Many homes have crawlspaces under them. These areas are prone to water leakage. This is often due to dirt flooring or limited protection from the water around the home.

A liner can be placed to stop all water from entering. A heavy duty liner or dehumidifier can be used for high traffic or high problem crawlspaces.
