Crawl Space Repair
The area under your home needs to be dry, safe, and healthy. If it's not, it can cause a variety of problems for the rest of your home, including health issues for you and your loved ones. The truth of the matter is that what happens there can influence the rest of your home quite significantly. This means that if you have a leaky crawl space, you likely have a mold problem, an insect infestation, or various structural problems caused from decaying and frotting wood.
Atlantis Waterproofing has been working in this industry since 1986 in the Nashville, Cookeville, Knoxville, and Chattanooga areas. We guarantee that you and your family will be satisfied with our encapsulation services. We have been taking care of moisture issues, mold problems, sagging floor joists and more. We can install vapor barriers, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, floor jacks, and other products to make sure that this area underneath your home stays safe and healthy. We know that there are a lot of related products sold in home improvement stores, but they aren't nearly as effective as what we can provide for you.
Systems and Products
Encapsulation is the installation of waterproof barriers that are created from high-quality, durable materials which won't rip or tear. These liners will be installed on the floor and to the wall surfaces. They will create an air-tight seal so that moisture and humidity won't be able to get inside and cause problems. If you don't have a vapor barrier installed, this moisture can cause wooden structures underneath your home to warp, rot, and decay. Also, this moisture can lead to mold development, and it can be attractive to unwanted critters, such as termites, rats, snakes, and roaches.
Atlantis Waterproofing can also provide you with sumps. This is ideal for homeowners that don't have a basement but continue to have water & mold problems, and in some cases structural problems. Without proper water flow around your home, the structure can begin to collapse from rotted out wooden structures and soft soil conditions caused by water pooling.
A dehumidifier is a purifier of moist air underneath your home. These humidity control devices minimize dampness which prevents potential mold problems. Mold can result in contaminated air you breath, attracting pests & insects, and more importantly cause wooden structures underneath your home to deteriorate.
