Crawl space encapsulation is the most effective way to improve indoor air quality and increase your energy efficiency. Up to 50% of your indoor air flows up into your home from your crawl space. That's why it's so important to keep your crawl space as clean and dry as possible. Crawl space encapsulation is the best way to avoid indoor moisture issues, using a heavy-duty polyvapor barrier to completely cover the ground and foundation walls.

Are you tired of cold floors in the winter? Does your house smell musty and damp? Lucas Insulation specializes in crawl space encapsulation that seals your home against drafts and moisture leaks, increases your indoor air quality and decreases your monthly energy bill.

What is crawl space encapsulation?

In general terms, crawl space encapsulation is a sealing application primarily used to protect against water vapor and excess moisture while improving energy efficiency and comfort in your home.

Creating an effective barrier includes:

  • Covering walls from the foundation up to the floor joist with a durable protective plastic, or with closed cell spray foam.
  • Wrapping pipes and any other fixture or structures that come up through a dirt floor with waterproof tape.
  • Sealing areas cut around appliances, such as furnaces, indoor HVAC components and water heaters.

At Lucas Insulation, our team members have the training, tools, and experience to answer all of your questions and complete the job according to local building codes. We are bonded and fully insured. And, over the past two decades have built a strong reputation based on honesty, integrity and dependability.
