Why Choose Crawlspace Encapsulation Services?

When your home was built, crawlspaces were likely part of the design. These spaces allow you to reach your home's electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems, but you might not know that they can also harbor dangers. If your crawlspaces are left open, as is the case in almost all residential construction, you may begin to notice the effects of water damage and mold or even of a pest infestation. At Jersey Shore Home Moisture Management, we're proud to help homeowners combat crawlspace problems and enjoy healthier, safer homes. 

What is Crawlspace Encapsulation?

Crawlspaces in your home may be located beneath your floors or above your ceilings. In most cases, crawlspaces were left open after they were built. This means that all of the air that moves through your home also moves through your crawlspaces, meaning that moisture from the air can collect in these dark, dank areas. Because they are open, crawlspaces are also vulnerable to infestation by pests and rodents. Crawlspace encapsulation provides a solution for homeowners who are concerned about poor air quality or infestation due to unfinished crawlspaces.

During encapsulation, we'll install a special vapor barrier designed to discourage moisture and pests from entertain your crawlspace. We'll help you choose the right type of barrier for your space and will install it according to our rigorous standards so that you can begin to enjoy the benefits immediately. Remember that choosing crawlspace encapsulation is a great way to:

  • Cut down on mold problems and improve overall air quality.
  • Discourage rodent and pest infestations.
  • Increase the overall value of your home.
  • Protect your home's structural elements from water and mold damage.
