What is Crawl Space Drainage Matting?

More than just a mat, it’s constructed from durable high-density polyethylene, it directs excess water to a drainage system like a sump pump. It acts as a crucial layer in water management, enhancing the overall health of your home.
When used in conjunction with additional waterproofing methods, encapsulation, and dehumidification, drainage matting forms a comprehensive solution for current and future water issues, safeguarding both the structural integrity and air quality of your living space. The mat additionally supports the floor, making it more conducive for storage and access under a vapor barrier.
