The thin plastic covering has allowed for dirt and water vapor to get into the crawl space. This raises the humidity and can harm the insulation above if it gets wet.
Obvious mold growth as a complication of high humidity and no waterproofing was scattered throughout this crawl space.
This crawl space was very inconsistent on how it chose to protect itself from water vapor and water intrusion. In this corner there was no effective protection at all.
With a proper vapor barrier installed and wrapped up interior supports, this crawl space is much more protected from water vapor and high humidity.
Protection from water intrusion was also important for this crawl space. Our waterproofing system runs underneath our vapor barrier to catch the water as its coming in and before it can cause issues inside.
With our system in place and spray foam insulation put along the walls and key spots, it no longer made sense to keep the interior insulation because it would eventually fall out and allow air to slip inside. This way the crawl space is protected from the outside weather and runs more efficiently.
Mold was growing on the floor joists inside this crawl space, and water was getting inside as well. This crawl space had very ineffective protection against water vapor and water intrusion. We installed our patented products designed for crawl space protection and changed the look and efficiency of it.
