Keeping the Construction Industry Going

The construction industry has struggled a bit in recent years. This is not because there's not amazing technology out there to make construction easier. There's tons of technology, and it's amazing! Rather, the struggle seems to be that there is a shortage of labor. Many young people are not as interested in working in construction anymore. We hope that we can do our part to change that. In posting on this blog, we hope to reach a wide audience, including young people who may want to work as contractors. There are excellent jobs in the industry, and learning the basics on this blog can set you up for success.

How's Your Crawl Space? 4 Reasons To Invest In Waterproofing

If you haven't added waterproofing to your crawl space yet, now's the time to do that. If you've got rain gutters and drainage systems, you might not think you need to waterproof the crawl space. That's not the case though. Flood prevention isn't the only reason to waterproof the crawl space under your home. In fact, waterproofing your crawl space offers benefits you might not have considered. Before you pass up the opportunity to protect the crawl space, read the list provided below.

Here are four benefits you'll enjoy when you invest in crawl space waterproofing

Make Space More Hygienic

If you have bare space under your home, it's time to add some waterproofing. Crawl spaces can harbor all kinds of germs and bacteria. In fact, you could have animal waste under your home. This is especially true if there's open access to the crawl space. Animals can crawl under your home, and use the area for their waste. That means bacteria from fecal matter and urine could get into your home. That's where waterproofing comes into the picture. Once the crawl space gets waterproofed, the space will get sealed off. That means animals won't have access to the area.

Reduce Unpleasant Odors

If you've noticed unpleasant odors coming up through the floor, it's time to look inside the crawl space. If the crawl space isn't waterproofed, you could get stuck with a lot of unpleasant odors. Some of those odors include mold, animal waste, and dead carcasses. This is especially true if animals have died while inside the crawl space. Luckily, you can avoid unpleasant odors. You can waterproof the crawl space. Crawl space waterproofing will prevent the problems that can cause foul odors.

Improve the Workspace

If you haven't waterproofed the crawl space yet, it's time to think about your service technicians. Service technicians access the crawl space. This is especially true with regard to plumbing and electrical work. If you haven't waterproofed the crawl space, technicians could work in unsafe conditions. Improve the workspace. Waterproof the crawl space under your home right away. 

Prevent Weed Growth

If you haven't invested in crawl space waterproofing yet, you could have a weed problem under your home. Without waterproofing, moisture can build up under your home. Moist spaces provide the perfect environment for weeds. Unfortunately, it's not easy to remove weeds once they're growing under your home. Stop the moisture, and the weeds. Have your crawl space waterproofed this winter.
