Crawl Space Waterproofing

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Waterproofing


Crawl space encapsulation is the process of sealing your crawl space off from the outside elements. Historically, an open crawl space was used to prevent moisture from gathering in the area beneath your home. Over the years, our experts at First Choice Waterproofing have found that the best way to accomplish this is to completely seal your crawl space off from the outside. Some people even use a basement waterproofing-style drainage system to divert the water.

Our crawl space experts at First Choice Waterproofing provide professional crawl space encapsulation and crawl space waterproofing services for homeowners across New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York.

How Do I Know If My Crawl Space Needs Waterproofing?

Several signs may indicate a waterproofing system or crawl space encapsulation is necessary for your home. One obvious sign is standing water on the crawl space floor. If your crawl space has a dirt floor, wet soil can also indicate that you should have a crawl space waterproofing system installed. Some less obvious signs are musty or mildewy odors in your home, high humidity levels, floor sagging or uneven floors in your home, or the collapse and deterioration of your crawl space support. Contact our experts at First Choice Waterproofing immediately if you notice any of these issues. We can provide you with a free crawl space inspection and encapsulation estimate.

What Are the Benefits of Installing a Crawl Space Waterproofing System?

Installing a crawl space waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation system has several benefits for New Jersey area homeowners. We have put together a list of some of the benefits below.

Reducing the amount of moisture in your crawl space will improve the overall quality of the air in your home.

Keeping water away from your home’s support structure is important. When you have a wet crawl space, you are undermining your foundation. Installing a crawl space waterproofing system will keep water away from your supports and reduce rot and deterioration of the structure.

Mold and mildew love wet spaces, and if you want to prevent them from growing in your crawl space, you need a crawl space that is sealed from moisture and kept dry year-round. If you have mildew in your crawl space, it is easy to spread throughout your house, causing health issues for you and your family. Crawl space encapsulation can save you the headache of dealing with mold, mildew, and the pests that come with it.
