Moisture buildup in crawl spaces is a common yet often overlooked issue that can cause mold, structural damage, and unwanted odors. Addressing this problem effectively is crucial for the health of your home. Tar Heel Basement Systems, serving various communities across North Carolina, offers a specialized solution with the AquaStop™ CrawlDrain™ crawl space drainage system. 

As North Carolina’s trusted experts in crawl space encapsulation, we deliver a comprehensive approach to resolve existing water problems and prevent future issues. Implementing the CrawlDrain™ system along with professional waterproofing ensures a permanent fix to moisture-related challenges. 

In this article, you will discover the benefits of this advanced system and how it plays a crucial role in protecting your home. 

The Innovation of CrawlDrain™ 

CrawlDrain™ is a revolutionary drainage solution engineered for crawl spaces. It features a 4-inch corrugated, perforated pipe encapsulated in a filtration silt sock. During installation, CrawlDrain™ is carefully placed in trenches within the crawl space, covered by gravel, to provide an effective filtration mechanism. This setup ensures unobstructed groundwater flow towards a sump pump system. 

CrawlDrain™ isn’t merely a product; it’s a vital component of a comprehensive approach to home health. Working in synergy with crawl space encapsulation, insulation, and dehumidification, CrawlDrain™ plays an essential role in preserving your home’s structural integrity by managing crawl space moisture. Opting for CrawlDrain™ is a wise investment for any homeowner, offering lasting benefits and peace of mind.
