Excessive moisture is your crawl space's worst nightmare. Left untreated, this problem can lead to numerous other issues like mold, pests, wood rot, and even structural failure. Waterproofing your crawl space is an effective way to safeguard your home and prevent water damage. At LRE, we offer multiple solutions that can work alone or combined for maximum protection.
Yes, we highly recommend sealing your crawl space. Crawl space sealer is a cost-effective and easy preventative solution that's applied directly to wood framing and subfloors. This protects the components of your crawl space from moisture and gives the wood extra strength to resist environmental issues, preventing warping and rotting.
While both are highly efficient ways to protect your crawl space from water damage, sealing and encapsulation are two different solutions.
Encapsulation is an essential part of our waterproofing system and is applied to completely control moisture and airflow in your crawl space. We complete a custom installation that can include vapor barriers, insulation, and a dehumidifier. Encapsulation is designed to keep outside elements from getting into your home.
Sealing is a solution that's applied directly to the wood framing in your crawl space. The protective coating adheres to joists and subfloor materials to protect them from damages that happen due to excess moisture.
The experts at LRE trust the Watson Seal ® LumberKote™ Crawl Space Framing & Subfloor Polymer Sealer as the leading non-toxic sealant solution for crawl spaces. The sealer protects your home in just one step, forming a tough coating that resists mold and fungus. Designed with long-chain polymer technology, the formula dries out and stabilizes the lumber's moisture content even in cases where damages have already started to happen. As a Certified Installer, LRE backs every LumberKote™ application with a 30-year warranty.
