Crawl Space Encapsulation
What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Up to 50% of the air in your house can stream in from your crawl space. Moisture in the crawl space can cause air quality issues and odors. Adding a crawl space vapor barrier can increase indoor air quality and keep your home warmer in the winter.
Water Extraction Experts encapsulate a crawl space by sealing it with a water vapor barrier (usually a heavy-duty polyethylene barrier) to effectively contain any moisture seeping in from the floor and foundation walls.
Why should you encapsulate your crawl space?
We hear from a lot of our customers who choose to put a water vapor barrier in their crawl space to reduce musty odors in their home. However, there are health risks often associated with a damp crawl space, such as mold, air quality, and fungi. Structural damage, such as wood rot, can also be a problem and negatively impact the value of your property. By encapsulating your crawl space, you also regain this space for storage.
Our Process for Encapsulating
your Crawl Space
- Call us for a FREE inspection. We’ll assess your crawl space and make sure it’s ready for encapsulation.
- Prior to encapsulation will address any excess moisture issues, take measurements and make sure the area is ready for placement of the water vapor barrier.
- Our certified technicians will begin placing the water vapor barrier. We’ll cut the water vapor barrier to the specific measurements of your crawl space to ensure adequate overlap and no gaps are present.
- If your crawl space needs further humidity control, we may recommend the placement of a dehumidifier.

Prompt, Professional & Thorough
I called Water Extraction for help with my flooded basement. Unique to inquiries I had made to other companies, Doug quickly returned my call and was out to my home in Greeley within 24 hours. That was a great start--but the Water Extraction Crew decidedly assessed the most reasonable alternatives to my problem and had quality people appropriately lined up for all phases. Their crew was refreshingly courteous, professional, responsive to my concerns and went the extra mile to restore my property. I highly recommend them.
Fast and efficient help
I was watching a friend's animals and walked into her house only to hear rushing water. I called and reached Doug on a Sat afternoon. He got from Fort Collins to Greeley in an hour. They were so professional and knowledgeable that my friend decided against coming home early to deal with the flooded basement and to let Doug and his crew handle it. Really happy with the job they did! Highly recommend this company.
