Basement & crawlspace repair services
American Crawlspace Solutions specializes in Crawlspace Encapsulation. A sealed crawlspace is a more comprehensive alternative to the traditional wall-vented crawlspace. Other benefits of crawlspace encapsulation include controls humidity, adds usable space to the home, helps prevent freezing pipes, and controls foul odors.
If your Locust Grove home was constructed on a crawlspace, chances are you have open foundation vents in your foundation walls.
Although it might not make sense, instead of allowing hot, humid air out of the crawlspace, they allow the humid exterior air into to your crawlspace. This leads to excess moisture beneath your home which leads, in turn, to an environment suitable for mold growth in the crawlspace. Crawlspace vents should always be sealed to keep out unwanted humid air. Dirt crawlspaces also need a proper vapor barrier installed on the floor and exterior walls. This is called Crawlspace Encapsulation. An encapsulated crawlspace will properly prevent humidity, leading to a healthier and more energy efficient home.
