Oddly enough, we resisted crawl space encapsulation like the plague because of the devastating side effects it causes to foundations, framing, and the terrible health issues our customers were experiencing. This was and still is observed through our foundation repair business to date. Being unregulated, most trades having anything to do with a crawl spaces are claiming to be experts in encapsulation and they are anything but.
An improperly encapsulated crawl space can cause life threatening , irreversible health issues from things like trapped radon, mold spores, methane gas, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and argon to name a few. Today’s energy efficient building codes and products already promote an airtight living space and when you add in an improperly encapsulated crawl space you are creating a ticking time bomb.
Great News! When you choose Atlantic Foundation & Repair for your encapsulation we ensure all projects are engineered, designed,and installed to prevent a buildup of poisonous gasses and induced foundation failures.
