Crawl Space Encapsulation
Have you been thinking about getting crawlspace encapsulation? If so, then you are definitely thinking about something that can help both your home and your family. By encapsulating your crawl space with a vapor barrier that covers both the floor and the foundation pillars up to your home, you protect your home from things like moisture, mildew, and mold that often build up in crawl spaces. The process is quick and affordable, and offers nearly instantaneous results.
Benefits from Crawl Space Encapsulation
When you turn to the experts at Atlanta Crawl Space for your crawlspace encapsulation, your home is going to get the initial benefit. The crawlspace will remain dryer once encapsulated, making for a stronger foundation for your home. Plus, when your crawlspace is covered in these heavy-duty vapor barriers, you also have lower costs to keep your home warm in winter months and cooler during the summer. Having a dry crawlspace also allows you to use the space for storage, when needed, without you having to worry about the items being stored there.
Having your crawlspace encapsulated with heavy-duty vapor barriers also promotes better health around your home. One of the most common spores that come from a home without an encapsulated crawlspace is mold. This is never good to breathe in, especially in those without a strong immune system such as the elderly or the young. By encapsulating your crawlspace, you keep the area dry, which stops mold and mildew growth. The insulation is also kept in place, which prevents any of the debris from entering your home by means of the ductwork.
Here at Atlanta Crawl Space, there are varying levels of vapor barriers that we can use. When you go with a thicker vapor barrier, you also have extra protection against ripping and tearing when you enter the area.
