Crawlspaces are encapsulated using a 12 mil polyethylene cross-woven vapor barrier tough enough to withstand damage from reentering the crawl space when needed. The vapor barrier is sealed to the crawlspace walls using high-quality butyl tape and then mechanically fastened using poly term bar, masonry screws, wood screws, and push pins. All other exposed areas and penetrations are sealed using spray foam. Prior to the encapsulation, in some cases, the crawlspace walls will be lined with foam board or spray foam to insulate further. By separating the soil and outside temperatures from the floor joists, crawlspace, and other building components, we have created a more climate-controlled environment. As a result, we have reduced the possibility of future mold, mildew, or moisture concerns caused by outside elements. This also helps improve the overall air quality in the home.
