Many homeowners never think twice about their crawl space, but it’s a spot that creates numerous problems as years go by and moisture builds up. The area beneath your home is cool, dark, and damp, making it a breeding ground for dangerous mold. Left unchecked, wood rot could even overtake your home.
Since 2012, Michigan Basements has been providing crawl space encapsulation solutions to Walled Lake, Michigan, and the rest of West Oakland’s Lakes Area. Michigan Basements provides airtight crawl space encapsulation for water and moisture mitigation. When we encapsulate the floor and walls of the crawl space area, we create a perfectly sealed system so vapor, moisture, and harmful gases do not rise up through your home.
Is water damaging your basement or crawl space? A small leak seems like a minor annoyance at first, but it can become a huge problem over time.

What is Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Crawl spaces — especially dirt crawl spaces — are often poorly-insulated and at risk of holding moisture. This can lead to major mold problems in your home.
To combat this problem, the crawl space encapsulation process includes wrapping every part of a crawl space with a moisture barrier, including the foundation walls, foundation piers, floor joists, and the ground itself. A crawl space moisture barrier (also known as a crawl space vapor barrier) is a special piece of sheeting used to seal off areas and prevent the accumulation of moisture. The added insulation provided by this process can also improve your home’s energy efficiency and lower your electricity bills. As an added bonus, an encapsulated crawl space keeps rodents and insects out of your home, too.
However, simply laying a vapor barrier down won’t make much difference. If a crawl space vapor barrier is not installed correctly, excess moisture will continue to cause crawl space problems. In fact, if the vapor barrier does not function properly, it could make a moisture issue worse by insulating and accelerating mold growth, leading to rot.
Luckily, when you partner with Michigan Basements, there’s no need to worry. Michigan Basements has years of experience fixing wet basements, performing waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation, and foundation repair throughout southeast Michigan.
Benefits of Installing A Crawl Space Vapor Barrier
Encapsulation is the method of protecting a crawl space from excess moisture. In most cases, this is accomplished by installing a vapor barrier on the floor and up the wall of the crawl space. Encapsulation helps in many ways, including:
- Improved indoor air quality
- Improved energy efficiency
- Reduced soil gases (such as radon and methane) entering the home
- Elimination of musty odors and moisture with lower humidity level
- Protection of your home from dry rot and wood rot
- Reduced allergens from mold and dust mites throughout the home
- No mess—usually same-day installation!
The cost of crawl space encapsulation will vary depending on several factors, such as the crawl space size and how your home was constructed, but Michigan Basements will do everything we can to help you save money and protect your home against structural damage.
