At Ideal Basement Waterproofing, we specialize in installing crawl space systems to ensure your crawl space stays dry. We have over 25 years of experience serving Eastern New Jersey from as far north as Passaic County to as far south as Atlantic City. In New Jersey, many homes are constructed over a crawl space due to the high water table. Crawl spaces are also less expensive to build than finished basements, and they allow easy access to pipes and duct work for heating and air systems.

Damp crawl spaces can lead to a number of health issues, and this moisture can also lead to structural damage of your home. In New Jersey, instances of flooding along with high humidity levels create an environment perfect for mold to grow. This can lead to health issues, especially for those with asthma or other respiratory illnesses. In addition, moisture in the crawl space of your home can lead to wood and joist rot as well as pest problems.

Our experienced staff at Ideal Basement Waterproofing can dry out your crawl space, repair any damage, and install a crawl space system to help prevent further damage.

Crawl Space Systems

Encapsulation systems include sealing basement vents to prevent additional moisture from intruding and installing a liner over the floors and walls of the crawl space. Our professional staff will use a dehumidifier to remove excess moisture. After the crawl space is sealed, moisture cannot enter the area, effectively stopping the growth of mold.

Installing a crawl space system will help you avoid mold growth and wood rot, provide a healthy living environment, and save money on your utility bills. Contact us at Ideal Basement Waterproofing today for all your crawl space system needs!

Vapor Barriers

Water collecting on pipes and concrete walls in a crawlspace is a common problem experienced by homeowners. Excess moisture supports the growth of mold, dust mites, insects, and other pests. It also can cause structural damage to wood framing or degrades some forms of insulation.

Vapor barriers prevent the evaporation of ground moisture into crawl space air. Coupled with a waterproofing system, can expel moisture and water from a crawl space before it can cause issues.

Contact Ideal Basement Waterproofing of Ft. Lee, New Jersey to have an effective, durable vapor barrier that will protect and add long term value to your home.

Encapsulation

Water vapor and excess moisture can cause a slew of problems in your home and also have a negative impact on indoor air quality.

Encapsulating crawl spaces has become a smart solution for homeowners looking to avoid indoor moisture issues. When combined with a dehumidifier, this barrier protects the crawl space from excess moisture and all the problems it may cause.

Encapsulating a crawl space by sealing the ground, foundation walls, piers, and vents requires use of the correct materials, methods, and tools to be effective. When done correctly, it prevents the passage of air from the crawl space to your living environment and creates healthier living conditions.

Enclosed Systems

Enclosing a crawlspace by eliminating the outside vents and lining the ground and walls with a vapor barrier is an excellent solution for moisture control and other problems. Energy savings and prevention of structural damage are two additional benefits of a crawlspace closed off from outdoor air.

An enclosed conditioned crawlspace that has been properly designed and constructed can thwart mold, mildew and pest problems while also preventing rot in the structure.
