Most-Asked Crawl Space and Encapsulation Questions, Answered
Why Choose Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Encapsulation is a perfect solution for home or business owners looking to do the following:
- Improve air quality
- Protect structural integrity
- Reduce and remove water and mold damage
- Prevent infestation
Whether homeowners know it or not, the crawlspace can make or break the future of their property, so it’s important as construction professionals to help your customers understand how impactful crawlspace encapsulation can be.
To help your customers make the best decision for them, here are some reasons to choose crawlspace encapsulation.
1. Improve Indoor Air Quality Beyond Your Crawl Space
Crawl space encapsulation improves indoor air quality by preventing the buildup of moisture, mold and other allergens that can enter a home through the crawlspace. These allergens can cause respiratory problems and other health issues, particularly for people with allergies or asthma.
2. Encapsulation Helps Prevent Structural Damage
Crawl space encapsulation can actually work to prevent structural damage to a home by protecting the wooden structures from moisture damage. Moisture buildup in the crawlspace can lead to the growth of mold and mildew, which can weaken the wooden structures and lead to costly repairs.
3. Crawl Space Projects Improve Energy Efficiency
Thirdly, encapsulation helps to improve energy efficiency by preventing air leaks and reducing the reliance on your heating and cooling system. This can lead to lower energy bills and a more comfortable living environment overall.
4. Encapsulation Increases Property Value
These first three factors combine to our final great reason why crawlspace encapsulation is important: it can increase the value of a home. This can be a significant selling point if you decide to sell your home in the future. It also shows the value in paying now to get more later.
