Crawlspace Encapsulation

Crawl­space Encapsulation

Crawl­space water­proof­ing tends to fol­low the same rules as base­ment water­proof­ing. The only dif­fer­ence is that you nor­mal­ly can’t stand upright in a crawl­space as you could in a full-depth base­ment. The walls can leak and a water table can still cause hydro­sta­t­ic pres­sure. Some crawl­spaces have poured con­crete floors and some are left with dirt or grav­el. Since most crawl­spaces are ignored to a cer­tain degree, it is like­ly that this area is the unhealth­i­est area in the home.

Crawl­space encap­su­la­tions are a cost effec­tive way to cre­ate a health­i­er envi­ron­ment for a home. Amer­i­cans today are striv­ing for health­i­er fam­i­lies and health­i­er homes. Some com­mon symp­toms of a crawl­space are leak­age, mold, mois­ture dam­age from weath­er, humid­i­ty or con­den­sa­tion, musty odors, insects or rodents. Most crawl­space issues are noticed in the spring or sum­mer sea­sons when it is humid. Crawl­space encap­su­la­tion is not effec­tive unless you address the water first.
