What is Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Crawl space encapsulation refers to the process of waterproofing, insulating, and sealing the crawl space to eliminate moisture and high humidity issues. The combination of installing an effective drainage system, insulating the crawl space, sealing floors and walls, and adequately dehumidifying the air not only prevents groundwater or wall moisture from entering the crawl space, but it also regulates crawl space humidity and temperature, often making it the most regulated and climate-controlled area in your home!
What Are the Benefits of Encapsulating Your Crawl Space?

What’s the Difference Between a Standard Vapor Barrier and a Total Encapsulation?
Installing a standard mil vapor barrier overtop the soil in your. Crawl Space is a first step towards improving the quality of your crawl space. With the installation of a standard vapor barrier, the exposed soil in the crawl space is covered with a standard mil vapor barrier to trap the excess soil moisture. However, even with the vapor barrier and an interior drain system, you likely will still have a noticeable amount of excess moisture under your house due to crawlspace vents and the foundation walls absorbing exterior moisture.
With the installation of a total encapsulation system, we will seal the walls and the floors with a puncture resistant vapor barrier. We offer 8, 12, & 20mil depending on your price range. The seams on the walls and the flooring vapor barrier will be sealed. Next we seal any crawl space doors and vents, as these can allow moisture and unregulated air to enter. Once the encapsulation is installed, we will install a dehumidification system. The end result is a crawl space that is completely isolated from humidity, moisture, water intrusion, and is no longer the nasty mess your crawl space once was.
Vapor barrier / debris removal/Insulation
We offer crawl space rehabilitation. When faced with a nasty damp crawl space, we will remove all of the debris / trash and install standard 6mil vapor barrier.
