Monday, February 1st, 2021 by Amber Ainsworth


When you waterproof your crawl space, you are also making an investment in the health of your home and yourself. 

Here are three reasons you should waterproof your crawl space:

It will reduce your utility bills

If your crawl space is cold and damp, it is going to take a lot longer to warm that air in your home. Ever notice that your floors are cold, no matter how high you crank the heat? Blame the crawl space.

It will improve the air quality in your home

Damp air in the crawl space can cause a myriad of health issues. It can aggravate allergies and asthma, especially when there is mold or dust mites.

It will decrease the chances of issues in other parts of your home

A damp crawl space can cause sticking doors and windows, damp carpets, buckling floors, damage to paint on the outside of the house, damage to roof shingles, and mold.
