Title: The Marvels of Crawlspace Encapsulation: Keystone Basement Systems' 4-Step Solution

 

Crawlspace encapsulation may not be the most glamorous topic, but when it comes to the health and comfort of your home, it's a game-changer. Keystone Basement Systems understands this all too well and has designed a revolutionary 4-Step Crawl Space Encapsulation System to ensure your home is a haven of comfort, cleanliness, and energy efficiency. Let's dive into the benefits of this system and why it's a smart investment for your property.

Step 1: Stopping Water Intrusion

 

Before we even think about encapsulating your crawl space, it's crucial to tackle any water intrusion issues head-on. Plumbing leaks, foundation leaks, and drainage problems can wreak havoc on your crawl space. Keystone Basement Systems has your back with a comprehensive solution. We install a perimeter drainage system and sump pump tailored specifically for your crawl space, effectively stopping water from infiltrating and causing damage.

 

Chapter 2: Preventing Moisture Seepage

 

Moisture is the nemesis of crawl spaces, leading to mold growth, wood rot, and unwanted pest infestations. The CleanSpace® vapor barrier is the hero of this story. This heavy-duty 20-mil reinforced polymer liner not only covers the crawl space floor but also the walls. The best part? It comes with a 25-year warranty against rips and tears, ensuring long-lasting protection. With CleanSpace, your crawl space transforms into a dry, healthy environment, perfect for safe storage.

 

Chapter 3: Sealing Air Leaks

 

Crawl space vents might seem innocent, but they're culprits in letting in humid outside air that raises humidity levels inside, creating a breeding ground for mold and pests. Keystone Basement Systems has a solution for this too. Our insulated CleanSpace® vent covers will keep your crawl space dry and pest-free. They never rot or need paint, and they create an airtight seal against unconditioned outside air. We don't stop there; we also seal the rim joist and all penetrations to the outside, leaving no room for unwanted intruders.

 

Chapter 4: Conditioning the Air

 

To complete the transformation, we offer two options for conditioning the air in your crawl space. The SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier is your best friend when it comes to controlling humidity levels. It's specifically designed for basements and crawl spaces, ensuring your crawl space stays dry. The Crawl-O-Sphere fan adds conditioned air from your central air conditioning system to further enhance the dryness.

 

Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation:

  1. More Comfortable Living Conditions: Say goodbye to that damp feeling in the summer and cold floors in the winter. A sealed crawl space keeps your home cozy year-round.

  2. Improved Air Quality: Vented crawl spaces can negatively impact the air inside your home. Encapsulation ensures cleaner, healthier air throughout your living space.

  3. Greater Energy Efficiency: According to Advanced Energy's study, sealed crawl spaces can reduce energy usage by up to 20%. That's not just good for your wallet; it's good for the environment too.

  4. Usable Storage Space: Your crawl space, once sealed with CleanSpace, becomes a clean, bright storage area. No more worries about belongings being ruined by moisture, mold, termites, or pests.

  5. Fewer Pest Problems: Crawl space encapsulation acts as a barrier, keeping out pests and wood-destroying insects. Your home becomes a fortress against unwanted intruders.

Keystone Basement Systems' 4-Step Crawl Space Encapsulation System is a testament to their commitment to creating healthier, more comfortable homes. It's not just an investment in your property; it's an investment in your well-being. Make the smart choice and transform your crawl space today! 🏡
