Crawl Space Encapsulation CHARLOTTE NC

Encapsulating your crawl space is a common way to address moisture problems. It successfully resolves homeowner’s concerns about moisture and humidity. By encapsulating the crawl space area, you protect your home from ground, outside air, and water intrusion. In order to prevent moisture and humidity from leaking in, this process includes putting in a vapor barrier on the walls and the ground and sealing every seam and foundation vent.

Crawl space encapsulation helps you save money on energy costs by keeping an ideal temperature all year round and enhances indoor air quality by decreasing mold and mildew.

The Major Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation:

Take Control

If you live in the South, you are aware that we have a lot of humidity, which can impact the overall health of the foundation and crawl space in your home. If there’s too much humidity, it might prevent your crawl space from being encapsulated. This is because the wood in your flooring and structure could have too much moisture in it. This may result in the growth of fungi, wood-destroying insects, mold, and wood rot, meaning new wood will eventually need to be installed. If you want to prevent these costly repairs and potential moisture buildup, encapsulating your crawl space is essential.

Just Breathe

One of the greatest methods to maintain top-notch air quality in Charlotte or anywhere else in the Carolinas is to encapsulate your crawl space. It can help get rid of allergies, increase productivity—which is crucial if you work from home—and enhance your general health. Every homeowner wants to minimize the quantity of contaminants in the air, so why not seal off your crawl area with encapsulation?

Up Your Resale Value

A great way to increase the resale value of your home, especially if it's in the historic district of Charlotte, would be to waterproof or encapsulate your crawl space. By assuring that future homeowners won't have to deal with crawl space problems, encapsulation, waterproofing, or anything else, you are entirely protecting a portion of the house. In the event that you decide to sell your property, all Falcone encapsulation warranties are transferable to the new owner.

Practical Storage

Crawl spaces are generally neglected areas that are filled with cobwebs, filth, and debris. By encapsulating your crawl space, you can protect your storage and the foundation of your home from moisture damage and get more square footage that was previously unavailable. No matter how big or tiny your house is in Charlotte, we can all use a little extra room for our belongings.

Keep the Bugs at Bay

Insects are commonly referred to as "pests" for a reason, and your crawl space—deep within your home—just so happens to be the place where they like to live. It may be musty and dark, with plenty of openings for creepy crawlies to get inside. Crawl space encapsulation establishes a barrier and helps secure any sources of access, making your property less likely to attract undesirable "guests."

The Process

During our initial phone call, we will agree on a convenient time for a free, onsite examination. Falcone will determine whether encapsulation is really necessary for your Charlotte home. We won’t quote you for something you don’t need!

Our licensed technicians will send you a comprehensive report outlining all necessary repairs following the inspection. Depending on the report's results, they may recommend encapsulating your crawl space. Whether your property is in Charlotte or one of the outlying areas, the size and extent of the project will determine how much an encapsulation costs.

When you decide whether or not you would like to encapsulate your crawl space, Falcone will give you a call to arrange a time that works best with your schedule. We will make the process smooth for you and your family, so you are not inconvenienced or around construction for long.

Before our skilled team of specialists begins, there may be some prep work that needs to happen to make the encapsulation process run smoothly. To maintain a clean and safe work environment, this can entail cleaning the area and getting rid of any waste. You can trust our team to come alongside you and create an optimal environment for your crawl space.

The main purpose of crawl space encapsulation is to control moisture. This usually entails putting up a moisture barrier on the crawl space walls and floor, such as a heavy-duty vapor barrier or liner. To efficiently handle water, proper drainage systems, like perimeter drains or a sump pump, can also be implemented.

Once our installation crew gets to work, they may decide to upgrade or add insulation to increase energy efficiency. To create a conditioned and moisture-controlled room, crawl space encapsulation usually entails installing a dehumidifier and sealing the crawl space vents to keep outside air out.

A final inspection will be carried out following the encapsulation of your crawl space to make sure that all work has been performed in accordance with our standards. We want the waterproofing to protect your Charlotte home and bring you peace of mind for years to come.

In order to guarantee that every part of your crawl space waterproofing and encapsulation system is operating as intended, we strongly recommend an annual maintenance assessment. That way, you can have complete peace of mind, knowing your crawl space is doing its job to keep moisture from the foundation of your home.

Crawl space encapsulation is the process of waterproofing a home's basement or crawl space in order to keep moisture out and enhance indoor air quality.

Most homes with crawl spaces should have a plastic vapor barrier underneath to maintain a consistent soil moisture level and stop moisture from destroying your wood floor system.

Our Falcone Certified™ Vapor Barrier Installers follow a strict vapor barrier installation procedure to ensure your home’s protection from moisture damage. The services include clearing out the crawl space of garbage, cables, and insulation and putting in a 10-mil poly vapor barrier over the entire dirt surface.

The following are indicators that your home might benefit from crawl space encapsulation: musty smells, high humidity, window condensation, obvious mold growth, uneven flooring, or higher energy costs.

With crawl space waterproofing and encapsulation, you can protect your house from water damage, including leaks and seepage. It keeps the interior dry and prevents structural damage and expensive repairs.
