Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation For Homes Across The US

Crawl spaces were a popular type of foundation construction in the US in the years following World War II due to the possibility of building homes cheaper and faster. This method also facilitated access to plumbing, wires and ducts. Unfortunately, it is now known that crawl spaces present a number of problems that builders in the past have not taken into account. Vented crawl spaces are particularly susceptible to exterior humidity, along with the moisture present on the soil. This prolonged exposure to moisture brings structural problems, mold growth, infestations and many other issues that can significantly impact the safety and health of your home.

Grate Products offers a wide range of products and solutions for all your crawl space problems, such as the CrawlShield Encapsulation System and repair and encapsulation services.

Common Crawl Space Problems

Groundwater Intrusion

Crawl spaces often do not have any proper drainage system or other means of preventing water from accumulating, which means that water can collect in puddles within the crawl space, increasing humidity along with the chances of developing any moisture-related problems.

Grate Products is a leader in advanced drainage solutions for all your crawl space needs.

High Humidity

Crawl spaces are built in such a way that leaves them directly exposed to all the water evaporating from the dirt floors, along with the exterior humidity coming through the vents. An untreated crawl space will inevitably develop issues related to prolonged exposure to humidity.

Grate Products’ advanced crawl space encapsulation system is built to address and prevent moisture intrusion from all possible sources.

Mold, Odors & Structural Decay

When Relative Humidity levels reach or exceed 60%, problems related to moisture, such as mold and dry rot, start to appear. Crawl spaces are particularly susceptible to high humidity and most standard solutions are far from being the most efficient at solving this issue.

Grate Products offers the most efficient and reliable crawl space solutions, all based on the most recent building science recommendations.
