Back to Basics

Proper crawlspace encapsulation is essential to any home, but to understand why, we first need to examine the purpose of the crawlspace. Crawlspaces are primarily used to promote air circulation throughout the home and allow easy access to plumbing and electrical systems.

What's the Problem

Over time, this moisture build-up can wreak havoc on homes. High humidity in crawlspaces can lead to a host of expensive and concerning issues, like:

  • Mold
  • Wood rot
  • Wildlife infestations, like rats and snakes
  • Increased risk of termite & pest activity
  • Poor indoor air quality
  • Aggravated allergies
  • Increased heating & cooling bills

The Standard Solution

Most crawlspace encapsulation systems on the market today will still allow moisture to enter the crawlspace between mechanical attachment points on the wall, because there is a void between every nail/pin in the wall. Traditional two-side tapes and high-performance adhesives WILL NOT stick permanently to plastic. If your wall liner isn’t sealing moisture out, what’s the point of the system?
