Crawl Space Encapsulation Services for Homeowners in Atlanta, GA
If moisture is accumulating in the crawl space of your Atlanta, Georgia, home, and you don’t take the proper measures to mitigate it, more serious issues may arise down the line. Unchecked moisture in a crawl space can lead to mold and mildew growth, which can compromise the air quality in your home. It can also cause your wooden floor beams and joists to rot, resulting in structural damage to your home. Since 2006, Engineered Solutions of Georgia has provided crawl space encapsulation services to homeowners throughout the Atlanta area and beyond. As the area’s leading specialty construction company, we have the knowledge and experience needed to properly diagnose any issues you are having with your crawl space and provide a lasting solution.
What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?
The typical crawlspace encapsulation process involves carefully applying a thick sheet of polyethylene to the ground beneath your house and along the inside walls of your foundation. This sheet is often referred to as a “moisture barrier” or “vapor barrier” because it prevents moisture from emanating up through the soil and collecting in your crawl space. Once the vapor barrier is in place, a dehumidifier is used to remove excess moisture from the air, floor beams and joists, and other structural components that may have a high moisture content.
Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation
Crawl space encapsulation is beneficial as it not only inhibits mold and mildew growth and wood rot, but it also makes your crawl space less hospitable for wood-destroying insects such as termites. Having a vapor barrier in place may also improve your home’s energy efficiency by reducing heat transfer through your crawl space.
We Also Offer Basement Waterproofing
As part of ESOG’s home waterproofing services, our team also installs sump pump systems that can protect your home and possessions from water damage by quickly removing large amounts of water. Our reliable sump pump system will catch the water that seeps inside your basement or crawlspace and direct it back outside or into a drain line. Typically, we install our pumps underneath a basement floor or the floor of a crawlspace. Our durable, high-performance system features:
- A primary pump that can remove more than 2,000 gallons of water per hour
