Encapsulation of the crawl space is a vital part of the process; this has a major impact on the health and safety and air quality of the home. In order to properly seal a crawl space every seam must be sealed and the vapor barrier must be run up the exterior walls and sealed to the walls.
We have installed hundreds of these systems and the results are phenomenal. Encapsulation systems prevent moisture from entering the home and this has a big impact on the air quality along with preventing any chance of mold growth. Mold needs two things to grow: Moisture and an organic product (such as wood and paper) remove the moisture and the wood or paper cannot grow mold.
We offer a wide variety of encapsulation systems, 6-mil poly, 10-mil poly up to 20-mil poly. The products that we use are virgin poly and they will not break down over time like the older vapor barriers that most people or companies install.
Encapsulation systems along with spray foaming the crawl space walls and rim joist will totally change the feel of the rooms above the crawl space.
