Hey all my peeps on the Grand Strand! It’s Cool Cat coming at you with more news you can use to keep your home safe, comfortable and energy-efficient. Have you checked your crawl space lately? If not, you’re going to want to after you read this 411 on crawl space encapsulation.
The most basic way to view it is that crawl space encapsulation turns your crawl space into a waterproof capsule. There are a ton of reasons why you would want to do this that we’ll get to in a minute but first a little more about this whole encapsulation thing. First, a waterproof vapor barrier is installed. This vapor barrier is usually made from heavy-duty plastics, laminates and resins. Then the vents are sealed shut and the vapor barrier is sealed into place.
