What is a Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Free Crawl Space Inspection

Regain control over your home's air quality, humidity and energy consumption with our expert Crawl Space Restoration Services. Crawl space encapsulation is a home improvement method where the crawl space beneath a house is sealed off from external moisture and air. This process involves lining the floors and walls of the crawl space with a durable, moisture-resistant barrier, often made of heavy-duty plastic. All vents and gaps that might allow air and pests to enter are also securely sealed. In some cases, a dehumidifier is installed to control humidity levels, ensuring the area remains dry and free from mold growth. This sealing effectively protects the home’s foundation from moisture damage, improves indoor air quality, and can even help in reducing energy costs by maintaining more consistent indoor temperatures.

We provide complimentary home energy audits and crawl space inspections. During these inspections, we'll measure humidity levels, check for any signs of growth, evaluate your insulation and ductwork, examine for air leaks, and more. Following the assessment, we'll provide a free, no-obligation quote tailored to your specific needs and budget. Our goal is to offer solutions that will ensure a healthy, comfortable, and safe environment beneath your home. Schedule your Free Inspection today!

Crawl Space Encapsulation Pros & Benefits:

  • The air quality in your home will dramatically increase. Since the air from underneath your home can no longer find its way inside, you will no longer be breathing in the outside dust and allergens! Many of our customers have noticed a huge decrease in allergy flare ups.
  • Significantly lessen the opportunity for insects to enter the home. The encapsulated crawl space creates a barrier that reduces the risk of termite and bug infestations by making the area inhospitable to pests. This seal also limits their access through cracks and crevices from the crawl space to the floor. Not only does this keep out unpleasant insects, but it also helps prevent serious issues like termite damage.
  • Less moisture means less mold growth. By fixing the humidity levels in your home and underneath the crawl, you create an environment that mold and other spores simply cannot survive in. This will also help to provide odor elimination.
  • Increase your home’s energy efficiency therefore lowering your energy bill. If there are air leaks in your crawl space, it could be costing you money on your utility bills. By encapsulating the crawl and sealing duct work, you could decrease the amount of money you are spending on your bills each month. If the air underneath your home is hot and humid, your air conditioner will have to work that much harder just to get the home to a temperature that is comfortable.
  • Improve your comfort. Did you know that around 40%-60% of the air that enters your home comes from your crawl space? An encapsulated crawlspace can help with fixing that clammy and damp feeling inside the home during the heat of the summer.
  • Increase your home value. Crawl Space Encapsulations are an investment! If you ever sell your home, this added feature will be attractive for buyers.

What is Involved in a Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Crawl space encapsulation services are designed to seal the crawl space, protecting it from moisture and improving the air quality within the home. Here is an overview of what this process might entail, depending on the existing condition of the home and crawl space:

  • Mold and Moisture Removal: Before beginning the encapsulation process, it's essential to resolve any pre-existing issues like mold or water damage.
  • Water Drainage Systems: If required, an effective drainage system, such as a sump pump, will be installed under the home to handle and eliminate any water-related problems.
  • Vapor Barrier Installation: The floors and walls of the crawl space are covered with a thick material that blocks moisture and mold growth. This barrier is securely sealed along all seams and affixed to the walls, forming a solid, impermeable layer that stops moisture from the ground and external air from penetrating the area.
  • Air Sealing Cracks and Gaps: All vents and openings are sealed to prevent humid air, allergens, and pests from entering the crawl space.
  • Insulation: Crawl spaces may be insulated if needed to help maintain a consistent temperature within the space and the floors above it.
  • Whole Home Dehumidifier Installation: In many cases, a dehumidifier is installed to control the moisture level within the encapsulated crawl space & home, further preventing mold and mildew growth.
  • Pest & Termite Prevention: The encapsulated crawl space and material reduces the chance of termite or bug infestations by creating an environment that is inhospitable to pests.
  • Custom Crawl Space Door: At GSM Services, a custom crawl space door is offered, designed not only to enhance the aesthetic appeal but also to improve energy efficiency under your home.
