Your home is a system, and every part of that system plays a role that affects the rest of the structure. If your crawl space begins to rot, grow mold, or experience structural problems, this will extend to every part of your home. At Green Homes Long Island, we specialize in crawl space problems of all types. We offer free crawl space repair quotes.

Symptoms of a Crawl Space Problem

  • Mold

  • Dampness

  • Rodents/Bugs

  • High Energy Bills

  • Foul odors

  • Heightened allergies or asthma symptoms

Did you know that if you have a vented crawl space, a dirt floor crawl space, or a vented AND dirt crawl space, you have been paying higher energy bills than necessary for a long time?

Why? Because in the winter the vents let cold air in — cooling your floors and ducts. This is a major problem. In the summer, the vents let hot, humid air in, which warms your air conditioning ducts. Worse than this, as the moist air enters, it condenses on crawl space surfaces, adding moisture to your home. This causes mold, rot, odors, and more strain on your air conditioning system, since damp air takes more electricity to cool.

Crawl spaces are easy to ignore since you never go down there. But, studies show that fixing them can save up to 20% in heating and cooling costs!

Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation

Having an expert team like the Green Homes Long Island professionals install a crawl space vapor barrier and insulation will result in the following improvements:

  • Healthier Indoor Air Quality

Without appropriate crawl space encapsulation, moisture and pests can easily make their way inside. This can produce mold and other health hazards that spread through your home’s air. After encapsulation, you’ll be protected against hidden mold and other indoor air pollutants.

  • Greater Year-Round Comfort

With crawl space encapsulation, it’ll be easier to regulate the temperatures in your home during the summer and winter. You’ll avoid extra humidity and that muggy feeling throughout the hot months. Then in the winter, you will no longer have to deal with those uncomfortable cold floors.

  • Increased Energy Efficiency & Lower Bills

With an encapsulated crawl space, your air conditioning and heating systems won’t have to work as hard to keep you comfortable. This will result in greater energy efficiency and reduced monthly bills.

  • Durability

Without the potential for excessive moisture and mold, your home’s structure won’t be threatened, making it more durable. Whether you’re still living in your Long Island house in 20 years or if you decide to sell, you’ll be grateful for the protection crawl space encapsulation offers.

Crawl Space Vapor Barrier

The first step in crawl space encapsulation is to determine what exactly needs to be done. Our team can prescribe a comprehensive solution after an energy audit. Once we determine the precise issues, we’ll install a vapor barrier. This involves carefully laying down an extremely durable plastic barrier, helping to keep the space free of moisture and pests.

Crawl Space Insulation

Once a vapor barrier is installed, the crawl space requires insulation, which frequently involves spray foam to both insulate and air seal. The space will then need to be conditioned in some way. Often this means allowing a small amount of conditioned air from your HVAC system to make its way in, exhausting some air from the crawl space out, or installing a dehumidifier.
