common problem in Georgia is water or moisture in
crawl spaces. A thorough way of resolving this issue
is with a crawl space vapor barrier liner. Just like the name
suggests, encapsulation is a process in which the area is
protected by encapsulating, or lining, it with a vapor
barrier. This will keep out moisture, bugs, small animals, water, foul odors, and just about any
other element that nature could throw at your home.
At Southern Home Solutions, we use
WhiteCap™ vapor barriers.
Their liner is available in a 20 mil thickness. It also
comes in a 12 mil thickness. We believe that not all vapor
barriers stack up the same. We choose WhiteCap™
vapor barriers because they are long-lasting and perform
over time to improve the air quality of your home. It keeps
water vapor out, while keeping your walls and floors dry.
WhiteCap™ vapor barriers have been proven to last over
decades. You can choose a cheap plastic liner, but it won't
do the job nearly as well or for as long. Even the materials of
cheap liners can give off foul odors, and isn't that part of
what you are trying to prevent?
Healthy Air in Your Home
Improved air in your home means no mold or mildew , which will help
prevent problems for family members with allergies or
asthma. We also recommend installing a dehumidifier like the
Santa Fe Advanced2 in conjunction with your vapor barrier
for truly advanced air care for the best air quality your
home can have. Together, these solutions will help prevent
damage that can cost your family a lot of money, all while
giving you a comfortable living environment and extra
storage space in your home. Contact us today to have an inspection
