Crawl Space Waterproofing

Full-Service Crawl Space Encapsulation in Windsor

Crawl space encapsulation is the installation of a heavy-duty polyethylene barrier that covers the crawl space's floors, foundation walls, and sometimes even its ceiling. An encapsulating barrier works in the same way that the lining of your swimming pool does to keep leaks at bay. The barrier works best when it entirely covers your home's crawl space. Sealing tape is used to connect the barrier's sections throughout the space, and once sealed, a dehumidifier helps regulate the moisture level in your crawl space.

Windsor crawl space encapsulation provides many benefits for the home owner including raises the value of your property, improves indoor air quality, and helps you prevent severe issues such as structural damage or insect infestation. Windsor Waterproofing is dedicated to resolving your crawl space issues in a fast and professional manner.

Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation

Waterproofing your crawl space is beneficial for many different reasons:

Improves Air Quality

Crawl space encapsulation encourages clean air to circulate throughout your home, which makes it a healthier space for your friends and family to be in. Moisture flourishes in crawl spaces that are not well-protected. Once the moisture has been removed, humid air cannot be pushed around your home.

Eliminates Insect Infestations

Insects, especially termites, need moisture to live. Crawl space encapsulation eliminates the possibility of pests to survive. You can eliminate the chances of insect infestation, serious damage, and the inconvenience that pests bring by addressing your crawl space needs with qualified encapsulation.

Prevents Mold and Mildew Growth

When moisture is removed from beneath your property, unwanted moisture problems are resolved. Furthermore, no musty, moist smells will enter into your home from your heating and cooling device.

Increases Energy Efficency

If your heating and cooling equipment isn't constantly fighting away damp air caused by a moist crawl space, it will use less energy. This ultimately lowers your monthly electricity expenses. Because of the increased energy efficiency it provides your home, crawl space encapsulation pays for itself in the long term.

Prevents Structural Damage

Preventing moisture build up in your crawl space is critical for the long-term durability of your foundation. When you keep moisture out of your crawl space, you stop it from seeping into the ground that surrounds your home's foundation. While gutters can help drain water away from your foundation, a wet crawl space beneath your home can still cause problems. Crawl space encapsulation avoids moisture retention and improves the long-term stability of your foundation.

Imporves the Comfort of your Flooring

The temperature of your home's hardwood and tile floors will be more comfortable to walk thanks to crawl space encapsulation. Encapsulation keeps your home from feeling moist and humid during the summer, and it keeps your feet toasty throughout the winter.

Improves Living Conditions

No one wants to become sick from spending time at home. Enclosing a home's crawl area gives your family a healthier environment to live and breathe.


Is it worth sealing my crawl space?Sealing your crawl space has many benefits with the main one being it helps to avoid structural damage. Moisture in your crawl area will eventually cause major damage to a building's structure. The vapour in your crawl space can destroy the timber framing and flooring in a home. Moisture is kept at bay by encapsulating the crawl space. Furthermore, encapsulation helps in the prevention of harmful pests such as termites.

How long does crawl space encapsulation last?Crawl space encapsulation typically lasts about 10-15 years. Recently moisture barrier manufacturers now provide materials that are designed to perform well for 20 years or more.
