Crawl Space Drainage Matting
Dealing with excess water or flooding in your home’s crawl space poses serious threats to your property’s foundation and the wellbeing of your loved ones. But there is hope for repairing the damage and shielding against future moisture concerns.
Foundation Repair of Western Colorado offers premier solutions for creating healthier living spaces, including revolutionary crawl space encapsulation tactics. A key component of this whole-home approach is the addition of drainage matting. Read on to learn more!
What is Crawl Space Drainage Matting?
Crawl space drainage matting is a critical line of defense against excess moisture under your home. It’s an essential piece of Foundation Repair of Western Colorado’s encapsulation strategy.
Constructed from corrosion-resistant, high-impact polyethylene, the durable matting withstands damage while reliably removing potential threats. Composite materials and meticulous product engineering allow CrawlSeal™ to outshine alternatives. Its flexibility also conforms well to the region’s uneven, clay-heavy soil.
When paired with other encapsulation measures, CrawlSeal™ forms a shield against existing moisture and fortifies your home against future problems from the ground up.
Signs You Need Crawl Space Drainage Matting
There are a number of signs that suggest you need drainage matting. Some are easier to notice than others, but look out for the following:
- Standing water
- Wet insulation
- High energy bills
- Mold growth
- Musty odors
- Sagging floors
- Pest intrusion
- Wood rot
Don’t brush these symptoms under the rug. Excess humidity breeds further complications threatening your home’s structural integrity, air quality, and energy efficiency.
Trust the crawl space authorities at Foundation Repair of Western Colorado to diagnose your situation accurately and rapidly implement fixes protecting all that lies above.
Is Crawl Space Waterproofing Necessary?
Yes! Allowing moisture concerns to linger escalates minor leakage into catastrophic flooding and irreparable damage.
Attempting DIY fixes with retail products seems appealing but typically doesn’t solve the problem. Not to mention, it isn’t safe to navigate a crawl space without the proper gear or training.
Instead, schedule a thorough crawl space inspection with a professional like Foundation Repair of Western Colorado. Taking early action with the help of an expert is the first step toward moisture protection.
What Are the Benefits of Crawl Space Drainage Matting?
CrawlSeal™ delivers many benefits. If you decide to invest in crawl space encapsulation in general, you’ll experience the following:
- Enhanced Water Control – Water stays contained, guided to drainage systems.
- Preserved Structural Integrity – Fortifies against moisture leading to wood rot and mold.
- Pest Protection – Discourages animals that thrive in damp conditions.
- Energy Savings – A dry environment prevents cold air and heat loss.
