Crawl Space Waterproofing

Waterproofing Your Crawl Space In Texas

Imagine walking through a dark cave where the air is suffocatingly muggy. The humidity is causing the walls to deteriorate, and the stench of mold is fumigating your surroundings. These conditions aren’t ideal for anyone, especially if they were present in your home.

When water infiltrates your Texas crawl space, it may experience many of these issues.

Baird Foundation Repair aims to keep your foundation and structure free from water damage! Our professional foundation experts are motivated to provide stellar services to homeowners throughout Texas. With our efficient waterproofing services, you can rest assured that your home will be protected from structural damage.

How Does Waterproofing A Crawl Space Work?

The waterproofing process is comprehensive and protects your home from various crawl space problems that can compromise its livability. One of our experts will inspect the area for any areas with leakage or water damage.

Once these entryways have been discovered and corrected, we’ll install a CleanSpace® Vapor Barrier on the floor and walls of your crawl space. This durable 20-mil poly-reinforced sheet prevents moisture from entering the area. It also has a mold-resistant additive called “Ultra Fresh,” which protects the area from mold infestation.

Reasons To Waterproof Crawl Space

When your crawl space is safeguarded from moisture and humidity, you help protect your home from their effects. Water damage can cause various secondary problems, many of which can worsen in a short period of time. There are many reasons to undergo an encapsulation service.

Mold And Fungus Grow In Moist Conditions

Mold and other fungi are attracted to dark and damp enclosed areas. These criteria make your crawl space an ideal place for them to grow. Sealing off the area from moisture infiltration makes this environment unsuitable for this growth. It will also protect other areas of your home from mold exposure.

Moisture Causes Structural Damage

Wet conditions can be detrimental to your home’s foundation. The moisture can cause wood to rot and decay, weakening the load-bearing components underneath your house.

By waterproofing the area, you’ll create a barrier that protects against these destructive elements. This service will provide additional support to your home and save you money on potential structural or crawl space repair costs.

Contaminants Lower Indoor Air Quality

Even though your crawl space is located beneath your home, it can affect your indoor air quality. When mold and mildew grow in this area, the pollutants can release harmful spores into the air. This bacteria is circulated throughout your home, which can lower your indoor air quality.

Keeping the area dry and well-ventilated will allow your home to remain comfortable and healthy.

Benefits Of Crawl Space Encapsulation

Waterproofing your crawl space isn’t just another one of our stellar services. It’s also an effective strategy that provides your home with many other advantages! Encapsulating this area is the key to many benefits, a few of which include:

  • Increases property value
  • Higher energy efficiency
  • Reduces the risk of pest infestation
  • Fewer IAQ health issues
  • Consistent indoor comfort

When you entrust Baird Foundation Repair with your home, you’ll experience services that put your needs first. Our technicians are known for their integrity and quality workmanship.

These are two factors you can expect to witness during every single service. You can trust our experts to encapsulate crawl spaces throughout the Lone Star state.

What Is A Vapor Barrier?

Since your crawl space isn’t immediately visible, it’s easy for it to become out of sight, out of mind. However, this area is prone to experiencing moisture issues that can compromise your indoor comfort.
