Crawl Space Repair Solutions & Encapsulation in Southern NY & Northern PA
Crawl space type foundations were popular in the US in the years following WW2, as they allowed homes to be built faster and cheaper than the ones with full basements. Additionally, they provided easier access to plumbing, wires and ducts. Unfortunately, there are many issues commonly associated with crawl spaces, specially due to the type of ventilation most employed. Vented crawl spaces are an open invitation to exterior humidity and pests, causing all sorts of problems to your foundation’s structure and the health of your home.
NextGen Environmental provides reliable and effective solutions for all the common crawl space problems, including structural repair services and the best technology available when it comes to crawl space encapsulation.
Common Crawl Space Problems
Crawl spaces often lack proper drainage systems or any other measures to prevent water from pooling. Groundwater puddles in the crawl space can lead to all sorts of problems.
NextGen Environmental offers the most advanced drainage solutions for your crawl space.
Dirt floors in crawl spaces allow water to evaporate. The vents, originally created as a solution to allow the space to dry, ended up working the other way around, letting in humid air from the outside, further aggravating the situation.
Our advanced crawl space encapsulation system is designed to effectively address all sources of moisture.
Mold, Odors & Structural Decay
Relative Humidity levels that reach or exceed 60% turn any environment into a breeding ground for mold, dry rot and dust mites. Crawl spaces are frequently affected by moisture problems that can’t be simply solved with vents, fans or vapor barriers.
NextGen Environmental’s crawl space solutions are the most advanced in the market and based on the most recent building science recommendations.
