Expert Crawlspace Waterproofing Services for Decatur, GA, Homeowners
A damp, dark crawlspace is a prime breeding ground for rodents, roaches, ants, and other insects, but those aren’t the only problems. Crawlspace moisture can lead to serious issues if left unchecked. From mold and mildew growth that impacts the air quality in your living spaces, to rotting wooden floor beams and joists that result in structural damage to your home. Since 2006, Engineered Solutions of Georgia has offered comprehensive crawlspace waterproofing services to homeowners throughout the Decatur area. Backed by more than 15+ years of experience, our team has the expertise to properly diagnose crawlspace issues and provide a lasting solution.
What Does Crawlspace Waterproofing Entail?
Also known as crawlspace encapsulation, the waterproofing process involves carefully applying a thick sheet of polyethylene to the ground of your crawlspace and along the inside walls of your foundation. This sheet, often referred to as a “moisture barrier” or “vapor barrier,” prevents soil moisture from collecting in your crawlspace. Once the vapor barrier is installed securely, a dehumidifier can be used to remove excess moisture from the air, floor beams, joists, and other structural components that may have a high moisture content.
Benefits of Crawlspace Waterproofing
Waterproofing your crawlspace not only inhibits mold and mildew growth and wood rot but also makes the space less hospitable for wood-destroying insects like termites. Having a vapor barrier in place may also improve your home’s energy efficiency by limiting heat transfer through the area.
