Encapsulated Crawl Spaces

People don’t usually go into their crawl space. It is the forgotten area of the home and many people do not consider enhancing their crawl spaces as a step to improve energy efficiency in their home. They don’t know that crawl space repairs are as important as waterproofing their basement. If your house is built over a crawl space, then it is an important area to fix and maintain. It holds the structural foundation, beams, and joist that support walls and floors.

Left untreated, crawl space areas can potentially cause problems inside your home. A damp crawl space can damage your home’s structural integrity, making the structure weak and not safe for your family. If you have stagnant water in that area, moisture buildup can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. They are not only unpleasant to the eyes, but they can cause a number of health problems for your family too. Unwanted pests like cockroaches and termites tend to like living in dark, damp places like a wet crawl space and may eventually infest the house.

Always remember that when crawl spaces are not properly and regularly maintained, they tend to accumulate moisture that could start bigger problems. Protecting your crawl space right away can help maintain a strong foundation for your house and provide a safer place for your family. You can trust American Basement Solutions for crawl space repair, basement waterproofing, foundation and structural floor repair, and mold remediation.
