The process of crawlspace encapsulation seals off the area underneath your house like an unfinished basement. Air and moisture are kept out and a French drain system can be installed to pump out excess water and keep it out of your crawl space. This helps to preserve the wood and keep it from rotting, prevent mold and mildew growth, and reduce the chances of foundation settling.
Whether you have a full basement or just a crawlspace as the foundation for your home, waterproofing is not only a corrective measure, it’s an important preventative measure as well. From crawlspaces to basements in Greensboro and the Triad area, keeping water out is crucial when it comes to foundation maintenance. A wet foundation leads to sinking, instability, mold growth, and other problems.
