Crawl Space Encapsulation

Charleston Crawl Space Encapsulation

When the crawl space under your home is neglected, it can become a breeding ground for wood rot, mold, bad air, and more due to the presence of moisture and humidity. The smells and odor from this space will eventually make it into your home, and the moisture can cause home damage and health issues. 

The experts at United Structural Systems can take care of these issues with our crawl space encapsulation and basement waterproofing service for your Charleston or Lexington home. This method will keep unwanted moisture out of your crawl space and save your home from potential damage. The process of crawl space encapsulation involves utilizing a thick plastic vapor barrier to cover all the areas in the interior of your crawl space, including floors and walls. If necessary, after this process is completed, a dehumidifier can also be installed to keep out any excess moisture.
