Before Crawl Space Encapsulation | High Humidity | Birmingham Alabama


Crawl Space Encapsulation for a customer in Birmingham, AL 35005.

Customer Name:

Tonja B.

Crawl Space Problem:

nasty crawl space with pestsA homeowner, in Birmingham Alabama, called SouthernDry because of high humidity in her crawlspace. She was concerned about escalating costs of heating and cooling her home. She was also concerned about the long term effects that humidity and moisture can have on a crawl space (ie. damage to joists and subfloors, mold etc.)

She was getting other quotes from crawl space companies near her and liked the SouthernDry website (who doesn’t love that duck?).

More importantly – having been burned by a large franchise in the past; this customer was passionate about doing business with a local, family company with roots in Alabama.

Crawl Space Solution:

dehumidifier with vapor barrier for alabama crawl space homesAfter a thorough inspection by a SouthernDry project planner, it was determined that the best solution for the customer was total crawl space encapsulation using the WhiteCap System.

First our installers removed the existing damp fiberglass insulation and debris from the crawl space. Next we installed 20 mil WhiteCap reinforced poly vapor barrier on the walls and floor to seal the crawl space from the outside elements.

Our final steps were installing a professional sealed crawl space door and a high capacity dehumidifier to clean the air and manage humidity.

The crawl space was completely transformed into a healthy new area that can be used for storage and improves the health of the entire home. SouthernDry communicated with the customer throughout the entire process to make sure every detail was understood and the project was completed to satisfaction.
