Enter the name for this tabbed section: ENCAPSULATION
Encapsulation with Quality MaterialsThe encapsulation process begins with the key ingredient: The vapor barrier. This barrier is a physical covering and the first defense against keeping moisture, mold spores,
and foul air out of the living areas of your home. Don't be fooled – some contractors use simple, thin plastic liners as vapor barriers that offer no UV (ultraviolet) protection and very little durability. They're also porous and fail to provide complete protection against continued damp air infiltration into your home – and your lungs!
By contrast, Real Dry uses barriers by Flexi-Seal to protect your home and family. These are the highest-quality vapor barriers available, and we cover the entire crawl space floor as well as the foundation walls with them so that your home is truly shielded from the effects of a moisture-filled crawl space. Flexi-Seal is a fiber-reinforced flexible membrane used to create a continuous, permanent barrier from external moisture and the earth gases in crawl spaces and basements. It can transform a dirty, damp crawl space into a clean, dry storage space. Flexi-Seal is strong and durable enough to be walked on, and it exceeds all ASTM E-1745 requirements for a vapor and moisture barrier – which is why we at Real Dry feel comfortable recommending it for your home.

Crawl Space DehumidificationA quality vapor barrier is essential for moisture mitigation, but depending on several other factors such as . . .
- The type of soil on which your home is built
- The type of crawl space floor in your house and its condition
- Whether or not water penetrates your crawl space
Energy Savings & Cost EfficiencyAt Real Dry we install the number one residential dehumidifier on the market today – the Santa Fe line of dehumidifiers.
Controlling the humidity levels in your home is key in protecting your home, health and family. After many years of installing them, we've found Santa Fe dehumidifiers to be an affordable solution to our customers' humidity problems.
A Santa Fe dehumidifier comes with a five year limited warranty. We install them because they can save you up to $250 or more per year in energy costs over conventional dehumidifiers, and that doesn't take into account the savings that you'll realize as a result of raising your thermostat and reducing your air conditioning costs. Once you're able to maintain a consistent relative humidity of 50% or less, you won't need to keep your thermostat set at low, uncomfortable temperatures in an effort to control humidity.
A Santa Fe free-standing, energy-efficient dehumidifier will not only pay you back in energy savings, it'll also create a more comfortable living space – leaving you and your family satisfied.
And at Real Dry that's been one of our primary goals throughout our entire history . . . to leave you and your family satisfied!

Crawl Space Flooding & LeaksIf your crawl space floods or leaks – even intermittently – then you may be a candidate for the installation of a drainage system. Water is the enemy of a healthy crawl space, and in addition to a vapor barrier, Real Dry can easily install a sump pump system in your home to eliminate any trace of water infiltration. A battery backup system can even keep your crawl space dry and clean in the event of a power failure.
