U.S. Waterproofing, a Rotunda Capital Partners portfolio company, has acquired Crawl Space Brothers, one of the Southeast’s premier providers of residential crawl space encapsulation, repair, and basement waterproofing services. The acquisition of Crawl Space Brothers marks the first acquisition completed by U.S. Waterproofing since partnering with Rotunda in November 2022.
Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Crawl Space Brothers will expand U.S. Waterproofing’s geographic footprint to the Southeastern U.S. Through years of successful greenfield expansion, Crawl Space Brothers has grown its service area throughout six markets and multiple locations, including North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. Crawl Space Brothers will continue to pursue new market growth in partnership with U.S. Waterproofing.
The acquisition by U.S. Waterproofing will also enable Crawl Space Brothers to expand its residential waterproofing and foundation repair offerings to more comprehensively serve its customers. U.S. Waterproofing’s best-in-class marketing, sales training and installation expertise will further strengthen Crawl Space Brothers’ value-proposition and service capabilities. Collectively, U.S. Waterproofing and Crawl Space Brothers will pursue additional complementary acquisitions throughout the U.S.
Crawl Space Brothers is led by David Dygowski, Aaron Caddel, and Jacob Broussard who will each continue in their existing roles post-transaction.
“We are excited to partner with David, Aaron, Jacob and the entire Crawl Space Brothers team,” said U.S. Waterproofing CEO Matt Stock. “With this acquisition, U.S. Waterproofing expands beyond its core Chicagoland market. We are prepared to leverage U.S. Waterproofing’s substantial infrastructure and marketing expertise to expand upon the customer-centric culture that has made Crawl Space Brothers so successful. The acquisition of Crawl Space Brothers is just the beginning of growing our geographic footprint and solution capabilities through complementary acquisitions nationally.”
“We are thrilled to join the U.S. Waterproofing team and have been impressed with their 50+ year legacy of success, growth trajectory and our shared core values centered around our collective employees and providing exceptional solutions for our customers,” said David Dygowski of Crawl Space Brothers. “The entire Crawl Space Brothers team looks forward to collaborating with U.S. Waterproofing to build one of the largest residential services platforms in the U.S.”
