Mold can have horrible effects on your health and the health of loved ones, not to mention your house. Not only can mold grow on the dark damp surfaces of your crawl space but it can also travel upward into your house Contaminating the air you breathe.


Controlling your environment is key. Eliminate excessive moisture and high humidity with a full Encapsulation.

The site of dry rot also known as brown rot can send home owners into a full panic, and for good reason. Often hidden from view dry rot is the unseen destroyer of many homes and businesses and once it starts growing it spreads rapidly. Brown rot often appears dry on the wood Surface but goes to work breaking down the cellulose in the woods structure. This causes the wood to shrink, turn dark brown in color and break into cube shaped pieces called cubical fracture, deteriorating wooden support beams and posts, rotting floors, and ceiling joist that can cost you tens of thousands of dollars in damages.


Wood that is damaged with dry rot will have to be replaced so PREVENTION is key. Solutions to prevent include treating wood with boric acid and sealing off any access for moisture such as any leaks and closing vents. A full Encapsulation with a self draining dehumidifier will do the trick. 


Standing water is something every homeowner fears to find. Not only can it causes mold and dry rot but can also attract pests such as cockroaches, termites, ants and rodents that find their way into your home, not to mention that musty smell that lingers.

Humidity, can cause many problems in the home wether you have a basement or crawl space.

Water Drainage

There’s a whole list of things that can lead to your foundation leaking. It could be anything from improper back-filling to as simple as your downspouts not drawing far enough away from your foundation. A leaking foundation is a major issue and needs to be treated as one. Your crawlspace holding water increases the chances or settling and cracking your foundation and other problems such as damage to piers and sub flooring and can create enough moisture to grow mold and compromise your air quality. Our solution for leaky crawlspace is to basically install a industry created French drainage system inside the crawlspace. While exterior French drains work they let exposed to lots of debris like leaves, sticks, clay, etc. that will clog them and send the water straight to your foundation and under your house. By placing the drainage system under the house we’re able to use the foundation as a filter for the drain. A trench if dug out around the footer and a corrugated pipe with a filter sleeve is placed in the trench that will catch and divert the water to a sump pump basin in a low point of the crawlspace which is then discharged out and away from the home.

While your foundation may not leak at the moment, eventually water may find its way in. If you have downspouts that do not drain away from your foundation, it will slowly seep into the ground which could leach to your foundation or cause bad settling of your home. At North Georgia Waterproofing we address all of these issues - from extending and burying down spouts to trenching and installing catch basins and drainage pipes, and even installing drains in concrete - all of these are simple and proven to be very affective for your home and property.
