Crawl Space Drainage Matting 

The presence of water in your crawl space isn’t just inconvenient — it’s a threat to your home’s structural integrity. Issues like mold growth can lead to foundational damage and often stem from poor water management. 

Your crawl space requires a dependable defense that you don’t have to think about. With the expertise of Tar Heel Basement Systems, you can update this critical area and stop worrying about what extra moisture is doing beneath your floors.  

We specialize in identifying the root causes of moisture problems and providing customized crawl space encapsulation solutions to ensure your space remains dry and healthy.

This page will guide you through our innovative product and its role in keeping your home safe and dry. 

What is Crawl Space Drainage Matting? 

Crawl space drainage matting is a vital element in the fight against moisture. Made from strong, high-density polyethylene, this mat is designed to lie beneath your home, creating an efficient channel that guides water towards a drainage system. It’s an active layer in your home’s water management strategy, essential for maintaining overall health. 

Our drainage matting forms a comprehensive solution to current and future water issues when used alongside other waterproofing measures, such as encapsulation and dehumidification. It also strengthens your crawl space floor, facilitating easier access to utilities and a more usable storage area when used beneath a vapor barrier.

Why Crawl Space Waterproofing is Essential 

Waterproofing your crawl space is crucial to prevent further damage. Ignored water intrusion can lead to significant structural issues. At Tar Heel Basement Systems, we offer comprehensive evaluations and precise solutions, safeguarding the integrity of your crawl space. Embedding waterproofing into your home maintenance is a proactive step towards your home’s wellness. 

Advantages of Crawl Space Drainage Matting 

Crawl space drainage matting, such as the CrawlSeal™ drainage matting used in encapsulation systems, offers several significant benefits: 

Effective Moisture Control 

One of the primary advantages of using drainage matting in your crawl space is its ability to effectively control moisture. Moisture in crawl spaces can lead to a variety of problems, including mold growth, wood rot, and musty odors. Drainage matting helps to combat these issues by directing water away from the foundation and out of the crawl space. This reduces the risk of water damage and creates a drier environment, which is less conducive to mold and mildew growth. 

Enhanced Structural Stability 

Moisture can weaken the foundation and structural elements of a house. By keeping the crawl space dry, drainage matting contributes to the overall stability of the structure. Dry conditions help prevent the decay of wooden beams and joists, which are crucial to the structural integrity of your home. Additionally, by reducing the likelihood of foundation shifts and settlements caused by water, the matting helps maintain the home’s structural health over time. 

Increased Functionality of Your Crawl Space 

A dry crawl space is a more functional space. With the installation of drainage matting, the crawl space can be used for storage without the fear of water damage to stored items. Furthermore, a dry and well-maintained crawl space can contribute to better air quality inside the home, as it reduces the chances of moisture-related air quality issues. 

The CrawlSeal™ drainage matting is specifically designed to be an integral part of an encapsulation system, offering superior moisture protection. Encapsulation involves the sealing of crawl spaces to protect against moisture and the elements. When combined with drainage matting, this system provides a comprehensive solution for moisture control, thereby enhancing the overall health and safety of the home.
