Crawl Space Encapsulation

The most thorough and comprehensive way to protect your crawl space from moisture is crawl space encapsulation. Crawl space encapsulation is a complex, multi-step process.

At Kefficient, we are the professionals who can deliver quality service at the best price. With years of experience, we know what it takes to handle your crawl space encapsulation in a timely manner.

Should crawl space be encapsulated?

In short, every home could benefit from an encapsulated crawl space, but there are some warning signs which can help you determine the urgency.

The most common and noticeable sign of crawl space damage is a gross, musty odor. Additionally, if you’ve noticed humid air, discolored walls, or standing water, you’re in need of an inspection.

Lastly, if you feel a draft while walking above your crawl space, or notice sagging in your floors, then you need an inspection.

Luckily, the professionals at Kefficient offer FREE inspections. Let us determine if your crawl space needs encapsulation at no extra cost to you.

What is involved in crawl space encapsulation? 

The process we use for crawl space encapsulation includes several different steps. First, our crawl space professionals clear all debris in order to properly assess the state of your crawl space. By removing clutter, we can make accurate judgments about the damage and what’s needed.

Next, we level the soil or gravel floors. Then, the actual encapsulation process begins. We start by laying drainage matting across the entire crawl space floor. This helps for waterproofing, provides tear resistance, and softens the floor for anyone who may need to crawl inside.

Next, we roll out reinforced vapor barriers, then apply them to the floors and walls in your crawl space. Once everything is in place, we seal the wall and floor liners together; thus ensuring that no unwanted moisture can enter the space.

The finishing touches involve sealing your floor joists with spray foam, replacing any missing or broken crawl space vents, and ensuring the space has no vulnerabilities. Additionally, we install a crawl space dehumidifier to maintain a safe humidity level.
