If you're looking for a reliable general contractor who has years of experience encapsulating crawl spaces, then you've come to the right place! New Age Contractors is your trusted CleanSpace installer for the greater Charleston Area, and below are five facts to prove why the CleanSpace liner is a smart choice for your next encapsulation!
1. It Drastically Reduces Humidity & Moisture in Your Crawlspace
The most prominent reason to have the CleanSpace liner installed is, of course, the fact that it lowers moisture and humidity levels in your crawl space. As you may know, moisture and humidity in your crawlspace can cause the floors to buckle, harmful mold to grow, an unpleasant odor, and in severe cases the wood in the foundation of your home can start to rot.
2. The CleanSpace Liner is Extremely Durable
The liner is made out of a 20-mil 7-ply sandwich of high and low-density polyethylene with polyester-cord reinforcements. It is then treated with an antimicrobial finish that guards against mold and mildew growth on or under the liner. The liner is also tear and puncture resistant and is designed to withstand the elements and the test of time!
3. The Warranty
The CleanSpace liner comes with a 25-year total performance warranty.
4.The Compatibility of the Material
The CleanSpace vapor barrier can be installed over a number of different surfaces like poured concrete, concrete block, and uneven stone walls; it is the ideal material to encapsulate crawl spaces and basements with.
5. It Saves You Money on Energy Bills
Having a vented dirt-floor crawlspace can cost you a significant amount of money on your annual heating/cooling bills, and if you get the CleanSpace liner installed it will eventually pay for itself because it saves you money. How is this possible you may ask? The answer is simple; when a crawlspace has open vents and a dirt floor that usually means the air will be damp, which makes the space more difficult to heat and cool. Wet air puts more of a strain on the HVAC system and forces it to work harder which drives energy bills up. So, since the CleanSpace liner reduces air moisture, it will reduce the amount of work your HVAC unit has to do lowering the cost of your bills!
