High-Quality Crawlspace Waterproofing Edwardsville, IL
Lovell Basement Solutions specializes in waterproofing services for homes throughout Edwardsville, IL. One of the most common places for water damage to occur is your crawlspace; these spaces are unconditioned, meaning they are not properly sealed off to be considered livable spaces. Many residential crawlspaces are unfinished and have slab foundations that are not suitable for moisture and wet weather. Unfortunately, this means crawlspaces are one of the most common areas to become flooded or accrue mold without protective techniques. Our team offers high-quality products and techniques to waterproof your crawlspaces for long-term safety and moisture prevention. Contact us today for a free estimate and our lifetime warranties.
Using the latest techniques, we can complete indoor waterproofing of your crawlspace without digging or working on the outside. Our experts install a thick liner system to prevent water from penetrating through the ground and damaging your electric and plumbing systems. Not only do our waterproofing liners stop water penetration, but they also block 99% of radon – a cancerous gas lurking in the Earth. These two properties together create a safe and functional crawl space with no musky smell.
If your crawlspace lacks the foundational security it requires to keep your home safe, contact Lovell Basement Solutions in Edwardsville, IL. Our crawlspace waterproofing provides several benefits that are essential for long-term protection.
Crawlspace encapsulation is a type of waterproofing treatment that includes lining your crawlspace’s flooring and walls with a thick polyethylene liner to seal any cracks or moisture spots. By encapsulating your crawlspace, you can prevent humidity, water damage, pests, and loss of energy from your HVAC units.
Our experts at Lovell Basement Solutions offer affordable crawlspace encapsulation to improve the living conditions of your home while preventing damage to your foundation that can impact your home’s safety. Not only will encapsulation protect your crawlspace year-round, but it will also boost the value of your home if you are ever planning on selling your property.
