Crawlspace Encapsulation

Exposed dirt or gravel crawlspaces can be home to excess moisture, humidity, mold or mildew. Waterproofing your crawlspace is an important way to protect your home. Installing a concrete floor in a crawlspace is one way to reduce water issues.

Because dirt and gravel crawlspace surfaces allow permeation, concreting or installing a vapor mat barrier assists in keeping your home free from 

  • Water
  • Musty odors
  • Mold & Mildew
  • Radon

Solve Common Crawlspace Issues

Crawlspace encapsulation consists of installing durable, professional grade barriers to the walls and floors that reduce moisture problems.  First, crawlspace walls are treated. Then, a vapor barrier, or mat, is applied to the dirt or gravel floor. This crawlspace barrier is durable and puncture resistant, protecting your crawlspace for years to come. American Basements & Crawlspaces Corp. can encapsulate your crawlspace to turn a dark, smelly area into a dry and healthy storage area.

Encapsulating your crawlspace ensures what was once a dark, dirty area may become a safe and useful storage space in your home.
