Now Offering Crawlspace Encapsulation

Published: January 24, 2020



Is your home constantly plagued with dampness or mold, pest or insect problems? Have rotting wood coupled with structural issues, or high cooling costs? If you answered yes to any of these, it is time to consider encapsulating, or lining, your crawlspace. Crawlspace encapsulation involves installing a vapor barrier, and can save you money down the road, preventing pricey repairs caused by moisture and humidity. 

How Does Encapsulation Work? 

Before encapsulation, your crawlspace will need to be evaluated to make sure there are no existing bulk water issues. After the initial assessment, the crawlspace will need to be cleaned out and the space will need to be measured. Next in the encapsulation process: installing the vapor barrier. It is important for all walls and floor surfaces to be covered completely and as consistently as possible. Finally, in order to keep humidity at appropriate levels, a crawlspace dehumidifier is recommended to be added. The total time of the job varies by the size of the home and of the crawlspace, but most jobs can be completed in one day.


Encapsulation & Lining Benefits

Encapsulating a crawlspace has many benefits to your home and health. Controlling the moisture levels in your crawlspace can help keep mold at bay. Indoor air quality will also improve by it being dry and sealed from outside elements. Crawlspace encapsulation can help you avoid costly structural repairs caused by excess moisture. In addition to lining, other common crawlspace services include vapor barrier liners and drainage matting. Other services offered are spray foam insulation, vent & door covers, stabilizing posts, and french drains.

"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
