Barricade Your Home Against Moisture

Encapsulation and vapor barrier services in the Toano, Williamsburg, Richmond and Virginia Beach, VA areas

Some crawl spaces are saturated with moisture due to leaky pipes, poor yard grading and high humidity. With this much moisture at play, homes need more than just a moisture treatment. A sealant might be needed to regulate the temperature and moisture level in the crawl space.

If your home is subject to high moisture levels, call Landlock Pest Control. Our encapsulation services include:

  • Lining the floor and foundation walls with overlapping sheets of heavy polyethylene plastic to protect your crawl space and prevent damage to wood.
  • Insulating the foundation walls and using the existing HVAC system to heat and cool the crawl space to the same temperature as the rest of the house.
  • Installing a dehumidifier to regulate temperature and moisture levels and expel unwanted moisture from the crawl space through a ventilation line.

Why encapsulate your crawl space? Crawl space encapsulation improves the temperature regulation and energy efficiency of your home, ultimately lowering the cost of your utility bill. If you want to stop moisture in its tracks and reap the rewards of this service, make an appointment with Landlock Pest Control today.

Prevent condensation with a vapor barrier

Vapor barriers are a must-have in Virginia homes. With our humid climate comes condensation - and lots of it. A vapor barrier helps to prevent pooling water on the floor of crawl spaces from evaporating into the wood. The durable material acts as a barrier between the ground and your home's subflooring.

These barriers are normally made of polyurethane, and come in varying thicknesses. Landlock Pest Control carries and installs 4 mil, 6 mil and 12 mil vapor barriers. Our crew will examine your crawl space and moisture levels to determine the appropriate vapor barrier material for your home.
