Most homeowners don't usually want to think about their crawl space because it is a narrow, dark, and scary place. Pettyjohn's understands your fears and is ready to eliminate them. With the appropriate repairs, drainage, and moisture control, a crawl space can become a healthy and clean environment that you can actually use.

The Advantages of Crawl Space Encapsulation

Healthy Indoor Environment

Did you know that over 40% of the air that you breathe on the first floor of the home comes from the crawl space? Because of this, crawl space waterproofing and encapsulation is essential to your family's health. In homes with crawl spaces, the living area is so close to the crawl space that moisture and unsafe air infiltrate the home, causing potential health hazards.

Once the crawl space is encapsulated, your interior and exterior spaces will be much safer to live in. With the absence of hazardous substances (e.g. mold and bacteria) the quality and environment of your property will improve.

A Decrease in Energy Consumption

Leaks, holes, and other tiny gaps are common causes of rising energy bills. Because of these spaces, it is difficult for your heating or cooling systems to maintain efficiency. The majority of these gaps are found in your crawl space. Once the crawl space is encapsulated your heating and cooling systems will no longer have to fight against outside air coming into the crawl space - giving you the upper hand on your energy consumption.

Stronger Structure

The encapsulation material can also be your crawl space fortification. Whenever it rains, it is easy for your crawl space to get wet. Depending on where it is located, water can also pool in this area. Encapsulating the crawlspace will keep it dry. At this rate, you will not have to spend money on expensive repairs due to moisture buildup.

Mold and Pests Prevention

When your crawl space is moisture-free, it will be difficult for mold and mildew to manifest. Plus, pests that live in dark and damp spaces cannot live in a moisture-free area, forcing them to find a habitat elsewhere. In addition, this will prevent wood rot and smelly odors penetrating your property.

Increases Your Home’s Resale Value
