Crawl Space Encapsulation in Southern NY & Northern PA
Since they aren’t the most visible or used part of a home, crawl spaces can be overlooked too often. Unfortunately, not paying attention to your crawl space can lead to a number of problems, such as:
- Foul odors
- Mold, dry rot & structural decay
- Bouncy or sagging floors
- Poor indoor air quality
- Uneven temperatures and discomfort around the house
- Cold floors during the winter
- High energy bills
Crawl Space Encapsulation is the science-backed way to solve and prevent all these problems.
The Problem with Crawl Space Vents
Crawl spaces are generally affected by both water evaporating from the ground and moist air coming in from the outside through the vents. Especially during the summer when warm, humid air enters the cool crawl space, condensation occurs and can raise relative humidity levels above 100%. All that moisture is soaked into the wood structures, inviting mildew, dry rot, and termites.
It turns out that the most common solutions to these problems, like vents and plastic floor coverings, do very little to solve these problems and, in fact, often enable or exacerbate them.
