Basement Waterproofing Services for Your Raleigh Home
Mold, leaks, wall damage, flooding, property damage – it can all be avoided with proper waterproofing. Carolina Basement Solutions utilizes basement waterproofing systems to divert incoming water into a drainage system and away from your basement. We offer a line of systems designed to meet your basement's specific needs while fitting within your budget. Our waterproofing systems all consist of the same critical components:
- Moisture barrier – Prevents all moisture from entering the interior of your basement.
- Diverter – Maintains open pathways to direct all water into your drainage system.
- Drainage system – Accommodates a high volume of water, and the drainage system is placed under your basement floor to collect and discharge all stormwater.
- Sump pump – Pumps the collected water out of your basement and discharges the water away from your home. The sump pump is the heart of any basement waterproofing system.
We also offer an optional (but highly recommended) PitBoss+ system to keep your sump pump running during power outages caused by hurricanes, thunderstorms, snow, and ice.
Water Damage in Basements
More than half of America’s homes suffer from problems in their basements caused by water and excess moisture. If you notice a white powdery substance on your basement walls, condensation, or leaks around basement windows and other penetrations, there is likely too much water entering your basement. You might also see wet walls, drywall, or floors in your basement, all of which indicate a water problem. If the water damage is extensive, you may even see cracked or bowing basement walls.
None of these signs of water damage should be ignored. Contact Carolina Basement Solutions at (833) 641-0517 for immediate basement leak repair. We’ll investigate the problem and develop a solution to keep your basement safe and dry.
Does Your Raleigh Basement Have Wall Damage?
If your basement walls are cracked, buckling, leaning, or bowing, they are suffering from structural issues most likely caused by excess water in the ground around your house. As water builds in the soil around your home, it exerts hydrostatic pressure against the walls of your basement. Hydrostatic pressure is the force exerted onto the walls of a home due to the amount of natural groundwater surrounding it. This causes them to bow, crack, and buckle. Basement walls can withstand an average amount of pressure from the surrounding soil, but if you have an older home or your walls were poorly constructed, they may not be able to withstand this pressure.
If you notice damage in your Raleigh home’s basement walls, call Carolina Basement Solutions for help. Our team can assess the damage and stabilize your basement walls using carbon fiber straps. Our highly trained technicians will evaluate your walls and identify the root cause of the damage. If insufficient water drainage is at fault, we will install a waterproofing system to divert water away from your basement and prevent it from re-entering.
Wet Crawlspace Repair & Crawlspace Waterproofing
Crawlspaces are just as prone to problems with water as basements. Excess moisture in your crawlspace can cause mold, pests, rust, wood rot, and even structural damage.

Additional Crawlspace Services
Most crawlspaces have dirt floors, which naturally contain some water. When it evaporates into the air of your crawlspace, it is often absorbed into the wood framing. Over time, this results in wood rot and mold growth. A vapor barrier can be installed over your crawlspace’s floor to block this water vapor and control the moisture levels in your crawlspace. Carolina Basement Solutions specializes in installing vapor barrier systems that help prevent the effects of water vapor in your crawlspace.
Flexi-Seal & Flexi-Foil Moisture Barriers
At Carolina Basement Solutions, we use the highest-quality products to provide the longest-lasting solutions. Our commitment to quality means that we use Flexi-Seal and Flexi-Foil barriers for superior moisture control in crawlspace vapor barriers and encapsulations.
- Flexi-Seal– Backed by a lifetime warranty, this reinforced, heavy-duty barrier is tough, durable, tear-resistant, and exceeds all building code requirements for crawlspace encapsulation. It also contains an antimicrobial additive for added protection against mold and mildew.
- Flexi-Foil– Flexi-Foil is used to line the walls and acts as a vapor barrier while insulating the foundation walls. It’s made of non-toxic aluminum, meaning Flexi-Foil is not only a moisture barrier but also a radiant barrier. It stops radiant transfer to increase your home’s efficiency and decrease your energy bills. In the summer, it reflects heat, but in the winter, it retains warmth.
Crawlspace Floor Supports
Raleigh homes are typically constructed using wood framing materials, many of which are built over a crawlspace. Within a typical crawlspace, block or brick piers can be found, each supporting the floor framing above. It is not unusual to find areas throughout many homes where the floors are uneven or have settled, especially in older homes. This problem may become evident with cracks in interior walls, sticking doors, and sagging or uneven floors. It can be caused by a variety of reasons such as natural settling over the years, heavy loads over unsupported areas, or rotten and damaged floor joists. Whatever the reason, Carolina Basement Solutions can install a Strong Post system to provide the necessary support to fix sagging floors.
