- Crawlspace Encapsulation
When done properly, crawlspace encapsulation has the potential to improve indoor air quality (IAQ), offer high return on investment, increase home resale value, and more. When done improperly, however, this crawlspace upgrade can end up worsening existing moisture issues and even undermining your home's structural integrity.
If you're considering crawlspace encapsulation for your home in the Greenville or Spartanburg area, it's important to choose the right contractor for the job. At Benton Green Energy, we offer industry leading crawlspace repair services by drawing on our extensive building science knowledge and whole home approach to improving homes in Upstate SC.
Targeting Water Issues at the Source
At Benton Green Energy, crawlspace encapsulation is a two-part process. Part one is eliminating water issues at the source, while part two is sealing and encapsulating the crawlspace. Our team targets moisture, mold, and mildew issues by remediating existing mold and water and ensuring proper drainage with a sump pump.
Only after the crawlspace is clean and dry do we install a pool-grade vinyl barrier along the floor and walls of the foundation. This 20 mil thick vapor barrier keeps moisture and outside contaminants out, helping reduce humidity and improve IAQ — not just in the crawlspace but throughout the entire home.
Certified Building Science Experts
The Benton Green Energy team is made up of BPI certified building science experts. Whether you're trying to eliminate the musty odors in your crawlspace, keep unwanted pests out, or put an end to the cold floors you experience every winter, our home performance specialists understand how to resolve these issues, the right way.
In other words, we won't just eliminate the mold inside your crawlspace; we'll eliminate the source of the mold and implement improvements that keep mold out for good.

My gas bill last month was $92! And that includes the cost of hot water -- last year it was almost $300 and the house was always cold! Thanks for doing such a great job.
