Our Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation Solutions

West Virginia is a great place to call home, but the climate isn’t the best for regulating the conditions in a crawl space. Many homeowners are faced with the reality of crawl space repair and encapsulation solutions. The following are some of the most effective solutions we use.

Dehumidifier

If your crawl space smells musty, there is a good chance you have a moisture problem. Dehumidifiers are the leading way to rid crawl spaces of atmospheric moisture and condensation and the issues they bring. A dehumidifier works similarly to an air conditioner. It cycles the air through a cooling process, condenses the water, and drains it out of the crawl space. Dehumidifiers provide a fair amount of protection but work best with other solutions, such as a vapor barrier and crawl space vent covers.

Vapor Barrier

The most effective long-term solution to crawl space problems is a vapor barrier. This plastic sheet-like material is secured to the crawl space walls and floor. This isolates the crawl space from the earth and prevents vapor and outside air from entering the crawl space. Our thick and durable vapor barrier is 20-mil thick, tear-proof, and has been treated to resist water and mold and mildew growth.

Crawl Space Vent Covers

Crawl space vents have long been thought to improve conditions by allowing air to circulate. The theory sounds reasonable enough, but we have found that open vents allow more moisture, pests, and pollutants inside. We now know the best practice is to seal your crawl space off entirely. The first step in doing this is to install airtight crawl space vent covers.

Sump Pump Installation

If your home has more than a slight moisture problem and you regularly face standing water, a sump pump might be the best crawl space solution. We install sump pumps at the lowest point in your crawl space so water from our interior drainage system drains towards the pump basin. When water enters the basin, the pump turns on and pumps the water away from the crawl space.
