What is crawl space encapsulation?
Crawl space encapsulation is the addition of a heavy-duty moisture barrier to the floor of your crawl space, sealed foundation vents, insulated walls, and a crawl space dehumidifier.
Due to the damp and humid environment, crawl spaces often face a multitude of problems such as sagging floors, mold growth, and excess humidity. Encapsulating your crawl space is one of the most significant changes you will make to your home right now. It’s a straightforward project that will keep moisture and pests out of your home while maintaining structural integrity and indoor air quality.
To fully enclose the crawl space, dense layers of heavy-duty polyethylene are applied to the floors, foundation walls, and sometimes even the roof. Enclosing crawl spaces is an excellent way to keep moisture out and regulate temperature.
Since the materials that allow encapsulation to function were created relatively recently, many homeowners will have this process completed without doing any necessary preparation work first. Here are some of the ways you can properly prepare:
