Crawl space Encapsulation

crawlspace encapsulation - encapsulated crawlspace

The “Cadillac of crawl space services” is complete encapsulation, in which a thick layer of plastic, together with drains and other measures, protect your home fully from issues arising from excess water in the crawlspace.

Encapsulation is the process of completely sealing the crawl space from the outside environment. This includes: cleaning and sealing the space, adding a vapor barrier, insulating the walls and installing an HVAC duct boot or a dehumidifer. The result is a cleaner, dryer area that resists mold, mildew, rot and pests.

A full crawl space encapsulation is one of the best investments you can make in the long-term health of your home.

Full encapsulation is a comprehensive moisture management system that will create the ideal conditions in the crawl space. This involves creating a full drainage plan for surface runoff and soil moisture, and then completely sealing the crawl space against moisture entry.

We cover the floor with a high quality vapor barrier that is sealed at the seams and against the walls and support piers.

All points of airflow between the crawl space and both indoor and outdoor air are sealed, and new insulation is installed.

If needed, a mold treatment is applied, and afterwards a high-quality dehumidifier is installed to remove excess humidity.

The end result is a crawl space that is protected against mold, moisture, and other water entry.

The advantages of crawlspace encapsulation can include:
  • Better indoor air quality
  • Warmer floors
  • Lower humidity
  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Prevention of pest infestations
  • Greater resistance to mold
