In Need of Crawl Space Encapsulation at Your Kennesaw, GA, Home?
Since 2006, Engineered Solutions of Georgia has provided crawl space encapsulation services to homeowners throughout the Kennesaw, Georgia, area. Crawl space encapsulation involves applying a thick polyethylene sheet (often called a vapor barrier or moisture barrier) to the ground beneath your home and to the inside of your foundation walls. Once the moisture barrier is in place, we use a dehumidifier to remove excess water vapor from the air, the wooden floor joists, and other structural components that may have a high concentration of moisture.
Why Should You Encapsulate Your Crawl Space?
The primary reason to encapsulate a crawl space is to prevent moisture from emanating up from the ground and collecting beneath the homes, where it often leads to health hazards like mold and mildew growth or structural damage such as wood rot. Other benefits of crawl space encapsulation include:
- Improved energy efficiency, as the vapor barrier can also help to regulate the movement of heat into and out of the home
- Better indoor air quality throughout the entire home
- A reduced risk of wood-destroying insects and other pests infiltrating the crawl space as it will be a less habitable environment
The first step to finding out how we can help you is to schedule an initial consultation. During this appointment, one of our waterproofing professionals will inspect your crawl space to determine where the moisture is coming from and advise you on a lasting solution to your musty crawl space problems—whether that is crawl space encapsulation or a different drainage solution such as sump pump installation.
