Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl space encapsulation is the best way to prevent moisture, humidity, and unwanted pests from getting under your home. Regardless of whether you have ever been in your crawl space or not, or what you use it for, or what you have stored there, you still need to be sure that it is kept dry, safe, and healthy at all times. This means that you need to seal it off from the outside world so that water can’t get in when it rains and cause flooding, mold growth, wood rot, sagging floors, and other serious problems. A crawl space is very different from a basement when it comes to waterproofing, but this is something you must do to ensure the protection of your largest investment – your home.

Sealing the crawl space off will also help to make your home much more energy efficient. Conditioned air from inside of your home won’t be able to escape out of the crawl space, and hot or cold air from outside won’t be able to get in. This means that your air conditioner and heater don’t need to work as hard to keep your family comfortable. This could mean huge cost savings for you each month on your energy bills. Crawl space encapsulation will also raise the resale value of your property quite extensively, and this is good news if you have any plans of putting your home on the market in the next several years. We provide efficient crawl space encapsulation services in surrounding Nebraska areas.

Two Stage Encapsulation

Vapor Barrier

We make use of a durable vapor barrier during the encapsulation process, It is installed on the walls of the skirting. It prevents moisture and excessive humidity from getting inside. Installation is fast, and we make use of fasteners and special crawl space seam tape to keep it in place. The vapor barrier will give your crawl space a clean, “finished” look which will look much better than rotting wood, mold, and dirt floors.

Floor Lining & Seal

We will seal the floors with a floor liner, and this prevents water from coming up through the ground and causing damage. Again, installation for this liner is quick, and it’s also recommended that you get a sump pump and dehumidifier installed for extra protection against moisture damage and problems with humidity.
