What is Crawl Space Drainage Matting?
Crawl space drainage matting—a crucial component in the battle against moisture—is a robust, dimpled mat designed to rest beneath your home.
This is no ordinary mat; it’s crafted from high-density polyethylene, creating an effective pathway that guides unwanted water toward a drainage system. It’s a physical layer that aids in water management and contributes to the overall health of your home.
When combined with other waterproofing measures, encapsulation, and dehumidification, drainage matting is part of a whole-home solution that addresses existing water issues and prevents future problems, preserving the structure and air quality of your living space. The matting also reinforces the floor for easier access and storage when placed beneath a vapor barrier.
