Crawlspace Medic
The Crawlspace Medic technicians did a thorough inspection and give a detailed report of what was need to rehab my crawlspace and repair the standing water there. Their estimate for repair was reasonable and the technicians were prompt, thorough, professional and friendly. I’m completely satisfied with my new neat, clean and dry crawlspace, so far. Thank you for a job well done.
Crawl space Medic did a great job on our crawl space! Very professional, prompt, and we were able to see a drastic drop in the humidity under the house in a very short time! They even returned several times after completion of their work, to check on the water/humidity. Highly recommend!
The amount of work they put in to my crawlspace was excellent and worth every penny spent. Between removal of everything and install of the support beam, concrete pads, new insulation and vapor barrier and surprise work with replacement of some actually floor joists and broken pipes I can’t recommend these guys enough.

  • Dry rot
  • Mold, mildew, and fungi

What are the other benefits of crawl space encapsulation?

 

In addition to protecting your home from water damage, mold, mildew, and structural damage from dry rot, encapsulating your crawl space has the following benefits:

Improved air quality

This is especially important if someone in your home has breathing problems. But anyone can suffer from breathing contaminated air resulting from mold spores. Protect yourself and your loved ones from respiratory illness from mold and mildew growth under your home.

Structural integrity

Aside from preventing dry rot that can weaken your home’s wood support beams, sealing your crawl space can also prevent other pests like termites or carpenter ants from damaging your home’s structural integrity.

More comfortable indoor environment

Reducing moisture underneath your house can also reduce excess moisture inside your house, making a more comfortable place to live. Your home will also stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

Increased energy efficiency

Sealing your home from underneath will also help you save on heating and cooling costs each month. Crawl space encapsulation seals your home from moisture and the elements from outside while keeping your home’s interior a comfortable temperature without going over budget each month.

Additional storage

With an encapsulated crawl space, you can use the space under your house for storage without worrying about things getting ruined from moisture or pests.
