Wet Crawl Space

A vented, dirt crawl space under a home is a very bad idea. The earth and air have very high humidity levels depending on the season. This water vapor moves easily into the crawl space and upwards into the house environment. A damp environment is very unhealthy and destructive. Repairing your Crawl Space will not only improve indoor air quality but also improve the energy efficiency of your home.

Crawl space encapsulation

Isolating the house from the earth with a properly installed vapor barrier is essential to keeping your crawl space dry. Additionally, sealing the places where outside air can enter your crawl space (vents, access, etc) and where air from your crawl space (electrical and plumbing penetrations) can enter your home will ensure that your crawl space is dry, efficient and pest free.
