Crawlspace Encapsulation Service

Is your home suffering from a damp crawlspace that is exposing your structure to potential problems?

Potential problems that can arise from high humidity or damp crawlspaces:

  • Mold or moisture damage in the crawl space or living area
  • Musty odors in the living area
  • Condensation (“sweating”) on air conditioning ductwork or equipment
  • Condensation on insulation, water pipes or truss plates in the crawl space
  • Buckled hardwood floors
  • High humidity in the living area
  • Insect infestations
  • Rot in wooden framing members

Services Offered

  • Vapor barrier replacement/installation
  • Insulation
  • Crawlspace encapsulation
  • Whole home dehumidifiers

As energy initiatives continue to push builders to create more and more efficient homes, crawlspaces industry best practices have begun to evolve. Crawlspaces were once believed to be best left open and able to “breathe” as they were vented to the outside air. The idea was by allowing them to self-regulate they would be able to maintain a consistent equilibrium and avoid potential issues. However, a study that was completed in North Carolina has provided evidence that vented crawlspace do not regulate as well as we once believed and create a variety of potential hazards listed above. Based on this studies finding, these areas were actually much more susceptible to high levels of RH, moisture buildup due the environment reaching its dew point, and becoming a host more major mold issues.

The solution to these issues is the newer concept of encapsulated crawlspaces. By applying a thick layer of plastic to the earth, shifting insulation from the under the floors in the floor joists to the walls, and ducting a vent into the now seal crawlspace it allows the crawlspace to become a controlled environment. This makes the crawlspace a control environment similar to the rooms in your home which increases your heating and air efficiencies, nearly eliminates humidity issues, and creates a strong barrier to deter pests. These new systems are rapidly gaining in popularity due to the wide array of advantages and savings.

From my first call to Progressive’s office, my conversation with the electrical manager, through the end of the job when all was done, Progressive did a great job for me. They were very professional, friendly, and flexible. The work was to relocate receptacles and switches from a wall that was being removed from our house, and also to add receptacles to another room. They sent two men who had to spend several hours both under and in our house. I recommend them highly and will use them again.

Brian performed maintenance check on the HVAC (I hope I used the correct term). His visit was just a few days we experienced unusually cold weather in mid-October. He was very helpful by providing answers to my questions. He also explained things that I was not aware of. I did not like the programmable thermostat and he replaced it with a simple thermostat which I understood much better than the programmable. I now feel much more comfortable after he inspected the system.

I had Progressive install a new tankless water heater. The technicians name was Larry and his helpers name was martin. They were both very polite and their work looks very neat. We are very happy with our new tankless heater.

We have had our HVAC replaced by this company and have a current service contract and loved them.Darryl who worked with us was great. The greatest part of the company though is how attentive, helpful, and responsible Kat was! She was constantly available and providing any assistance we needed.
