Do It Yourself crawl space encapsulation can be an effective way to reduce the harm to your crawlspace environment. Laying down plastic sheeting and installing a sump pump are some ways homeowners can keep up on intruding groundwater. These methods may require frequent maintenance as they don’t provide a completely solid solution.
The big picture of Do It Yourself crawl space repair? The problems affecting your crawl space can be managed, but unless they are solved at the source, they will continue to demand ongoing purchases, installments, and maintenance.
One such homeowner in Brentwood, Tennessee decided to partner with a professional crawl space encapsulation service and called our team here at Barrier Waterproofing Systems to come to take a look. We offered them a FREE evaluation of their crawl space and worked with the homeowner to determine which crawl space encapsulation services to implement right away.
First, we removed the shredded, mildew filled insulation hanging from the floor joists. Next, we pulled up the torn plastic sheeting laying along the floor of the crawl space and disposed of any debris that had made its way under the sheeting. This can happen through the gaps where the seams had failed.
Our team went right to work installing thick insulation boards along the walls of the crawl space. This would prevent the crawl space from becoming filled with hot or cold air entering. The heating and air conditioning unit of the home ultimately ends up combatting any intruding difference in temperature. Then we lined the walls and floor of the crawl space with a high-quality vapor barrier. The barrier completely sealed out intruding water from entering in through the ground and foundation. Some pipes with weakened joints were also repaired, averting a few leaks.
