonderful job during the recent heavy rains, which caused problems for many people. It is great to have peace of mind, knowing that the crawl space is protected. We are also happy with your prompt response to any questions and special requests that we had. Keep up the good work. We can recommend your work to anyone without any reservations
