Have you noticed structural issues, pests, or mold in your home? If you answered yes to any of these, it might be time to consider crawlspace encapsulation. Encapsulating, or lining, your crawlspace involves installing a vapor barrier to provide several benefits including moisture control, improved indoor air quality, & pest control.

Moisture Control

Excess moisture, especially in a crawlspace, can cause damage to your home’s foundation or structural supports. Installing a vapor barrier along with a crawlspace dehumidifier controls moisture and keeps humidity at appropriate levels. Controlling this moisture before it becomes an issue can prevent pricey structural repairs down the road.

Improved Air Quality

An added benefit of crawlspace encapsulation is mold prevention. Mold is caused by high moisture and humidity levels and can cause serious sinus and breathing issues if left unchecked. Crawlspace encapsulation eliminates and prevents mold which improves the air quality inside your home.

Pest Control

No one wants termites, rodents, or other pests getting into their home. Crawlspace encapsulation eliminates this problem. After encapsulation, your crawlspace is completely sealed with a liner and pests are no longer able to access your home. Liner installation not only protects your home, but also gives you peace of mind.

"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!"
