Complete Crawlspace Encapsulation System
Once Aqua-Guard’s complete crawlspace waterproofing system is in place, the next step is encapsulation.
The encapsulation process completely seals off the crawlspace to all outside elements and brings the relative humidity level down.
The Problem with Ventilation in Crawlspaces
For years, the perceived solution for a damp crawlspace was to vent it and allow outside air to come in. We now know that venting to the outside can actually make the problem worse, especially during humid summers in areas like the Southeastern United States. When warm, humid air enters a cool crawlspace, the humidity turns into condensation and creates an extremely damp environment.
Did you know that 40% or more of the air you breathe in your home originated in your crawlspace? Aqua-Guard’s encapsulation system is a vital step in creating a healthy home.

Aqua-Guard’s Encapsulation System
In addition to closing off all outside vents and sealing the crawlspace door as tight as possible, Aqua-Guard Waterproofing’s encapsulation system uses a high-strength floor and wall liner called “Flex Seal” to completely close off the crawlspace. This ensures that outside air is not able to enter the crawlspace.
