Excessive moisture in your crawl space can cause all kinds of damage to your home, which is why crawl space encapsulation is a great solution for many Charleston, SC homeowners. Your home gets up to 75% of its air from your crawl space, so a problem there means a problem for the whole house.
Moisture is harmful on its own, and it can lead to bigger issues, like termites and mold. Encapsulation is very effective against these issues, as it involves sealing your crawl space with plastic sheets that prevent moisture from getting through. Next, a dehumidifier is placed in the space to maintain the correct moisture levels. This not only eliminates pests and other moisture damage, but also makes it easier to insulate your home and reduce energy costs.
About Our Crawl Space Encapsulation Services
We supply a number of flexible options for keeping your crawl space properly maintained and preserving the air quality and structural integrity of your home. Our services include:
- Inspection services. Our expert inspectors focus on finding the problem, rather than trying to sell you unnecessary services. Their job is to gather information and make an honest assessment of what needs to be done.
- Moisture remediation. When enough water seeps into your crawl space, that presents a real problem that can cause long and short term headaches. This can cause fungi to grow on your floor system, cause problems with your home’s insulation, and undermine the overall health of your home. We supply a range of solutions including vapor barriers, French drains, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and encapsulation systems.
- Structural repairs. Our skilled carpenters can repair the wood in your crawl space that has been damaged by moisture and termites.
- Annual care plan. We keep your home safe and give you peace of mind all year round. We provide 2 thorough crawl space evaluations that check up on your ductwork, plumbing, insulation and other issues along with pest and rodent inspections.
