Common Crawl Space Encapsulation Materials

At Innovative Restoration, we use the below materials for crawl space encapsulation:

  • Polyethylene Vapor Barrier: Vapor barriers reduce moisture while preventing soil vapor from entering the crawl space. It seals the entire crawl space, from floor to ceiling, to keep out moisture and dust.
  • Double-sided Sealing Tape: To prevent air leakage through the vapor barrier's seams, the sealing tape is used to keep the individual panels in place.
  • Mechanical Fasteners or Termination Bars: It is used for crawl space waterproofing.
  • Concrete screws: It permanently secures the vapor barrier to the foundation wall.
  • Spray and Insulation Board: To insulate the crawl space foundation wall, rigid insulation boards and spray foam are used. It blocks crawl space airflow.
  • Dehumidifier: It is necessary to condition the crawl space and maintain optimal humidity levels throughout the entire year.
  • Sump Pump: It prevents crawlspace moisture. It keeps the crawl space dry and reduces mold risk.
