Crawl Space Encapsulation from Albany to the Adirondacks
Crawl spaces are extremely common in homes throughout Upstate New York in areas like Albany, Clifton Park, Schenectady, Saratoga Springs, Glens Falls, Queensbury, Lake George, and Plattsburgh. One of the major issues homes with crawl spaces have is crawl space humidity.
As humidity builds in your crawl space, moisture condensates on the surfaces of your crawl space, which can lead to serious problems like rotting, mold, and corrosion. These infestations can cause illnesses and health problems among your family if left untreated. The only sure way to keep your crawl space dry is by encapsulating your crawl space with a vapor barrier.
What is a Crawl Space Vapor Barrier (Encapsulation) ?
A crawl space vapor barrier (also known as a crawl space ground cover) is a barrier comprised of a strong plastic material that lines the ground and walls of your crawl space, preventing moisture from seeping into the air beneath your home.
In addition to the health benefits, installing a vapor barrier underneath your home can significantly raise your home’s value if you’re planning on selling your home in the future.
