Why Crawl Space Repair Is Important

The building materials of your home can be destroyed by three major things: water, heat, and ultraviolet radiation. Water is the most common culprit and, therefore, the most important item to focus on.

When water is getting into the crawl space of your home, with or without your knowledge, it can cause problems in your foundation. If your vents aren’t maintained, it can result in poor ventilation. At Budget Waterproofing Inc., we recommend addressing these issues to prevent further damage to your home that can lead to more costs.

How to Tell if There Is Damage

When it comes to your home’s crawl space, there are a few signs and symptoms that may indicate problematic damage or draftiness. You may notice that there is water in the crawl space that does not dry out, potentially also leading to noticeable rotting of wood.

A crawl space that has been water damaged due to moisture seeping through cracks in the foundation can become musty smelling and remain damp for some time if there is insufficient air movement. All of these issues are quite severe and need immediate attention if they occur.

Benefits of Encapsulation

As the name implies, encapsulating the crawl space involves completely protecting the area with a waterproof, condensation-proof vapor barrier and creating a new encapsulated area with dry, conditioned air. This keeps the space dry and properly ventilated, preventing further water damage, etc. Because the process involves sealing off the area, it must be done properly by a team of professionals to ensure that it does not simply create new problems from being closed off.

Our experienced Baltimore crew goes in and diagnoses the problem. From there, we will suggest a plan of action to ensure all the major foundation problems and misalignments are repaired.
