It can also help protect your home from moisture damage and pests. Here at PBM, we offer crawl space encapsulation services that will help improve the comfort and value of your home!

The most common sign that you are in need of crawl space encapsulation services is a strange musty odor. This odor is oftentimes accompained by humid air, standing water, and even discolored walls. You may even feel a draft while you walk above your crawl space or even sagging in your floors.

We will then begin to install new installation to the walls and rim joist pockets while also making sure any vents or punctures along the foundation are sealed.

Step Four

The next step in the crawl space encapsulation process is the installation of liner. We will then roll out reinforced vapor barriers and apply them to the floors and walls of your crawl space. Once in place we seal the floor and wall liners together to help prevent any unwanted mositure from entering the crawl space.
