What is Crawlspace Encapsulation?

Crawlspace encapsulation is a process that involves sealing a home's crawlspace with a high-quality moisture barrier to prevent moisture intrusion, improve air quality, and deter pests. 

Our encapsulation process starts by covering the crawlspace floor and walls with a durable vapor barrier, sealing all vents and openings to block outside air and moisture. In some cases, a drainage system, such as a sump pump, may be installed to prevent water pooling. 

Why Crawlspace Encapsulation Matters

It’s a crucial step in maintaining the structural integrity and overall health of your home or business. Unprotected crawlspaces can become breeding grounds for mold, mildew, pests, and other harmful elements. By sealing your crawlspace with a moisture barrier, you protect your property from moisture-related damage and create an inhospitable environment for pests, while also improving indoor air quality and overall energy efficiency.

Our Crawlspace Encapsulation Services

At Thompson Brothers, we provide comprehensive crawlspace encapsulation services tailored to meet your specific needs. Our services include:

  • Crawlspace Moisture Barrier: Installing a high-quality moisture barrier to prevent water vapor from entering your crawlspace, reducing the risk of mold and mildew growth.

  • Crawlspace Encapsulation: Sealing your crawlspace with a durable liner that covers the ground and walls, effectively preventing moisture intrusion and termite activity.

  • Foundation Waterproofing: Enhancing the waterproofing of your foundation to ensure long-term protection against moisture.

  • Crawlspace Sealing: Sealing all vents, doors, and other openings to prevent air and moisture infiltration.

  • Crawlspace Drain Systems: Installing efficient drain systems and/or sump pumps to manage water accumulation and prevent flooding in your crawlspace.

Benefits of Crawlspace Encapsulation

One of the biggest benefits of encapsulating your crawlspace may be peace of mind, knowing that your home’s foundation is protected. But, there are many other beneficial features:

  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: A sealed crawlspace reduces the entry of moisture, mold and mildew, leading to cleaner and healthier indoor air.

  • Enhanced Energy Efficiency: Encapsulation helps regulate the temperature in your crawlspace, reducing energy consumption and lowering your utility bills.

  • Protection Against Pests: A sealed crawlspace creates a barrier against pests, preventing infestations and protecting your property.

  • Increased Property Value: Properly maintained and encapsulated crawlspaces add value to your home or business, making it a more attractive investment.

What Our Customers Say

Sharon P, Waterproofing & Repair

We had extensive water intrusion that our inspector did not see. Thompson Brothers had to engage in grading, extensive digging, reinstallation of French drains, and install a new drainage field. The work was excellent. All personnel is polite, on time, and very professional. Highly recommend.
