Crawl Space Repair & Waterproofing
What is a crawl space? A crawl space is below the first floor of a home, but is not big enough to be classified as a basement. Typically there is only enough room to crawl rather than stand.
More and more homes are being built with crawl spaces and they are quite common in Missouri. Many essential house features, including foundation piers and additional storage, are located in crawl spaces which makes it essential to maintain and keep dry and waterproof.
Signs Your Crawl Space Needs Waterproofing
- You may notice the floor directly above the crawl space to be sagging, this is a sign of damage or excessive moisture.
- Be on the lookout for dampness or standing water.
- Watch for mold and notice if there is a musty smell to your crawl space.

The On Footer Drain System catches water coming off the wall.
The Footer Depth Drain System uses a drip ledge to catch water from the wall and a multi-flow tile backfilled with rock that runs along the footer. This prevents both hydraulic water from coming in and catches water coming off the wall. Learn more about our drain systems here.
A Vapor Barrier is a poly liner used to encapsulate the space. It is attached to the walls, floor, and supporting columns to seal the area. This will prevent and treat moisture content and mold. Learn more about our vapor barrier solutions here.
