Crawl Space Encapsulation in Indiana and Greater Indianapolis Area
The Ultimate Crawlspace Moisture Control and Vapor Barrier System!
Crawl Space Encapsulation is a newer process of promoting healthier and energy efficient homes over a dirt crawlspace. The process isolates the moisture from the dirt floor and the foundation walls by sealing the crawl with a heavy duty reinforced vapor barrier. The foundation vents are sealed and the crawlspace is conditioned. The crawlspace is treated as a part of the home.
Building Scientist have proven that vented, dirt crawlspaces are bad. If you ever been in one, then you know this is true. They are dark, damp, and smell moldy. Insulation is falling down and they are typically full of insects and critters. It has been proven that allowing outdoor air to enter the crawlspace causes condensation, mold growth, and higher energy bills. The best defense against these problems is to encapsulate your crawl space.
Indiana Crawl Space Repair can transform your damp, vented crawl space into dry and usable space by installing our encapsulation systems. We offer several liners ranging from 6 to 20 mil in thickness. Our system is the best solution to drying the crawl space because it prevents moisture from coming up fro the dirt floor and out of the porous concrete walls.
Our Crawl Seal Encapsulation Systems are backed by a LIFETIME WARRANTY against high humidity levels in your crawlspace. We also guarantee our 16-20 mil liners from ripping or tearing.
A 8-10 mil vapor barrier can be used as a method of reducing costs, but we highly recommend encapsulating your crawl space with 16-20 mil liners to take advantage of our No rips and tears warranty.

Why is an Encapsulated Crawlspace so Important
Even if you dread going into your crawl space because it’s nasty, it’s important to take care of your crawl for your home’s safety and family’s health. If you are avoiding your crawl space because it’s damp, you most likely have a crawl space problem.
The floor structure holding your home off the ground is made up of wood that is susceptible to mold growth and rot. If your foundation or floor system is damaged, it will affect the safety of your home and decrease your home’s value. The Real Estate Disclosure Act requires homeowner’s to tell potential buyers about foundation and moisture problems. These crawlspace problems can discount your home up to 10-15%.
Most crawlspaces have duct systems that circulate air throughout your home. If there is mold in your crawlspace, then that air is being circulated through your home causing your family to breath in MOLD! A damp crawl space is a conducive environment for dust mites, mold, and bugs, which can cause serious health problems.
