Crawl Space Waterproofing in Florida
Is water leaking into your crawl space? Concerned about your basement?

Complete crawl space waterproofing systems
A complete, effective waterproofing system will include several components.
A sump pump automatically pumps collected water from your basement or crawl space to the exterior of your house. L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc. can install a sump pump if your crawl space doesn’t already have one. For best protection, we use Basement Systems™ sump pump systems, an outstanding product that gives our clients great results and clean areas. The sump pump comes with battery backup, ensuring that your waterproofing system will keep working even when the power goes out.
Perimeter drainage system
To promote good drainage along the crawl space floor, we recommend installing our innovative drainage matting. This dimpled plastic sheet is especially important to use in a dirt-floored crawl space.
SmartPipe™ drainage system
The patented SmartPipe™ drainage system is designed for installation against crawl space walls. Thanks to its unique profile and integral filter fabric protection, SmartPipe™ will never clog or fail to capture wall and floor seepage.
This perimeter drainage system is connected to the crawl space sump pump.
We install the SaniDry® crawl space dehumidifier for the complete crawl space waterproofing solution. A crawl space dehumidifier isn’t required in all cases, but one may be necessary in a large crawl space or a crawl space that has been wet for a long time.
An ENERGY STAR® SaniDry™ dehumidifier is designed to easily handle the low temperatures and harsh crawl space conditions that can overwhelm standard appliance store models.
Crawl space encapsulation
Waterproofing is often combined with crawl space encapsulation. The best time to install a crawl space waterproofing system is when the crawl space is being sealed or encapsulated.
The air and vapor barrier used in the encapsulation process prevents moist exterior air from entering the crawl space and condensing on cool crawl space surfaces.
A waterproofing system will capture water that seeps through crawl space walls and floor areas, transporting this water to a sump pump for automatic ejection to the exterior.
