WhiteCap Vapor Barrier
The WhiteCap™ vapor barrier can be installed during the crawl space encapsulation process. The vapor barrier is attached to the walls and floors of this area below your home, and it's used to keep moisture and high humidity levels out where they belong. The liner is available in 20 mil thicknesses and 12 mil thicknesses. We realize that there are other CS encapsulation and repair companies in the area who you could choose to do business with. However, you need to understand that their products are nowhere near as effective as ours, and they aren't made from the same quality materials.
Crawl Space Liner
Our crawl space liner was designed to last, meaning you won't need to get it replaced in a year or two, which may be the case with store-bought liners. Our vapor barriers have been tested for years, and they may even last for decades at a time. They will ensure that water vapor from the floors and walls stays out so that it can't get inside and cause problems. Also, the liner will ensure that bugs and other unwanted critters are kept out so they can't get inside and set up "homes" of their own - eating away at wood and causing you to have poor indoor air quality in the livable areas of your home.
The liner (vapor barrier) is only one of the things that gets installed during the crawl space encapsulation process. Dehumidifiers an sump pumps can also be installed for extra protection against dangerous moisture and humidity. As a homeowner, you might be wondering why it is so important to keep this area below your home dry, safe, and healthy. After all, you never really have to go into it for anything, right? Regardless of what you use it for, you still need to protect it from damage.
It has the following benefits:
- Improved air quality
- Stops bugs from getting inside
- No more moisture or excessive humidity below your home
- No more mold growth
- Creates a usable storage space
Crawl Space Moisture
Crawl space moisture can ruin your home's indoor air quality by fostering the development of nasty mold and bacteria. It can also ruin your home's structural support by damaging wooden beams and floor joists. This can cause thousands of dollars in damage. It can all be prevented through crawl space encapsulation!
