Crawl Space Services

Approximately 50% of the air in your home comes from the crawl space, so you want to make sure it’s in good condition. That’s exactly what crawl space encapsulation does! We seal off the area underneath your home to keep moisture away from the subfloor and joists. This prevents mold and mildew from forming and then circulating around your home.

When you partner with us for crawl space encapsulation, we will:

  • Evaluate the crawl space, looking at the condition of the subfloor and insulation.
  • Collect relative humidity and moisture content samples throughout the space.
  • Inspect the foundation for cracks or other issues that are allowing water inside.
  • Create a vacuum by placing the crawl space under negative pressure while clearing out moisture-damaged materials.
  • Follow-up after the job is done to make sure the encapsulation is holding and doing its job.

Crawl Space Encapsulation Services

Once your crawl space has been encapsulated, you still have to keep the humidity level low. Ways to do this include making sure your foundation is insulated, improving drainage on your property, keeping vents closed, and installing a dehumidifier. The dehumidifier is the most efficient way to prevent humid air from building up and we can install one while performing a crawl space encapsulation.

We offer crawl space encapsulation services in:

Vapor Barrier Installation Services

Installing a vapor barrier is an important part of encapsulation. The barrier prevents water in the ground from evaporating into the crawl space and creating mold, mildew, and other moisture problems. This helps to prevent costly repairs and is a simple process when done by professionals.

Here’s how vapor barrier installation works:

  • We ensure your property has adequate drainage to prevent rainwater from seeping under your home.
  • A plastic moisture barrier is sized to your crawl space. We tape over any seams and secure it six inches up the wall.
  • To prevent air leaks, we insulate around rim joists.

Foundation French Drain Installation Services

A French drain is a trench that contains a perforated pipe surrounded by gravel, which prevents the perforations from being blocked. This reroutes water away from your home’s foundation to prevent the water from leaking inside. Most French drains have an exit that’s downhill but they can also flow uphill, making them a great option for any homeowner!

Signs you may need a french drain installed:

  • Water is accumulating in the basement.
  • Damp walls.
  • Foundation cracks.
  • Musty smell.

Crawl Space Foundation Repair Services

Most foundation problems are caused by water, whether it’s too much water causing soil to expand or running water eroding the soil that the foundation is resting on.

That’s where our foundation repair services come in.

When you trust Elite Moisture Solutions, we will:

  • Carefully inspect your property to find what’s causing the damage.
  • Pinpoint what sections of the foundation have been compromised.

  • Keep you updated throughout treatment so you know exactly what’s going on.

5 Star Review

I was very impressed with the prompt, polite and informative responses I received from this company. Information was communicated quickly and the employees were courteous and on time. I would recommend Elite.

5 Star Review

Elite Moisture was excellent! Highly recommend! We were building an addition to my home in Raleigh, water was getting into the crawlspace, so we needed a French drain and sump pump. We got several quotes but Elite Moisture was the only one who could complete the task in the time frame we needed. Excellent communications with Chris, the field crew, and Jennifer in the office. They were not the lowest bid, but the excellent customer service and professionalism made Elite Moisture Solutions the best choice.

I originally reached out to EMS as a 3rd candidate for a quote to encapsulate my crawlspace. After speaking in detail with Robert, I found him and the entire team at EMS to be extremely helpful in better understanding what my options were and the price point was perfect for my budget. The team worked quickly, cleaning out old insulation, clearing out any mold that was present, and sealing an entire 2700sqft space in 4 days. I would highly recommend EMS for their responsive nature and professionalism.
