We’ve got a superior alternative to crawlspace encapsulation.
If your home has a crawlspace, it is vitally important that you make sure proper measures have been taken to protect your home from water damage, mold growth, heat loss and pest infestation. You may have heard the term “crawlspace encapsulation”, which is a sealing process that involves lining the foundation walls and floor with thick polyethylene plastic, removing damaged insulation, applying spray foam insulation to seal gaps around ducts and pipes, and installing a dehumidifier. While this process has proven to be fairly effective, here at Turners Underseal, we have a superior alternative to traditional crawlspace encapsulation.
One of the biggest issues with having a crawlspace in the Jacksonville, Florida area is the humidity. Our method creates a cleaner, drier crawlspace because we don’t just waterproof– we actually deal with the moisture that naturally comes into the space. Installation of a three-ply hydrophobic liner paired with our multi-point, dry-air distribution system controls the moisture levels in the crawlspace. Specialized, ducted dehumidifiers dry and clean your air, compared to old methods of circulation for your crawlspace that draw in moist air. Up to fifty percent of the air in your living area can come from your crawlspace, and you want to be sure that it is breathable. Our process treats and cleans the air, ensuring that your living space is free of moisture and mold.
