Wall Cracks

Heavy rainfall or melting snow can cause basement leaks and flooding which result in weakness in the ground beneath your foundation. Foundation sinking, bowing basement walls, and other structural damage can occur as the supporting ground softens. In the process, you’re left with an ideal environment for the growth of mold and mildew.

Water Tunnel

The Water Tunnel is a channel system used to relieve hydrostatic pressure build up surrounding a structure’s foundation. Holes on both sides of the tunnel allow water to be collected from the footing/wall joints and under the floor. The unique bottomless design allows water to flow away from your basement at a flow rate of 140 gallons per minute.

Sump Pumps

All Acculevel waterproofing systems drain into a top-of-the-line sump pump system and include safeguards against power outages and pump failures. It is extremely important to have a second battery-operated pump in the sump liner in case of mechanical or power failure. Acculevel battery back ups are dependable and flexible.

How Do I Fix It?

Acculevel has a variety of solutions to prevent water intrusion and damage. Our systems effectively redirect water away from your basement using sturdy tracks, channels, and sump pumps.

Advanced Text Alarm

Many homeowners lead on-the-go lifestyles. What if you could receive a text notification as soon as your electricity failed, or your sump pump went offline? With the Advanced Text Alarm System you’ll receive a text message if high water is detected or the power goes out. It works with any sump pump system, and can even respond to a text with an update of its current settings.

Acculevel provides only the highest quality A/C backup sump pumps

A/C Backup

A powerful residential sump pump.

A 1/2 horsepower pump, this sump pump can redirect an amazing 4,200 gallons per hour. Additionally, its airtight seal traps bugs, odors, and radon gas from above and below the floor. Meanwhile, a perforated liner drains water from beneath your basement floor. A/C Back Up comes standard with a high water alarm which alerts you in case of failure; leaving you the necessary time to service the pump before a basement flood.

Acculevel provides only the highest quality D/C backup sump pumps

D/C Backup

A powerful sump pump even when the lights go out.

The D/C Back Up sump pump system comes standard with the same features of the A/C Back Up system (capable of pumping 4,200 gallons per hour). Additionally, the D/C Back Up Sump Pump offers a D/C Back Up pump capable of pumping 3300 gallons per hour and comes complete with battery and alarm to inform you the battery back up is functioning.

Acculevel provides only the highest quality heavy duty sump pumps

Heavy Duty

A dual pump system designed to always stay online.

Sump pump failure can be the result of an overworked pump, power outage, or general pump failure. To prevent sump pump failure, Acculevel offers Heavy Duty pumps. These sump pumps offer all the benefits of a D/C Back Up system, and also include a secondary 1/2 horsepower sump pump back up. Never worry about sump pump failure again.

Clean Air & Moisture / Mold Prevention


More than 50% of the air you breathe inside your home rises directly from the crawl space.

Humidity in the soil and air releases destructive water vapor, debris, contaminates, and pollen. This damp air carries mold spores and musty odors, providing the perfect environment for insects and other pests, as well as wood rot. These issues affect your home’s structure and the quality of air in your living spaces.

White Cap™ Encapsulation

WhiteCap™ is a durable, professional grade crawl space liner that serves as a vapor barrier with poly-cord reinforcement and an anti-microbial additive manufactured directly into the material. WhiteCap™ encapsulates the crawl space and isolates the home from destructive moisture, mold, rodents, insects, wood rot, and musty odors. The WhiteCap™ encapsulation process leaves your crawl space clean and provides a safe space for storage or other uses.

Spray Foam Insulation

While fiberglass is a thermal barrier, it does little to filter air and prevent energy loss. In fact, the Department of Energy estimates up to 40% of energy loss in a home can be attributed to air infiltration. Acculevel uses polyurethane spray foam to fill open gaps between joists. This additional seal prevents contaminated air beneath your floor from flowing into living spaces.

Mold Kill & Seal

Acculevel’s mold treatment and prevention coating is a water-based fungicidal coating which is applied to treat and prevent the growth of mold, mildew, fungi, bacteria, or other fungal organisms. This sealant coats and protects surfaces in unconditioned crawl spaces and is part of an ideal home waterproofing process.

How Do I Fix It?

Acculevel offers a variety of solutions to keep your crawl space mold and moisture free. Our systems effectively remove moisture from your crawl space, prevent mold growth, and make your home more energy efficient.

Tip:

The best solution for a wet crawl space is a combination of water redirection, waterproofing and dehumidification to condition the air. Acculevel offers geochannel to direct water away from your home, sump pumps remove water that might otherwise accumulate, and white cap encapsulation to keep your crawl space mold and moisture free.

Basement & Crawlspace Waterproofing Solutions


Mold Remediation

Our mold treatment and prevention coating is a water-based fungicidal which is applied to treat and prevent the growth of mold, mildew, fungi, bacteria or other fungal organisms. The sealant coats and protects surfaces in unconditioned crawlspaces or basements.

I-Beam & Jacks

Metal beams supported with adjustable steel posts offer an easy, cost-effective solution in a crawlspace or basement. After installation, the system can be tightened and adjusted appropriately to secure, support and sometimes lift the floor above.

Encapsulation

Encapsulation is a durable, professional grade crawlspace and basement liner that serves as a vapor barrier with poly-cord reinforcement and an anti-microbial additive manufactured directly into the material. The encapsulation process leaves your crawlspace or basement clean and provides a safe space for storage or other uses.

Geo-Channel

The Geo Channel is a system that can be place on top of or next to the foundation footing. It's purpose is to direct water away from the floor/wall joint and under the center of the floor. A layer of unwoven fabric filters soil and other debris from the flowing water, which prevents clog and allows for optimal water flow.

Water Tunnel

Water Tunnel is a system used to relieve hydrostatic pressure surrounding your foundation. Holes on both sides of the tunnel allows water to be collected from the footing/wall joints and under the floor. The bottomless design allows water to flow at a rate of 140 gallons/pm.

Carbon Fiber Straps

We combine carbon-fiber kevlar straps with incredibly rigid epoxies to reinforce basement walls with stronger than steel strength. These epoxies are designed to bond the carbon fiber straps directly to the structure by permeating both the foundation and carbon fiber.
