The purpose of encapsulation is to eliminate the threat of mold from your crawl space. Encapsulation is a perfect solution to rid your home of moisture, save money on energy bills and prevent health-related issues. Water and moisture can be a constant problem under your home. Even when moisture is removed from a crawl space, it is only a temporary solution and will last a short period of time. Eventually, the soil will become re-hydrated, and water will once again collect inside of your crawl space until the issue has been fully resolved. Everything from heavy rainstorms to humid summers can create problems in your crawl space.
With crawl space encapsulation, the crawl space is covered with a 20 millimeter reinforced polyethylene vapor barrier, which completely prevents water vapor from flowing above the soil and/or from foundation walls. This process directs water to a specific location for collection and draining. Lastly, at the drainage point, we install a sump pump to remove any excess water. It is expelled through a drain pipe at a minimum of five feet from the foundation walls.
The crawl space encapsulation water vapor barrier solution is not only affordable, but it is also extremely durable and puncture-resistant. The vapor barrier is 300-600% thicker than a standard plastic vapor barrier that a typical builder might install. Additionally, to ensure that all seams are sealed airtight, we utilize specialized high strength tape specifically designed for this application. This is a long-lasting solution you can rely on.
