Crawl Space Encapsulation

Moisture is a major problem for crawlspaces since it can cause structural problems, the growth of mold, and wood rot. Crawl space encapsulation and crawl space waterproofing is an investment that leads to a healthier home and helps you prevent these types of problems.

Crawlspaces are particularly prone to absorbing moisture and water because they are below ground level. Moisture may penetrate through the foundation walls due to the exterior soil against it, and further moisture can also move through the ground surface soil. These circumstances cause humidity in the area below. If not taken care of, this humidity might end up in an excessive amount of moisture, which can lead to mold growth, deteriorated lumber, and uneven flooring. It is essential to take precautions to prevent any problems with water from accumulating before encapsulating or else sealing off your crawlspace.

I called Tiger C Construction for an estimate because the company had good reviews and a clean record. However, it was the way they explained every phase of the process and how the solutions would resolve the problem that sold me. The workers showed up and did the job exactly as advertised; I was extremely happy with the results. They totally transformed my home's structure and crawl space to the point where it is level and moisture free. Overall, the entire job from start to finish was an enjoyable experience; I highly recommend this company.

Overall I was pleased with Tiger C. They did an inspection agreed with me on possible solution, installed everything on time. My only disappointment was after I had made a deposit on the work to done, but not completed, I received a coupon in the mail offering 5 % off any job, when inquired about the coupon, I was told they could not honor it. Maybe its just little thing, but don't send stuff out if you are not going to stick by your offer. 175 dollars is still a big chunk of money, even if the fine print say you have to present coupon before inspection.

It is refreshing to be able to make an enthusiastic post in support of a contractor. Tiger C did a great job for us. They installed a new trench drain along the end of our house, installed a yard inlet, installed new below grade drain tiles for our downspouts, and they completely reworked our crawlspace. The crawlspace work included new perimeter drain tile inside the foundation walls tied into a sump, new crawlspace access door, and complete encapsulation. We no longer have drainage issues outside and the previous water and moisture issues in the crawlspace are behind us. These folks are knowledgeable, hardworking, responsive, and honest. Highly Recommended!

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Benefits of Conditioning Your Crawl Space

Many contractors will offer to install an “encapsulation” for your crawlspaces but will only do a portion of what an encapsulation actually consists of. To have a fully encapsulated crawlspace it needs three things, a liner/vapor barrier for the ground surface, insulation for the perimeter foundation walls, and a dehumidification unit. If it does not have those three items, then it is not an encapsulation. A full encapsulation is also the only conditioning solution where a permit can be obtained.

Crawl space conditioning and encapsulation are both similar but can provide different benefits. They both provide better air quality to your home, especially since up to 50% of the air that we breathe inside our homes comes from the spaces below. An encapsulation is always a better option because the board insulation against the foundation walls helps keep hot/humid and cold out of your crawlspace and allows it to maintain a consistent temperature and humidity. Also, a fully permitted encapsulation can bring value to your home.

Whether it is encapsulation or conditioning of your crawlspace, they both bring tons of benefits and value to your home. With all the maintenance a home needs, the space below can sometimes be the area of the home that you least want to worry about, so bring yourself the peace of mind that the spaces below your home are in a clean and healthy condition. Also, before you encapsulate your crawlspace, be sure you are not having water entry!
