Many homeowners may not be aware of, or concerned with, the importance of keeping their crawl space in good condition, free of moisture and open exposures to the outside. After all, out of sight, out of mind. Right?
But, without proper maintenance, like stopping water leaks from coming in, your crawl space can quickly become saturated with moisture, causing wood floor joists to rot and compromise the structural integrity of your entire home. Moisture can also turn your crawl space into a petri dish for mold growth and potentially trigger a variety of health problems for your family.
And what about termites? Yikes! Yep, termites. Running a close second right behind water damage are termites as a homeowner’s worst nightmare. The moisture and saturated wood floor joists in crawl spaces beckon termites like moths to a flame, not to mention attracting other unwanted insects and critters seeking to make your crawl space their new home. Also, the life cycle of bugs and other pests that have made their way inside your crawl space can have an added impact on the indoor air quality of your home.
Symptoms of a Crawl Space Problem
Below are just some of the symptoms warning you that you have a crawl space problem:
- Drywall cracks inside your home
- Uneven and sloping floors

Crawl Space Encapsulation
Encapsulating your crawl space seals the area off from any moisture, humidity or unwanted critters. Our systems allow us to tailor every installation based on the needs of your home, from installing vapor and moisture barriers to drainage matting, drains, dehumidifiers, sump pumps and much more. We work with high-quality crawl space liners and vapor barriers to ensure that the area underneath your home stays protected for many years to come.
