Why crawl space encapsulation?
30%-50% of the air in your home
comes from the crawl space
If your crawlspace is damp and moldy you will see the following symptoms:
Mold on wood surfaces of the crawlspace
A crawl space encapsulation
will protect your home by:
mold & fungal growth
your home more efficiently
indoor air quality
dust in the house
Avoid lasting damage
The idea of expensive structural damage to your home and property should be motivation enough to address a potential moisture problem within your crawl space. However, homeowners face not only the possibility of extensive damage to their homes and property but also the risk of potentially severe health complications. Moisture in the air and the building allows nasty microorganisms, bacteria, and mold to grow around the house.
Homeowners face not only the possibility of extensive damage to their homes and property but also the risk of potentially severe health complications.

The 5-Step Crawl Space Repair Process
Evaluate the damage
After our initial interview to get the details of your potential problems and goals for the project, we’ll go out and check your property out — examining the layout, measuring space, temperature, humidity, etc. Then we can start to diagnose your problem and give you a quote.
Find the cause
Finding the cause is essential both to repairing moisture damage and outfitting your crawl space to protect against moisture. With our expertise, we can identify common and less obvious sources of problems, like poor plumbing, or differences in hydrostatic pressure that lead to leaks and pooling. And if we’re cleaning out mold that’s already there, we’ll find and fix the source of the mold growth, a step that nonexpert contractors skip surprisingly often.
Fix the issues
Once we evaluate the damage and find a cause, we’ll present our plan and make sure to explain every detail. Then comes the work, when we carry out our program professionally and efficiently to fix whatever was causing problems in your crawl space. For encapsulation, we’ll do any water restoration needed, then condition it with dehumidifiers and seal it up so that it can’t trap bad air, that you’d be breathing.
Rebuild From the damage
We don’t stop at fixing your problems; we can fix whatever secondary issues arise, like water damage on floors or walls. That way, you can return to living normally.
We stand by our work
We’re not a cut-and-run, fly-by-night kind of team. We stand by our work with a one-year warranty.
Living without crawl space issues
Most crawl spaces look like they could have been taken right out of a horror movie. That’s what the first floor of your house is sitting on. It’s much better for your peace of mind and for the health of your house to fix it up. After encapsulation, it looks more like a sterilized site, one you wouldn’t mind filtering half of the air you breathe.
The whole point of encapsulating your crawl space is to protect it from intruding water, which usually happens quite slowly. You can’t have people making mistakes in installation because even tiny mishaps can lead to much more significant problems down the line, the very problems you were trying to avoid by encapsulating your crawl space in the first place.
