You probably don’t spend much time hanging out in your basement or crawl space, but it’s one of the most important parts of your home. Problems with your crawl space or basement can impact the health, comfort, and energy efficiency of your entire Chesapeake Bay home.
Total Home Performance offers a full range of basement and crawl space services to protect your home’s foundation, many of which qualify for savings through the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program!
Why Do You Need Crawl Space or Basement Services?
Many of the issues that plague homeowners in the Chesapeake Bay area start in their basements and crawl spaces. Moisture problems, mold growth, pest infestation, poor indoor air quality, high energy bills, and even structural damage can all be caused by a poorly maintained crawl space or basement.
If you don’t take action, your basement or crawl space will leak humidity and moisture, as well as musty odors, into your living spaces—air that’s not only unpleasant but also unhealthy. It will also allow heated and cooled air to escape, wasting energy and hiking up utility bills.
Protecting your home’s foundation with the right basement or crawl space services from Total Home Performance will lead to a healthier, more comfortable, and more energy efficient home. Our services will also help control humidity and bulk water problems, preventing water damage and structural damage.
The team at Total Home Performance will inspect your crawl space for possible bulk water problems, combustion appliance issues, and pests before we begin making any improvements. If any of these exist, we will help you address them before encapsulation for the safest and most effective solution. Once encapsulated, your crawl space will maintain a more even temperature relative to the ground and your home, controlling humidity and improving indoor air quality while decreasing your energy consumption.
