Give your basement the protection it needs to stay dry and avoid mold and moisture issues with basement encapsulation and basement insulation services from Total Home Performance. How will this help your home? In many ways, such as:

  • Reduce the risk of harmful mold growth

  • Avoid moisture and high humidity issues

  • Create a healthier indoor environment

  • Make your home more comfortable

  • Lower your heating and cooling costs

Our Basement Encapsulation Process

Basements come in all shapes and sizes on the Eastern Shore and in Anne Arundel County, but no matter what home we’re in, we’re careful to take our time and follow a building science-approved process for insulating and encapsulating your basement.

 

1. Basement Inspection - Before we get started on fixing the problem, we need to know what the problems are and where they exist! We’ll remove your old insulation and address any pest issues or standing water problems before the real encapsulation work begins.

 

2. Basement Insulation and Air Sealing - Spray foam insulation is a powerful tool for protecting basements because not only is it a superior insulating material, but it also acts as a moisture and air barrier, so you can be sure you’re keeping outdoor temperatures, water, and air out of your home.

 

3. Basement Vapor Barrier Installation - Once we’ve insulated, we cover your basement walls with a heavy duty polyethylene barrier to further protect against moisture and air infiltration.

 

4. Basement Dehumidification - If necessary, we’ll even install a dehumidifier in your basement, so that you can feel confident that the very bottom of your home is staying at acceptable humidity levels and prohibiting mold growth.

Schedule a Home Energy Audit Today and Learn More About Your Basement

Not sure if upgrading your basement (or the rest of your house) will make a difference in your energy costs or home comfort? A home energy audit is a great place to start, and one that any trustworthy building science and home performance contractor will recommend as a first step. An audit helps answer questions like, “Why does it cost so much to heat my home?” or “Is my home making me sick?” with advanced technology like blower door tests and infrared thermal imaging.

 

Audits take the guesswork out of home improvement work, and with your audit results, you can feel confident that you’ve identified the problem and are ready to move forward with home improvement work.
