Engineered Solutions of Georgia Can Install a Crawl Space Moisture Barrier at your Atlanta Home
Excess moisture in your home’s crawl space can cause problems if left unaddressed. Not only can these dark, damp spaces become breeding grounds for insects, reptiles, and rodents but mold and other such nuisances can thrive in this kind of environment and cause serious damage to your home’s foundation and substructure. Mold can also pose significant health risks if it infiltrates the air inside your home. Atlanta-area homeowners who are dealing with excess moisture in a crawl space can contact the experts at Engineered Solutions of Georgia who will address this problem by installing a crawl space moisture barrier.
What Is a Crawl Space Moisture Barrier?
A crawl space moisture barrier – also sometimes called a vapor barrier – is essentially a large tarp-like material made from polyethylene. Moisture barriers are incredibly durable and affixed to the ground, foundation walls, and sometimes even the underside of the floors underneath a house. When installed, moisture barriers prevent moisture – namely water vapor – from emanating up through the earth and collecting in the crawl space. To ensure that existing moisture is kept at a harmless level, we can do a full encapsulation, which includes installing a dehumidifier along with a crawl space moisture barrier.
