These Vancouver, WA homeowners wanted to improve the air quality in their home and also decrease their heating and cooling costs. When our Energy Consultant crawled around under their home, he found a crumpled up vapor barrier, evidence of animal infestations, fiberglass batting hanging down, and gaps around the sill plate on the foundation wall.
This couple moved forward with a crawl space encapsulation. It helps dramatically improve air quality since almost 50% of the air you are breathing in a one-story home moves in to your home from the crawl space. By having the crawl space sealed and insulated so well, it will also help decrease utility costs. Two problems solved with one solution!
This homeowner in Lake Oswego knew there was mold growing under her home, and it was making them sick. This before photo shows the mold growing under her home. She wanted a permanent solution so they could enjoy their home; she chose to have us encapsulate the crawl space. With the SaniDry CX crawl space air system, the Smart Sump sump pump, and the encapsulation of her crawl space (see after photo), the mold does not have the environment it likes to grow.
The cover over the access to this crawl space wasn’t doing much to prevent critters from entering, so our crew installed a new crawl space door.
From quite the wet mess to a space where they can store items, this Sherwood, OR crawl space went through the encapsulation transformation!
