Crawl Space Problems

Wet Crawl Space


Crawl Space Repair and Encapsulation

The team here at America’s Basement Contractor has been fixing wet, leaky, moldy, and humid crawl space environments for many years now. We have a solid understanding of what works and what doesn’t when it comes to repairs and solutions. We will be able to send a trained, knowledgeable tech to your home to evaluate the situation. Our tech will look at the damage which has already been done to pinpoint the cause of the leaks or humidity issues. Next, we will come up with a plan of action for getting the situation taken care of once and for all. We make use of NASH® vapor barriers and liners for encapsulation work and Santa Fe® Compact2 dehumidifiers for moisture control in the air.

Due to high levels of moisture and dampness, this crawl space was sealed with our White Cap vapor barrier to trap moisture away from the home.
