When trying to sell a home, and the word "mold" is brought into the conversation, a buyer's red flags go up! In this particular home, mold was found in the crawlspace during the home inspection process and they called us out to encapsulate the crawlspace and put in a custom crawlspace door! We helped solve the mold problem and created a usable space for the hopeful new homeowners.
What is the main difference between a basement and a crawlspace? The main difference is ceiling height!
Would you ever leave the door to your basement open in the cold winter or hot summer? Hopefully not! Then why would you leave your crawlspace left open?
The energy savings of sealing off the crawlspace vents and doors is huge! Now cold air in the winter months and humid air in the summer months can not enter the space to add moisture in this home's crawlspace.
Along with helping this homeowner with waterproofing and drainage issues, AquaGuard also help this crawlspace’s structural support. Smart Jacks and Smart Jack footings were installed to help ensure this crawlspace would not cave in. Smart Jacks are great stabilizing posts and one of AquaGuard’s most common structural floor systems. Not only can these posts help with crawlspace issues, but they can also be used in basements with structural problems.

Ron, of Dacula, GA, began noticing cracks in the walls of his basement which were a safety concern. Cracks in concrete grow worse over time and will continue to be a safety hazard and cause leaking if it is not fixed. When looking for a solution to his problem, he found AquaGuard and gave them a call.
AquaGuard installed a five-year crack injection which solved his leaking problem. The injection only took a day to install and now Ron can sleep easy knowing he doesn’t have to worry about leaking walls.
Kathy, of Dacula, GA, realized that she needed a way to remedy water damage in her basement. When searching for a solution, she called AquaGuard to see what options she had to fix her situation.
A SaniDry condensate Pump was installed in her basement to dry it out. Then, a downspout extension was put in place to direct the water from her basement out of the house and away from the foundations. In total, the project only took one day.
Yvonne, of Dacula, GA, became concerned when she noticed water coming in at the base of the wall of her basement whenever it rained heavily. After conferring with AquaGuard associates, they devised a plan to resolve the water leakage.
AquaGuard installed the award -winning WaterGuard System to drain the water from the basement. The WaterGuard System is unique because its shape aids in preventing clogs that can occur drains. BrightWall panels were then installed to keep the walls looking like new for years to come with little maintenance. A Gravity Exit discharge line was installed to direct the water out of the house and ensure that it does not flood again.
The entirety of the project took two days. The WaterGuard port and the Gravity Exit will make sure that Yvonne doesn’t have to worry about her walls leaking when it rains, and the new walls give her basement a fresh, new start.
Felicia, of Dacula, GA, noticed that there were cracks in the concrete floors and walls of her basement. When they began to consistently get larger and the floor began to grow more uneven, she became concerned. When looking for a solution to her problem, she called AquaGuard.
A five-year crack injection was placed in the walls and floors of her basement, ensuring that the cracks would no longer be a problem. Then they put slab piers under the concrete floor to distribute the weight of the concrete.
The project took one day to install. The piers will make sure that Felicia does not have to worry about her floor becoming uneven or cracked again.
Bill, of Dacula, GA, noticed that there was water coming in around a pipe in one of his walls. Since he was not sure of the cause or how to fix it, he called AquaGuard to help him resolve the problem. They came back with a plan.
A waterline pipe penetration was poured through the pipe in the wall, followed by a sewerline pipe penetration that was also poured through the wall. Both of these provided a direct path for the water to leak through. A downspout extension was then used to direct the flow of the pipe into the yard and away from the foundation of the building.
The project took only a day to complete and now Bill rests easy knowing his pipe will securely do what it is supposed to.
