Groundwater levels differ according to the
amount of rain and snow received. These
fluctuating levels are the crux of crawl space
moisture problems. If the groundwater level
remains near the crawl space grade, water levels
can range from complete flooding to smaller
areas of standing water.
spaces can remain moist and damp without
appearing muddy or wet due to a number of
factors. The enclosed environment of the
subsurface soil base, open-earth evaporation,
elevation, topography, and exterior perimeter
drainage, all contribute to the crawl space
becoming very susceptible to mold, mildew,
fungus, insect infestations, wildlife shelter,
and other micro organisms.
moisture can often be controlled with the
installation of a full interior perimeter
drainage system. Installing a drainage
system is accepted as a standard repair
option to many crawl space issues.
Usually a perforated, corrugated flex drain
tile packed in aggregate is installed along
the perimeter of the interior walls. The
drain tile channels groundwater to a
deep-set sump basin with an attached sump
pump. Aggregate is packed in the basin and
perforated for effective drainage. Next, the
sump pump draws water through a discharge
line connected underground to an in-ground
You can't go wrong with our services as long as rain continues to fall in the lower mainland!
Our systems do not allow any water getting past the
dimpled membrane to fall freely to the drain tile
through the air gap section, keeping water away from
your foundation and preventing hydrostatic water
pressure against your walls.
This same air gap allows
the foundation to "breathe" and makes your whole home
