Three Biggest Issues With Crawlspaces
When it comes to this area in your home, there are always three issues that need to be addressed. They are:
Structural Issues: When there is damage along your crawlspace, this can weaken the structural integrity of your home. Problems in this area can create cracks in the wall, sagging floors, windows and doors that don’t open and close properly, and other problems. Crawlspace issues can weaken the entire support system of the building.
Water Leaks: We all know that water always takes the path of least resistance and is one of the most damaging forces on the planet. If water enters your crawlspace, it can weaken the structure, cause rot, mold and other issues.
Air Quality Problems: As water gets into your crawlspace and mold begins to form, we all remember that hot air rises, so problems in this area of your house can lead to air quality issues throughout the home.
Many people aren’t familiar with this term, but crawlspace encapsulation is the process of turning your dirty, scary crawlspace into a clean, dry place where mold can’t grow.
The benefits of crawlspace encapsulation are clear. We repair any damages that exist in this space where moisture can get in and create a clean, dry area that is good for your home.
The average cost of crawlspace encapsulation is typically around $5,000 but it also depends upon factors such as the amount and type of repairs that are needed and the size of your space. It can cost as little as $1,500 to do the encapsulation for smaller spaces.
The benefits of encapsulating your crawlspace are obvious in that you are eliminating moisture which greatly reduces the chance of mold growing in your home. This also improves the air quality in your house as well as reduces the chance of pests, structural damage, and energy efficiency.
