How Does a Sump Pump Fix Crawlspace Water Problems?
To fix your crawlspace groundwater problem, Virginia Foundation Solutions can install a drainage system that incorporates a sump pump with interior drainage. Usually, we install drainage around the entire perimeter of your crawlspace. We use four-inch perforated pipe covered by a filter sock, surrounded by crushed stone that filters out and sediment or debris. This perimeter drainage is used in combination with a sump pump that pumps the water out of your crawlspace and to a discharge line. Often, our customers choose to install a bubbler drain at the end of this discharge line, so that their waterproofing system remains discrete. To determine the best solution for your crawlspace drainage problem, contact us to schedule a free, no-obligation inspection with one of our expert design specialists.

Your Crawlspace: The Most Important Room in Your Home
Your crawlspace is arguably the most important space in your home. It contains the support for the entire structure, about 50% of the breathing air that will enter your home, the wires, cables, plumbing, ductwork, and often HVAC systems that make your entire home function properly. Yet, it is commonly the most ignored space in the house. When overlooked, the crawlspace becomes an environment for humidity and moisture, which causes mold growth and wood rot. This mold and rot compromise the structural integrity of the wood framing system which leads to cracks in your drywall, uneven floors and doors, and a variety of other problems. Moisture in the crawlspace also contributes to the damage of insulation causing higher energy bills, and provides the perfect living conditions for pests, rodents, and snakes.
