Crawl Space

Crawl Space Encapsulation in the Stratford Area

Crawl Space Encapsulation is a relatively new technology used to reduce excessive humidity, prevent mould growth, and eliminate unhealthy conditions in crawl spaces. The process completely isolates the crawl space from the ground and outside air by lining the foundation walls and crawlspace floor with an extra-heavy reinforced BrightWrap barrier and installing Humidity Control Ventilation from HumiFresh. The goal is to completely eliminate outside air and ground moisture from entering the building envelope. The crawlspace is no longer neglected, and instead is treated as a part of the home like a basement.

Crawl Space Symptoms of a Crawl Space Problem

  • Drywall cracks in the interior
  • Foul odours in the home
  • Heightened allergies or asthma symptoms
  • Uneven floors

Benefits of the BrightWrap/HumiFresh CrawlSpace Encapsulation System

  • Breathe healthier air
  • Reduces musty odours
  • Increased comfort throughout the home
  • Lower energy bills
  • Heating and cooling equipment lasts longer

Moisture and humidity issues are not eliminated once the crawl space is sealed. In the sealed environment, a small amount of moisture or humidity can cause a significant moisture problem. Fortunately, crawl spaces with HumiFresh Humidity Controlled Ventilation (HCV) have been shown to provide better moisture control. Plus they are more energy efficient.
