The reason you’d be searching for that particular term is that you’re having a problem with your basement waterproofing, or things have puddled up, and you need an expert in crawl space repair. You are definitely in the right place for those problems! Not a lot of people know that there’s not supposed to be standing water in your basement or crawl space, they take it as a fact when dealing with the climate and soil here in the beautiful Piedmont. We’re going to fix that.
Clay Soil + Water = Mess
One part of the problem is our soil. In this area, the predominant soil is clay soil or utensils, and these are generally acidic soils of low productive value. With amendments, as any local gardener of note can tell you, they can be super productive. Why? Good soil plus water – which doesn’t drain well in clay soils – means that water-intensive crops can thrive. Unfortunately, what it means for some homeowners is that water in your basement is not an indoor swimming pool – it’s an insurance claim, and it’s time to call Dry Otter Waterproofing.
Quick Bucks and Long-Term Problems
Builders often do not grade their residential lots properly, and new construction can change the drainage footprint of a whole neighborhood. Your crawlspace and basement might have been bone dry for years, but a change like new construction or your next-door neighbor’s landscaping can change that.
