Hydraliner for Crawl Spaces
Hydraway is a supplier of hydraliner, a true vapor encapsulation system that provides a taped and sealed barrier between the home and a range of outside threats.
Damp crawl spaces and basements are breeding grounds for anything from dangerous mold to rodents and insects. Basements and crawl spaces are prone to retaining moisture, often bringing the humidity level in these areas to over 50%. When humidity reaches high levels, significant problems like mold become much more common. Simply put, mold can’t grow well when humidity levels are low. And because these are also commonly low-light areas, these challenges are more likely to emerge.
Hydraliner changes that by providing a barrier that’s impenetrable to water vapor and mold alike. Hydraliner transforms crawl spaces with a taped and sealed surface that’s resistant to damage and isolates your living space from your damp crawlspace.
A poorly ventilated crawl space is a breeding ground for mold. While difficult to notice during its earliest stages, there are common signs of mold problems that homeowners should be aware of, including:
These crawl space issues are expensive to repair, and mold removal services cost as high as $4,000 or more if air ducts are affected. Failure to address condensation problems in crawl spaces leads to allergic reactions and worsens asthma symptoms.
Hydraliner is an effective, flexible moisture and vapor control system that can be installed in almost any space and on any surface. Whether your crawl space has a solid floor, gravel, or dirt, Hydraliner provides the same benefits. While Hydraliner’s clean white look won’t exactly transform your crawl space into a fully livable space, it will make the area more attractive. Dirt or gravel floors aren’t typically described as clean, but Hydraliner changes that. Plus, it’s not damaged or torn easily, meaning it’s completely different from conventional liner systems or plastic vapor barriers.
The Hydraliner encapsulation system is a leading choice for contractors because it provides the following benefits:
The Hydraliner panels are flexible and can be installed on any surface in almost any space.
Hydraliner prevents air from escaping by completely insulating crawl spaces, improving energy efficiency and reducing utility bills.
Our Hyrdraliner panels are built to be puncture resistant and don’t tear easily.
The bright white finish creates a friendlier environment by brightening crawl spaces with limited lighting.
Hydraliner can be installed along basement walls or on dirt crawl space floors. We can create an environment as dry as any finished basement, and the bright white color moves the space closer to a true living area. The applications underneath hardwood flooring and along concrete or dirt walls create a durable moisture and vapor barrier that protects the integrity of a structure.
Traditional vapor liner systems are often made of cheap plastic materials that are unattractive and prone to damage. Even one rip or tear completely defeats the purpose of a moisture and vapor blocking layer. Why not save the trouble and choose a solution that will last for the life of your crawl space?
