Crawl space Liner


I have been looking into having a crawl space liner installed.

Has anyone seen something like this, or had it done to their house?

thats a NICE install,,,how did they surround or handle the center supports?? How about pipe intrusions??.. That would cut down on humidity wicking from ground,,,and musty smells from dirt etc.

I expect their website to show off their best work. I really want to see a couple of their actual installs .... references if you will.

I won't fork over several thousand $$$ without being able to have a close inspection of what someone else got for similar ca$h expense.

It sure is nice looking, but I'm sure it was a few bucks. I spent $100 on a box of 6 mil poly in my crawlspace and it cut down on the moisture, dampness, and musty smell a lot. It looks like they just split it down the middle and caulked the sheeting to the pier pours.

Perfect examples are nice. I cannot imagine what the cost of this job was, but since the dirt floor seems perfectly flat and level, there was a lot of work done previous to installation. I have 6 Mil plastic in my crawl. I overlapped seams one foot and sealed with tape (duct tape, of course). I also went one foot up the sidewalls. Makes it a lot nicer when I need to work down there and prevents moisture and musty smell.
