What is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

The crawlable area under many homes is usually susceptible to water damage and pest/insect infestation. Crawl space encapsulation seals crawl spaces using thick polyethylene plastic to create a vapor barrier that keeps moisture away and related problems like mold and pests.

Signs You May Need Your Crawl Space Encapsulated

Your crawl space requires a vapor barrier if:

You have a mold problem:

High humidity and moisture levels in crawl spaces create perfect grounds for mold.

Moist ground:

If your home sits on moist ground due to drainage problems or evaporation, creating a barrier between the ground and crawl space underneath will keep the crawl space dry.


If your windows, doors, and other surfaces in your home seem to be constantly covered by a vapor, you have excess humidity levels indoors, which may very well be originating from your crawl space.

Unpleasant indoor smell:

Water/moisture problems originating from crawl spaces cause rot, mold, and infestations with a notable musty smell. This sign is therefore accompanied by mold and infestation problems.

Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation

  1. Control Serious Risks

Crawl space encapsulation prevents/stops mold and insect/pest infestation, which are linked to many problems (from diseases to structural collapse).

  1. Energy Saving Benefits

Encapsulated crawl spaces have humidity levels under check. Since indoor air largely comes from crawl spaces, among other areas, it’s easier to control indoor temperatures of homes with sealed crawl spaces.

  1. Improved Air Quality

If you’re concerned about the the air you breathe in your home, crawl space encapsulation will improve indoor air quality and keep your home healthy and comfortable.

  1. Increase the Value of Your Home

If you’re like most homeowners, you’re always looking for ways to increase the value of your home. Well, here’s one easy solution: crawl space encapsulation!

  1. Home Maintenance Benefits

A sealed crawl space is easier to do maintenance, i.e., electrical repairs when wires pass underneath a home.

Be Proactive and Fix Crawl Space Moisture Problems Before Your Crawl Space Needs Mold Remediation

Some signs of water intrusion come way before serious problems arise. For instance, constant wetness in the crawl space is a sure sign of a problem that precedes mold growth. If you see signs of water in your crawlspace, don’t wait for the problem to worsen and get it waterproofed and encapsulation as soon as possible.

Why Hire a Professional Company to Encapsulate Your Crawl Space

Peace of Mind: Crawl space encapsulation isn’t a simple process. However, it determines important factors like the strength of your home’s foundation in the long run. To avoid unnecessary risks and worry, leave encapsulation to experts.

Health and Safety Guarantees: Homes with moisture problems are prone to damage over time. Your home may require experts in structural engineering before you seal your crawl space. You must also think of risks like mold and infestation. Unless you are an expert in mold remediation and pest control, you will be risking your health and safety by doing crawl space encapsulation yourself.

Fastest Solution: Crawl space experts can handle crawl space emergencies quicker than DIY enthusiasts.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please take a moment to read answers to our most frequently asked questions about our services.
Moisture in your crawl area will eventually cause structural damage. The vapor in the crawl space can destroy the timber framing and flooring of your home. Moisture is kept out of the crawl area by encapsulating it. Furthermore, encapsulation aids in the prevention of harmful pests such as termites.
If not previously used, residents who install 15 SEER air conditioners, sealed crawl space systems, radiant barriers in attics, or more insulation may be eligible for a 10% federal tax credit up to $ 500.00.
Encapsulation projects typically range in price from $5,000 to $20,000+ as every crawl space is unique in scope and size. The final cost will be determined by the size and condition of the crawl space. Cleaning and preparing a dusty crawl space with other areas of degradation can take longer.
Even if your homeowners insurance doesn’t cover crawl space encapsulation, it can still be a good investment. It’s a measure that can make it more difficult for standing water to form in the first place, as well as make it easier to drain water that has accumulated in your home’s foundation.

Basement waterproofing is the process of keeping water out of the basement of a house or structure using various methods and materials. Waterproofing a basement below ground level may necessitate the use of sealants, drains, and sump pumps, among other things.
