Foundation Waterproofing Florida
Jeff Earl (Structural Repair and Design Expert) and Civil Engineer Ken Sands P.E. (Structural Repair and Engineering Expert) the Owners and Presidents of Foundation Waterproofing 101, LLC. They founded Foundation Waterproofing 101, LLC in January 2016 on there belief that they better understand waterproofing and drainage more so then any other contractor or engineer in the State of Florida. Jeff Earl & Ken Sands P.E. could offer a great service at a great price with better quality than what was currently being used by other companies in the landscaping, waterproofing and drainage business through out Florida. Jeff and Ken moved to Florida in late 2013 relocating there Foundation Repair and Civil Engineering Company (Foundation Masters, LLC) from Cincinnati to Tampa Florida. We came to Florida by following a dream that we both shared, living in the sun shine State.
Waterproofing Contractors Florida
Foundation Masters, LLC quickly rose to the top of the Foundation and Structural repair industry in Tampa, Florida. Foundation Masters, LLC is currently the top Engineering Company in Tampa, Florida specializing in Foundation Repair. During our very exciting climb to the top of this industry, we got a lot of calls for waterproofing. We had no idea that there were any basements in the State of Florida. Well there are lots of basements in Florida (to my surprise) although the majority of Waterproofing calls came from homes that are built with a slab on grade construction and the floors are getting wet in the rain season or during periods of heavy rain. We specialized in basement waterproofing in Cincinnati but never expected to do any waterproofing projects in Florida.
During our first year in Florida we studied the Florida Building Code along with Florida Water table and soil conditions. To our surprise we could not find a waterproofing building code! Florida has a high water table through out most of the state so waterproofing codes do not exist, so Florida building code has elevation codes that require the first floor elevation to be 12″ above finish exterior grade. This is were the problem is when homes are built there are no floor elevation inspections when the CO is given after the home is complete, unless you are in a flood zone.
Florida Waterproofing & Drainage
If your home is at or below the exterior yard grade, the chances of you experiencing water problems are very high. If you can walk out your front or back door and there is no step down or a downward slope falling away from the home than this could be an issue at some point. When homes are built the original landscape is altered and water tables will change do to a number of different factors. If your home is at existing ground elevation and you are having issues during the rain season (high humidity, musty smells, damp floors, hardwood floor cupping or discoloration) call us for a free inspection. Remember this problem will only get worse as time passes causing damage to the interior finishes.
