Cover exposed soil in crawl space

$25-$50 Est. time: 30 - 45mins Medium
A

Tasks and Notes

A
Cover exposed dirt around support pier.

Description

The entire dirt floor of a crawl space should be covered with heavy black plastic to prevent ground moisture from evaporating into the crawl space. The black plastic should be the top layer, ie: not covered with drain rock.

If Not Addressed

Ground moisture that seeps into the dirt under the house will evaporate, if it does not have a barrier to minimize this (Visqueen) and a method to vent moist air (crawl space venting) the wood of the structure will be exposed to rot from moist conditions.

Estimated Costs

This is a very simple job that shouldn’t take much time, money or effort. Could be done in combination with another crawl space project.
