The most common problem within a crawl space is excess humidity. This is what creates dark, damp, cold crawlspaces that can create a myriad of problems for homeowners. While most homeowners will see mold, mildew or pests as the problem, it all points back to too much humidity. However, all of those issues can be avoided opting for encapsulation.

Protect your crawlspace with a Vapor Barrier
A vapor barrier is a strong line of defense when it comes to protecting your crawl space. This is an actual lining that is laid throughout the area to prevent anything from getting through. A vapor barrier keeps out air and moisture that is threatening to invade your home. A vapor barrier actually isolates the area from the outside, thus preventing air and moisture from seeping in. A vapor barrier is an actual thick lining installed throughout your crawlspace and is one of the newer methods used to make the overall conditions safer in your home.
Installing a vapor barrier is not considered the same as encapsulation. However, many builders use vapor barrier in new homes because it meets the standard requirements as mandated by home inspectors. It is also important to note that vapor barriers vary in thickness as some are considered higher quality than others. This option is often selected by homeowners who do not want to go with encapsulation.
Crawl Space Issues
There are lots of other problems that could occur in your crawl space and they include sagging floors, cracks in the foundation, wood rot and insect problems. The best way to eliminate these problems before they can occur is to invest in crawlspace encapsulation. These issues can also become problematic when attempting to sell a home. They will almost assuredly be spotted by a home inspector and that will mean you may incur the cost of encapsulation before you can sell the home. A customer service associate is waiting to get you started on the encapsulation process and answer any questions you might have.
