Affordable, Effective Crawl Space Waterproofing

If your home has a crawl space, it’s important to monitor its condition. If the area is compromised by water or moisture, your family and belongings could be at risk. Here are the most common signs that your crawl space needs professional attention.

  • Rusty metal surfaces
  • Rotten wood
  • Open crawl space vents
  • Dirty, wet or damp insulation
  • Insects or rodents
  • Cold floors above the crawl space during winter
  • Mold & mildew
  • Musty, stale odors
  • Puddles

At Superior Restoration and Remodeling, we can assess the condition of your crawl space during our free mold inspection. If we see any of the aforementioned signs, we may suggest crawl space encapsulation.

How Does Encapsulation Work?

One of the most common types of crawl space repair is known as encapsulation. This process completely closes off the space from the outside by using a system of heavy-duty liners and a sturdy, waterproof door. These liners are known as vapor barriers and prevent water or moisture from entering the space. The team at Superior Restoration and Remodeling also recommends installing a dehumidifier to further strengthen your waterproofing system.
