Crawlspace Encapsulation in Raleigh, Charlotte, and Wilmington

Economy Exterminators now offers crawlspace encapsulation in our Raleigh, Wilmington, and Charlotte service areas! Our professionals will ensure that your crawlspace is properly sealed and protected from termite infestations, as well as any issues with moisture, air quality, & pests.

Unlike other companies, who only specialize in crawlspace encapsulation, Economy Exterminators understands that termites can infest structures behind the plastic that covers the interior foundation wall and lead to extensive damage in the wooden subfloor. Economy’s encapsulation leaves an inspection gap around the structure so that an annual termite inspection can be performed—thus, keeping up the termite warranty on the home. We want to ensure that pest problems are prevented and the air you breathe isn’t affected by crawl space moisture and humidity.

Before & After Encapsulation Service in Raleigh, Charlotte, & Wilmington

Vapor Barriers

The first step in controlling excess moisture in your crawlspace is installing a vapor barrier. A properly-installed vapor barrier prevents moisture-rich air from the ground from getting into the floor joists, insulation, foundation walls, & sub-flooring. We can also use a solution like a sump pump to help with the excess moisture that can cause musty smells & odors from entering your living space. No one wants a damp crawl space, so call one of our experts in Raleigh, Charlotte, or Wilmington to get your vapor barrier and more!

Dehumidifiers & Sump Pumps

A crawl space dehumidifier automatically keeps the humidity levels at a desired level in your newly encapsulated crawlspace, keeping the musty odors from affecting your indoor air quality. We use the Santa Fe Advance 2 & Aprilaire dehumidifiers to prevent water vapor from affecting your insulation, sub-floor, and joists in your home. We can also install Wayne or Zoeller sump pumps to help with reducing the amount of standing water into your crawl space. Our crawl space encapsulation experts serve customers in Raleigh, Wilmington, Charlotte, and surrounding areas, so contact us today to get your dehumdifier installed!

French Drain Installation

French drain pipes, also known as curtain drains, can divert water from your crawl space if the moisture problem is really severe. First, our crawlspace encapsulation experts in Raleigh, Charlotte, or Wilmington will determine where the moisture is coming into the crawlspace, dig a trench that is sloping to the lowest point drain (if it is functional) or a sump pump basin. After the trench has been dug, we install corrugated pipe and aggregate (typically gravel). French drains can help mitigate moisture problems that exist within a crawlspace, so call us today to get a free inspection!

"Great initial experience. Patient and informative consultation and estimate. My wife was home for the service call and she was treated with respect and kindness. I appreciated that since I couldn’t be home to meet the technician. We started a service with Economy and look forward to a long service partnership."
