Crawl Spaces (Encapsulating & Repair) | Aurora, IL
Crawl spaces in your property can also be prone to water damage and moisture buildup due to their locations and dark and damp nature. To avoid having your crawl spaces exposed to excessive moisture, we can assist in providing encapsulating solutions for your crawl spaces. Encapsulating your crawl space can essentially seal it off and prevent any water from finding a way to leak or seep through. We can encapsulate your crawl spaces, no matter how big or small.
Crawl spaces can include any enclosed space between your wall and another wall that was built to house important features of your home. You’ll usually find crawl spaces in the basement where the heating devices are located, as well as where your ductwork is, insulation near the attic, and much more. Crawl spaces are likely situated throughout your home and can easily succumb to water damage and moisture buildup if not encapsulated accordingly. We assist in encapsulating your crawl spaces to ensure that moisture doesn’t find a way in through a space that you don’t have immediate access to.
When your crawl spaces are infiltrated with excessive moisture buildup, this can lead to failing insulation because it’s become dampened. Depending on what kind of insulation you have, it may not be water-resistant and moisture could potentially lower its ability to provide the insulation you need to keep your home warm and cool throughout the seasons. When we assess the conditions of your crawl spaces, we can check to see if any damages have already been done to your insulation and inform you of what steps to take next to protect the insulation.
Cracks and Holes
If there are cracks and holes in your crawl spaces, you’ll want to have those checked and repaired immediately. Having a crack or hole in a crawl space means that further leaks and water buildup are possible and the cracks and holes can spread further. Moisture buildup and more exposure to water can result in mold or mildew accumulating in the crawl spaces and later seeping into the rest of your home before you’re able to locate its origin. We can help by filling any cracks or holes in and locating the extent of damage to ensure the cracks and holes are abruptly sealed and no longer pose a threat to your home.
Our team of contractors can offer crawl space repairs and encapsulating services to protect your crawl space from the dangers of moisture and water. Since crawl spaces are quite dark as it is, adding more moisture to them can even lead to an infestation in pests taking up residence in your crawl spaces. To avoid this, we offer repairs to seal off the walls and ceilings, fill in cracks and holes, and encapsulate the crawl space as a whole so that no crevices remain open or exposed. This will also prevent pests from finding a way into your crawl space.
