Lexington Crawl Space Encapsulation

If moisture enters the crawl space in your home, the buildup can cause a host of damage to your home as well as health issues for your family. Unchecked, that moisture can result in mold, wood damage, and bad air. Smells building up in the crawl space will make their way into your house after a while, causing further damage.

United Structural Systems has experts who can help. We offer basement waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation to help Lexington homeowners protect their homes. Crawl space encapsulation prevents moisture from building up in your crawl space using a plastic vapor barrier to cover the interior area. 

How To Know If You Need Crawl Space Encapsulation

If your Lexington home has a moisture problem, it may need crawl space encapsulation. Here are some signs to watch out for—some obvious and some not:

  • Mold and mildew presence
  • A bad or unusual smell in your home
  • Foundation cracks
  • Persistent problems with rodents or insects
  • Sweat showing up on your windows

What Are The Benefits Of Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Moisture in your crawl space can wreak havoc on your home if not addressed in a timely fashion. Mold and mildew can start growing where there has been excess moisture. You may also end up with poor air quality around your home and begin to see structural damage, such as foundation issues.
