Your family home is precious. Not only is it where you spend most of your time; it’s also one of your greatest assets. What many homeowners don’t know is that their house’s crawlspace is its first defense against the outside elements and an indicator of their house’s overall structural health. That’s why, to help protect their properties, savvy homeowners in the Anderson area call on their local crawl space encapsulation experts at Crawlspace Medic®.
Our team begins by inspecting each home’s crawl space to quickly identify its vulnerabilities. Then, we custom-build a barrier that seals floors, vents, and any other areas to properly insulate your home and keep it protected for years to come.
Strengthen Your Home’s Defenses with Crawl Space Encapsulation
A secure crawlspace helps make for a structurally secure home, but an unsealed one is a gateway to all kinds of problems that can affect both a home’s structural integrity and its value. Crawl space encapsulation helps to prevent that damage from occurring by creating a secure barrier between your home’s crawl space and the outdoor elements that can impact it.
Some of the risks of a crawl space that is not properly encapsulated may include:
- Structural Damage – A foundation that’s exposed to moisture can begin to warp and rot, leading to serious structural instability that is both costly and difficult to reverse.
- Air Quality Reduction – Up to 75% of the air in your home circulates through your home’s crawl space, bringing with it any mold and mildew growing there.
- Pests – Many harmful pests, including mites and cockroaches, thrive in the dark, damp environment that unseal crawl spaces provide.
- Home Devaluation – If you’re trying to sell your home, all of these issues can influence the interest of potential buyers or drive down the asking price of your home.
