The VaporLoc Elite® System offered exclusively by Foundation Systems of Michigan

At Foundation Systems of Michigan, we offer a state-of-the-art crawl space sealing solution to transform your damp, nasty crawl space into a dry, healthy, usable space.

Building professionals say that up to 50% of the air you breathe on the first floor of your home is air that came directly from your crawl space. Therefore, whatever is in your crawl space air is in your house and you are breathing it.

Encapsulate your crawl space with our all-in-one solution

VaporLoc Elite® moisture barrier is installed across the crawl space floor. This durable liner will transform your crawl space into usable storage space while reducing excess moisture and musty smells. Our encapsulation system is an all-encompassing solution, which includes crawl space insulation on your walls for added comfort and energy efficiency.

The VaporLoc Elite® Advantage

  • Greatly reduces musty smells, with an EVOH layer that seals out odors.
  • Creates a clean, dry, sanitary, usable storage area.
  • Insulates crawlspace and reduces energy costs.
  • Reduces allergens such as mold and dust mites throughout the home.
  • Greatly improves indoor air quality throughout the entire home.
  • Eliminates excessive, destructive moisture, which could lead to wood rot.
  • Seals out soil gasses.
  • Reduces the No. 1 source for entry of radon gas into the home.

Insulation for superior moisture and comfort solutions

If you're experiencing cold floors above your crawl space or high energy bills, failing insulation or lack of proper insulation could be to blame. Insulating and encapsulating your crawl space can help solve moisture and comfort problems.

Meeting or exceeding fire codes is an important factor in selecting an insulation. Our EnerLoc® Wall System consists of rigid board insulation with a glass-fiber reinforced foam core of a high insulation value and is flame resistant.

 

Benefits of our EnerLoc® Wall System:

  • High Insulation Value - R10 rating
  • Helps increase energy efficiency for a more comfortable living environment
  • Can be exposed to interior with no need for a thermal barrier (meets ICC Fire Code)
  • Reduces potential for moisture condensation in wall

Problems related to moisture in your crawl space include:

  • Higher humidity in your living spaces.
  • Health issues related to mold and mildew spores throughout your home.
  • Damp and musty odors in your home.
  • Higher heating and cooling costs.
  • Rodent and insect infestations.
  • Increased allergic reactions.
  • Condensation on foundation walls and air conditioning duct work.
  • Warped hardwood floors.
  • Cold tile and flooring above the crawl space.

Why choose us to encapsulate and seal your crawl space?

Air in your home flows from the bottom to the top. Based on the principle that warm air rises, as the air in your home is heated, it moves up through your house. Once the air makes it way up to the roof, it will normally be vented out through the soffits or ridge vent.

So where does all this air come from? Surprisingly the majority is not from windows and doors but instead from your crawl space! In older, more "leaky homes", air can fully pass through your house at a rate of two changes per hour.

With a Foundation Systems of Michigan encapsulation system, you will not only stop crawl space leaks, and control moisture but also gain back a little peace of mind.

Problems with an Open, Unsealed Crawl Space

Traditionally crawl spaces had vents that were supposed to relieve excess moisture from the air keeping the crawl space dry. Experts now know that this does not work, but instead allows much more variation in humidity which can create much more moisture in your home. Learn more about venting in our resource center showing how important it is to close the vents and completely seal your crawl space.
