Crawl Space Repair

Crawl Space Repair

When many homeowners think about home repairs, crawl space encapsulation isn’t typically at the top of their list of improvements. There are many benefits of encapsulating the crawlspace that will help increase the value of the home, as well as save money for the homeowner.

  • Lower your energy costs. Encapsulation is insulation for the crawl space. By providing insulation in the crawl space you can lower energy bills by up to 20%.
  • Increase home comfort. By encapsulating the crawl space, the homeowner will notice flooring, such as tile and hardwood floors, won’t be cold in the wintertime. In the summer, the home won’t feel humid or stuffy because of the conditioning of the air in the crawlspace.
  • Eliminates musty odors. The moisture in the crawl space has been removed, which means musty odors will not be pumped in the home through the air conditioner.
  • Improved air quality. By encapsulating the crawl space, you are eliminating moisture from entering the home. Humid, unconditioned air, and mold spores are no longer able to find their way into the home.
  • Home repairs are minimized. Moisture is the source of many problems in the home. Damage to the insulation, mildew and mold outbreaks, and structural damage decreases by having the crawl space encapsulated.
  • Insect infestations are eliminated. Insects, such as termites, survive because of moisture. By eliminating the moisture, the crawl space will no longer have the conditions needed for unwanted visitors to survive.
  • Added storage space. Who wouldn’t love extra storage space? By encapsulating the crawl space, there will now be somewhere dry available for storage.

Home value increases. Encapsulating the crawl space increases the value of the home, which will make it easier to sell when the time comes. Moisture will not be an issue during home inspections. There will also be proof of energy efficiency because of lower energy bills produced by the home.
