Exposed crawl spaces can be detrimental to your home.
Having exposed dirt and soil under your home allows for dampness to form, which can cause wood rot, mold, odors, and sagging floors, damaging your home’s structure. Because crawl spaces are exposed earth you can also lose heat through the soil, making your floors cold in the winter and costing you more money heating your home. Any crawl space with standing water may also need a pumping system and possibly drainage. Dehumidification in a crawlspace or basement is always a must to keep your basement dry ALL the time. With our crawl space encapsulation system, we install a non-organic vapor barrier to the foundation walls and crawl space floor, separating your home from exposed earth, insects, and critters.
WHY ENCAPSULATE YOUR CRAWL SPACE?
Long-Term Savings & Protection
Crawl Space Encapsulation Installation
A sealed crawl space is essential to a comfortable, energy-efficient, and healthy home. Installation of a crawl space encapsulation system can help you achieve these things. The first step in installation is to clean the area and remove any debris. Next, a moisture barrier is installed on the floor and walls. This barrier will protect your home from moisture, mold, and mildew. Finally, a ventilation system is installed to ensure that the air in your home is fresh and circulating properly. A crawl space encapsulation system is an investment in your home that will pay off for years to come.
Benefits of encapsulating a crawl space
No Moisture, No Critters, No Problems
There are numerous benefits of encapsulating your crawl space. A sealed crawl space prevents dampness from evaporating through the dirt floor. This can help prevent the presence of mold in your home and therefore improve your home’s air quality. Sealed crawl spaces also help insulate your floors so they stay warm in the winter, therefore saving on utility costs. Finally, sealed crawl spaces help prevent pest and insect infestations in your home.
How much does it cost to encapsulate a crawl space?
A crawl space is an area of your home that is usually not insulated or finished like the rest of the home. Many times there is only a dirt floor, which can lead to all sorts of problems like drafts, pests, and moisture. If you want to improve the efficiency of your home and make your crawl space more livable, you may want to consider encapsulation. Homeowners can expect to pay anywhere from $2,000 to $4,500 on average to encapsulate a crawl space. This involves sealing off the crawl space with a vapor barrier and adding insulation to the floors and walls. The cost of encapsulation will vary depending on the size of the space and the materials used, but it is generally a relatively inexpensive project that can have a big impact on your home.
