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.

They did a great job.
I highly recommend this company!
I would highly recommend this company. Outstanding service.
Wow... just WOW.
My water heater burst, I have a pretty small house but it was... soggy. I'd called the big guys (ServPro, Stanley Steemer, etc) in the morning and mostly gotten, "well, we might be able to squeeze you in today... or we might not." as an answer. I know I'm not the only person in the city with a flood, but I definitely was nobody's priority. My adjuster recommended these guys, and I am SO GLAD.
They showed up within 90 minutes, came in and got to work. Fast, so friendly, and super helpful. They explained the whole process to me: what they were looking for, things they were concerned about; and came every day to check on the progress of my house and adjust equipment as necessary. Extremely thorough and detail oriented. They even got paint samples from all of my walls and touched them up if they were dinged or scraped in the process.
I couldn't possibly be more impressed by the work ethic and professionalism shown by every last one of the employees. As far as house floodings go, this was the best possible experience I could have hoped for. I'd highly recommend Water Extraction Experts, to anybody!
These guys were awesome and just unbelievable professionalism
These guys were awesome and just unbelievable professionalism the entire time they were here! They showed up on time for every single visit, even apologized for arriving 7 minutes early once. Putting up with my little yappy dogs so graciously earner them big points, too!
They made sure every drying and repairs were okayed by me before proceeding. I work nights and they accommodated every schedule request I had which made working with them such so easy!
I can't say enough good things about them and am so happy that I decided to work with them. They earned their 5 stars!
