Waterproofing & Foundation Repair in Charlotte, NC

Waterproofing & Structural Repair for a Charlotte, NC Home. A Case Study from Dry Pro Foundation and Crawl Space Specialists



When Kelley, one of our System Design Specialist went to inspect this real-estate project, he thought he was going to see a potential foundation job. However, once he inspected the property he saw the need for waterproofing and structural repairs. When Kelley inspected the property, he saw:

  • Cracks in the brick cellar walls
  • Debris all over the crawlspace left from previous construction. -Wood debris could attract wood destroying insects
  • Standing water in the crawlspace
  • All of the major framing members were not being supported- Piers needed to be replaced or rebuilt to repair the frame
  • Improper connections at joists to girder in multiple locations
  • Fungal growth appeared on the girder
  • High humidity in the crawlspace can raise wood moisture levels


The Dry Pro Crew started this project off by removing all of the debris from the crawl space. Next, they fixed the foundation and structural issues by installing helical piers and IntelliBrace™, repairing the masonry pier and installing IntelliJacks™ and piers. After, crew members Adan, Chino, and Antonio moved forward with waterproofing the crawlspace. They installed a sump pump, exit line and bubble pot, water guard and French drain system. After, they installed 10 mil WallSeal™ on the walls of the crawl space. Once the crews finished, the crawl space was looking good and ready for its new owners.
