If there are any cracks, crevices, or openings inside of the basement environment, excessive humidity will eventually be able to get inside and cause problems. This is a common basement waterproofing issue we see in homes in our area. It is important to mention that one of the main ways in which this moisture-filled air gets into the home is through weak seals in the windows. After it gets inside, it doesn't just make your entire home feel uncomfortable, but it can also trigger serious structural damage. This includes damage to wooden materials, such as floor joists, posts, and beams that help to support the weight of the home. When these start to rot, it can attract unwanted critters, including termites, roaches, mosquitoes, rats, mice, snakes, and more.
Additionally, the presence of moisture in the air can lead to the growth of dangerous mold and bacteria. It grows on walls, floors, boxes, and on various types of surfaces, and it can be seen as a dark green or black fungus. Sometimes, it may even have a "fuzzy" appearance. It will make your home smell very musty, and it can lead to a variety of serious health problems, including: asthma attacks, coughing, sneezing, skin rashes, eye irritation, cold/flu-like symptoms, headaches, and severe fatigue.
Don Kennedy and Sons can install one of these devices to help with controlling the levels beneath your home. Additionally, it is recommended that you get the proper waterproofing system installed to prevent seepage from getting inside via cracks or through the cove joint (where the wall and floor meet).

Mrs. Kennedy, Professional! That is all I can say. For over thirty years the crawl space at 7703 Foxfire Drive contained an ever deteriorating vapor barrier, and periodic work by various contractors in that space did not enhance its beauty or vapor barrier security. It was a moisture jar waiting to ...

Received estimate to raise cracked driveway. While consult was going on, the rep told me I was having draining issues in the yard that would cause issues in the future.
