Crawlspace encapsulation is just a fancy term that is used to explain the process of lining your crawlspace to provide it with an extra protective barrier against moisture. It usually involves a technique where one lines the foundational walls and floors of the crawlspace. You then cover this lining with a thick sheet of polyethylene plastic. To find out firsthand if this is the ideal solution for your crawlspace, please continue reading, or you can pick up the phone and give us a call. Our experts are always ready to assist where they can to ensure you get nothing but the best.
We still can't believe people are asking us this question. Of course, it is a good idea to have your crawlspace encapsulated. The simple fact of the matter is that moisture and water vapor can cause major structural issues if one decides to ignore them. This moisture will eventually cause your wooden frames and flooring to rot. It is also a fantastic way to keep all sorts of insects and critters at bay. If you are still struggling to see the value this solution can provide, why not give us a call so we can share more of the magic with you.
