If you’ve been noticing mold, mildew, or moisture in your crawl space, it may be time to encapsulate it. Mold and moisture in your home can cause serious health issues, and can also cause property damage. Having your crawl space encapsulated can help protect your home, and improve the air quality inside.
What is the average cost of crawl space encapsulation?
Encapsulating your crawl space can also keep bugs and pests from causing problems. Pests such as rodents and termites prefer to live in a warm, damp area. These insects can damage your home’s structure and cause more damage to your home than a storm can.
The best way to prevent these problems from happening is to encapsulate your crawl space. Using a vapor barrier and dehumidifier, the encapsulation process will seal off the crawl space from the outside, keeping the air dry. In addition, it will eliminate the risk of fungi and mildew growing in your crawl space.
Depending on your location and the size of your home, the cost of encapsulating your crawl space can be anywhere from $2,500 to $15,000 or more. This cost will depend on the materials and labor used.
Some companies offer free estimates to homeowners. Getting an estimate before beginning the project can help you avoid making mistakes that could cost you more money later.
A local contractor will be able to advise you on the best option for your home. It’s also possible to apply for a state or local tax rebate on an energy efficient project.
