A home with crawlspace access has several obvious benefits. Providing an easy path to the areas underneath your home, a crawlspace can be a game-changer when it comes to servicing your HVAC, plumbing or any number of vital systems.
However, excessive amounts of moisture in a crawlspace can cause damage to integral parts of your foundation and is one of the quickest ways to turn a beautiful home into a source of stress.
Luckily, the team here at The Crack Guys is always willing to get on our hands and knees for a fix, and we’ll go above and beyond — well, low and below, to make sure that moisture isn’t an issue for the crawlspaces of your home.
Your crawl space is under your house and out of sight — does it really matter if water runs under there?
Yes! Excessive water entering your crawl space has a much bigger impact on the health of your foundation and home than you might think.
Waterproofing your crawlspace will offer several advantages, keeping your home safe, healthy and in good condition for years.
Read on to learn some of the top reasons why preventing moisture from settling in your crawl space is essential.
Being such a convenient, tucked out-of-the-way space, crawl spaces are ideal for routing certain plumbing and HVAC components through. While undeniably convenient, this means that all these components are vulnerable to any excess moisture that’s allowed to accumulate, not to mention potential damage to the structural components of the crawl space itself.
Fortunately, with the best crawl space encapsulation in Alabama and Tennessee, our team can turn your crawl space into an area that’s protected from the elements just as well as any room inside of the home.
The cool, damp environment of a crawlspace without waterproofing can unwittingly create an ideal living environment for pests and vermin of all varieties. Waterproofing from The Crack Guys is one of the best ways to ensure that the space below your home never becomes a 5-star resort for things that creep, crawl and potentially steal your copper.
One of the biggest advantages of waterproofing is mold remediation and the improvement in air quality that comes with it. Even if you’re not spending any significant time in a moldy crawlspace, it’s only a matter of time before that mold makes the transition to cross the barrier to the interior of your house.
Waterproofing will not only prevent the growth of mold but greatly reduce the chances that it’ll end up in your lungs.
Thanks to the insulation installed during our professional encapsulation services, your crawlspace will become far more energy efficient. This efficiency will extend to your entire home, resulting in less wasted energy and lower utility bills.
A crawlspace can be packaged as a tempting perk in most situations, but a waterproofed crawlspace is appealing in almost all situations. Waterproofing is a surefire way to essentially eliminate the major drawbacks of having a crawlspace while maintaining every advantage. It’s been proven that an encapsulated crawlspace can modestly increase the value of the entire home.
Mold remediation simply refers to the process of identifying the root causes of mold growth and preventing them from growing in the future. This process is one of the biggest benefits of investing in professional waterproofing for a crawlspace. Unchecked mold growth can wreak havoc on the health of you and your family and our services will almost remove the possibility for growth entirely.
