Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to USE that crawlspace? Think of all the extra space you could have if you could use it as storage? Through the process of crawlspace encapsulation. This does exactly what you think, it encloses the whole area and keeps out moisture. It also helps prevent bug infestations, can help with your utility bills, prevents the growth of mold and mildew, and keeps foul smells from moving into the living space of your home. We can add vapor barriers to cover dirt floors, all the way up to the top of the foundation walls. This is a thick barrier that will keep out all moisture. Concrete walls cannot keep out moisture. Moisture can seep into the space through concrete. If there is excess moisture, it will find a way into your crawlspace, so a vapor barrier and encapsulation are a wise choice to prevent moisture from ruining building materials such as wood beams and insulation.
