There are several signs that indicate a waterproofing system may be necessary in your crawl space. One obvious sign is standing water on the crawl space floor. If the crawl space has a dirt floor, wet soil can also indicate that a waterproofing system should be installed.
Crawl space waterproofing can be completed separately or as part of crawl space encapsulation. Whichever option you choose, you’re sure to get the best performance and value from Ohio Basement Systems.

Products that promote good drainage. Installed beneath the vapor barrier, dimpled plastic drainage matting promotes good drainage along the crawl space floor. CrawlDrain™ perimeter drain pipe collects water from floor and wall leakage, transporting it to a crawl space sump pump. This photo also shows ExTremeBloc™ wall insulation.
What features are included in a crawl space waterproofing system?
If your crawl space needs waterproofing, the complete system is likely to include some or all of the crawl space repair solutions described below:
- Perimeter drains. CrawlDrain™ perimeter drain pipe is designed to capture crawl space wall and floor seepage.
- Drainage matting. This dimpled plastic sheet material promotes good drainage over the entire crawl space floor.
- Sump pump. Ohio Basement Systems provides the best-performing sump pump systems available, including battery backup models that keep working even when the power goes out.
- Dehumidifier. A heavy-duty dehumidifier from Basement Systems will dry out a damp crawl space and automatically maintain a pre-set humidity level. By controlling crawl space humidity, you create conditions that are hostile to mold and mildew.
