What is an enclosed or encapsulated basement system?
An enclosure or encapsulation system seals your basement or crawl space off from the rest of your home. Even if you don’t have standing water in your basement, the slightest moisture can cause extensive damage to your home. The health of your basement or crawl space influences the health and comfort of the rest of your home. A basement enclosure or encapsulation system will create a healthier living environment for you and your family. Over fifty percent of the air you breathe in your home comes from your basement or crawl space, so you want that space to be as healthy as possible.

Some of the signs of a problem in your basement or crawl space include the following:
- Dirty, damp crawl space insulation or basement walls
- Open vents
- Bugs, pests, or mice
- Rusty metal surfaces
- Standing water or wet areas
