What is Crawl Space Drainage Matting?

Crawl space drainage matting is a sturdy, dimpled mat engineered to lie beneath your home on the crawl space floor. More than just a mat, it’s constructed from durable high-density polyethylene and 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 installed alongside other waterproofing methods, encapsulation, and dehumidification, drainage matting forms a comprehensive solution for current and future water issues, bolstering structural integrity and enhancing your home’s air quality. The mat additionally supports the floor, strengthens the vapor barrier, and creates a more functional crawl space for potential storage.
