Shelby Crawl Space, Basement & Foundation Repair

Dry Otter Waterproofing stands out as the premier provider for all crawl space, basement, and foundation repairs in Shelby. This page will tell you why we're your best choice.

Basement Waterproofing

Basements are notorious for leaking, so Dry Otter specializes in basement waterproofing to defend your home against potential water damage.

There are many reasons why basements have water issues. One of the biggest reasons is related to how a basement is formed. 

When a builder digs a basement, they dig out a section larger than the finished basement. Once the basement is complete, they push the loose soil surrounding your home back against the foundation to close the gap.

Water seeps into this loose soil when it rains, and over time, the hydrostatic pressure builds and pushes against your basement walls. Eventually, water seeps in where the walls and footers meet.

Heavy rains in the Shelby area can aggravate your water issue, leading to mold, mildew, and respiratory problems. Dry Otter offers a free home inspection to discuss your basement waterproofing options.

Crawl Space Repair

Every foundation type can have problems, but crawl spaces have a unique set of challenges because of the way they are constructed. 

We offer crawl space repair, encapsulation, insulation, and mold remediation to restore your crawl space to a safe, dry environment.

Crawl spaces usually have dirt floors, which allow water to seep under the foundation walls. The vents in the crawl space also let in water and moisture creating the need for crawl space repair and waterproofing.

Dry Otter Waterproofing Shelby solves all your moisture and pest-related issues. We offer mold remediation that eliminates mold and mildew that can compromise your home’s air quality and damage its structural integrity.

Basement Repair

If you suspect water problems in your basement, Dry Otter Shelby basement repair specialists can help you determine the scope of the problem and offer the best possible solutions.

It is important to address ongoing problems in your basement quickly because they can lead to negative long-term consequences.

If you notice water on your basement floor, efflorescence (white residue on walls), mold or mildew, a musty smell, wet drywall, visible condensation, bowing walls or a damp basement call Dry Otter for a free home inspection.

Foundation Repair

A strong foundation is crucial for the structural integrity of your home. If you are experiencing foundation problems, our experienced technicians can diagnose the problem and offer solutions that will restore your foundation.

Dry Otter Shelby foundation repair services use carbon fiber straps, which are lightweight yet exceptionally strong, to fortify and strengthen your concrete foundation. They are installed to strengthen your basement walls to counteract bowing, cracking, and shifting.

Our foundation repair services include wood joist repair and installation of carbon fiber straps to effectively repair your foundation to ensure the stability of your home.

Mold Remediation

Mold is a serious health issue that can cause increased respiratory infections, allergies, and asthma and should be addressed immediately. Studies show that your crawl space or basement influences 40-50% of the air in your home.

If you notice a musty smell, see water stains or visible mold, warped wood, or experience increased respiratory tract infections, call Dry Otter Waterproofing for a free home inspection.

Dry Otter has a 3-step process for basement and crawl space mold removal in Shelby that will eliminate the problem. 

We start by removing potentially dangerous air particles from your crawl space. 

Next, we purify the air in your home by removing pollutants and microorganisms. Finally, we remove all visible mold and disinfect with an antimicrobial solution to complete the process.

Plumbing leaks, lack of a vapor barrier, poor ventilation, lack of sunlight, and high humidity cause mold. Organic materials like wood, paper, and insulation also feed mold growth.

The most significant benefit of mold removal is your health. Mold can negatively impact people already suffering from allergies and asthma. It can also compromise the integrity of your home, so professional mold removal will increase the value of your home and let you breathe easier.
