FOUNDATION WATER-PROOFINGStop biological growth, groundwater seepage, and cracked or unlevel foundations by waterproofing your home today!

Foundation waterproofing is the process of preventing water intrusion, from subtle water seepage to flooding when the ground is over-saturated. We specialize in designing waterproofing systems to fit the individual needs of a home. A good portion of our wet basement solutions involve sealing foundation wall cracks in poured concrete foundations (poured concrete is the most common type of foundation in the Twin Ports and surrounding area). Cracks are readily visible in an unfinished basement; leaking cracks leave water stains on the foundation wall, etc. 

When homeowners think of home maintenance, few think of their basement area. Whether a older home or new construction, a basement space can be a very usable and productive room in for the entire family. Like any other rooms, basements must have some updates and maintenance to ensure optimal safety and usability in the home. Many homes in inclement weather areas choose to make coat their basement in a strong waterproof coating.

The key to waterproofing your wet basement starts with properly diagnosing the source of the problem. Minnesota Spray Foam and Coatings offers a free consultation and estimate by a trained and experienced basement advisor as the first step in foundation waterproofing.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

For many homeowners in the Twin Ports area, their home’s crawl space is out of sight and out of mind. That is, until serious problems arise. The fact is that homes with dirt or gravel bases are susceptible to a wide array of crawl space problems ranging from mold growth and insect infestation to poor energy efficiency. Fortunately, crawl space encapsulation is an effective long-term solution.

The Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation

There are many reasons why your family and your home would benefit from a crawl space encapsulation system. Let’s say you put your head in the crawl space right now. Do you smell a damp and musty odor? Is the air humid? Can you see water on the ground or wet discolored areas on the crawl space walls? If you look at the wooden floor joists, do you see mold or wood rot? In the winter, do you notice the floor above the crawl space is cold or drafty? We have just walked you through some standard questions in our inspection process. A crawl space encapsulation system will:

  • Improve indoor air quality – Encapsulating your crawl space will prevent potentially harmful gasses from the soil from passing into your home.
  • Reduce pests – Damp crawl spaces are ideal environments for pests, including termites. Encapsulation systems significantly reduce moisture, helping to keep pests away from your home.
  • Prevent mold – By eliminating dampness and standing water, crawl space encapsulation will inhibit mold growth, thereby protecting your home and your health.
  • Prevent structural damage – An encapsulation system will prevent standing water which can cause wood rot and other structural issues.
  • Improve energy efficiency – With less damp air passing into your home, it will be easier and less costly to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures.

*Please note: Minnesota Spray Foam and Coatings primarily applies exterior foundation water-proofing products during the new construction phase. For an existing structure, excavation of the surrounding dirt will be necessary and is the responsibility of the home/business owner.
