OUR CHATTANOOGA CRAWL SPACE SOLUTIONS
In order to provide quality repair, insulation, and crawl space drainage services in Chattanooga, we use only the best products in the industry.
If you experience excessive moisture in your crawl space on a regular basis, crawl space encapsulation or the installation of a vapor barrier or liner system for your Chattanooga home can make a huge difference. We use products manufactured by Nash Distribution, a leading supplier of waterproofing products. Depending on the humidity level and severity of water intrusion, our crawl space liner experts in Chattanooga will install a vapor barrier or a reinforced encapsulation liner.
Traditionally, French drain systems, which use gravel, have been used to manage water drainage. American Foundation & Waterproofing partners with NDS, a top water management systems distributor, to provide a system that offers a 30% better flow rate than traditional systems. Our Chattanooga crawl space drainage team uses the EZ Flow system from NDS, which uses a poly-rock aggregate that can work efficiently for more than 100 years!
Many homeowners don’t think of insulating their crawl space as a top priority. However, the benefits can really add up. Crawl space insulation can increase energy efficiency, improve indoor air quality, and deter unwanted pests. An excellent choice for crawl space insulation is Supportworks SilverGlo Rigid Foam Board Insulation, which stands up to moisture that can damage traditional insulation materials. Our crawl space insulation team in Chattanooga trusts this product to provide our clients with long-lasting protection for their crawl space environment.
Excessive moisture in the crawl space can lead to water damage, which can cause the floor joists to fail, in turn causing sagging or sloping of the main floors in your home. The solution to this is placing crawl space stabilizers beneath the affected joists. Our Chattanooga crawl space solution experts use SmartJack crawl space stabilizers, manufactured by Supportworks. These joist stabilizers are heavy-duty, galvanized steel jacks that are zinc-plated and adjustable. Not only can they prevent further sagging, but their application can also level your main floors.
A sump pump is a critical component of crawl space waterproofing. Through the use of an industrial-grade sump pump, excess water can be pumped out of your crawl space and directed safely away from your house to keep the crawl space dry and prevent further damage. We trust the PHCC Pro Series sump pump by Glentronics, which effectively removes high volumes of water and protects the crawl space from water damage.
There are many benefits to installing a dehumidifier in your crawl space. A damp environment encourages the growth of mold and mildew, and pests are attracted to damp spaces. Controlled humidity in the crawl space also supports better air quality within your home, with fewer allergens and airborne contaminants. We install Aprilaire dehumidifiers, which provide a self-sustaining, whole-house system that will keep your crawl space dry and your indoor air quality much healthier.
