Moisture is a major problem for crawlspaces since it can cause structural problems, the growth of mold, and wood rot. Crawl space encapsulation Chester VA 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.
Tiger C Construction LLC keeps the underside of the home protected by providing a complete encapsulation. With sealing the entire ground surface, sealing the perimeter foundation walls, and having a dehumidification unit to control the moisture and no longer allow for further high humidity levels. With a complete encapsulation, you no longer have to worry about unhealthy high moisture under your home.

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!
