Encapsulation San Antonio, TX
A sagging crawl space can lead to structural damage throughout the home. Unfortunately, it is very common for crawl spaces to be constructed poorly, with inadequately spaced supports, or too few supports.
Many homeowners confuse between crawl space encapsulation and crawl space insulation. But the two serve very different functions. Crawl space encapsulation works great when you’re dealing with such issues as ground moisture and humid air.
Encapsulation is one way to protect your home and your family from crawlspace contaminants and improve your indoor air quality.
What Is Encapsulation?
Encapsulation is a heavy-duty lining that seals your crawl space. This lining acts as a barrier, covering the walls, floors, and ceiling to prevent vapors from entering the home. It is sealed with double-sided foundation tape and caulk to create a leak-proof seal.
For many homeowners, DIY home upgrades are fun and cost-saving. But when it comes to crawling space encapsulation, it’s a bad idea to assume you can complete the project by yourself.
