A crawl space is a small space between the ground and the home that provides a buffer between the home and the earth below. The earth underneath the home is very damp and moves frequently, impacting the foundation. Having crawl space encapsulation Ann Arbor helps to protect against this excess humidity by installing a vapor barrier as insulation to protect your home's foundation.
Most homes with a well-built crawl space may never have to get crawl space encapsulation. This is because proper drainage keeps rainwater away and keeps the crawl space dry. Additionally, the low humidity of the climate may minimize the need to get encapsulation. However, if your home's crawl space is damp and experiences high humidity, this can cause major structural damage to your foundation.
