The crawl space is often dark, damp and cold.
If left “unfinished,” it can cause moisture-related problems to the structure of the home and increase utility costs.
Due to high humidity in the Atlanta area, having a healthy crawl space is especially important for the overall health of your home. Many crawl spaces have built-in ventilation to allow airflow intended
to mitigate moisture. But the ventilation also allows winter cold to have free passage under the home which can result in higher heating bills.
An encapsulation system builds a moisture/vapor barrier or “liner” up the walls of the crawl space and over the exposed earth floor. The vapor barrier prevents soil gases and unhealthy air from moving up throughout the house. If these gases and added moisture is blocked it can prevent mold, mildew and dry rot from forming in your house.
