What is Crawl Space Drainage Matting? 

Crawl space drainage matting consists of a sturdy, dimpled sheet placed atop your crawl space’s dirt floor. Manufactured from durable, high-density polyethylene, this mat directs excess water to an interior perimeter drainage system.

When combined with other waterproofing strategies, encapsulation, and dehumidification, our drainage matting becomes an integral component of a comprehensive solution to existing and potential moisture issues, safeguarding your home’s structural stability and air quality. Additionally, it reinforces your crawl space floor and strengthens the vapor barrier installed on top of it.

When you choose Tar Heel Basement Systems to improve your crawl space, you gain access to an industry-leading, proprietary crawl space moisture management system. Designed by our experienced engineers based on insights acquired from decades of successful installations, it ensures unmatched effectiveness and peace of mind for homeowners.
