Transform Your Crawl Space
Are you searching for a solution for your damp and musty crawl space, American Dry Basement Systems can help.
We're here to provide proven solutions that can transform your crawl space into a dry, clean, and healthier part of your home. We're proud to offer two types of crawl space waterproofing installations depending on the severity of water seepage and humidity levels.
Crawl Space Sealing with SuperCrete
Our first offering is Crawl Space Sealing with SuperCrete. With this service, we'll clean up your crawl space, add 2 to 3 inches of gravel, and then cover the gravel with a thick vapor barrier. But we don't stop there. We'll also pour 4 inches of SuperCrete, our proprietary waterproof concrete mix, over the entire space. If necessary, we can install a dehumidifier to control the humidity further. This system is designed to keep damp, humid crawl spaces from affecting the rest of your home.
Crawl Space Sealing with SuperDry System
For those dealing with more severe water seepage and higher humidity levels, we recommend our Crawl Space Sealing with SuperDry System. This comprehensive solution includes everything in our SuperCrete service, plus a full perimeter footing drain and a sump pump station. These additional features help to remove any groundwater seepage and reduce humidity even further, potentially eliminating the need for a dehumidifier altogether.
Take your crawl space to the next level with our proven solution.
Using our SuperDry System with SuperCrete Sealing, you'll have a healthy and dry space that is easy to access and convenient for storing essential utilities.
Signs of Crawl Space Problems
Here are several signs indicating you may have a problem:

A musty or damp odor in your home is often a sign of a crawl space problem. This odor is a by-product of mold and mildew that can grow in a wet, poorly ventilated crawl space.

High humidity in your home can signify a crawl space problem. A moist crawl space can cause humidity levels in your home to rise, leading to increased indoor moisture and the growth of mold and mildew.
- Visible Mold or Mildew
Visible mold or mildew growth in your crawl space indicates a problem. Mold and mildew can harm your health and cause severe structural damage to your home if not addressed.

Sagging or uneven floors can signify a problem. Water damage in your crawl space can cause floor joists and beams to rot, leading to sagging or uneven floors.

Cracks can occur due to settling or shifting in the crawl space, leading to structural damage and safety concerns.

The growth of mold and mildew can cause health problems, such as allergies, respiratory issues, and headaches.
- Increased Energy Costs
A poorly ventilated and damp crawlspace can cause increased energy costs, making it harder to regulate the temperature in your home.
- Damp Insulation
Damp insulation in the crawlspace is a sign of water damage, creating an environment for mold and mildew growth.
- Rust on Metal Pipes or Ductwork
Rust on metal pipes or ductwork in the crawl space can indicate a problem with water damage or high humidity levels.
- Warped or Rotted Floorboards
Warped or rotted floorboards in the crawl space can signify water damage or high humidity levels, which can cause severe structural damage.
- Peeling Paint
Peeling paint in the crawl space can signify high humidity levels, which can cause mold and mildew growth and lead to health problems.
- Puddles of Water
Puddles in the crawl space are a clear sign of a water problem and can cause severe structural damage to your home.
- Poor Ventilation
Poor ventilation in the crawl space can lead to increased indoor moisture levels, which can cause mold, mildew growth, and health problems.

Sagging or bending structural aspects in the crawl space can signify water damage or high humidity levels, which can cause serious structural damage to your home.
Addressing problems in the crawl space is essential for the health and safety of your family and the longevity and overall value of your home.
Crawl Space Sealing with SuperCrete
- Remove All Debris
The first step of the process involves removing all objectionable contents and debris (the cleaning) to ensure the absolute cleanest, most efficient crawl space sealing job.
- Add Vapor Barrier
Our expert installers seal very wet crawl spaces with a 2 to 3-inch layer of three-quarter-inch washed stone, an excellent drainage tool. A thick poly sheeting is used to cover the three-quarter-inch stone. This vapor barrier sheeting covers the entire floor, protecting your crawlspace against moisture.
- Pouring SuperCrete
The stone and polyvinyl "vapor barrier" sheeting are covered by a 3 to 4-inch layer of SuperCrete. The SuperCrete is poured wall-to-wall, sealing the entire floor surface, and is elevated several inches up the wall around the whole perimeter of the crawlspace.
- Waterproof and Dry
The SuperCrete will adhere to every nook and cranny of the wall completing a perfect seal. The strength and waterproof characteristics of SuperCrete create a dry and structurally sound storage place for your home.
- Disinfect and Sanitize
Finally, we disinfect & sanitize the crawl space using an all-natural botanical disinfectant called Benefogg to kill viruses, bacteria, fungi & mold.
