5 Reasons to Get a Crawl Space Inspection in Atlanta, GA


Just like your body needs regular checkups to stay healthy, your home’s crawl space needs to be inspected to help prevent water damage or other foundation issues. Watch out for pest infestations, increased moisture, signs of mold, musty smells, and humidity inside your home. These are all signs that you might need a crawl space inspection. The sooner Atlanta crawl space experts discover an issue with your home, the sooner you can have it fixed to keep your family safe and healthy.

Humid Climate and Mold Prevention

Crawl space inspection in Atlanta is especially important due to the humidity we experience year-round. H20 Proof & Foundation Repair understands the implications of the constant moisture in the air and signs of potential crawl space issues at your property. Left untreated, mold can lead to health concerns for you and your loved ones. 

If your crawl space is dry and prepped correctly with a vapor barrier and insulation, it is much easier to keep it dry and prevent mold from growing in your crawl space. We offer a patented Atlanta crawl space service; it is a moisture-proof encapsulation system that assures a dry, healthy below-grade space for years to come. We can also install sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and drainage systems to address your property’s specific needs.

Structural Integrity

It’s easy to overlook this seldom-used or thought-of space, but it can have major implications for your home and your bank account. A dry, crack-free crawl space boosts the structural integrity of your entire home. If joists in your crawl space have moisture damage, mold, or rot, the walls and floors of your home can be negatively impacted. When you seek Atlanta crawl space services, be sure to choose a team with expert knowledge of this unfinished space in your home.

Energy Efficiency

An insulated crawl space will help you keep your home at a comfortable temperature more easily, saving you money on bills and helping the environment. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “Homeowners can save an average of 15% on heating and cooling costs by air sealing their homes… including crawl spaces.”

Pest Infestations

If your crawl space has openings, even small ones, that allow air and moisture in, pests often follow. By properly sealing your crawl space, you can prevent pest infestations. All of our Atlanta crawl space services include checking for pests and recommendations for solutions to address that issue if it is present in your home.

Indoor Air Quality

The H20 Proof & Foundation Repair exclusive crawl space encapsulation system creates a moisture-proof vapor barrier for your crawl space. This stops water intrusion, blocks moisture seepage, controls humidity, and creates extra space for storage. With a completely waterproof crawl space, your home will be protected from mold contamination and unhealthy indoor air. Many of our customers have been breathing in mold spores for months and had no idea. Don’t let that happen to you!

Shannon “Red” Logan


Red is a hands-on leader with more than 30 years of experience in the construction industry. Born and raised in Acworth, he is an amazing example of a Georgia boy who grew from the ground up in construction. Red landed his first job at 15 as a block mason’s assistant – carrying blocks and helping to build foundations. By 17, he was building homes side by side with his father – a job he enjoyed for 12 years. He also spent four years as a fabricator in a machine shop. By 29, he went to work for Eric’s father at H2O Proof & Foundation Repair.


During his time here, Red has learned everything there is to know about both pre- and post-construction waterproofing. His experience as a fabricator has also proved invaluable. Thanks to his understanding of the fabrication of components for structural lifting, we brought fabrication in-house at H2O – which has led to cost savings for our clients. Not only is he an excellent asset to our company, but also to the residential and business clients we serve.

Eric Collett


From the age of 10, this second-generation waterproofer from Cumming, GA virtually grew up in the foundation business. His father, Rick Collett, launched H2O Proof & Foundation Repair in 2004. Every chance he got, Eric would follow his father to job sites, and – as he got older – would help the crew repair foundation walls and waterproof to earn pocket money. After graduating from South Forsyth High School, he began working in the family business full-time – believing that hands-on experience is the best education you can receive in this industry. After being in the field for eight years, Eric transitioned to a project management role where he oversaw crews, analyzed issues, and proposed solutions on a wide variety of pre-and post-construction waterproofing and foundation repair jobs. His project expertise ranged from homeowners having foundation issues and investors flipping homes to commercial developers and builders of new construction homes.


Boasting nearly 25 years of experience in structural lifting and foundation repairs, Eric has also been trained and certified on the restoration side of the industry. He is proud of the fact that the company his dad launched, and Eric continues to grow today has helped everyone from families to large corporations all over the Southeast stay dry and safe in their homes and businesses. He credits the fact that his company is based on its own firm foundation of long-standing relationships, industry knowledge, and unwavering integrity for H2O Proof & Foundation Repair’s success.
