How Much Does Crawl Space Encapsulation Cost in Alabama? Here’s your answer.

crawl space encapsulation

Crawl space encapsulation has become a hot topic for Alabama homeowners. Alabama’s warm and humid conditions can invite a variety of problems into your crawl space that, left unattended, could threaten the structural integrity of your home and could even expose your family to hidden health risks.

As a trusted provider of crawl space waterproofing and air quality services in Alabama, we get the following questions a lot from concerned homeowners.

What is crawl space encapsulation?

How does crawl space encapsulation work?

How much does it cost to encapsulate my crawl space?

We’ve put together this simple introduction to help you get up to speed on this popular home protection strategy and understand the most common crawl space repair options.

What is crawl space encapsulation?

In the most basic terms, crawl space encapsulation can mean any combination of techniques, materials, and equipment used to seal the open space between your floor and the ground below to protect it from the harmful effects of pests and unwanted moisture.

Depending on the size, placement, and condition of your home and foundation, crawl space encapsulation could involve a mix of several of these common remedies:

  • Engineered single- or multi-layer vapor barrier material in varying thicknesses (commonly ranging between 12mil – 90mil in thickness)
  • Seals and doors to protect vents, utility penetrations, and entryways against pests and water
  • Drainage enhancements to draw water out and away from the crawl space
  • One or more sump pumps to manage chronic storm or groundwater infiltration
  • Dehumidification treatment to maintain clean, dry, mold-free air (we recommend Sante Fe dehumidifiers)
  • Extra insulation in problem areas to reduce temperature extremes

Finding a trustworthy crawl space encapsulation contractor you can trust

Beware of high-pressure scare tactics and 1-size-fits-all solutions.

Make sure to get answers to all your price and warranty questions before you sign any repair contracts.

When in doubt – always check with your local Better Business Bureau to ensure the company you are working with has an A+ rating.

And remember – you can always count on SouthernDry for a free & honest quote or project price comparison.

How does crawl space encapsulation work?

  1. Cleaning and preparation of the crawl space, including removal of construction debris and any stones or sharp materials that could puncture the vapor barrier
  2. Installation or repair of supplemental drainage enhancements, which may include improvements to external gutter and rain spout systems
  3. Installation of the correct thickness of vapor barrier material, which may be self-adhesive or be held in place with specialized tape or fasteners
  4. Installation of seals and/or sealing materials around crawl space vents, doors, or places where utility connections come into the crawl space area
  5. Placement and connection of one or more optional sump pumps
  6. Placement and connection of optional dehumidifiers

The main point of crawl space encapsulation is to protect your home by keeping destructive water, mold, allergens, humidity and pests out, and to make sure that conditions remain stable, clean, and healthy on the inside. As a bonus, additional benefits often include improved energy costs and a boost to your home’s resale value.

It’s important to know that although similar materials and equipment are involved, virtually every encapsulation job is unique (or at least it should be – remain wary of companies offering a 1-size-fits-all approach). Because of this dynamic, costs can vary a lot depending on the age and size of your home and on the current condition of your crawl space.

The right encapsulation partner will help you come up with an affordable solution that fits your individual needs.

How much does crawl space encapsulation cost in Alabama?

According to surveys by online home improvement hubs like HomeAdvisor, Angi, or Thumbtack, national price averages are pretty consistent across all regions in the U.S.

In the state of Alabama, a low end or basic job runs around $5,000 and a high end or extensive job may run as high as $25,000, with a midpoint averaging around $12,500. Before you succumb to sticker shock, it’s important to remember that these are broad state-wide averages, and not necessarily what you’ll pay locally.

If crawl space encapsulation is right for your home, it may be more affordable than you think. Here are the top factors that are most likely to influence your costs:

  1. Vapor barrier material selection. You can choose a variety of standard thicknesses ranging from 6 to 20 millimeters. Material cost averages between $0.15 to $0.50 per square foot, with installation labor running between $2.00 to $4.00 per square foot.
  1. Sealing tape. Specially designed four-inch wide tape to anchor the vapor barrier material in place and provide a continuous seal at the edges comes in 180 foot rolls. You can expect to pay around $50 per roll and it can take as many as four rolls to finish an average-sized crawl space.
  1. Sealing materials for doors and vents. Vent seals can range in price from $10 to $20 each, and a properly sealed access door could run you anywhere from $50.00 to over $100, excluding installation labor.
  1. Drainage solutions. These costs depend on the size and condition of each crawl space. For a simple French drain trench in affected areas, drainage rock is sold by the cubic yard at a unit rate of about $0.30 – $0.40. Perforated pipe prices range anywhere from under $0.50 to over $3.00 per linear foot.
  1. Sump pump units. Bare equipment cost (excluding installation labor) for a crawl space sump pump can range from under $500 for a basic model to over $2000 for an advanced unit with extra stages and features such as digital monitoring and a battery backup.
  1. Dehumidifier units. Large capacity, low-maintenance dehumidifiers can cost anywhere from $850 to $3200, depending on the features you need and how much upkeep you’re willing to do. This is bare equipment cost excluding installation labor.
  1. Local permitting fees. In some jurisdictions, you’ll need to leave room in your budget for applicable building permits. Your encapsulation partner should fully disclose these costs in their estimate with clear instructions on who is responsible for obtaining them. Permit fees in Alabama tend to run around $8 to $9 per $1,000 in construction valuation for existing homes, but may not be required in your locality.
  1. Labor costs and installer fees. In most cases, you will receive an itemized proposal or estimate based on an overall unit cost including all labor, equipment, and materials. When you reach out to a crawl space encapsulation expert for an evaluation, it’s important to ask direct questions about how they break down their estimates and how you know you’re getting competitive value for what they’re asking you to spend.

Material and labor aside, here is what we are seeing locally so far in Alabama in 2021 as far as the cost to encapsulate a crawl space home.

How to save money on crawl space encapsulation

For a project this important to the security and longevity of your home, it pays to choose cost-cutting opportunities wisely. With some research and elbow grease it is possible to bring the job in below market averages with a good end result. The risk goes up when you work with a company that cuts corners on quality to get you to sign off on a deceptively low bid.

Here are a few of the best cost saving opportunities we’ve seen in the Birmingham area:

  1. Do the initial clean out, debris removal, and preparation yourself.
  2. Choose a less expensive vapor barrier. There’s an optimum thickness that’s best for the condition of your home. After that, the cost benefit stops going up with the price.
  3. Find out if the lower priced sump pump or dehumidifier will do the job. Some jobs can be completed by grading the landscape instead of using a sump pump.
  4. See if self-adhesive vapor barrier is available in your area. This speeds installation (saving some labor dollars) and reduces the need for other fastening materials.
  5. Ask if spray foam insulation will work in your situation. This can be a lower cost alternative to fiberglass insulation on more extensive jobs.
  6. Shop around for the right crawl space encapsulation partner. Compare bids on an itemized basis and check references to ensure the company is reputable.

Do I need a crawl space maintenance plan?

An annual crawl space maintenance plan is a great way to ensure years of worry-free living in your home.

Maintenance plans are offered by most reputable contractors in Alabama and include an annual inspection of your crawl space and any new equipment, such as sump pumps, vapor barriers, drainage and dehumidifiers. Inspections are usually performed on a yearly or seasonal basis. Air quality and moisture conditions will also be assessed during your inspection.

Because the fight against mother nature is an ongoing battle, maintenance plans are a great way to refresh your defense systems on an ongoing basis while protecting your home.

They followed up the next day and even a few weeks later to make I’m still satisfied. They also sent me cookies as a thank you gift! I would 100% recommend them to anyone.read more

We discovered some cracks in our brick and mortar on the exterior back of our house. Southern Dry performed a thorough... inspection and provided options that some of the other companies that we had perform an estimation had not considered. They inspected the crawl space to determine if the cracks extended to the footer. This was the only company to perform this inspection for us thanks to Brian. I felt like Southern Dry was honest and did not push me to perform something that was unnecessary. Southern Dry provided an estimate that was comparable to others I received, but with the added thoroughness, which gave us peace of mind. Southern Dry called me with their install date and worked with me to make sure the install was done without damaging my yard and bushes as much as possible. The gentlemen that performed the installation welcomed questions and provided good feedback, they were diligent and cleaned up after they installed the helical piers for our house. After the installation, I received a follow-up to ensure our satisfaction. Overall I have a great impression of Southern Dry for these types of services.read more

I had some concerns about a few things and I never felt pressured to write a check until all those concerns were met. They took my concerns seriously, explained the process of the system, fixed a few details, and now my basement is completely dry after rain!! My husband and I were very impressed that the owner, John, came to look at our basement to make sure everything was in great working order afterwards. Because they did such a wonderful job with our home we choose to use them again with a footing issue we were having with our business building. Calvin (who did our estimate before) came right out and put my mind at ease about what they could do that would make our building safe again. When you run into problems like the ones we were having it is a breathe of fresh air to have a company work so hard to give you a feeling of security back. I will continue to use Southern Dry in the future and would recommend them to anyone that would need these services.read more

SouthernDry was very timely. After dealing with other contractors who would take months, they showed up in less than a... week to look at my issues. They were very knowledgeable, honest, and straightforward. I was given a quote immediately after the inspection for work that would help fix my issue. That quote was consistent throughout the entire process. Their inhouse financing was simple and easy to apply for. They were very good at notifying me about timeline changes due to overages on other jobs. The crew was very respectful, quick, and clean. John was always available if I had questions. Overall terrific experience and I would highly recommend SouthernDry for any crawlspace or foundation problems you may have.read more

The crew was fantastic... very professional, super kind, and explained our system to us in great detail before wrapping up the job. Our hardwoods had started cupping from humidity.

Very professional company and the work performed was first rate. I would highly recommend this company and I highly... recommend having your crawl space properly sealed and a dehumidifier installed. I had check pricing from several different companies in my area that do this kind of work and they were the most reasonable. I live in Alexandria AL which is in the deep South with very humid weather. I had some serious moisture damage this fall with mold forming from a clogged HVAC unit under my house. Water was puddling onto the plastic under my house, I was not aware of this and it had been going on for several months. By the time I discovered it the damage had already been done to my house flooring. Thank goodness the homeowners insurance covered the floor repair to the tune of $30,000. I wanted to make sure this would never be an issue again even if I had some kind of water leak. They completely clean out all the old plastic, vacuumed the under side of the flooring and removed any construction trash from under the house and then properly sealed my crawl space. My dehumidifier has an app that I can check anywhere in the world and see my temp and humidity levels under my house. There is also a water sensor installed so if water is detected, it will send me a message.I could not be happier and it was worth every penny!read more

Everyone I spoke with from Southern Dry was top notch. I prefer doing business with people who are average, regular,... down-home folks trying to make an honest living. If you're like me and want someone straight up to give you a reasonable quote on your repairs, call Calvin. They were fast, gave me a date to begin, started that morning early and did a fantastic job. Juan was the foreman on my project and if I had a question he had an answer for me. He was extremely nice and knowledgeable about what was being fixed and done. I was never left in the dark about anything. I had some pretty major foundation issues on one side of my newest house. The back sill plate was rotten and the floor was sagging from no support in the rear. Juan and the crew installed 6 piers, replaced the sill plate, cleaned the crawlspace completely, installed 5 jack supports, encapsulated it all and installed a dehumidifier and battery back up, and made me a 2 new doors in 3 days! So Calvin, Russ, John, Juan, and the other crew, thank you for a job well done. The house looks a million times better! I really appreciate it!read more

Entire team was very professional. They were excellent at communicating what needed to be done. They were always on... time and let you know every step of the process. There was no high pressure sales techniques. They give you the quote and you can start on your timeline. Just call them when you are ready. I got quotes from the more widely advertised foundation repair companies as well and SouthernDry gives you the same product and same warranty at a great price. They worked hard to work around the landscaping. They also did an excellent job of cleaning up. I highly recommend them.read more

Forgive me for the long review, but great service is hard to find these days. When it’s found, it should be celebrated.... John and his crew were incredible from day 1. Water was pooling in our crawl space on a new construction and we were eager to have it resolved quickly to avoid the formation of mold and spores and potential health hazards for our family. John came out immediately and assessed the situation, explained all the issues, and developed a plan. We had a guaranteed price in our hands within minutes; fair middle road pricing for extremely high quality work. Many estimates came in 2x higher, just fyi. There was plenty of trash and construction debris left under the house from the contractors; SouthernDry crew removed every piece of debris and leveled out the ground before installing the drains and pumps and encapsulation material. John and his crew returned a week later because they wanted to make a modification to the system that they believed would be more efficient. I would have never known the difference, but because they care about the quality of their work, they made the modifications to ensure the efficiency and longevity of the system. After a month, I finally made it back to the far corner under the house and noticed water pooling under the encapsulation in one area. One phone call and 24 hours later, the crew showed up, assessed the situation and implemented the necessary modifications, installing additional drainage at no additional cost to me. Using SouthernDry was the easiest and best decision we made!read more

I have had the total encapsulation for one week now, I am proud to say my relative humidity in my house now stays... around 38-40%, I have actually had to raise my thermostat due to it feeling so much cooler and comfortable in my house with the lower humidity levels. I called around and compared prices and Southern Dry was by far the least expensive and the personable and easy to work with. And my crawlspace is dry as a bone. If you have moisture problems or high humidity in your home I would definitely recommend giving John Kabel with Southern Dry a callread more
