Crawlspace Waterproofing

The condition of your crawl space greatly influences the health and safety of your home. A wet crawl space can easily be damaged by mold, termites, and wood rot. Left untreated, a wet crawl space can quickly become a serious health hazard and an enormous financial burden on your home. Fortunately, wet crawl space problems can be eliminated by installing an effective waterproofing system.

Basement Waterproofing

Basement waterproofing saves your home from damage caused by water, mold and potential structure failure. It cuts out musty odors and gives you a safe place for living and/or storage. A properly waterproofed basement also helps prevent a variety of health problems caused by poor air quality and makes sure that your family is safe and comfortable.

Too many basement remodeling projects happen before a home is properly waterproofed, which can lead to big problems and expenses down the road. Starting with a dry, healthy environment will save you problems later, increase the value of your home and protect your investment.

A waterproofing system is a collection of products that work together to keep water out of your basement. The products are installed in a specific order and the system functions as an integrated whole. 

At Top Dog, our crews of waterproofers are experienced, well-trained professionals who work in basements and crawl spaces every day. Our experts have seen it all, and we know just what it takes to keep your basement dry all the time.
