Henderson is a small city with a population of just under 1,000. Their claim to fame is providing magnesium during WWII, and that was what led to their incorporation.
The area under the home is of concern to those in Henderson. Many problems can be associated with the area under the home, most of which are avoidable with crawl space encapsulation
What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Crawl space encapsulation is a multi-step process. After removing old and damaged material, such as insulation, we wrap the area using poly sheeting, so it is clean, dry, and no longer a welcoming environment to rodents and insects.
Who Needs Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Most homeowners would benefit from crawl space encapsulation. There may be additional steps that need to be taken as well, such as removing or diverting water away from the crawl space. If you are seeing some of the following signs of trouble, your home may be a good candidate.
Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation
Helping homeowners to retake their crawlspace through encapsulation is very satisfying. In most cases, they experience the following benefits immediately.
Improves Air Quality:
The quality of the air that we breathe is more important than most people realize. After having your crawl space wrapped, it improves the quality of the air throughout the entire home.
Ensures Better Energy Savings:
Since you are lowering the humidity in the crawlspace and stopping drafts through encapsulation, you are making it easier for your heating and cooling system to do its job. The result? Lower energy bills.
Protects Your Home’s Structural Integrity:
Part of the process of encapsulating the crawl space is to stop water from getting into the area. In addition, we remove damaged material and replace it with something suitable. It all comes together to protect your foundation for the long term.
Prevents Pest Infestation:
Crawl spaces provide the ultimate environment for unwanted pests, such as insects and rodents. After encapsulation, they will be moving out for good.
Increases Your Home’s Value:
When it is time to sell your home, having your crawl space encapsulated will increase the value and be a unique selling point.
Provides Additional Storage Space:
Most of us have more stuff than we have space to store it. An encapsulated crawl space is clean and dry. It's the perfect location to store what you have.

We can waterproof a basement, just as we can waterproof a crawl space. Doing so provides you with a dry area that can add to the usable space in your home. It also stops problems you may be experiencing, such as pests, mold, and high energy costs.
If your concrete floor, driveway, or sidewalk is sinking, we can bring them back to where they need to be. We can inject polyurethane foam under the concrete and it will lift as the foam expands. Concrete leveling will often fix cracks in the concrete.
