Woods Basement Systems, Inc. Case Studies: Crawlspace Encapsulation in Mattoon, IL

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016 by Jordan Link


Roy B. of Mattoon, Illinois, wanted to prepare his crawlspace for the winter months. Roy called Woods Basement Systems, where he spoke to Inside Sales Specialist Kim West about finding a solution to his concern. Roy needed a solution that would help control the air flow and moisture levels in his crawlspace. Systems Design Specialist Nolan Martz came out to Roy's home to review the information, and gather the dimensions of his crawlspace for any installation, as well as identify any additional concerns.


The best solution for Roy was to install a complete crawlspace encapsulation system, complete with the CleanSpace® vapor barrier, a drainage matting, and coverings for the crawlspace vents.

Foreman Josh Bailey and his team came out to perform the installations. The process began with the closing of the crawlspace vent-holes with vent covers, to restrict air flow. A drainage matting was laid over the dirt floor. The drainage matting has dimples in the bottom of it to encourage the air flow underneath the floor, so moisture can be properly drained away.

The CleanSpace® vapor barrier was added to the crawlspace, where the team formed the barrier around obstacles, fastening the barrier to the walls and obstacles, restricting air flow behind the barrier and ensuring the barrier would not fall off the walls and remain attached to every surface.
