Skilled Crawl Space Encapsulation
100% Customer Satisfaction Guaranteed
The Crawl Space Encapsulation Company in Erie County, NY
The crawl space is the area in your home that is located between the floor and the ground. Crawl space encapsulation is the process of sealing up this area using insulation. It is one of the best things you can do to improve the quality of air inside your home.
At WNY Spray Foam, we take concrete steps in getting your crawl space sealed depending on the construction of your home. Our team uses a heavy-duty liner that is sealed to the foundation, foam any crack above the foundation wall, seal all outside ventilation vents, build air-sealed custom access doors and use waterproof tape on all liner seams.
Crawl space encapsulation is an excellent solution to solve moisture problems under the home. It prevents duct sweating, prevents mold, mildew, and also fungus growth. This method also keeps odor from entering your crawl space.
Frequently Asked Questions
In an effort to provide our customers with some knowledge and understanding of spray foam
insulation, we have compiled a list of some of the most common queries!
When the crawlspace of your home is encapsulated, it means that the entire crawl space has been sealed completely in white plastic. When you choose this method, you need to install a dehumidifier and a sump pump. This will reduce the risk of mold, and it makes for far cleaner air as well.
Choosing crawl space encapsulation means you have 100% of the ground covered in white plastic with all junctions and seams wholly sealed.
A vapor barrier is a different installation process. Instead of laying down 1005 white plastic, you are laying down 6mm of black plastic throughout the crawlspace floor. The vents are not sealed unlike with crawl space encapsulation, so there’s no need to use a dehumidifier.
Furthermore, vapor barrier installation doesn’t need a sump pump. It is also more affordable than crawl space encapsulation.
Yes, you can still insulate a crawl space with a dirt floor. Dirt floors allow moist air and water to enter the crawlspace. That’s why you need to hold back this moisture. The best way to do this is by crawl space encapsulation.
Below are some of the benefits of crawl space encapsulation.

Crawlspace encapsulation promotes proper air circulation throughout your home. It creates healthier air to breathe for you and your loved ones.
