Moisture is a significant problem for crawl spaces and can lead to mold growth, wood rot, and structural issues. To avoid these problems, crawlspace encapsulation Chester VA is an investment that will pay off with a healthier home.
Due to crawlspaces being below ground level, they are very prone to receiving moisture and water. The exterior soil against the foundation allows for moisture to penetrate through the foundation walls and the crawl space ground surface soil allows for even more moisture to roam through the crawl space. These conditions lead to humidity inside the crawl space. Left untreated, this humidity can lead to excess moisture, mold growth, deteriorated lumber, and settling floors. Before an encapsulation or any sealing conditioning of your crawlspace, it is very important to first address any water accumulation issues.
Tiger C Construction keeps the underside of the home protected by providing a complete encapsulation. With sealing the entire ground surface, sealing the perimeter foundations 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. Visit our About Us page for more details.

Many contractors’ will offer to install an “encapsulation” for your crawl space but will only do a portion of what an encapsulation actually consists of. To have a Full Encapsulated crawl space 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 crawl space conditioning solution where a permit can be obtained.
Crawl space conditioning and crawl space 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 for the crawl space. A crawl space encapsulation is always a better option because the board insulation against the foundation walls helps keep hot/humid and cold out of your crawl space and allows it to maintain a consistent temperature and humidity. Also, a fully permitted encapsulation can bring value to your home.
Whether it is crawl space encapsulation or conditioning of your crawl space, they both bring tons of benefits and value to your crawl space.
