Crawl Space Waterproofing
American Foundation & Basement Repairs, LLC has crawl space waterproofing solutions to fit every need. Crawl space waterproofing helps get rid of a lot of problems inside a home that families may not even be aware of. To keep ground moisture vapor from soaring up into the house and creating structural damage, you need to seal it off immediately. Using encapsulation methods including vapor barriers as well as insulation, we have been waterproofing crawl spaces in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Asheville, Johnson City, and Cookeville for many years and know the best methods and products to use.
Why Is Waterproofing Important?
There are numerous benefits to crawl space waterproofing. Moist air supplies the ideal breeding environment for dust mites, roaches and spiders, as well as molds and bacteria. Ultimately, bigger vermin are also encouraged as they feed on the bugs which in turn, feed on the mold and mildew. Your home is not the best place for the food chain to multiply!
The Hazards Of Crawl Space Moisture
The negative effects of crawl space moisture on the structure of the home are similar to those of wet basements and could possibly get costly and hazardous. Flooring boards grow and buckle, rot permeates supports and joists, condensation develops on insulating material, water pipes and duct work, humidity grows in living areas raising heating and air conditioning costs and electrical-mechanical systems weaken. All of this diminishes the value of the property.
If your crawl space is not currently sealed, contact a fully insured and licensed foundation waterproofing and repair company, like American Foundation & Basement Repair. We can come out to your home and perform a free inspection and prepare a bid for the repairs.
Our Sealing System Works
At American Foundation & Basement Repair, we make use of the EmeSeal System for sealed crawl space installation. Their system includes all the components needed for our crawl space professionals to properly seal crawl spaces. A sealed and insulated crawl space offers instantaneous benefits by providing a dry, clean, and usable area. Even more important are the long-term "Whole Home Health" benefits connected with getting rid of harmful soil gases, radon gas, and molds which are commonly found in homes which have unsealed crawl spaces.
A sealed crawl space can provide you with:
- Reduced energy costs
- A healthy home which is free from gases, radon, and mold causing moisture
