Crawl Space Encapsulation

The living space above your crawl space is often cold because crawlspaces are typically poorly insulated, or the crawlspace is not insulated at all.  We can fix that problem.  See the photos below for before and after photos of the work we typically do in crawl spaces. This is also known as crawl space encapsulation. Crawl space encapsulation includes adding a sealed vapor barrier, insulating crawl space walls and rim joists (framing above the exterior masonry walls), and sealing air leaks. Vented crawlspaces were common before the code was changed to allow “conditioned”, or heated and cooled, crawl spaces. Conditioned crawl spaces work better than crawl spaces with insulation in the floor over them, because we want to keep water pipes and ducts in that space warm.
