Seal a Crawl Space for Utility and Comfort

Crawl Space Brothers - Seal a Crawl Space for Utility and Comfort

A crawl space offers homeowners additional space for storing infrequently used items. However, without proper care, this valuable area can quickly become damp, dirty, and a breeding ground for mold. It’s easy to forget about a rarely seen or used space, leading to the dreaded “out of sight, out of mind” scenario.

When moisture threatens your crawl space, it’s time for our crawl space seals. At Crawl Space Brothers, we believe in protecting your home and ensuring your crawl space remains safe from water. Opting for our sealing services guarantees a dry, clean, and mold-free environment for your belongings.

Why Homeowners Need a Crawl Space Seal

Many homeowners underestimate the importance of a well-maintained crawl space, especially when it’s not being actively used. However, even an unused crawl space plays a significant role in the health and value of your home. Let’s review some of the consequences of not having a crawl space seal for your home’s protection.

How Moisture Creeps into Your Crawl Space

Most crawl spaces commonly use bare dirt or gravel floors, which are an open invitation for groundwater seepage due to hydrostatic pressure. Similar to basements, cracks and areas above the foundation offer yet another entry point for water.

Increased Humidity:

A damp crawl space indirectly boosts the humidity levels of your entire home. The moisture from the crawl space rises in the form of water vapor, overworking air conditioners and dehumidifiers. This not only reduces the comfort of your living space but also surges energy costs.

Compromised Flooring:

The escalated water vapor from the crawl space affects the first floor of your home. From solid wood to laminate, all types of flooring are at risk. Exposure to increased moisture causes swelling, buckling, and even the deterioration of adhesives in carpet squares or vinyl tiles. This damage can lead to inconvenient and costly repairs.

Spread of Mold Growth:

A damp crawl space is a haven for mold growth. Organic materials like framing lumber combined with moisture become breeding grounds. Mold spores can travel upwards, affecting the air quality and health of the inhabitants. This poses potential allergy risks and even diseases.

Diminished Resale Value:

Even if the current homeowner ignores the damp crawl space, future potential buyers won’t. A poorly maintained crawl space can become a deal-breaker during home inspections, significantly lowering the resale value.

At Crawl Space Brothers, we prioritize your home’s health. Our expertise in crawl space seals ensures you reap the benefits of a clean, dry space, whether for long-term storage or seasonal needs. Don’t let an unused space diminish the worth and comfort of your home. Let us seal the deal for you, ensuring peace of mind.

When you’re facing noticeable signs of water seepage, Crawl Space Brothers employs methods akin to traditional basement waterproofing since a crawl space is just a short basement. Our expert team excels in addressing dampness. After rectifying major seepage sources, we move to our encapsulation stage, ensuring your crawl space remains consistently dry and ready for use.

Here’s how we encapsulate your crawl space:

  • Our team installs a robust polyethylene vapor barrier over dirt floors. For homeowners looking for a more permanent solution, we also offer concrete flooring options.
  • We use reflective insulating sheeting for the walls, ensuring maximum thermal efficiency.
  • We seamlessly seal the floor and wall coverings together. The top edge of the wall covering is meticulously sealed to the structure, encapsulating the space entirely.
