What is Crawl Space Drainage Matting?

Combined with other waterproofing methods, encapsulation, and dehumidification, this matting forms part of a comprehensive solution. It addresses current water issues and prevents future complications, safeguarding your home’s structure and air quality. Additionally, the matting strengthens the floor, making it more conducive for storage and access when used under a vapor barrier.
