8 Mil - 20 Mil Diamondback Vapor Barriers
What does the term mean?
Crawlspace encapsulation is a term that describes the process of implementing a complete vapor barrier system on the sidewalls and ground in order to keep moisture out. This seals out the elements, including humidity and water from entering into the crawlspace cavity, which creates a conducive environment for mold growth and wood-destroying insects to thrive.
The Encapsulation Process
Crawlspace Encapsulation Method
Crawlspace Encapsulation is a process that should be performed by trained professionals with experience. As crawlspace specialists, we have encapsulated thousands of properties, residential and commercial throughout the Jersey Shore. The process begins with:
Cleaning out the crawlspace and preparing the ground by either leveling or installing a drainage waffle barrier.
Sealing off all the crawlspace vents or insulating the side walls with sidewall insulation.
Taping and sealing the sidewalls, support columns, and ground floor with a Diamondback mold-resistant vapor barrier.
Moisture Control & Energy Savings
The main benefits are that it seals off pests and warm air from entering the crawlspace. This protects your wood structures by preventing structural issues that stem from wood-destroying insects and mold growth.
Additionally, it helps prevent cool air from escaping in the summer and heat loss during the winter.
