With the holiday season upon us and temperatures dropping, it’s time to start preparing your home for winter. Cold floors, bursting pipes, and high energy bills are often the primary concerns of homeowners. One of the best ways to prepare for winter is crawl space encapsulation. If you have a crawl space that is not properly sealed and insulated, you will definitely feel the cold temperatures in Chicago during winter.
What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation
There are many different types of crawl space encapsulation methods available today. Avoid cheap and non-permanent solutions such as plastic tarp or concrete. The goal with crawl space encapsulation is to create a dry conditioned space. What often is missed is proper insulation as well.
