Crawl Space Encapsulation
Homeowners with a crawl space should keep their eyes open for potential problems. If your crawl space is susceptible to the natural elements, there is a greater chance of needed repairs. One of the most common types of crawl space repair is known as encapsulation. This process completely closes off the space from the outside by using a system of heavy-duty liners and a sturdy, waterproof door.
At Rapid-Dri Foundation Systems, our professionals provide exceptional services to customers dealing with crawl space issues. If your home is suffering from mold, soft floors, wet insulation or insect problems, encapsulating a crawl space is the best way to ensure the area is protected from both weather and animals. Once we’ve encapsulated your crawl space, we can control any excess humidity and prevent the dangerous growth of mold and mildew.
When we perform crawl space encapsulation, we use vapor barriers on the walls and floors of the area. This heavy-duty plastic liner prevents water and humidity from entering when it rains. Because of a vapor barrier’s strength and durability, the crawl space can still be used for storage upon installation. If there are still humidity issues after encapsulation, we can install a dehumidifier specially designed for crawl space environments. Humidity is then controlled and future damage prevented.
