Do you notice musty smells coming from your crawl space or basement?
Did you know as much as 50 percent of the air you breathe in your home can come from the lower levels, according to the EPA? As hot air rises from the crawl space, it enters the living areas of your, bringing nasty smells, dust and harmful allergens along with it.
Whether you use your crawl space for extra storage or have never set foot in it, it’s an important part of your home that can affect your quality of life. Damp crawl space conditions should be addressed in a professional way to avoid serious issues in the home, including the gradual decay to the structural integrity of the foundation.
If you are looking for a cost-effective way to seal you crawl space from harmful outside elements, consider Crawl Space Encapsulation Redwood Citys professional crawl space repair services to help fix your issues.
Doing Crawl Space Encapsulation the right way can be nasty business
Crawl spaces come in all shapes and sizes. And the problems affecting them do too. Which is why a one-size-its-all approach usually fails within 2 years.
Some local companies here in Alabama have been known to push a cookie-cutter crawl space service to save time from project-to-project, but it’s important to understand that there can be several stages and options to consider when completing crawl space restoration the right way.
A successful crawl space encapsulation plan must be custom-designed to address the unique needs of the home. This requires a thorough examination underneath your home. That may turn some companies off to this type of repair, but not the team at Crawl Space Encapsulation Redwood City. If we’re not crawling around under your home, getting muddy, dealing with snakes and spiders, we’re not doing our job!
Crawl Space Encapsulation includes a wide variety of custom-options to keep your home dry and healthy
Sealing the crawlspace with an encapsulation system, adding vent covers, and replacing old crawl space doors can combat the issues listed above permanently. With encapsulation, a heavy-duty vapor barrier liner is installed on the crawl space floor and walls. A complete system will also include an option for crawl space waterproofing, mold remediation (if needed), dehumidification and insulation of the space.
A crawl space that has been properly encapsulated will protect your home from moisture, bugs, critters (such as mice), water, foul odor, and virtually all other elements of the natural environment that could enter the crawl space if left unsealed.
Crawl space encapsulation is rapidly becoming the standard for any contractor or homeowner with a wet, nasty or smelly crawl space. Crawl Space Encapsulation Redwood City’s method of encapsulating a crawlspace includes completely sealing it up to protect the area from exterior elements of nature. By completely closing off the outside elements, you will reduce your energy usage, prevent moisture, and reduce bugs and critters.
Some crawl spaces may need waterproofing, foundation repair or even a specialized dehumidifier to reduce humidity. The great thing is, Crawl Space Encapsulation Redwood City offers all of these services and they marry into our WhiteCap system perfectly. Once the complete system is professionally installed, the crawlspace becomes an excellent storage area and a much healthier environment.
