Crawl Space Encapsulation
The most effective method of protecting your crawl space is through crawl space encapsulation. Simply put, this is the process of completely sealing your crawl space off from any outside elements. The goal is to keep out unwanted moisture and pests, which in turn will lead to a healthier home.
At RC Waterproofing, we use a specialized method of crawl space encapsulation called WhiteCap. The WhiteCap method accomplishes the same things that generic forms of encapsulation do, but is longer lasting and more effective. The process is straightforward: our technicians will first start by cleaning your crawl space. This means removing any debris, rotten insulation, pests, rusted ducts… you name it. When the space is completely cleaned out, we then cover the walls with an insulated barrier. Not only are these designed to keep moisture out, but they also work to conserve energy. After that, we apply a vapor barrier to the crawl space floor, which protects it from any moisture or nastiness. The result will be a crawl space that’s impenetrable by outside elements, and a more pleasant space in your home.
The best thing about WhiteCap is that when the process is completed once, you won’t have to worry about it again. It’s designed to be a permanent fixture in your home, so you won’t need to worry about the health of your crawl space in the future!
