What is crawl space encapsulation?
Crawl Space Encapsulation includes a variety of products and services designed to protect the home’s foundation and improve the air quality inside the home. Because the problems affecting the home, the build of each home, the goals of the homeowner may differ form project-to-project, successful crawl space encapsulations are usually customized for each home.
What does crawl space encapsulation include?
Crawl space encapsulation always includes sealing the area underneath the home with vapor barriers. This usually includes both the perimeter and floor.

- Sump pumps to pump water at least 10-feet away from the foundation
- Dehumidifiers to clean, circulate and dehumidify the air underneath (and inside) your home
- Support posts to replace or augment rotting stations
Once installed, these products work together to keep your home dry, clean and beautiful.
