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.

I wish more companies would be as thorough and responsive as the Water Extraction Experts!!!
They're also very personable and considerate!
Water Extraction Experts are professional and punctual, and they perform great quality work. They're also very personable and considerate! I was feeling stressed by the prospect of getting mold remediation done when I reached out, and I felt supported by Matt and the entire team as they worked through the process with us. I really appreciated that they did an initial quote and inspection, then were happy to work with us as we decided what project scope we wanted to commit to. Thank you for all your hard work, and the beautiful job you did making my home safe again! I would definitely recommend this team, and I will reach out to them again in the future if I need any other services.
Water Extraction Experts handled the mold remediation, repair, and restoration of my walk-in pantry which was damaged by a frozen and busted water line. Every member of the team was exceptionally professional, courteous, and personable. Each step of the process was clearly communicated and the effort unfolded exactly as was described. The cost estimates at the beginning were very good and tracked very closely with the final invoice. The Water Extraction team went above and beyond to ensure that they coordinated well with my schedule and made efforts to make the process as easy as possible for me. The local adjuster for USAA knew the WEE team well and told me that their work was top notch. With transparency and integrity, Matt, Andy, and the rest of the team truly work hard to provide professional service and good quality results. If I have any major water damage in the future, I'll immediately call Water Extraction Experts.
