Did you know crawl space moisture can damage your foundation? Excessive moisture can lead to mold growth and wood rot and cause severe foundation damage to your home or commercial property. The good news is that sealing your crawl space can prevent damage to your foundation and health. When it comes to protecting your foundation from damage, waterproofing systems are paramount. Buildings in the Tampa Bay area deal with excessive moisture from our humid climate, so it's important to install waterproofing measures, like sealing the block walls in the crawl space area, to protect your home or business from damage.
When sealing a crawl space, we recommend covering all your walls in Tampa with a crawl space vapor barrier. However, if your crawl space walls are built with concrete blocks, moisture moves up through the open cavities and into the space anyway. Covering the walls is only half the battle.
At LRE Foundation Repair, our solution to Tampa concrete block foundation walls in a crawl space is the WallCap Block Wall System. This plastic covering seals off the top of your block wall, keeping humidity out. And because it's clear, your walls will still be visible for termite and pest inspectors.

Many crawl spaces have vents or other openings that allow moisture to seep through and cause damage to your foundation. Sealing your Tampa concrete block foundation or crawl space will prevent moisture and other elements from affecting the area. You can protect your property from long-term damage with waterproofing solutions such as encapsulation and block wall sealing. Unsealed crawl spaces attract rodents and other pests. Moisture can also promote mold growth, causing poor air quality in your home. Sealing the crawl space can also help boost the building's energy efficiency and prolong the life of HVAC units.
We have a team of dedicated professionals who specialize in crawl space encapsulation by installing crawl space vapor barriers in the Tampa Bay area. Encapsulating your crawl space complements block wall sealing. Combining encapsulation with sealing gives your crawl space an extra layer of protection against water damage that can harm your foundation.

When we encapsulate your crawl space, our expert Tampa crawl space vapor barrier installation team will ensure coverage of every inch of your space. Crawl space doors, moisture barriers, insulation, and dehumidifiers are a few components of our encapsulation system for crawl spaces.
