This neglect often leads to crawl space water damage, including mold, dry rot, and increased energy bills due to high humidity. Crawl Space Encapsulation Daly City and vapor barrier installation are services we offer to help homeowners maintain the health of their crawl space. It provides a permanent solution involving as little maintenance and upkeep as possible through the use of things like dehumidifiers and expertly installed vapor barriers
WHAT IS CRAWL SPACE ENCAPSULATION?
Encapsulation is the process of completely waterproofing your crawl space. It involves the use of several different waterproofing and moisture control solutions, including insulation, vapor barrier installation, and either an HVAC duct boot or a dehumidifier. These systems work together to completely seal out water and moisture, preventing crawl space flooding and high crawl space humidity. Both flooding and humidity can cause numerous problems for the safety and structural integrity of your home.
WHAT IS A VAPOR BARRIER?
A vapor barrier, also called a moisture barrier, is any material that is used to waterproof or damp-proof a building. Most often it is a plastic sheet used to resist water infiltration through walls, floors, ceilings, and roofs. We use the highest quality vapor barriers available on the market.

OUR CRAWL SPACE ENCAPSULATION PROCESS
To properly encapsulate a crawl space, there are necessary steps that must be taken. Our installation experts have perfected this process over the last 25 years to provide the best possible results.
We start by removing the existing floor insulation that is under the subflooring inside the crawl space.
We remove any existing building materials, trash, and old plastic before leveling the crawl space floor.
We eliminate any mold and termite nests with our mold abatement and pesticide spray.
We insulate the crawl space walls, vents, & rim joists with Greenguard R10 2” foam board around the perimeter. We also seal any foreseen voids with foam spray, sealing your crawl space tight.
After the crawl space area is insulated, we wrap the crawl space floor, piers, & walls with a 16mil vapor barrier. We use the strongest vapor barrier on the market. Standard building code calls for 6mil and we use 16mil to ensure your crawl space is equipped with a moisture barrier that will last.
Depending on your home’s ventilation, we either supply positive air supply with a 4” x10” duct boot off your HVAC system or install an Aprilaire dehumidifier system with condensation pump. We can even install a digital control for the Aprilaire unit so you can adjust the unit anytime you would like.
