Basement Waterproofing

It’s easy to do, but forgetting your crawl space can have plenty of negative consequences for the rest of your home from poor air quality to high energy bills.

Angie's Answers

Mold in a basement is a common problem. My company helps people with this every day. Some of the answers you received were helpful but not all the information is correct. First, you need to eliminate the two main ingrediants that mold needs to survive. The first one is water intrusion. This is a must. I am assuming you have no water intrusion as you make no mention. The second componant that needs to be eliminated is moisture. Moisture is also humidity. Basements need to be kept airtight in the summer months. Some folks have posted that you need air flow in your basement. Nothing could be furthur from the truth. When you open any windows for example, not one micron of air goes out of the basement, Warm humid air is sucked into the basement. Houses suck air into the basement and it meets the cool surfaces and skyrockets humidity. The windows must be kept closed and a dehumidification device installed to ensure humidity stays below 60% humidity. The dehumidifier should be energy star rated and purchasing a seperate humidity guage is a must to monitor the unit's progress. We like to keep our customer's basements at 50% humidity. This eliminates the smell that is active mold spore growth. Once the water and humidity is brought under control. Remove the organic materials that have mold on them. Walls, sheetrock and studs that have been affected. Follow the advice of previous posts as you must ensure that you do not affect the rest of the home. Once removed, install new walls using as much inorganic material as possible. We also install vapor barrier over the walls and seal the floors to stopwater vapor transmission into the basement. Poly plastic is not a acceptable vapor barrier. It is not "zero-perm" and will still allow moisture transmission. It will also crack and break into pieces over the years. A PVC liner rated "zero-perm" is the correct product in this application. Depending how large the basement is and if it is sectioned off will determine the dehumidifier strength. We use the Santa Fe line of dehidifiers as they are super energy efficiant and work like a dehumidifier on steriods. I hope this helps and I wish you the best in Basement Health!
?

Where is the home located, what is the exterior wall construction and type, how is the space heated?

 

It could be a whole host of different scenarios that would generate that result.  It is nearly impossible to tell but I would say that most basement moisture problems are a result of bulk moisture intrusion or condensation issues. 

 

Given the deep and hard winter this year, it could be a condensation issue that hadn't previously been shown.

Basement Waterproofing reviews in Raleigh

I had quotes to encapsulate my crawl space that were three times what
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
actually charged me. I had a dampness problem and encapsulating was the best long term solution. His people arrived on time and completed the job within five days. A new vent had to be installed on my HVAC system. The new vent threw off the air flow balance in the downstairs portion of my house.. I finally had to personally call the HVAC person to get him out to correct it. He did not respond to the email sent to him from Triangle asking him to contact me to correct the problem. However, once I called, he came the same day and did an excellent job in correcting the problem.
Overall I had a very good experience with

and

. They were honest and responsive to my questions. I plan to pay for the yearly maintenance plan they offer to continue the guarantee after the one year warranty.

Through your website, we settled on December 16th between 9:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. to complete the job. By 11:00 a.m. when no one showed or called, I called and spoke with
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He checked the schedule and was showing an afternoon time. I was not very happy as I had arranged my day to be at home in the morning. He said that he would offer a 10% discount for my trouble and that someone would be out around 2:00 p.m. At about 2:10 p.m.
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
arrived and informed me that the installer had been delayed and that he was going to do the job himself and because of the inconvenience of the day, he was not going to charge me the additional $221.00. Needless to say I was speechless. Not only did he turn a negative into a positive, he did a great job.

It was good. They were not able to do the whole thing because they could not access the entire crawl space. They were responsive. They got the job done in about one hour. The workers were all good to deal with.

Prior to contacing Shamrock, I had interfaced with another company and ended up with a very unsatisfactory customer service experience. I am glad that I was able to find Shamrock. This is the company to use.

I always had a lot water on my property after a good rain and no where for it to drain. The standing water seeped into the house and over the years damaged the flooring, which I replaced twice so far. I have to run a dehumidifier 24 hrs a day to prevent moisture damage. I have owned this property for over 25 years and had sought the help of many professionals. The city inspectors from the storm water drainage department in
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out to try to problem solve but because my home is lower than the street and the natural drainage path was on private property, they could not help.
The owner of Vortex came out and assessed the storm water flow from the roof, gutters and downspouts, computing the volume of water and the grade and designed a plan to handle the water and direct it off the property. All the downspouts were tied together with underground PVC type drain pipes on a grade leading down to the natural drain area. With the dirt left over they raked and graded the surface so that water would runoff into a drainage ditch where it would perk and they covered the ditch with peoples. They made a berm to prevent the back flow of water and keep it off my property once and for all. The installation started on time and progressed as planned and finished on time. we've been through a few downpours, the owner came out to check that everything was working well. I think this is the final solution. I'm very happy with the design and quality of the work. I would highly recommend this company for all your drainage solutions.

Good job. First fellow came out and did the mold treatment. Wow is that knarly. He had the full contam suit on. Scrubbed all the joists with a solution. Took much of a day to apply.
Next a day a pair of fellows removed debris, then put down 20-mil
Raleigh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
on ground and around block supports, and a 1.5in insulation board insulation on the walls, and filled in the vents to the outside. Its really pretty down there now.
My only knit is that I wish they hand more branding on their vehicles; two different crews and then the original job-quoter fellow; and it would have been nice if they had something with some identification like most of the other vendors we have had out.
A couple follow up issues were handled promptly. We really like results and would use them for future work.
