It isn’t uncommon to find a sump pump and a battery backup system installed in a basement. However, not many homeowners with crawlspaces will consider having a sump pump installed.
A wet or damp crawlspace is more than just an annoyance. It can lead to serious structural damage, mold, and mildew. And, once water enters your crawlspace, it can be difficult to remove. That’s why crawlspace waterproofing is so important.
Moisture in the crawlspace can be due to occurrences such as floodwater, a burst water pipe, or leaks in the foundation which permit water to seep in from the surrounding soil.
Water damage is one of the biggest concerns for homeowners. On average, a claim due to house water damage costs insurance companies approximately $11000, and about 25 percent of home insurance claims are attributed to water damage.
