Crawl Space Repair: What NOT To Do

Encapsulating A Crawl Space

We recommend installing a vapor barrier on the walls and floors, sealing off all vents, installing airtight doors, and adding a crawl space dehumidifier.

If your crawl space has sources of standing water, these must be addressed before any encapsulation system is installed.

Common Crawl Space Problems

Crawl spaces are well-known for being dank, musty, unpleasant spaces. They're often strongholds for mold and rot, safe havens for pests, and producers of musty, unsavory odors of all types.

Additionally, and perhaps more alarmingly, crawl spaces are also notorious for being the the source of various structural issues -- whether due to sinking supports or a rotting structure.

What Causes Crawl Space Issues?

The vast majority of crawl space issues are caused by the improper management of moisture and humidity within the space.

Most commonly, these moisture issues are due to a combination of a poorly designed moisture control system, and the application of poor building science.
