What's on Your Homeowner's Checklist for Fall? 

Make sure to include your crawl space! We often find ourselves in the basements and crawl spaces of our homes this time of year as we stow our summer belongings and dig out our winter gear. With the particularly wet fall we have experienced recently, we encourage you to remain aware of the humidity levels in your home, particularly your crawl space. 

Impacts a Crawl Space Can Have on a Home

Excess humidity and moisture in a crawl space can lead to several issues that plague homeowners:

poor quality air being pulled up and circulated throughout the home via the stack effect

colder floors

•higher energy bills

•mold, mildew, and pests

wooden support beams & floor joists below the home rotting, warping, buckling, and decaying

sinking, uneven floors and severe structural damage to the home

Installing a dehumidifier in your home gives you greater control over your home's humidity. We use premium, commercial grade products to protect your family and property from the harmful effects of excessive moisture — for more information on all of the products we use, please reference our website. 

How We Care for Your Crawl Space

To protect against leaks, excess humidity, and structural failures, our team thoroughly examines and installs a custom solution based on the needs of your particular home. We expertly install top of the line products like vapor barriers, floor liners, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and jack poles so you can rest easy knowing your crawl space is safe and dry. This Homeowner was in need of encapsulation and insulation for their crawlspace to help keep cold air out and control moisture. Our solution not only protected this home, but by sealing and insulating the crawl space we also reduced the Homeowner's energy usage and saved him money.
