Engineered Solutions of Georgia Offers Cost-Effective Crawl Space Encapsulation Services in Marietta
Crawl space encapsulation can cost anywhere from two or three thousand dollars to as much 15 thousand, depending on the size of the crawl space, what condition it is in, the materials used to encapsulate it, and what area of the country you live in. Essentially, when you encapsulate a crawl space you apply a heavy-duty polyethylene sheet (like a large piece of super durable plastic) to the ground, the foundation walls, concrete piers, and sometimes even the underside of the floors. This tarp-like barrier is stabilized and sealed at all seams and junctions using a special waterproofing tape and then a dehumidifier is run to remove excess moisture from the air. What this does is prevent moisture from the earth from seeping into your crawl space and collecting there, which can cause mold and mildew to grow and ultimately cause significant damage to your home’s substructure.
