Crawl Space Repair
Maine’s Premier Basement Company.
Removing accumulated debris, leaves, rocks, pest droppings and including the crawl space in the building’s thermal boundary by insulating at the rim joist and encapsulating the crawl space will prevent moisture and microbes from rising to the building materials above.
We use fire retardant closed cell spray foam insulation at the rim joists to keep pests from gaining entry and to provide better energy efficiency. Our complete line of encapsulating materials will take your crawl space from creepy to clean in just a few days.
The Stack Effect:
When warm air rises through your home and escapes through the upper levels it creates suction which draws replacement air from the lower levels – such as basements and crawl spaces – into your living space. Building scientists say that up to 50% of the air you breathe on the first floor comes from the basement or crawl space. Therefore, a clean basement is essential to the air quality of your home.
