Crawlspace encapsulation and Vaport Barrier Services Atlanta
Is the air quality in your home as good as it could be? Many metro Atlanta homes suffer from poor indoor air quality, musty odors, and rotting floorboards as a result of moisture build-up in the crawlspace. There is a solution, though: crawlspace encapsulation.
Crawlspace encapsulation, also known as crawlspace vapor barrier installation, cuts off the crawlspace from outside air. While the conventional building wisdom used to be that outside air was a good thing, experts now agree that this isn't the case for the Southeast. Because of hot, humid weather, the outside air is full of moisture. When this gets trapped in your crawlspace, it can lead to a wide range of problems. These include:
- Poor air quality
- Musty odors
- Mold damage
- Buckled wood floorboards
- Insect infestations
- High energy bills
- Poor performance of air conditioning systems
Many homeowners simply don't realize that moisture in their crawlspace is to blame for all of these problems. Instead, they spend too much money trying to fix each symptom while ignoring the underlying issue.
A crawlspace vapor barrier can be a huge improvement for your metro Atlanta home. Our crawlspace encapsulation service starts with a free estimate, giving you a full picture of how your home could benefit from having your crawlspace professionally sealed.
