Your crawl space, although hidden, can greatly impact your home or business. A large percentage of the air you breathe in your building comes from the crawl space. If there is excess moisture in that area, your home may smell musty and you may deal with mold and mildew, causing health problems. A wet crawl space can also damage the supports, floors, and walls of your home.
In addition to mold and structural damage, a wet crawl space can promote pest infestations and negatively impact energy costs. Bugs, rodents, and other vermin need water to live and an overly humid crawl space will attract them. Some insects, like termites, only need an opening 1/64 of an inch to enter your home. If your crawl space is allowing moisture in, it is probably allowing hot or cold air to enter or leave your home, also, making your air conditioner or heater work harder to keep your home comfortable.

Our expert installers will inspect your home and apply a waterproof sheeting throughout the crawlspace and any other waterproofing that may need to be done.
