Let’s just clear the air now: Crawl spaces are NOT the ideal hangout spot. Seriously, when was the last time you heard ANYONE say they WANTED to go into their crawl space? Yeah, never. Usually filled with dirt and mud, construction wreckage, and even some creepy crawlies to keep you company, it’s not hard to see why homeowners tend to put their crawl space out of mind. So, what do you do when you do have a problem and need to venture into that dark abyss? That’s right! Pay someone else to do it!
Now you’re probably asking yourself: what problems could possibly come up to where someone has to subject themselves to such inhumane conditions? Well, a lot of stuff. Plumbing and HVAC problems, moisture accumulation, house settling, and foundation inconsistencies all mean your crawl space needs to be examined. Moisture accumulation alone can rot your wood framing, ruin insulation, rust pipes, short circuit electrical wires and create the perfect living conditions for mold. The longer you ignore it, the worse it gets, and the more money it could cost you! Most owners assume that crawl space issues are inevitable and easily ignored, but that’s usually not the case. It’s easy to protect your home from many of these common issues and prevent any future issues from happening!
How, you might ask? We’ve got three words for you: crawl space encapsulation. This essentially waterproofs your crawlspace, separates your crawl space from the outside, and makes the space less attractive to pests. Preventing any mold, wood rot, standing water, and any outside aggressors from sneaking into your crawl space, encapsulation makes sure that no matter what your crawl space stays clean and dry! Usually completed in less than a day, crawl space encapsulation can save you thousands of dollars on repairs, increases the value and safety of your home, and increases energy efficiency!
