Seal your crawl space off from harmful outside elements
Crawl space encapsulation is rapidly becoming the standard for any contractor or homeowner with a wet, nasty or smelly crawl space. SouthernDry’s method of encapsulating a crawlspace includes completely sealing it up to protect the area from exterior elements of nature. By completely closing off the outside elements, you will reduce your energy usage, prevent moisture, and reduce bugs and critters.
Some crawl spaces may need waterproofing, foundation repair or even a specialized dehumidifier to reduce humidity. The great thing is, SouthernDry offers all of these services and they marry into our WhiteCap system perfectly. Once the complete system is professionally installed, the crawlspace becomes an excellent storage area and a much healthier environment.
Heavy-duty vapor barrier vs. plastic liners
We understand that some big box home improvement stores sell plastic sheeting marketed for encapsulating the crawl space. This material may be tempting to use, but this method costs way more in the long run as it quickly deteriorates in the crawl space environment and can give off a nasty odor. SouthernDry uses the WhiteCap vapor barrier system because its heavy-duty construction blocks musty odors and will serve as a vapor, gas and moisture barrier. WhiteCap will not easily puncture or breakdown over time, making it a permanent solution for your crawlspace problems.
A consultation with one of our expert crawl space inspectors can help determine if an encapsulation system is ideal for your home.
