Encapsulation / Vapor Barrier
Moisture is one of the most damaging elements to a structure’s foundation. With our general contracting background, CNT is your best choice for a full service foundation and structural repair contractor. We can accurately diagnose the cause of crawl space moisture, and more importantly, we have the tools and experience to mitigate it. Whether it’s a simple vapor barrier or an intense situation requiring pumping stations and/or complete encapsulation, CNT has the knowledge to keep your home’s foundation permanently dry and worry-free.
Heat flows naturally from a warmer place to cooler places throughout your home through the process of conduction. Insulation is a vital element to your home’s energy efficiency. As general contractors, CNT understands your structure in its entirety and is not incentivized to sell you a product in lieu of the correct fix. Your home’s HVAC system is sized to heat and cool only your living space. It does not include attic, crawl space or other unconditioned areas. Proper insulation in your crawl space is vital to maintaining your home’s efficiency. Do not be confused by companies wanting to sell you vapor barriers or encapsulations in lieu of insulation. These systems are designed as moisture control measure, not thermal control measures. The building code is very specific on insulation requirements for a structure. Yet another reason for having a General Contractor, who has a thorough understanding of building codes, is your best choice for all of your foundation repair needs.
CNT can provide 3 insulation choices: craft faced fiberglass, open-cell spray foam, or closed cell spray foam all of which can help maximize your home’s energy efficiency potential.
