Help protect your family and your home from excess moisture, toxic mold, unwanted pests, soil gases and harmful airborne allergens with our Crawl Space Encapsulation Richmond Team. With a Perma-Seal Crawl Space Encapsulation System, you can turn your dark, dingy crawl space into a bright, healthy, usable space. Encapsulating your crawl space is very different from waterproofing a basement, it involves the use of a heavy duty liner as well as a specially designed drainage system and sump pump to remove the water from your home.
Some of the features and benefits of encapsulating your crawl space are:
An encapsulated crawl space will add additional bright, clean usable storage space to your home.
Added insulation can help reduce your heating and cooling costs.
The wall and floor liners act as a barrier to insects, gases, odors and moisture, enhancing air quality throughout your entire living space and creating a healthier home.
You can increase the resale value of your home. Water problems must be disclosed when you sell the house, which could turn away potential buyers.
If any future problems occur, our Encapsulation System can be cut and re-seamed with minimal disruption.
Wall and Floor Liners
After homeowners remove their belongings and a rough grade is established, we place a floor liner over the ground to become the base of the encapsulation system. These liners help disperse soil gases and enhance water drainage below the floor liner. Then, one of our wall liners is completely sealed over the floor and walls to fully encapsulate the crawl space and isolate the area from the outside earth. All of our wall liners are 100% waterproof and will act as a barrier to moisture, gases, insects and odors, and will not support any mold growth. They are designed to direct any wall seepage straight into the drainage system and sump pump, helping keep your crawl space dry.
Crawl Space Encapsulation Richmond offers crawl space encapsulation services for existing homes and new construction. We’ll start with a thorough inspection and based on our assessment, develop a plan of action that often includes:
Lining the floor and foundation with reinforced polyethylene liner that prevents moisture from seeping in. The products and materials our team uses are premium grade materials not available at retail stores and are specifically designed to block moisture and withstand the ground’s natural alkaline qualities. Unlike cheaper vapor barrier materials, they won’t break down and leave your home unprotected.
Sealing all openings in the sidewalls, including vents and doors leading to the exterior in order to stop the infiltration of outside air.
Installing a Santa-Fe dehumidifier to remove excess humidity that is the cause behind moisture and mold issues. Designed to operate in crawl spaces, the dehumidifier also discourages termites and wood-destroying insects, as well as other pests.
