Waterproofing

Crawlspace Doctor of West Central Indiana will install and service waterproofing for your crawl space in West Central Indiana, Morgan County, Clay County, Hendricks County, Parke County, Putnam County, Sullivan County, Vermillion County, Vigo County and the cities of Martinsville, Mooresville, Terre Haute.

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 West Central Customer Testimonials

Chris's crew cleaned the crawl space and did a fantastic job in preparing the space. They went above and beyond to ensure that the crawl space was sealed and that the trouble spots were addressed. They were on time and provided excellent customer service. Chris took the time to prepare the photos to show the crawl space trouble spots and was very honest in all of his recommendations. His team cleaned the workspace when they were done and then Chris took after photos to show what was done. While this is not a visible home improvement, it has improved the humidity in the house and in the windows. This was a worthwhile investment and would recommend this business to anyone needing this work done.

Joann Novak

Didn't have work done, needed an estimate of the crawlspace work needed and cost to fix problems. Chris was very thorough and knowledgeable. He spent over an hour under my house, evaluating everything and taking pictures that he then put on a cd for me to view. If I was staying in my home or the party hiring the contractor, I would definitely hire Chris from the Crawlspace Doctor. He was very professional and thorough in his evaluation and spent time explaining his findings and the best way to result the current problems and how to proactively curb future problems. As time was critical due to the sale process, Chris worked us right into his schedule and came out the next day to give us an estimate.

Colleen Haggerty

Crawlspace Doctor installed insulation, a French drain, sump pump, dehumidifier and a vapor barrier in our crawlspace. They showed up when they said they would, got done when they said that they would and hauled off all debris. It was a very good experience and we would not hesitate to use them again.

Robert and Mary Horneker

We were very pleased with Chris Crow and his detailed estimate. It seemed very fair. He finished what he had promised and found other problems such as termites had eaten the 2.4's and would need replacing. We were very grateful that they did not just 'do the job they came for' and let it go. We had them to repair the 2.4's and they did an excellent job. The employees that were on the job every day were very diligent and energetic. The whole experience was very pleasant. I would recommend the CrawlSpace Doctor to anyone who had a problem of this sort.
