Massachusetts Crawl Space Encapsulation

Many homes have in the foundation area a space that is not as large or high as a basement. This area is known as a crawl space. A crawl space can suffer from many water related issues and may even need some of the same waterproofing solutions that basements require or a waterproofing solution that is unique to the crawl space such as encapsulation.

When will you know whether or not you need your crawl space encapsulated?

  • Wet Areas or Water on the Floor
  • Visible Mold or Strong Mold Smell
  • Rotted Wood Above Crawl Space
  • Insects or Rodents Present
  • Open Vents in Crawl Space
  • Cold Floors Above Space
  • Damp or Dirty Insulation
  • Hot or Humid Environment Leading to Sagging Crawl Spaces

Crawl spaces are found throughout Massachusetts homes. In cities like Boston and Cambridge, as well as outlying areas like Norfolk County, Middlesex County and Worcester County, if your home has a crawl space you need to be thinking about encapsulation to keep your home safe.

Maintain a Comfortable Indoor Air Quality

The moisture can circulate throughout your home, becoming hazardous to the health of the occupants of the home and requiring the need for mold remediation in Massachusetts.

We’ve seen crawl spaces with different types of floors, including concrete or soil. Should a dirt floor exist, one of the best ways to stop the moisture from entering into the crawl space and then into the home is the process of crawl space encapsulation.

  • Encapsulation is the process of covering the foundation walls and dirt floor with a heavy polyethylene membrane that seals out moisture and soil gases.

Should the crawl space have a concrete foundation, a different method of moisture control can be used besides encapsulation for your crawl space or foundation crack repair in Massachusetts.

Think About Vapor Barrier as an Alternative Solution
