How (And Why) We Seal Crawl Spaces

A vented crawl space that's showing advanced signs of mold, rot, and water damage

A Failed Building Practice

Vented dirt crawl spaces, long the building code standard, have failed us time and again. The results have been rotting, moldy, inefficient crawl spaces.

By sealing your crawl space, you can create and maintain a drier, healthier, more energy efficient space.

Over the past few decades, it has become increasingly clear that vented dirt crawl spaces are simply not working for homeowners.

Crawl space ventilation brings a number of unwanted outside issues into the home -- including summer humidity, rain, snow, and winter cold.

Combined, these forces create a damp, moldy crawl space environment, while the cold affects furnaces, hot water pipes, and other utilities and costs you unnecessarily on your utility bills.

What's The Alternative?

Instead of bringing humidity, moisture, and cold air into the crawl space, our experts seal the crawl space. This closing the vents, installing an airtight door, sealing the walls and floors, and dehumidifying the space..

Once you've created and maintained an encapsulated, dry space, you can ensure that your building materials stay dry, the structure remains strong, and that you make the best of your home's energy usage.
