Crawl Spaces and Moisture Damage
Excessive water can cause significant damage to crawlspaces if not properly addressed. What you need: Helitech’s Crawl Space Encapsulation System.
Heavy rains, lack of ventilation, and inefficient drainage are primary causes of potentially damaging moisture in crawlspaces. Expensive and dangerous damage can be done if left alone over time. These issues include:
- Rodents, termites, and other critters
- Rotting wood and structural issues
- Mold that is severely dangerous to your health
- Standing water
- Reduced home value
Helitech’s Crawlspace Encapsulation System is designed to separate your home from the earth below entirely. Oftentimes, crawlspaces and basements will retain water or moisture, which can create potential rot. Helitech will provide complete protection for your home and family’s health.
In a crawlspace, humidity levels can range from 50%-90%. These are the perfect conditions for mold to grow which can generate toxins harmful to you and your family. Helitech’s encapsulation system will help prevent mold in and around your home, leaving fewer allergens in the air.
Helitech’s encapsulation serves as a blockade to invasive animals such as termites, beetles, rodents, or snakes. These invasive animals can cause damage to exposed wood, thus putting your home at greater risk.
Our encapsulation system is a complete water protection system that can be installed in your crawl space. These areas of your home often retain moisture, bringing humidity levels to well over 50%, and combined with low lighting, they are ideal places for mold and other bacteria to thrive. The Crawlspace Encapsulation System prevents the possibility of these growths.
Our system is a thick material, similar to what is used to line swimming pools. It actually consists of several layers of high-density polyethylene, low-density polyethylene, and two layers of polyester cord.
Helitech’s encapsulation is tough and puncture-resistant. You can crawl on it, service technicians can crawl on it, and you can store any item on it. Helitech will transform your former unusable crawlspace into a clean, dry, and ample storage space for your home.
Our crawl space encapsulation completely resists moisture penetration and stops unwanted insects and rodents. The white finish will actually brighten your crawl space with limited light, creating a friendlier storage environment.

I wanted to send a note to let you know how much my family and I appreciate the work that your employees did at our home. In this historic flood, the river is currently touching our foundation and, while MANY in our neighborhood (and others we know) have flooded basements, ours remains completely dry. The pump you installed is running almost non-stop and the back-up in the secondary sump hole is kicking on periodically. Your knowledgeable workers did an excellent job installing the system I believe 3 years ago, which has well exceeded our expectations. The fact that they worked on the evening of New Year’s Eve to get the job done, is a testament to your company’s (and your employees’) personal commitment to your customer. My wife and I were just talking last night about how thankful we are for having invested in the Helitech Waterproofing System. Thanks again for the work that has protected our home from what could have been devastating water damage. Please feel free to use this letter as a customer testimonial as we’ve recommended your company to many of our family, friends, and coworkers.
