Crawl Space Encapsulation DIY
Crawl Space Encapsulation Products
So by now I’m sure you have heard of Cleanspace™, SilverBack™, Crawl Shield and the many other crawl space vapor barriers that pop up on the market weekly. So, what’s the difference? Well, as near as we can tell there are a few things that set the “Brands” apart from the copies. After all, these vapor barriers are mandatory for your crawl space encapsulation project. Here’s what we found.
Warranty– The most valuable liners are the ones that offer a product warranty on the crawl space vapor barrier itself. So, of course this probably does not cover poking a hole in the crawl space liner with the screwdriver in your back pocket, but at least for one it does include delamination.
Crawl Space Encapsulation Companies
Find some of the best and most experience contractors in the United States. It’s true, many companies are unskilled and should not be charging customers for crawl space encapsulation. There are some ways to avoid getting the wrong company….
Make sure they are licensed– Even if your state does not require a license to sell crawl space encapsulation jobs, find a company that has one anyway. This means they take their work seriously and will have other requirements such as insurance already in place.
Crawl Space Dehumidifiers
Crawl space dehumidifiers come in a large range of both quality and sizes. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard a homeowner say “What?! Is it made of gold?” No they are not made of gold, but they do prevent the organism that is referred to as gold, MOLD. So no homeowner has ever seriously said “mold is gold”, but the mold industry has.
The truth about crawl space mold and mildew is you have a much better chance of getting hit by a car than you do getting the deadly “black mold” that has everyone on the run. Many of the mold species are black, but that does not mean it is the deadly kind.
