Crawl Space Encapsulation

Most homeowners care deeply about the health and safety of their homes. We clean our homes, improve them, decorate them and live in them. However, most homeowners with crawl spaces ignore that room of the house. Crawl spaces are the greatest source of moisture, dust and dirt, and potential damage to your home. Moisture promotes mold, dust mites, wood rot and rust. When these come, the crawl space is an unhealthy and unsafe part of your home. And an unhealthy and unsafe crawl space makes the entire house a potential health hazard and safety concern. When you add to the mix soil gases and rodent infestation, you quickly realize that crawl spaces need just as much, if not more attention than the rest of the house.

HomeSpec BasementFix has the answer: Crawl Space Encapsulation. Many years ago, authorities debated between vented and unvented crawl spaces. Today, the debate is between vented or conditioned crawl spaces. A conditioned space seals it off completely from sources of moisture, soil gases and pests. A conditioned space is insulated with no gaps and can allow for minimal heat or A/C to come into the crawl space because it’s not being wasted. A conditioned space gives control to your heating and air conditioning energy consumption. A conditioned space is much like a basement which is sealed and has temperature and humidity control. A conditioned space is an encapsulated space.

HomeSpec BasementFix uses the highest quality materials, installed by our own professional crews to make sure the crawl space is fully encapsulated. See for yourself what goes into our total crawl space insulation and encapsulation system once we’ve cleaned and evened it out:
