Notes from Chuck to Homeowners

Note to Florida Homeowners.

The Orlando Service area is by far the busiest service area of all our Service Areas. Even if you live outside the this service area, I urge to get on our schedule. The rainy season is coming very soon. Don’t wait for your problem to get worse! Use the Service Sign Up Sheet to get started.


If you have watched any of my videos, you would have seen the lighthearted and smiling face I present for the DIY Homeowner and yes that is me! But Drainage in around your home is so important to be done right the first time. Our Service Schedule is filling fast. Now is the Best Time to resolve your water problem before the rainy season.

After 30 plus years of fixing water problems, I feel I have a great understanding of drainage. Everything from a downspout drain, a back yard sump pump, French drain and Footer Pipe. To Date, all of the systems I have installed over the years are still working providing proper drainage. I have tried hard to make each job I do like its my own home.

My time is valuable and I do charge for estimates and inspection but if you have a water problem, I urge you to sign up online. The schedule is filling fast and I can only be in one place at a time. Please fill out the Service Sign Up Sheet. All Service Charges are applied to the purchase of a new drainage system we install.


Solve the water problem before added moisture barrier


Notes – Crawl Space Waterproofing

If your home has crawl space moisture problem, you have problem got estimates the may range from 8,000 to 17,500! They might include encapsulation and maybe you want to encapsulate. But in all the years I have been doing this type of work, I have seen no difference from a good 6 mil plastic vapor barrier over 20 mil plastic encapsulation. Remember, its most important to solve the water problem 1st!

This is done with Footer Pipe and a Sump Pump. Some people call it French Drain. Footer pipe is usually 4″ perforated pipe surrounded by gravel and installed around the inside perimeter of the crawl space. It is at Footer Depth. Then means at the top of the footer. What this does is creates an island for the center of the crawl space. As ground water rises it flow to the sides and into footer pipe and is carried away to Sump Pump where the pump Lifts the water up and send it out to the street or storm.

The Note here is, Yes, its costly work, but be sure to solve the water problem 1st!


Notes about Live Help (Video Consulting) and Coming to you if needed
I started consulting via SKYPE last year and am very pleased with the people that have used the service. Being able to help the DIY Homeowner understand and fix a problem is wonderful feeling. I urge you to use the service if you are going to do this yourself. So many people start into the project but become overwhelmed with amount of work needed to install a proper system. I promise you I can help! Or if you want us to come to your home, I am sure we can make it happen, no matter where you are! Yeah sure, there might be a travel fee, but I know we can still save you money and more importantly, you will know its done right!
