Comprehensive Crawl Space Drainage in Atlanta, GA
If your home in the Atlanta, Georgia, area is in need of crawl space drainage, turn to the professionals at Engineered Solutions of Georgia. Our experienced staff is qualified to inspect your home and determine if our crawl space drainage and encapsulation service is right for you. When there is water in your crawl space, you don’t have time to waste. Standing water can be disastrous to a home and quickly begin to deteriorate building materials.
The first step in our crawl space drainage process is for our team to inspect the area to find leaks as well as signs of previous water damage. This helps us better understand where the water is coming from and ensure that our repair plan is comprehensive. In some cases, water intrusion is the result of obvious problems like cracks in the walls, but in many instances, water enters the home through the foundation itself, which is more difficult to identify. As part of this inspection, we also look for signs of fungal growth in the joists to be sure that when we seal your crawl space, we’re not also sealing in fungus.
Once the inspection is done, we’ll walk you through the crawl space drainage process for your Atlanta, GA, home to help you understand your next steps. This might entail putting you in touch with local companies that we know and trust to handle any mold remediation, water extraction, and structural drying before we can begin work sealing the crawl space and preventing future flooding problems.
Our encapsulation process entails:
- The installation of a drainage system that collects any water that seeps through the foundation in order to re-route it away from the home.
- Addressing any cracks or foundation problems that may allow water to enter the crawl space – this might entail comprehensive foundation repair or something as simple as the application of polyurethane sealant.
- The installation of a dehumidifier to help control humidity in the crawl space once it’s sealed.
