More About Costs & Savings With Crawl Space Repair

In an ideal world, you'll never have to repair your crawl space. When that's not possible, you'll want the next best option -- to repair it once and never have to worry about it again.

Unfortunately, many of the crawl space liner systems available on the market these days are made with a thin, flimsy material that quickly punctures and tears underfoot as service workers access the space. Other vapor barriers are installed improperly, lining the floor but not the wall, or are installed without addressing groundwater flooding within the space.

Investing in long-lasting, durable products (such as a durable 20-mil liner, or a cast-iron submersible sump pump) are vital steps towards that goal. Your crawl space system will last for decades, and you can rest easy.
