Hinsdale is a quaint village in Illinois that is in the top 1% of the wealthiest towns in the state. Known for its beautiful homes, the village is a teardown culture with over 30% of homes being new rebuilds. But no matter how beautiful your home is, it’s prone to some nasty crawl space moisture issues unless protected.
Given the cold winters, hot summers, and common thunderstorms in the area, Hinsdale can experience a deal of precipitation each year. Combined with unfortunate accidents with piping, or maybe with the water table, many crawl spaces can develop moisture issues.
The effects of moisture can range from emitting a musty smell, growth of mildew and fungus (which can cause health issues), to rotting wooden posts, and degradation of your foundation. In short, it can get from mild to serious in a hurry.
Solutions to Crawl Space Moisture
To ensure your home is safe, your crawl space must be made waterproofed. By calling a Perma-Seal professional, they will ensure your crawl space is encapsulated well with a vapor barrier to prevent moisture seepage, and they will also repair whatever cracks in the wall there may be, and even pour concrete on the floor to ensure maximum protection.
Crawl space waterproofing can be simple or comprehensive, depending on how protected you want to be. Oh, and a professional can also track the sources of your moisture issues and address those problems to make sure you don’t suffer from them ever again.
Benefits to Hinsdale Homeowners
It doesn’t matter if you live in a mansion or a simple cottage, if your crawl space isn’t waterproofed, you’ll be living with the same risks. Structural integrity can be compromised and the health of your family will be affected too, so be sure your home is protected well with proper crawl space waterproofing.
