Crawl Space Repair
Professional Crawl Space Drainage Solutions in Virginia Beach & Hampton Roads
If you currently have a wet or damp crawl space, it's important to get it taken care of by a professional right away. Wet crawl space conditions can promote mold growth and wood rot, eventually leading to structural damage and unhealthy air. Atlas Master Companies in the Virginia Beach area
offers crawl space drainage solutions to promote safe, dry, and clean crawl spaces.
Crawl Space Drainage - Interior Drainage Systems
If you have standing water or serious leaking problems in your crawl space, the first step is to install a system that will drain water out of your home. This can include an interior drainage system
such as a sump pump and sump pit. Atlas Master Companies offers professional drainage installations for your crawl space so that you can efficiently keep water out of your home.
Crawl Space Encapsulation - Vapor Barriers
Because vapor barriers decrease the moisture levels in your crawl space, they improve the air quality of your entire home and make it more energy efficient. We use products made by Earth Contact Products (ECP)
, the leading manufacturer in the foundation repair and basement waterproofing industry.
A vapor barrier is designed to reduce the evaporation of ground moisture into the air of the crawl space. Since 40% of the air we breathe comes from the crawl space, it is extremely important to keep it clean! At Atlas Master Companies, we offer top quality ECP vapor barriers to protect your Virginia crawl space from moisture. These vapor barriers offer the following benefits:
- High strength to weight ratio
- Tear and punctual resistant
- Keeps humid air out and cool air inside
- Creates a healthy living space
- Lower energy bills
- Guards against air pollutants and allergens
- Reduces moisture and keeps water out
- Reduces radon levels
Warning Signs of a Damaged Crawl Space
Since most crawl spaces are out of sight and mind, many homeowners tend to ignore them. However, the healthiness of your crawl space will affect the entire structure of your home. Look inside your crawl space for other warning signs such as:
- Wood rot
- Standing water
- Mold growth and musty odors
- Insect and rodent infestation
- Water condensation on pipes
- Rusty metal surfaces
- Cold upper-level floors in winter
- High levels of radon
