Crawl Space Encapsulation in Lake Station, Portage, Chesterton and the Northwest Indiana Region

The Ultimate Crawlspace Moisture Control and Vapor Barrier System!

encapsulation-1Crawl Space Encapsulation is a modern process of promoting healthier and energy efficient homes over a dirt crawl space. The process stops the moisture evaporation from the dirt floor and the foundation walls by sealing the crawl space with a heavy duty cord-reinforced vapor barrier. The foundation vents are sealed and the crawlspace air is conditioned. The crawl space is treated as a part of the home similar to a basement.

Building Scientists have tested and proven that vented crawl spaces are a bad building technique. If you have ever been in one, then you know this is true. They are dark, damp, and have a musty odor. The insulation is falling down and they are typically full of insects and rodents. It has been proven that allowing outdoor, unconditioned air to enter the crawlspace causes condensation, mold growth, and higher energy bills. The best solution to these problems is to encapsulate your crawl space.

Northwest Crawl Space Repair can transform your damp, dirt crawl space into a dry and usable space by installing our encapsulation system.  Our crawl space encapsulation system is the best solution to keeping the crawl space dry because it prevents moisture from evaporating from the dirt floor and out of the porous block walls.

Why is an Encapsulated Crawl Space so Important

Even if you dread going into your crawl space because it’s dirty, it’s important to maintain your crawl space for your home’s safety and family’s health. If you are avoiding your crawl space because it’s nasty, you most likely are experience a problem that needs to be addressed.

The floor structure in the crawl space is made up of wood that is susceptible to mold growth and rot. If your foundation or floor system is damaged, it will affect the safety of your home and decrease your home’s value. The Real Estate Disclosure Act requires homeowner’s to tell potential home buyers about foundation and moisture issues. These crawlspace problems can discount your home’s value up to 10-20%.

Most crawl spaces have duct systems that circulate air throughout your home. Up to 40 percent of the air we breathe comes from the crawl space. If there is mold growing in your crawlspace, then that air is being circulated through your home causing your family to breath in MOLD spores! A damp crawl space is a conducive environment for dust mites and mold which can cause serious health problems.
