When was the last time you inspected your crawl space? Your home’s crawl space provides easy access to plumbing, electrical, and structural repairs. However, unless there is a legitimate need to crawl underneath your Knoxville home, even the most responsible homeowners tend to avoid this damp and dirty area!

Unfortunately, if left unchecked, this space can become a breeding ground for microbial growth, excess moisture, potential flooding, rotting wood, and the perfect location for insects, termites, and other pests to thrive.

This unhealthy environment is also affecting the quality of air you and your family breathe every minute, every day. Studies have shown that up to 50% of the air you breathe flows from your crawl space. Incorporating a healthier indoor environment can improve your overall well-being, reduce annoying allergies and other respiratory issues.

Our encapsulation system is a comprehensive solution that will transform your crawl space into a clean, dry usable area, creating a healthier indoor air environment for you and your family.

Envirospace® is our unique vapor barrier made of heavy-duty polyethylene (poly) material that resists punctures and includes antimicrobial properties. This vapor barrier stops moisture at its source resulting in these benefits:

  • Improved indoor air quality. Our Envirospace® vapor barrier blocks moisture, reducing musty odors and improving your home’s air quality.
  • Increased structural stability. Encapsulation protects wooden structures and foundation components from the damaging effects of excess moisture.
  • Pest deterrence. Rodents and insects are less likely to infest a crawl space that is dry and sealed off from the outside.
  • Increased home value. Going the extra step by maintaining your crawl space can enhance your property's value and appeal.
  • Radon mitigation. Radon can enter homes through soil. Sealing the crawl space is part of a comprehensive strategy to reduce radon infiltration.

Your crawl space encapsulation starts with the installation of our Envirospace® vapor barrier. This durable 20 mil. plastic sheet material is professionally lined over the foundation walls and floor to create a continuous air and moisture barrier.

This material will ensure your crawl space is completely sealed, permanently preventing moisture, outside air, and pests from getting into your crawl space.
