HUMIDITY + MOISTURE = STRUCTURAL DAMAGE
Moisture can damage homes in many ways. For example, mold, wood rot, or dead pests, can cause cause foundation structural issues and pose tremendous health hazards! At the very least, such damage can lead to sticky windows, buckling hardwood floors, bent or rotting wood framing, rusty fabricated metal parts, and higher energy bills.
But there are solutions that Weinstein Construction’s experts can use to solve such problems! Our crawl space “encapsulation” (sealing) methods insulate the areas under your home from outside elements. We literally wrap such areas with a layer of ultra-durable polyethylene liner which seals and protects from moisture and assault by various critters. In doing so, vents and port doors are also often covered up to offer full insulation.
The costs to remove unhealthy mold from a home or repair structural damage from moisture can be exponentially higher than simply using an encapsulation method for protection. Why live with mold in crawl spaces? In this case, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!”
Weinstein Construction’s retrofitting experts can also take care of your home’s drainage problems, which can happen when water does not properly drain away from crawl spaces. Ensuring proper drainage is very important because unwanted moisture can damage your home’s crawl space foundation by literally shifting (and potentially cracking) it through the forces of soil expansion and shrinkage.
We have been designing and installing permanent and effective crawl space systems since 1977 and can tailor our services to your home’s particular size and needs!
