Crawl Space Solutions
In the Bozman area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, these vents don't really work that way, having these open vents allows water to get in during rain and snow storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing mold growth. If you have a crawl space, up to half of the air entering your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will be better for the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control humidity. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof line, sometimes accompanied by a sump pump to keep water out of your crawl space. Encapsulation will stop bugs and animals from getting into your crawl space as well allowing you to use it for storage. Water in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
