Waterproofing a Crawl Space

If your foundation area is wet, a check-up will try to find out what is allowing rain water to leak into it.

The waterproofing strategy they undertake with your property may not entail any real work inside your house at all. Many homeowners are concerned they have to work on their basement walls, but that’s not always the case.

In certain cases almost all of the work is centered just on the yard and soil grading around the house.

Some property owners notice that a piece of their concrete walkway, patio, driveway or garage has sunken a bit through the years.

If this occurred at your property, they can normally correct it by a process known as mud jacking or slab jacking.

In order to elevate your slab, they push a thick compound underneath the area of the sunken slab. This filler expands, hardens and forces your concrete up to the perfect height.

Your walkway, patio or driveway will look better after each of the pieces are the same height, and nobody is going to be tripping on the uneven edges any longer either.

Why Is This Happening to My Property?

Beneath your house, driveway and yard, the soil is progressively changing.

It swells and gets smaller because of moisture, shifts in temperature and other factors.

Example of a house that is seeping down in the topsoilThis small, but nonstop movement can cause the building above the soil to move too.

Parts of the foundation might slide down or up or sideways.

The shifting is small, but even small motions, over time, may result in an issue with the building itself.

Even while you can’t control the weather, having your house located on a yard which has lousy drainage and poor grading could be top reasons in whether or not you develop a nasty structure situation at your home.

Simply installing working rain gutters will help keep excessive rain water away from your home. It’s a very easy repair that can have a big impact.

One of the leading variables that impact this situation coming about is something that the property owner can’t influence.

It’s the absorbency of the soil and ground that his house is constructed on.

Soil that will take in and soak up a lot of water will expand more than soil that doesn’t retain water well.

We are fairly fortunate here in the suburbs near the water, much of the soil under our houses is not very absorbent, when compared with soils in other parts of the state.

One more secondary element could be the presence of a substantial tree which is way too near to your house.

During a dry and hot period, a big tree’s long roots can pull all the available moisture out of the ground around it.

And large roots can also place stress against your home’s structure too.

As the years go by, environmental forces working on your building foundation can cause a couple of small cracks.

Sometimes small cracks stay smaller sized; other times they get large.

Bigger splits allow in moisture and tiny bugs.

And moisture and humidity under your house isn’t a good thing.

Your basement foundation supports the complete building. The floors, walls, and even the roof all depend on it.
