If you live in a double-wide home or a modular home, often times your home will have a crawl space rather than a basement or cellar. A crawl space is an area accessible by crawling, typically located beneath a home or building, or within its walls. This is the area where you are able to get to water mains, pipes, or electrical wiring which serves your home.

Crawl space encapsulation is the process of actually closing in a crawl space for the purpose of controlling the moisture within the space. Basically the encapsulation is a foundation without any ventilation or wall openings, and it uses a combination of mechanical drying techniques and air-sealing to control dampness levels in the crawl space. The foundation, walls, and floor of the crawl space are air-sealed providing total encapsulation; any insulation in the crawl space which is located in the exterior walls or level with the floor may remain in those areas. All other insulation is removed when the encapsulation process takes place.

A crawlspace system offers a permanent solution to moisture problems and energy loss. Encapsulating your crawl space, today will have many benefits that you will notice almost instantly, and it will keep the house in good condition in the long term.
