Protect Your Crawl Space with an Encapsulation Liner or a Vapor Barrier

Crawl spaces are susceptible to water damage based on their location and the way they are designed. Without the proper waterproofing systems in place, it’s likely that your crawl space will experience moisture problems at some point. Encapsulating your crawl space or installing a vapor barrier can protect it from moisture damage as well as provide many other benefits.

The Impacts of Moisture on Your Crawl Space 

Moisture can wreak havoc on your crawl space and create many different problems. It can lead to mold growth, musty odors, pest infestation, and structural damage. The moisture can cause the floor joists in your crawl space to become weak and compromise your home’s structural stability. Unfortunately, all of these problems don’t just stay in your crawl space and can impact the main living areas of your home.
