Crawl Space Encapsulation Contractors
Crawl Space Encapsulation
The high levels of moisture and humidity in crawl spaces can provide ideal growing conditions for mold spores. Encapsulating and dehumidifying the space prevents mold growth and further issues.
A sealed crawl space also helps promotes better energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and a safer crawl space environment.
Why is an encapsulated crawl space recommended?
Crawl space encapsulation, or sealing, is a treatment to transform a damp, dirty, & moldy crawl space into a clean, dry space that is inhospitable to mold growth. Most homes built on a crawl space foundation suffer from moisture problems, especially those in North Carolina. Crawl space issues can cause other problems in the upstairs living space, too.
Common signs in the upstairs area are musty odors, buckled hardwood floors, condensation and rot around floor registers, cold floors, and high heating and cooling costs.
Inside the crawl space, you may notice mold or moisture damage, condensation or “sweating” on air conditioner ductwork or equipment, condensation on pipes, soggy insulation, hanging or fallen insulation, insect or pest infestations, rotted wooden framing, or water on the dirt or concrete floor.

How much does crawl space encapsulation cost?
The cost of a crawl space encapsulation can vary on what condition your crawl space is in and the crawl space size. If any structural issues need to be addressed, or if new insulation is needed it can also affect costs. However, we always provide a free on-site quote so we can give you an accurate estimate!
