Crawl Space Encapsulation

For a safe and healthy home

A wet crawl space can spell disaster for your entire home. Today, most homeowners don’t realize that what happens in this area can significantly influence the rest of their house. A crawl space that isn’t encapsulated can cause severe damage to wooden support beams and floor joists. These materials can start to rot, warp, and decay overtime if left untreated. Also, a flooded crawl space can lead to the development of dangerous mold and bacteria.

Furthermore, an unsealed crawl space is an open invitation for letting in unwanted critters, such as skunks, snakes, spiders, rats, mice, termites, roaches, and other pests you don’t want living underneath your home!
