Our Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation Solutions

Water is the main culprit when it comes to crawl space damage, and our tools actively reduce the moisture below your home to prevent damage. Plus, they make your crawl space safer to use for storage!

Encapsulation/Vapor Barrier

Most foundation experts will recommend installing a vapor barrier because it has multiple benefits. Firstly, it acts as a protective shield against moisture and humidity. Water vapor and precipitation won’t be able to penetrate the thick plastic barrier once it is installed. Not to mention, the slick white design of our encapsulation system gives your crawl space a pleasant makeover, no longer appearing as dark or grimy.  

Vapor barriers also dissuade pests from making your crawl space into a home. Many pests are drawn to humid environments, so the lack of moisture and the physical barrier itself make it hard for any animals to burrow under your house.


When used in tandem with a vapor barrier, dehumidifiers are an efficient way to keep your crawl space dry. Beyond keeping moisture out, dehumidifiers create an ideal environment for wooden support beams to stay strong and healthy. Mold and wood rot won’t be able to thrive when your crawl space boasts a dehumidifier either. As an added bonus, our crawl space dehumidifier has a unique heat exchange system that helps it achieve an ENERGY STAR® rating and save you money.

Vent Covers

Many crawl spaces were built with wall vents. In the past, contractors included these because they thought it would help with crawl space air flow. They figured that humid air would be able to escape through these vents and the crawl space would stay dry. Unfortunately, this couldn’t be farther from the truth.  

These vents actually allow moisture and humidity to easily infiltrate your crawl space, and the best way to stop this is with crawl space vent covers. Once installed and sealed, vent covers stop outside air and precipitation from getting into your crawl space. Vent covers offer superb protection against outside moisture, especially when used alongside other crawl space solutions.
