Crawl Space Encapsulation in Raleigh

If you're like most homeowners, you want a clean, healthy, energy-efficient home, but if you're ignoring your crawl space, any steps you take to improve your home won't be effective. Crawl space encapsulation is key to improving air quality, minimizing pollutants, and increasing the efficiency of your home. Crawl Space & Basement Technologies will address and eliminate the sources of moisture and create a sealed, dry space under your home that will last a lifetime.

Why You Need to Seal Your Crawl Space

Encapsulating, or sealing your crawl space is necessary to eliminate moisture under your home and the problems that come with it. Rain, snow, and sprinkler systems saturate the soil around your homes foundation. The moisture in the soil evaporates into your crawl space while the negative pressure of the home draws hot, humid air from outside into the the crawlspace. The combination of moisture sources creates a damp, stagnant space under your home that's a breeding ground for the following problems:

  • Foul oders
  • Mold growth
  • Attracting pests, including spiders, roaches, and termites
  • Rotting and warping wooden floor joists and sub-floors
  • Buckled hardwood floors

By sealing the crawl space, moisture can't evaporate under your home and hot, humid air can't seep in through cracks and voids in your foundation, thus keeping the space clean, dry, and free of the problems moisture can cause.

How the Crawl Space Affects Your Home's Air Quality

Around 60 percent of the air on the first floor of your home enters through the crawl space by way of leaks in your duct work, small gaps, and voids in your floor and subfloor. All the bacteria, mold spores, and stagnant odors that are under your home are also penetrating your living spaces while the heated and cooled air from your HVAC unit is seeping down into the crawl space. Respiratory problems, skin issues, headaches, and allergies can often be attributed to poor air quality coming from your crawl space.

Understanding How Crawl Space Encapsulation Works

Crawl space encapsulation is an intensive process designed to completely seal the area under your home while still making the crawl space useable. Our experienced technicians put down a thick layer of vinyl sheeting on the ground under your home to eliminate any moisture from evaporating from the soil. This is not just adding a vapor barrier, we carry the sealing process up the walls of the crawl space. This prevents moisture from seeping in through the block walls as well as sealing the vents that allow hot, humid air from entering. A crawl space encapsulation contractor from our experienced team will also determine if an interior drainage system is necessary for additional waterproofing.

Why Choose Crawl Space Encapsulation?

If you're not sure if sealing your crawl space is necessary, consider these eight key reasons to choose encapsulation:

  1. Eliminate vapor transmission. Crawl space encapsulation stops the air from your crawl space from going into your home and thus, minimizing "dirty" air from entering your living spaces.
  2. Reduce humidity through your entire home. Moisture under the home raises the humidity level through your living spaces and makes it difficult to maintain healthy relative humidity levels of around 30 to 50 percent.
  3. Minimize or eliminate mold growth. Moisture leads to mold and mildew, and if mold spores are growing under your home, they can also travel into your living spaces. Crawl space sealing prevents mold growth under your home which means there are no spores that will enter your home from the crawl space.
  4. Create a healthier home. High humidity, mold, and mildew can trigger allergies and respiratory problems. A cleaner crawl space means you'll have improved air quality throughout your home.
  5. Eliminate and prevent pests. Termites, rodents, and other pests seek out sources of moisture that can often be found in crawl spaces. Sealing the space keeps pests out!
  6. Reduce moisture damage. High humidity, mold, and moisture can rot or warp wood as well as attract termites and lead to expensive, dangerous structural damage. Sealing the area under the home preserves the structural integrity  for years to come.
  7. Minimize energy costs. By working with our crawl space encapsulation contractors in Raleigh, your home can see a major drop in your energy bills. Sealing the space prevents cold and hot air from entering as well as stops your heated and cooled air from your home from leaving.
  8. Enjoy peace of mind. When you know your home is cleaner, healthier, and free of pests and other problems, you can feel more confident and worry less about your house. Less worry is always a good thing!
