Crawl Space Repair

Your house is a system, and each component has an effect on the rest of the structure. If your crawl space begins to deteriorate, grow mold, or develop structural issues, it will affect the entire structure of your home.

Crawl space encapsulation, also known as sealing, is a procedure recommended by building scientists to transform a damp, dirty, mold ridden crawl space into a clean, dry environment where mold cannot thrive.

Crawl spaces can be a breeding ground for mold, bugs, and odours, as well as a source of home energy problems and sagging flooring. Kitchener Waterproofing is ready to assist you if you are experiencing any of these problems.

Are you in need of crawl space repair?

Are any of the following statements true about your home or crawl space? If this is the case, you should have your crawl space assessed by a specialist.

Crawl space with exposed ductwork and a dirt floor
Despite the moisture and mildew problems they cause, vented, dirt-floored crawl rooms are still permitted by building rules in many regions.

Symptoms of allergies and asthma
Mold spores and dust mites in the air caused from moist crawl spaces and basements are two of the most frequent indoor air pollutants and allergens.

When it comes to crawl space insulation, fibreglass is the WRONG substance to use. It absorbs moisture, loses R-value, invites molds, promotes wood decay, and can move around.

Are crawl space vents necessary?Building rules normally require crawl space vents to be operational in the summer to allow outside air to circulate beneath the floor and avoid moisture buildup, which, along with mildew and mold, promotes wood decay.

Are crawl space dehumidifiers loud?The Trane XV20i central air conditioner is rated at 55 decibels, and the best dehumidifiers for crawl spaces are generally at that level or quieter. Again, placement is critical as you wouldn't want a noisy unit under your bedroom floor.

Are crawl space dehumidifiers worth it?Using a dehumidifier in your crawl area reduces moisture in the air and improves air quality. Improving indoor air quality through moisture control helps alleviate and possibly avoid various allergy symptoms such as eye discomfort, headaches, and respiratory difficulties.

Are crawl space vapour barriers necessary?A sump pump is typically positioned at the lowest part of a basement or crawlspace and is vulnerable to freezing when temperatures drop. When ice forms in the pump basin, water cannot flow freely and will eventually freeze completely.

Are crawl spaces damp?Crawl space dampness has been a problem in Ontario homes since they were first built. Moisture will condensate on the surfaces of your crawl space as the space grows increasingly humid, causing major difficulties in your home.

Is crawl space encapsulation worth it?Crawl space encapsulation can be an excellent approach to enhance air quality in your home, increase energy efficiency, and prevent structural damage. A layer of plastic and a dehumidifier can assist prevent moisture from accumulating in the enclosed space and the growth of mold and mildew.

Can crawl space be turned into a basement?The ground must be excavated in order to convert your crawlspace into a basement. However, appropriate planning is important before beginning the work required to excavate the basement. It is, in fact, a highly difficult procedure that must be carefully supported both during and after the work.

Can crawl space be used for storage?It is not suggested to store stuff in a vented crawl space owing to the high danger of damage to belongings from humidity, mold, and bugs, but a closed crawl space is excellent for storage because it keeps moisture and pests out. Crawl space adaptations that are more extensive can even make the space livable.

Can crawl space be insulated?There are two techniques to insulate a crawl space. The crawlspace walls can be insulated on the inside or outside of the house to provide a conditioned space, or the crawlspace floor can be insulated to create an unconditioned room.

When should crawl space vents be open?In the summer, these vents allow outside air to circulate beneath the floor, preventing moisture buildup that promotes mildew and decay. In the winter, when the air is dryer, the vents are blocked to prevent the possibility of the crawl space pipes freezing.

Where to install a crawl space dehumidifier?A dehumidifier must be built on a level foundation, preferably raised at least 4 to 6 inches above the crawl space ground level, so that condensate may drain correctly into a condensate pump or a gravity drain conveying the condensate out of the crawlspace.

Will crawl space pipes freeze?The reason why water pipes in crawl spaces are so prone to freezing is that these spaces allow cold air to circulate around the pipes.

Will insulating my crawl space help?You should treat a crawl space as if it were a short basement, so insulating the crawl space walls is advised for the following reasons: Heating ducts and water pipes in the crawlspace won't need to be insulated and won't freeze. Any heat loss through the ducts will not go to waste.
