Water Source Control


In order to make crawlspace encapsulation efficient and effective, ALL sources of water infiltration must be stopped.

Key Components:

  • Perimeter Drains
  • Sump Pumps
  • Sufficient length of downspouts directed away from crawlspace



THE BASICS


The focus of Crawlspace Encapsulation is to seal the area from moisture using a vapor barrier on the floors and walls.


A fully encapsulated crawlspace features:

  • 100% coverage of the ground with a vapor barrier
  • Seams and junctions of vapor barrier sealed
  • Sealed vents
  • Closed cell spray foam insulation on foundation walls and band joist

Crawlspace Neglect


A crawlspace is out of sight and out of mind but can have a lasting impact on your health, wallet and structural integrity of your home!

The IMPACT of a neglected crawlspace:

  • Moisture leads to a breeding ground for mold
  • Moisture produces humidity which reduces air quality
  • Moisture increases the potential of rot to the house structure
  • Musty smell
  • Insects and rodents
  • Loss of energy savings



Go Green Insulation installs in every crawlspace a moisture meter as a precaution to monitor moisture levels.
