Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl space encapsulation is the process of lining a heavy-duty moisture and vapor barrier to the floor, walls and footings of your crawl space. Our professional team will eliminate any water intrusion first and may recommend a crawl space dehumidifier after encapsulation to help regulate humidity and moisture in your San Jose home, but that will depend on your situation.

Excess moisture in the crawl space of your home can have devastating effects. If left untreated, it can cause significant damage to the foundation of your home, leading to complete foundation failure. Additionally, excess moisture is a breeding ground for harmful mold and mildew, which can cause significant health problems to everyone in the home. Keep your Bay Area California home safe and healthy with crawl space encapsulation from Foundation Strategies and Construction. Call today for an appointment!

Benefits of crawl space encapsulation

A properly encapsulated crawl space will improve your home’s overall indoor air quality, comfort, and energy efficiency. Studies have shown sealing and encapsulating your crawl space can save upwards of 14% on their energy bill, provide eligibility for a tax credit, eliminate future structural issues and pest infestations.
