Worried About Water in Your Crawl Space?
Do you have a problem with water leaking into your crawl space? If so, you are far from alone. It’s surprisingly easy for water to find its way into your home uninvited. It may be that you live in an area with high water tables, or that your crawl space isn’t sealed off from the outside elements properly. Any vulnerabilities left in your crawl space will ultimately leave you with water where you don’t want it.
So, what’s the big deal? You probably never use your crawl space anyway, so why should you worry about a bit of water down there? Well, believe it or not, a wet crawl space can end up causing serious damage to you and the rest of your home very quickly. If you allow water to remain in your crawl space, you’ll end up with musty odors, high energy bills, sagging floors, and even unwanted pests. If things get out of control and you end up with a full-on flood in your basement, you can expect a hefty repair bill ranging anywhere from $10,000 to $50,000. To prevent this kind of damage to your home, it’s best to have a professional take a look.
Here’s Where WhiteCap Comes In
The most important part of protecting your crawl space is making sure that it is completely sealed off from outside elements. This is done with a process called Crawl Space Encapsulation, and WhiteCap offers the very best services in this field. While many encapsulation methods will protect you for a short while, they will often end up becoming unreliable very quickly. This is usually due to flimsy materials or incomprehensive installation. The WhiteCap method, however, is designed to be a permanent solution to your crawl space worries. When it’s completed once, you won’t have to worry about it again. We take a full approach to the situation, and we don’t leave out a single detail. We install drainage matting and a vapor barrier liner, and we close off any existing vulnerabilities in your crawl space with vent covers and proper crawl space doors. We even offer top-of-the-line dehumidifiers, sump pump systems, and floor drains, just to be completely thorough.
