Frequently Asked Questions About Crawl Space Repair

How do you stop water intrusion in a crawl space?

Eliminating water intrusion in a crawl space uses a similar process to basement waterproofing. Installing a crawl space encapsulation system, interior drainage system, and crawl space sump pump is the best way to stop water seepage in the crawl space.

Is a vapor barrier necessary in a crawl space?

A vapor barrier helps protect your crawl space — and your entire home — from costly water damage. When left untreated, crawl space moisture can cause structural damage, mildew and mold growth, musty odors, pest infestations, and more.

Should I seal my crawl space?

Yes. Crawl spaces should be completely sealed off from outside moisture in the air and ground.

Should vents in a crawl space be open?

Although there is a debate on whether crawl space vents should be opened in the summer and closed in the winter, we recommend keeping them closed year-round. Closed crawl space vents protect your home from outside moisture and pests, which benefits your entire home. Crawl space encapsulation can further protect the condition of your crawl space and home.
