Vented crawl spaces are out and encapsulation is in! 

Encapsulation is today’s standard in building design for those homes with crawl spaces. Sealing the crawl space keeps out water and moisture and all of the problems that come with it. Crawl space water and moisture:

    After

    A Forked River homeowner wanted to improve his crawl space with a better alternative than traditional vapor barriers. For better or worse, crawl spaces are a chronic problem for homeowners when it comes to water, moisture, and mold issues. Many homeowners in New Jersey, especially those from the Jersey Shore who live near large bodies of water, are often faced with crawl space issues. This Forked River homeowner, like many homeowners who live in towns near the Barnegat Bay, was no exception.

    For this homeowner, we installed a full “CleanSpace” Encapsulation System. “Cleanspacing” transforms chronically wet, damp crawl spaces into clean, dry areas that keeps away water and moisture.

    A Toms River homeowner, who lives near the Barnegat Bay, was plagued with a chronically wet crawl space. Due to the high water table, his crawl space had at least an inch of standing water throughout the year due to groundwater seepage. Fortunately, Crawl Space Solutions by Cowleys was call in to save the day. 

    This Toms River homeowner contracted with Cowleys for a full Clean Space install. An important part of the encapsulation process is installing a special Everlast vent cover. These covers, which can be installed against wood framing or masonry, close off outside air and moisture from entering the crawl space through the exterior vents.  These covers not only work well, but, as shown in the pictures, are aesthetically pleasing. Made with a hard durable plastic, they stand up to the worst weather conditions, and, unlike wood vents, these covers are completely maintenance free. They never rot, warp, or crack and they never need to be painted. Even though these vent covers completely seal the vents from the outdoor elements, they are easy to open if you need to access your crawl space to have repairs done or for storage (another benefit of encapsulation — a clean, dry area for storage!). To open these vent covers, all you need to do is twist a few knobs, and you’re in! The attached pictures show the outside of the crawl space of this Toms River home before and after one of these vent covers was installed.

Why choose Crawl Space Solutions By Cowleys?

crawlspace-home

Crawl spaces can spell trouble. As a subterranean space, they are often the primary point of entry for water and moisture, and they are the root cause of many home problems – including problems that affect your family’s health.

The “Solutions” in Crawl Space Solutions by Cowleys stands for:

  • long-run, permanent solutions over temporary short-term fixes
  • proactive protection to cost-effectively address potential problems

To achieve the benefits of an encapsulated crawl space you need more than just the materials. Effective encapsulation is only as good as the contractor. And we do it right. We will seal your floor with a heavy-duty vapor barrier that sets the standard for durability and attach it to rigid board insulation to form a tight seal between the floor and ceiling. We also offer a thick, flexible insulating mat that can be installed under the liner to prevent heat loss to the ground and protect the liner from damage from stones and traffic. We custom cut our rigid board insulation to properly insulate rim joists and we close the vents with insulation to prevent humid air from wafting into the crawl space. A major source of moisture is blocked for good. Also, we install an airtight access hatchway to the outside so the outside air stays outside.

This comprehensive solution represents crawl space encapsulation at its finest with homeowners benefitting from years of uninterrupted crawl space protection no matter how saturated the soil around your home from rain or snow.
Servicemen will appreciate this when they need to enter the space for plumbing repairs. Depending on the size of your crawl space, you will now have usable storage space. And when you are ready to sell your home, you’ll be worry-free when the home inspector takes a peak down below!
