Before and After Pictures from Henrico
Encapsulating a Henrico, VA Crawl Space

Before After
Encapsulating a Henrico, VA Crawl Space Encapsulating a Henrico, VA Crawl Space

We met this homeowner at a home show, where they asked us to come to inspect their crawl space because they were interested in encapsulating it due to moisture and mildew-mold concerns. This section of the crawl space is under an addition. The vapor barrier is unsealed, allowing moisture to rise from the ground and contribute to high relative humidity. Microbial growth is beginning on the floor joists and the fiberglass insulation is beginning to sag and fall.

The old materials have been removed, vents sealed, and the sill plate and rim band have been sealed as well. The CleanSpace vapor barrier has been installed with all seams overlapped and sealed. The moisture barrier is also run up the walls 6-8 inches above outside grade. The walls are prepped for spray foam insulation to be applied.

The conditioned space shared with these knee walls was sweltering in the summer and freezing in the winter due to sharing a wall with an unconditioned attic space. We installed insulation in the wall cavities and covered it with Tyvec to create an air barrier and better insulate the wall. We also installed insulation on the floor of the space to prevent air loss from the room below.

Crawl Space Repair Experts

Your crawl space is often out of sight and thus out of mind, but that doesn't mean your crawl space isn't important. In fact, issues with your crawl space can often make their presence felt throughout the rest of your home. Many crawl spaces are vented, and this ineffective practice often makes them the perfect home for mold, pests, and more. The air that passes through this crawl space will then pick up these contaminants and bring them into the rest of your home. This air can also prove a source of cold floors and costly drafts.

The experts at The Drying Co./ThermalTec can help you transform your crawl space from a detriment into an asset. With crawl space encapsulation we can completely seal your crawl space to prevent the drafts and pests that can make it a filthy space in the first place. We also offer other crawl space repair solutions like crawl space insulation, dehumidifiers, and support jacks.

Work Requests From Henrico, VA
Vicinity of Lakewood Dr in Henrico
Replace vapor barrier in crawl space. Moisture issues.
Vicinity of Weldon Drive in Henrico
Water in crawl space, French drains needed inside and out
Vicinity of Danley Lane in Henrico
Following a decent amount of precipitation, the water seems to sit on top of a clay layer around my property as well as around my house until it slowly infiltrates. The issue is within my crawlspace. Due to the location of my HVAC system in the crawlspace, it's becoming an issue after each heavy rainfall as it slightly floods. It seems like the only fix at this point is a sump pit, which is why I'm reaching out.
Vicinity of New Berne Road in Henrico
I have some floor joist that are sagging and causing uneven counter tops in my kitchen.

Vicinity of Wedgewood Ave in Henrico
Our house was built in 1931, and we've noticed the HVAC system struggles on very hot or cold days. We can also feel noticeable temperature differences in different areas of the house. We'd like to know what we need to do to make the house more live-able and save on heating/cooling costs.
Vicinity of Swartwout Ave in Henrico
We had some mold issues in the past in our crawlspace and I believe that we have stopped the mold from growing, but I'd like to have someone come out and remove any left over mold and verify that it's not continuing to grow. If it is continuing to grow, I'd also like to get a quote to get the entire crawlspace encapsulated. So I'd like to get two separate quotes if possible. Quotes -Mold Removal and verification that it won't continue to grow. -Crawlspace encapsulation (if moisture is still an issue in the crawl space). Thanks!
