Are you aware of moisture in the crawl space under your home? If you have an older home, it has vents around its crawlspace that were initially believed to combat the problem of moisture. In the last twenty years, cases have shown that the vents can do more harm than good.
Dependable Home Services provides a waterproofing service called encapsulation that prevents moisture in those crawl spaces. When done properly, encapsulation is the perfect way to stop the movement of water vapor from the ground up into your home. This can prevent mold from compromising the stability of your home or worse, rendering it uninhabitable. Choosing a contractor in the Richmond, VA area that performs encapsulation can alleviate concerns you may have about a damp crawl space and the resulting moisture damage, thus preserving your home’s structural integrity and resale value.
