Sealed Crawl Spaces and Sealed & Conditioned Crawl Spaces
We offer two options for crawl space encapsulation. The standard option is sealing, and if you want a more comprehensive solution, you can choose sealing and conditioning. Continue reading for more information about these methods and their advantages.
Sealed Crawl Spaces
Sealing a crawl space creates a clean area that resists damage from humidity. Crawl space sealing involves fixing or replacing damaged insulation, then placing a heavy-duty string-reinforced poly material and ensuring all foundation walls and posts are covered. Overlapping the seams and sealing them off with industry-specific tape ensures full coverage.
We then place a dehumidifier in the crawl space to keep the humidity down to acceptable levels and route the drain hose outside in the most appropriate manner for your home.
Sealed & Conditioned Crawl Spaces
Conditioning a sealed crawl space takes moisture defense up a notch. We insulate the foundation walls and remove floor insulation to make your crawl space an extension of your home. The conditioning process involves creating an air supply from your HVAC system so that your crawl space remains the same temperature as your home.
Sealing and conditioning your crawl space creates a clean area with no negative impact on your indoor air quality, and the complete heat and air seal keeps your bills down.
