Crawl Space Encapsulation Process

Rapid Repairs’ crawlspace encapsulation system uses innovative, patented, and proprietary technology to create the only crawlspace vapor barrier system that is truly sealed without the use of mechanical fasteners. The reason Rapid Repairs uses this system and process is because our systems do not require drilling or shooting fasteners into your foundation to connect the liner. Inferior systems that require this method can create an inadequate seal that will eventually allow moisture intrusion.

1. Critical assessment of crawl space

2. Remove old insulation, resolve existing moisture issues, eliminate pests, and fix cracks

3. Spray foam insulation to seal holes, vents, and gaps around external pipes and ducts

4. Apply heavy-duty plastic vapor barrier on floor & walls

5. Secure sections together with tape or fasteners for seamless protection

6. Conduct yearly evaluations to ensure optimal performance (optional)
