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.
Identifying Crawl Space Drainage Needs
Be aware of these signs that your crawl space may be suffering from inadequate drainage:
- Persistent musty smells emanating from the crawl space
- Increased humidity levels inside your home
- Rising energy bills
- Evidence of mold or mildew
- Water accumulation, dampness, or condensation
- Leakage near vents or along the crawl space perimeter
- Infestations of insects or pests
- Signs of wood rot or structural damage
- Uneven or sagging floors
These indicators highlight moisture issues that, if neglected, can lead to more severe problems.
The Importance of Crawl Space Waterproofing
Crawl space waterproofing is vital for the longevity and safety of your home. Overlooking drainage problems allows for more extensive water damage over time. Tar Heel Basement Systems advises against DIY solutions for crawl space inspection or drainage due to the complexity and potential risk involved. If you observe any of the signs, it’s critical to consult our crawl space encapsulation experts for an in-depth inspection and professional installation.
Postponing the implementation of solutions like CrawlDrain™ can escalate damage and repair costs.

Our waterproofing approach is integral to our comprehensive home care strategy, ensuring each part of your home remains safe, dry, and healthy. Our encapsulation system, inclusive of CrawlDrain™, guarantees thorough moisture control.
