Vancouver’s first choice for crawlspace protection
A home’s crawlspace can often be forgotten about despite its exposure to the elements and other potential for damage. A crawl space can easily pool water, allowing moisture penetration and molding that ultimately leads to significant structural damage to your home. Even without flooding, moisture can accumulate and permeate your cement, ultimately causing mold and dry rot. Luckily, instead of waiting to launch an expensive repair project, you can call Kris Eilts Concrete and Drainage for crawlspace protection that will keep your home guarded from any of the outside world’s harmful intrusions.
From building out a sturdy drainage system that prevents water pooling, to encapsulating your crawlspace with a vapor barrier to prevents increased humidity, we’ll be sure your crawl space never experiences water-based damage that affects the rest of your house.
