Expert Crawlspace Waterproofing Services for Kennesaw, GA, Homes
If you’re like many other homeowners we serve in the Kennesaw, Georgia, area, you’ve probably never visited your crawlspace. As a homeowner, it’s good to know that if you’ve noticed mold and mildew growth in your home in addition to strange odors, the source may be your crawlspace. More specifically, the source may be excess moisture that has emanated up from the ground and collected in the crawlspace. If left unaddressed, a damp crawlspace can lead to a host of other problems besides the ones mentioned—everything from rusted plumbing to structural issues like rotting wooden floor joists. As one of the area’s leading foundation repair and waterproofing companies, Engineered Solutions of Georgia specializes in crawlspace waterproofing services that can prevent any issues that result from excess moisture.
How Do You Waterproof a Crawlspace?
Crawlspace waterproofing involves lining the ground beneath your home and your foundation walls with a vapor barrier. Also known as a moisture barrier, a vapor barrier is a thick, tarp-like sheet of polyethylene. After we fit it into your crawlspace and seal all the seams with a special waterproofing tape, we will run a dehumidifier to restore the space to an appropriate level of humidity.
What Benefits Can I Expect After My Crawlspace Is Waterproofed?
Crawlspace waterproofing from the ESOG team offers a homeowner many benefits, including:
- Improved energy efficiency because the vapor barrier also helps regulate the movement of heat into and out of your home
- Better air quality, not only in your crawlspace but throughout your home
- Less chance of wood-destroying insects and other pests infiltrating your crawlspace
