FRENCHDRAINAGE 300x225French Drainage Systems – This type of drainage system creates a barrier drain on the interior or exterior of the foundation and diverts water to an exit point or sump pump system. This solution diverts unwanted water through an underground drainage system which consists of a drain pipe tunneling through a sloped trench which is then covered with gravel. This way, water can be drawn away from foundation to a sump pump system or exit point.

Once water is diverted, it can be sent to a sump pump which will further remove it safely. Essentially, this solution consists of an enclosed storage area for the water with a pipe that extends from that water to an exit point; the water is safely removed from the building through that pipe.

DivertersCrawlspace & Basement Diverter Installation in Raleigh– These establish and maintain open water pathways to direct all water into a drainage system, this system helps relieve hydrostatic pressure by allowing water flow against basement and crawlspace foundation walls. Rain naturally sinks into the ground, meaning that water will inevitably come into contact with a building’s foundation. Diverters control this contact by creating a pathway for the water toward a drainage system when it applies pressure to the foundation.

SantafedehumidifyersDehumidifiers Installation – These units act as an air system that intakes the moisture in the area and converts it into water so it can be discharged away from the foundation. They reduce the humidity levels in areas where installed. High humidity levels are the number 1 factor for mold growth. Humidity is the largest contributor to mold growth. When water enters an area through the foundation, the moisture must quickly be eliminated or mold might begin growing. Getting a dehumidifier installed in your basement or crawlspace  will immediately collect the moisture and ensure it doesn’t develop into a problem.

ExteriorrubbermembrainesExterior Rubber Membranes – Drainage System ‘French drainage systems” this type of drainage system creates a barrier drain on the interior or exterior of the foundation and diverts water to an exit point or sump pump system. To avoid any water intrusion into the foundation, exterior rubber membranes can be applied around the perimeter of the building below ground level. These will prevent water from entering through any cracks or weak points.

ExteriorrubbercoatingExterior Rubber Coating – Drainage System ‘French drainage systems” this type of drainage system creates a barrier drain on the interior or exterior of the foundation and diverts water to an exit point or sump pump system. Like membranes, rubber coating seals the foundation to prevent water intrusion. Coating can be applied much like paint, creating an almost flush layer of water protection.

LandscapedrainageLandscape Drainage – Special grates and drains are installed on grade to reduce water from draining to the structure. Water naturally flows downhill and pools when it encounters a structure in its way. By installing drains and grates on a grade, landscape drainage utilizes this physical principle to prevent water from reaching a building at all.

VaporbarrierVapor/Moisture Barrier – A 12-20 Mil Plastic barrier is installed on ground surface to reduce moisture from rising into the wood and structure. All our vapor barriers are installed per code and are sealed at the seams and anchored to the soil surfaces. A plastic barrier can be installed on the interior of a structure if moisture can’t be prevented from entering. This barrier will ensure that the moisture never materializes into mold or causes damage to the structure itself.
