Encapsulating your crawl space is a way to keep moisture out and other unwanted problems out of your home. Sealing off the space can protect your home’s foundation and makes your home a healthier place to live. Other benefits from encapsulating your crawl space include improving air quality and healthy living conditions, eliminating bug infestation, prevents mold and mildew issues, thwarts structural damage, and increases energy efficiency.
