Should I Waterproof My Crawlspace?
If you’re like most homeowners, then the crawlspace under your home is somewhere you avoid at all costs. If something needs to be done under there, that’s what contractors are for, right? Unfortunately, you’re going to need to pay some attention to your crawlspace, as it can become the source of larger issues for your home if water is able to seep into it. Some of the problems that constant moisture intrusion into a crawlspace can cause include musty smells, fungal growth, and rot that can lead to structural damage.
The fastest way to solve this issue is crawl space waterproofing. In this process, a moisture barrier is installed on the floor of the crawl space, all vents and other openings to the outside are sealed off, and the walls are insulated. These steps will help keep moisture out, and a dehumidifier can be installed to regulate the level of moisture in the air.
In addition to preventing moisture intrusion, crawlspace waterproofing will also:
- Help lower energy bills by making the home more energy efficient
- Prevent pests from taking up residence under your home
- Improve the air quality in your home
