Having a home by the water is for sure a very peaceful place to live but, the moisture and humidity can turn your relaxation haven into a disaster. It is not uncommon for homeowners to forget about their crawlspaces, but unfortunately, it is one of the key elements of a home. A damp, moldy crawlspace can cause structural issues for your house, and health issues its inhabitants. If you adequately encapsulate your crawlspace, you are not only protecting your house but your family as well! Call New Age Contractors and get your crawlspace encapsulated today!
This crawlspace was suffering from dangerously high humidity and moisture levels. Due to its unusually large size, this crawlspace was releasing up to 16 gallons of water a day. New Age Contractors installed a vapor barrier as well as an Ultra Air 98H dehumidifier to aid in lowering the humidity and moisture levels. This crawlspace received a new door and the old fiberglass subfloor insulation, vapor barrier, and ground debris were all removed.
For countless years, the conventional way to construct a crawlspace involved venting the crawlspace walls and installing fiberglass batt insulation (the fluffy stuff) between the floor joist. Unfortunately, if you want to build a moldy, damp, nasty crawlspace, insulating the crawlspace ceiling with fiberglass batts, and venting the crawlspace is the best way to accomplish this.
This Edisto Island homeowner called NAC because his crawlspace walls were vented and it was insulated with fiberglass batts. After one of our technicians came out to perform an inspection, it was determined this crawlspace was suffering from severe moisture and humidity levels.
The dedicated NAC team cleared out the fiberglass batt insulation, installed the CleanSpace liner, and integrated a dehumidifier. The homeowner was thrilled with the outcome and very pleased with the fact that he no longer has to worry about his crawlspace.
