Why You Should Love Crawlspace Encapsulation
« on: May 25, 2016, 08:09:03 PM »
      What is the purpose of a vapor barrier?
      What is the purpose of a french drain or encapsulation to your crawl space and what is the function of it?

              @TammyKnavel  there are so many reasons to love encapsulating your crawl space.
              1.) Clean environment
              2.) Energy efficiency
              3.) Increases home value
              4.) Detracts insects
              5.) Great storage area

                  Crawl space verses slabs.
                  Which is better to have?

                              would you really store your belongings in a crawl space even if it was encapsulated with plastic?

                                      i don't think its a good idea to put anything in the crawl space regardless of how nice it is.....its a crawl space. Not a livable area. Any type of water damage from above will only mess up your things...
