Crawlspace encapsulation is a simple way to keep water out of your crawlspace. During this process, a technician from our team at Dry Foundation Technologies will cover the crawlspace with a heavy vapor barrier. This barrier will seal up the crawlspace, keeping moisture out. Once the barrier is in place, you will start to notice all of the benefits.
- Keeps Pests Out- Pests are a real menace when they’re inside crawlspaces. They chew wood, dig holes, and create smells that seep into the home through the vents. By keeping the moisture out, crawlspace encapsulation makes crawlspaces much less attractive to pests. In addition, it is difficult for pests to get through the vapor barrier, so they find someplace else to move to.
- Protects the Home’s Structural Integrity- Your home’s structural integrity is very important. If it is compromised, you can expect to deal with costly repairs. When your crawlspace is wet, it can actually hurt your foundation. Crawlspace encapsulation keeps the soil dry, which in turn protects the home’s foundation.
- Conserves Energy- If you don’t like to spend a lot of money on your energy bill, check out crawlspace encapsulation. When you don’t have a lot of hot and humid air in your crawlspace, your air conditioner is able to cool your home more efficiently. This saves you some cash.
