Encapsulation System

Encapsulating your crawl space is a preventive maintenance measure that helps keep the air inside your house clean, dry, and free from musty odors. Using our crawl space encapsulation solution, you can reap the benefits without tearing out any interior walls. When we take care of your crawl space and its moisture problems, you can be assured that your home’s indoor climate will stay comfortable even during the warmer months that have high relative humidity.

What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Crawl space encapsulation is the addition of a heavy-duty moisture barrier to the interior or exterior of a crawl space. The primary purpose of this extra layer of protection is to prevent any moisture from entering through cracks around the outside of the foundation walls. Added insulation between the exterior wall and floor joists prevents heat loss when the warm air rises.

Should I Encapsulate My Crawl Space?

In most cases, it is recommended that homeowners encapsulate their crawl spaces if they have a problem with excess moisture to prevent mold, wood rot, and structural damage. You may also benefit from encapsulation when:

  • Your home has high indoor humidity.
  • You live in an area with a high chance of flooding.
  • You have mildew and mold growth in the crawl space.
  • There are no vents near the crawl space.

These conditions can indicate that your crawl space needs to be sealed off with a proper encapsulation system.

Crawl space encapsulation can benefit your home in many ways, including:

  • Greater energy efficiency
  • Fewer allergy problems
  • Fewer pest problems
  • More comfortable living conditions
  • Extra storage space
