Crawl Space Encapsulation
Crawlspaces are typical targets of moisture intrusion. The root causes could be poor exterior drainage resulting in seepage, leaks, water vapor intrusion from missing, damaged or improperly installed vapor barriers, or insufficient air exchange.
Moisture Control Solutions are designed uniquely for each situation as not one solution is always the right answer. Simpler solutions can be the proper installation of a vapor barrier while more complex solutions could include mechanically conditioning the space or applying waterproofing solutions where required.
Given the fact that crawlspace air is oftentimes drawn into a home either through penetrations for plumbing or electrical lines or leaks in the air duct system, maintaining a properly dry crawlspace is a critical component in ensuring a healthy living space above it.
