Crawl Space Encapsulation
For Contractors, Builders, And Homeowners
The crawl space is one of those “out of sight, out of mind” areas of the home, but an unencapsulated crawl space can affect home comfort, safety, and performance. Threats include: intrusions of outside air and water or moisture, radon gas infiltration from exposed ground, mold, and pests.
The RVI Process
- Remove debris
- Grade floor
- 100% coverage of the ground with a vapor barrier
- Seal seams and penetrations of the vapor barrier
- Air seal and insulate foundation walls and rim joists

// The Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation
Crawl space encapsulation of Wisconsin homes and cabins turns an open, exposed environment into a controlled environment. RVI’s crawl space encapsulation contractors utilize the latest building science research and techniques to create safer, healthier, and more comfortable homes.
After crawl space encapsulation, you can expect:
- Better air quality throughout the living space.
- Energy efficiency improvements; some studies indicate a 20% reduction in energy costs after crawl space encapsulation.
- Fewer pest and critter problems.
- Improved durability of flooring, HVAC equipment, and other components in the crawl space.

I feel the cabin is dryer and more comfortable!
Sam did a good job for us. He stayed within the original quote, which we appreciated! He completed the work as he said in the timeline he gave us. And most of all, even though our work is “under the cabin and out of sight”, Doug and I feel the cabin is dryer and more comfortable! We also appreciated the finished pictures he sent and his communication with us was very helpful as we live nearly 7 hours away from the cabin!
