Culpepper, VA (June 29, 2017) – JES Foundation Repair fielded a team from its Manassas office to assist in a project with Habitat for Humanity of Culpepper County. The Culpepper County branch of the international nonprofit is rehabilitating a house at 7595 Griffinsburg Road, Boston, VA under the direction of construction coordinator Jerry Martire. JES Foundation Repair donated time and materials to install a crawl space encapsulation system beneath the home.

JES removed the old, inadequate crawl space vapor barrier, and installed a new crawl space encapsulation system that was be fastened to the walls, wrapping all CMU piers/columns, and sealing all vents. The system included a 20 mil vapor barrier, dehumidifier and all related ducts and returns to meet IRC Code 408.3.

“I contacted JES Foundation Repair to see if they could help with the crawl space encapsulation since they are the region’s foremost experts in crawl space moisture control.” Jerry Martire stated. “I was pleased that they offered to provide the materials as well as the team of experts to do the installation.”

The crawl space encapsulation system isolates the home from the earth. The humidity level in the air ultimately will be lowered, reducing moisture. The dehumidification/air purification system further reduces mold growth.

 

“The system we installed not only provides protection to the structure itself, but also improves the health of the living space.” Added Lance Ziolkowski, one of the volunteers from JES. “The next family that lives there will breathe easier with a new, healthier crawl space beneath them.”
