Freedom from Your Crawlspace Worries.

the stack effect

We’ll help rid you of your crawlspace worries by accomplishing three things:

  1. Preventing moisture from getting into the crawlspace
  2. Preventing crawlspace moisture from seeping into your home
  3. Keep the air inside your crawlspace conditioned

Crawlspace issues are driven by the Stack Effect.

The “stack effect” (also known as convection), occurs when warm air in the upper level of your home or attic rises and is expelled through windows, vents, cracks, and gaps. This causes the cool, damp air from the lower levels of your home – including the crawlspace – to replace that air.

The Story crawlspace encapsulation and conditioning process can help reduce moisture, mold, musty smells, cold floors, damp insulation, and much more!

How It Works

Encapsulation

We place a vapor barrier over the crawlspace floor and foundation to keep the outside air and damp air out. This physical shield keeps moisture, mold spores, and musty odors from escaping into other parts of your home, keeping your family healthy and comfortable.
