Photo Album: Winston Salem, NC- Basement Crawl Space Combo Permanently Waterproofed

Album Description

This "Ardmore-style" basement was having major water issues. The concrete slab in the basement would continuously allow moisture to push through the block walls and floor when it rained. The exposed dirt that sits on top of the knee wall released vapor into the air, making the space extremely damp. All of this moisture below the home was causing mold growth and wood rot.

Tar Heel Basement Systems installed a permanent waterproofing system, BasementGutter, to control the water entering the basement. Our patented 20mil. vapor barrier, CrawlSeal, completely sealed the remainder of the space. The vents were sealed and a commercial-grade dehumidifier was installed to control the humidity levels in the basement-crawl space. This Winston Salem, NC homeowner can now look forward to a dry, mold-free basement.
