Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Installation in Montgomery & Irondale, Alabama

If your home was built with a pier-and-beam foundation and includes a crawl space instead of a full basement, chances are good that you don't go down there very often. In fact, many homeowners have never even looked in their crawl space. That is a significant oversight.

Most crawl spaces have dirt floors and are vented to the outdoors. In the heat of summer, that allows hot air to enter your home. During the winter months, cold air comes in. These conditions are not good for your home. They cause condensation and high humidity, which can trigger structural problems related to the presence of mold, dust mites, dry rot, bugs, and other issues that a vented crawl space brings to the table. 

The solution? A crawl-space encapsulation system from Ox Foundation Solutions for homeowners throughout Alabama.

Installing a complete vapor barrier provides the crawl space with a moisture-protection layer to guard against the negative effects of excess moisture such as mold, floor failure, increased electricity costs, odors, insects, and dust mites. High relative humidity and moisture can also have major health effects on residents, causing or worsening conditions such as asthma, hay fever, allergies, and other respiratory conditions.

Vapor Barriers Provide Extra Protection in Hoover & Bessemer

A vapor barrier is used to resist moisture from entering through your wall, ceiling, or floor. Essentially, a vapor barrier's job is to create a layer of protection between your home and the crawl space beneath it. It's also useful as an energy-saving method so you can lower your heating bills while ensuring that your home feels more comfortable.

Here at Ox Foundation Solutions, we recommend having a crawl space encapsulation system installed in your crawl space. It takes less than a day to install and you'll have the best crawl-space application on the market, with noticeable results on every level of your home!

HealthyCrawl™ crawl space vapor barrier will block crawl-space moisture and solid gases from entering your home or office. As a 20MIL Woven Polyethylene Fire Retardant product, it is Class A fire-rated and will protect your structure from multiple perils. Combined the barrier with a crawl space liner and dehumidifier, like a Healthy Shield and Watchdog NXT85, and you will soon have the driest, healthiest crawl space in Alabama.

To solve the sloping floors we installed 8 steel crawl space jacks and to solve the moisture issue we installed the entire crawl space encapsulation system. We also add a dehumidification system to control the moisture. Of course, when you seal crawl space, you have to make sure you seal the entire space. So we sealed the vents as well as crawl space door with foam board for air tight access control.

At the time of the inspection of the crawl space area, no water was present in the area. Due to this our water management system or pump was not quoted in the repair plan. Changes in weather patterns and groundwater levels can change and may or may not require attention in the future. At any time if water intrusion is noted Ox Foundation Solutions will come back and install a needed system at the ADD-ON rates with the encapsulation system.
