Crawl Space Encapsulation Throughout NC & SC

Serving Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro, Greenville-Spartanburg & Wilmington

We experience hot, humid weather in the Carolinas, which creates a need for crawl space encapsulation. Humid weather is not an ideal condition for an unprepared crawl space. Traditionally, houses with crawl spaces had to have vents installed within the foundation walls to allow air circulation. However, the vents also provide a point of entry for moisture. Moisture can also enter from the soils below or through existing drainage issues around a home.

Moisture accumulation threatens structural elements of your home, including beams and piers that weaken due to rot. Excessive moisture often occurs in homes with vented rather than sealed crawl spaces. If excessive moisture is not addressed, it can cause mold, mildew, fungi, musty air, standing water, pest problems, and more.

Homeowners can avoid structural damage to their crawl spaces and many other issues caused by excessive moisture by installing a proper encapsulation system. The system will reduce temperatures, limit humidity, improve air quality, and prolong the life of your home.

Crawl Space Encapsulation Systems To Solve Humidity Issues

A crawl space encapsulation system is one of the most efficient and effective ways to control moisture and humidity levels. Carolina Foundation Solutions specializes in installing crawl space encapsulation systems that are tested and proven. We use quality materials that far exceed the industry standard to ensure that each system works appropriately and stands the test of time. Each masonry pier, foundation wall, opening, and penetration are properly wrapped and sealed. We use 20 mil on the floors but 14 mil on the walls and piers. A mil is equal to 0.001 inches of thickness.

What Is the Encapsulation Process?

Effective crawl space encapsulation requires paying close attention to every detail. Our process ensures that we get everything and that the result is precisely what you desire. 

  1. Determine required prep work: We assess the current status of the crawl space and determine whether there are existing mold or water issues.
  2. Install vapor barrier and seals: We install plastic vapor barriers and seal all floors, vents, and walls to prevent moisture intrusion.
  3. Insulate: The final step is to insulate the foundation walls. For insulation, we recommend either spray foam or foam boards.

Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation

  • Removes unwanted moisture from your home: This helps control humidity and protects your home from mold and mildew. It also improves indoor air quality.
  • Prevent structural issues: Encapsulation helps protect the wood from rot, metal from rust, and foundations from damage.
  • Improves energy efficiency: Encapsulating your crawl space can reduce energy bills by up to 20%. This helps reduce your overall heating and cooling costs throughout the year.
  • Added storage space: You’ll effectively be increasing your home’s dry/sanitary storage space. It’s a perfect way to store seldom-used items safely and protected within your home.
  • Prolongs the life of heating and cooling equipment: Encapsulating your crawl space helps reduce the strain on your heating and cooling appliances. This reduces wear and tear and reduces long-term maintenance and replacement costs.
  • Increases the value of your home: Encapsulation is a key selling point that shows prospective buyers you have taken care of the property. It also ensures that their heating costs, cooling costs, HVAC maintenance, etc., will be lower than comparable properties.
  • Promotes cleaner air: Encapsulation helps ensure mold, mildew, dust, and other indoor air pollutants don’t circulate through your home.
