Crawl Space Encapsulation in Montana and Wyoming

Encapsulating your crawl space is a very effective way to seal the area completely and keep it protected from damage. Typically, encapsulation is done in conjunction with dehumidifier installation to ensure that moisture can’t get in.

Structural issues are commonly related to your crawl space and could usually have been prevented if recognized sooner. If yours isn’t protected, it’s critical to have a professional inspection done to see what kind of damage your home might be subject to. The team at Yellowstone Structural Systems will check your crawl space and basement and consult with you about any damages, or areas of concern, and the best solutions to correct them.

Reasons to Protect Your Crawl Space

Crawl spaces affect the health of a structure more than most homeowners realize. Considering most people don’t see much of their crawl space, it’s easy to understand why. Mold grows very easily in crawl spaces, putting the air quality in your home at risk. Additionally, if there’s enough condensation for mold to grow, it’s likely that the wood beams and joists holding up your home are being affected, too. Unsealed crawl spaces also let in pests and can greatly increase your utility bills.
