How much do you spend on storage?

Americans as a whole spend 22 Billion dollars on storage.  Think about how much money you spend each year on storage.  Is it really a reasonable expense?  There are other options.  If you have a home with a crawl space that is one place you could store things.  Most people don’t even use that extra space because it is musty, damp, dirty, or it doesn’t have a concrete ground.  There is a solution!

Concrete Crawlspaces will encapsulate your crawl space with concrete, a vapor barrier and spray foam insulation.  These three things will keep the crawl space clean and free of contaminants.  It will actually make it a pleasant place to be. 

If you had 1,000 extra square feet in your home for storage what would you do with it?  If you would like more information you can request it from Concrete Crawlspaces and they will even come out and give you a free inspection.

Why Repair Your Crawl Space?

More often than not people would rather fix an outside appearance of a home.  Does that make any rational sense to you?  Are you the type of person that would rather have a new deck in back than a crawl space free of allergens and moisture?  Me personally when it comes to my home I like to do 2 big projects a year.  One on the inside and one on the outside is my motto.  This year I added a new heating system to my pool and extended my kitchen.  So why repair the crawl space?

 

You should repair the crawl space because if your crawl space is unfinished with only a dirt, gravel, stone or sand finish you leave an exposed area for pests into your home.  This unfinished surface is a breeding ground for mold and in Illinois there is a very large amount of radon gas.  The radon gas can cause cancer.  Mold causes asthmas and when people live in the home that already have allergies it increases the chance for issues. 

 

Repair your crawl space and protect your home.  It is that simple.  You increase the value of the home by adding a finished surface down there and it also will give you a great place to store your things.  For a free estimate on your crawl space check out Concrete Crawlspaces and repair your crawl space today!

Plastic and Concrete!

Do you know the difference between polyolefin and polyethylene?  Did you know there were different types of plastics available?  A lot of people think plastic is plastic and that is just not the case.  Polyethylene is the most common plastic and it is used as a vapor barrier by the competition.  It typically is only 4-mil thick and it will break down over time especially when concrete is poured over it.  The corrosive agents in the concrete like lime will eat through the non treated plastic and eventually there will be no vapor barrier. 

 

When you use plastic under concrete you need to use a stronger plastic.  That is why Concrete Crawlspaces uses polyolefin.  When combining plastic and concrete there has to be something protecting the plastic.  Our vapor matt is chemically treated to protect from break down.  It is 10-mil thick, over twice as thick as our competitors.  The plastic we use under the concrete will last the lifetime of the home and we stand by that by offering a lifetime transferrable warranty.

 

Other companies don’t use concrete at all and they just do layers of the polyethylene, 4-mil, plastic.  This method will never last the lifetime of the home and will always fail.  From over 30 years of experience using a 10-mil chemically treated plastic and concrete we know our way works and will always work.  For more information on a real solution get a free estimate here!
