Crawl Space Repair
A dirt crawl space is frequently saturated with moisture. To help eliminate moisture from the crawl space and seal it off from harmful conditions, Absolutely Dry recommends crawl space encapsulation. The crawl space barrier system encapsulates the entire crawl space. We do this using a white, 16-mil, triple ply, extrusion coated, virgin polyethylene membrane. It is manufactured using high-density fibers yielding the highest strength to weight ratio, tensile strength, tear resistance, bursting strength and puncture resistance of any product of its kind. What this means for you is a long-lasting, durable solution to your crawlspace problems. Encapsulation systems are designed to prevent moisture migration from the soil and walls into the crawlspace. It helps guard against mold, mildew, allergens, fungus, radon gas, methane gas, heat loss, wood rot, and overall degradation of the crawl-space.
We start by installing liner a minimum of 12″ up walls, or all the way up depending on the particular application. A drainage mat may be used on the floor to prevent water from pooling under the liner. Support posts are individually wrapped as well. Some applications also require drain tile and a sump pump to be installed around the perimeter of the space. Battery back-up systems can also be utilized for added peace of mind and security. We offer two Santa Fe dehumidifier models designed for crawl spaces covering from 1800 sq ft. up to 3400 sq ft. Crawl space encapsulation is a great home improvement investment. It can improve indoor air quality, save energy, deter pests, create extra storage space and increase the value of your home.
