Crawlspaces are important areas of your home because they provide stability and support for the home’s structure. One of the main issues in crawlspaces, is moisture. This can be solved by crawlspace encapsulation. Water enters the crawlspace through cracks, causing serious problems. That’s why it’s important to contact a professional for crawlspace waterproofing from Affordable Foundation to prevent further foundation issues. Protecting your crawlspace from moisture can improve the overall air quality of your home and increase the stability of your foundation for many years to come.
Why does moisture matter in the crawlspace?
Since moisture in your crawlspace causes foundation cracks, it is not uncommon for other issues to arise. Look for additional signs such as:
Foundation settlement and shifting
Pooling water in the yard
Mold and mildew growth
High heating and cooling bill
Soft, buckling floors
If you notice any of these signs, contact Affordable Foundation The Crack Guys immediately to avoid costly repairs and further damage. We provide soda blasting for mold and crawlspace encapsulation for moisture.
Is Crawlspace Encapsulation Right For Your Crawlspace?
Crawlspace encapsulation is a method that uses a plastic material called vapor barrier to prevent water from entering the crawlspace. The sheet is placed over the entire area of the crawlspace to seal out moisture and the diffusion of vapor from the concrete surface. It also seals cracks in the foundation walls to prevent air and water leaks. Crawlspace encapsulation cost is much less than repairing the damage that can occur. Crawlspace vapor barriers offer many advantages such as:
Lowers cooling costs
Improves indoor air quality
Stops mold and fungal growth
Eliminates condensation buildup
Increases the home’s value
Protects pipes from bursting
Keeps floors at a comfortable temperature
Additionally, permanently sealing your crawlspace can reduce your energy bills up to 20%. Call a crawlspace encapsulation company like Affordable Foundation The Crack Guys today if you need crawlspace encapsulation for home in Tennessee, Mississippi, or Alabama.
