Location: Brevard, NC

Why did the customer contact us?

Helen had water coming into the crawl space but didn't know where it was coming from. She needed someone professional to investigate and solve the issue.

Solutions provided:

Basement & Radon Solutions, BRS Pros installed a dewatering system due to the water intrusion in the crawlspace. The specific system they went with was a Hydra-Channel drainage system. This system is engineered designed and is proven to remove storm water up to 70% faster than a traditional French Drain. The Hydra-Channel system does carry a five year transferable warranty to prevent water on top of the ground liner. The Hydra-Channel was installed along the full interior perimeter of the crawlspace foundation and connected to a sump pump located in the right front corner of the crawlspace. Our sump pump package is completely sealed, as to not let moisture get back into the crawlspace, and has a permanent drainage system included. Our electrician was also able to wire a direct outlet for the sump pump. After the drainage system was installed our crew laid down a 9-mil white reinforced moisture barrier on the ground. The liner was mechanically fastened to stay in place. This liner will control moisture vapor and dampness from the ground. Our woven ground and wall liners are antibacterial, meaning mold and other organic growth will not grow to the liner. The crawlspace was also made RADON READY. This means that a radon piping system installed below the ground liner. This way if in the future a Radon Mitigation System is needed the homeowner will not have to cut the new plastic to install the piping. Helen now has a full water control system and moisture barrier to control both the humidity and water intrusion into her crawlspace. It was a pleasure helping Helen make her home happy, healthy, and safe!
