Sealed Vent Covers for Encapsulated Foundations
Encapsulated Foundation Vent Covers
In keeping with our company name; Beaux-Arts (French – Beautiful Arts) Classic Products, we take great pride in creating “Functional Works of Art” to replace industrial elements. We are the only company which offers excellent performance and a handsome alternative for Foundation Vent Covers and the only resource for encapsulated foundation crawl space vent covers.
Crawl Space Encapsulation Process
Our encapsulated crawl space Foundation Vent covers are very popular with clients that have encapsulated foundations. Over the last 10 years builders and architects are recommending a new approach for crawl spaces. The trend is to encapsulate the foundation with heavy plastic sheeting. This method prevents the moisture from ever getting into the crawlspace to begin with. Encapsulation also includes a drainage system that takes water away from the foundation. Also, a powerful dehumidifier is installed which controls the humidity; especially during hot summers and rainy seasons. The old foundation ports or vent holes are also sealed and covered on the inside with heavy plastic sheeting. If it sounds great, it is.
Many homeowners are finding out that their old crawl space vents are just covered with plywood or a cheep plastic cover, which ruins the look of their homes from the outside. In some cases, they are left to figure out on their own what to do about the old vent holes.
Crawl Space Encapsulation Necessity
The encapsulation industry has no good solutions. If, for instance, the foundation has a brick front; the home owner has to hire a brick mason to fill in the old port holes. Often the brick is hard to match with the rest of the foundation, and looks like a patch job. After spending $25,000 and up for encapsulating their foundations, home owners are left with several big eye sores on three sides of their crawl space. How to make the foundation look good was something they never thought about. The foundation vent hole is a big problem after encapsulation.
