As a second home for this family, they were very concerned with moisture in the home. Since they lived on a creek, something needed to be done.
Home Energy Shield's solution is to encapsulate the entire crawlspace by first applying a mold treatment help remove pollutants and provide better indoor air quality. We then air sealed the rim joists to reduce heat loss and cold air infiltration by using a combination of expanding foam and insulation board. A vapor barrier was then placed to protect the crawlspace and eliminates moisture. Finally, a dehumidifier is installed to optimize dry air.
