Crawl Space Encapsulation
Sealing Crawl Space in Raleigh, NC
Also known as a "Closed Crawl Space" or "Conditioned Crawl Space" , there are those who say that some forces of nature just can’t be mitigated by the power of human actions. At Carolina Weatherization, we show how untrue this is by offering crawl space encapsulation for Raleigh, NC homes.
You Can Beat Mold Where It Begins
Crawl spaces in basements and attics are prone to some of the more unattractive effects of nature’s extremes: Moisture in the basement from the dark ground can seep up into wooden structures, creating a breeding ground for allergy-frustrating mold and mildew. Similarly, in the attic—or any other kind of crawl space—excessive heat and humidity can combine to create a haven for mold and scum. With crawl space encapsulation from Carolina Weatherization, this problem is effectively dealt with and damp crawl spaces become a thing of the past.
Special Insulation Does the Trick
Crawl space encapsulation means lining the inner surfaces with special insulating material. We perform crawl space encapsulation on flooring, and on the walls and ceilings of the crawl space. This keeps moisture from affecting your structure, and by extension, your living space.
Call us today to talk about how crawl space encapsulation could be an important part of preserving your home.
Radiant Barrier Redo
I had Carolina Weatherization redo a radiant barrier, that was installed by another company, which was falling apart. Matt Philliips responded to my inquiry very quickly and came out in a few days to see what had to be done. He was prompt with an estimate, and had his team come out sooner than expected, as he had a cancellation. The workers were very professional and got the work done in a timely fashion. Plus they did a great job. I have a little more insulation work to be done, and I know who I will be calling, Carolina Weatherization.
A job Well done and a pleasure to work with!
My crawl space has never looked so good, I take my shoes off when i go under the house now. They really did a nice job weatherizing my crawl space. sealing all of the access points running into and out of my foundation and into the upper floor of my house..( Plumbing,electric, fireplace, vents and all around the foundation where the upper structure meets. They installed a dehumidifier with a wireless monitor for inside the house. I can see the temperature and humidity of my craw space and make any adjustment that i want to, raise or lower the humidity. The unit turns its self on and off as needed when set on Auto. The work they did will definitely help reduce my energy requirements. I found them to be very competitively priced, and based on the work they did a good value.
Excellent work, very professional
Matt and his crew were great to work with. Came up with some creative ideas we had not thought of, were efficient and clean, and did a fantastic job.
We couldn't be more impressed by our experience with Matt, Jamie, James, and Richard. Professional, highly skilled, experienced, conscientious, respectful, helpful, pleasant are words that fit them. They take such pride in their high-quality work. They work so well together. When you hire this company, you are not just dealing with a representative or supervisor and then the workers are an unpredictable entity. They are a real team. It was a pleasure to have them working in our home. We hired them to seal and insulate our attic which had not been sufficiently sealed or insulated when the house was built in 1970. Their work means even more to me than energy efficiency as I have a lung disease that was not helped by breathing air leaking from the attic. That was taken very seriously by Matt when he first came out, and by the others when on the job. They worked diligently to seal all penetrations into our living space. Where another company representative said "we will seal what is accessible," Matt explained what they would do to make sure they could access all areas -- some of them very tight as we have a split level home. With this company, it isn't just "this is what we do and this is how much it will cost." Matt takes an interest in the customer's needs and patiently considers the whole picture, then offers what can be done to meet those needs. He comes out the first day of the job and is in contact with the crew throughout the job. The crew is well-informed about what is to be done and carefully follow up on everything agreed to. Matt then come back for a final walk through to make sure everything is satisfactory to the customer. We are completely satisfied. Our attic looks amazing and their work is already making a big difference in our indoor air quality as well as to the efficiency of our HVAC system. Their work is also competitively priced and we think reasonably priced for what was done and how it was done -- well worth the cost.
I was very impressed with the friendly staff, their promptness and quality of work. I had insulation blown through my entire attic, LED air-tight lights installed and all openings sealed to prevent airflow between living space and the attic. Two men worked in my house from 8am-5pm for two days and the manager came by several times to help/supervise. Excellent work, I'll always use them for any insulation needs!
Quality service, professional, and thorough follow up
Had the insulation in my attic completely redone by Carolina Weatherization as well as the insulation in my crawl space replaced and dehumidifier installed. Extremely pleased with the services provided by Carolina Weatherization. Matt, Ed, and their crew were punctual, thorough in every step of the process, and overall provided me with great customer satisfaction. His crew kept me informed on every step of the service and if there were any issues as they came up. They even alerted me to a plumbing leak underneath my house that if I had let go much longer, could have turned into something major. Can't give enough positive feedback on the experience I had with Carolina Weatherization!
Excellent Work, Service, and Follow Up
Matt and the entire team at Carolina Weatherization were a pleasure to do business with. We contracted with the team for an attic sealing and insulation project at our home. All facets of the project were handled professionally and efficiently: from quoting, scheduling, to completion of the work. Great crew. Great work. Great results.
Great company / Excellent work
From my first interaction with Matt and his company I was pleased with every aspect of the experience. Matt listened to what the issues were with our house and provided several options to remedy the air leaks and inadequate insulation in our crawlspace, attic and kitchen without trying to sell us a solution we didn't need. His employees were professional, hardworking and conscientious. I highly recommend Matt and Carolina Weatherization.
If I could give 10 stars I would. Matt and his crew were fantastic. I received 3 quotes to have my crawl space encapsulated and my attic insulated after my furnace ran for 4 days straight and my house was 55 degrees during a really bad cold snap. The other 2 quotes were a joke! Matt gave incredibly fair pricing and wasn't trying to "sell" me a bunch of stuff I didn't need. We had the duct work replaced, all the insulation, a sump pump installed as well as a dehumidifier and the vapor barrier. They also worked to close up my porch area due to a problem I have had with cats living under my house. This was a tough crawlspace to do (the house is 150 years old) and took 2 weeks, but the guys really looked out for me and made sure they did everything right. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to have their crawlspace encapsulated and their attic insulated. They are fantastic and definitely don't rip you off at all. Thanks again Matt!
Noticed an immediate improvement in air quality and temp control
The company was the first to correctly find and diagnose the issues in our older home, developed a plan and budget and professionally executed. As noted in the title...we are seeing a big difference from Day 1 of completion. The company is responsible and easy to work with. The crew that did the work are all company employees and have a stake in seeing the work done right. They have given us comfort in our home after other companies dropped the ball.
Incredible Service Quality and Customer Service
We used Carolina Weatherization for our crawl space, attic, sealing all vents and ducts, and to insulate the outside of our daughter's room which is over the garage. From start to finish, Matt and his crew were incredibly professional, polite, and did an amazing job. They kept me informed of their progress multiple times a day. The finished product was excellent. I can't believe how good the crawl space looks now, and more importantly we can feel a substantial change in how our home feels. I can't wait to start seeing lower energy bills! I can't recommend Carolina Weatherization enough!
When we were selling our home the inspector found that our crawl space had a serious moisture problem. I thought for sure this was going to prevent the sale of our house. I called Matt at Carolina Weatherization to come out and see if they could take care of this moisture problem. Not only did he assure me he could fix it by installing a vapor barrier and sealing up the crawl space Matt and his guys had the job done and the crawl space absolutely dry in a matter of days. DRY! This relieved a lot of my stress and was done well before we were closing on our house. I will definitely be calling Matt for any issues with my new house and highly recommend Carolina Weatherization to anyone in need of this type of work.
Excellent work performed by knowledgable installers. The finished product far exceeded my expectations. The yard, and house were left spotless. The installers were very well trained for the tasks required. 5 stars is minimum. Thank you
High quality service, professional service
Matt and his team at Carolina Weatherization were recommended to us by neighbors. From the first communication to the completed project for us, Matt was professional and helpful. He was very thorough in explaining what he felt was the optimal resolution to our insulation problem. His team was professional, polite and very helpful! I cannot speak highly enough about our experience with Matt and his team at Carolina Weatherization. We highly recommend their service!
Worked with my budget and gave great advice
Matt and his crew are all great guys. No pressure and honest hard working group. I needed quotes for several things and kept changing my order, it was all good. I inspect insulation on new homes so I know the hidden spots that are often over looked. These guys got them all ! My 1950S house is now very energy efficient. Highly recommend these guys for any project.
These guys are professionals!
These guys know their business well from the top down to a man. I interviewed with 5 different companies, asking what they would do to make my home more energy efficient and reduce my energy costs. I concluded after speaking with Matt Phillips that I didn't need a roof line radiant barrier (which I was initially interested in) but rather needed to primarily seal air leaks between my attic and 2nd floor, and elsewhere throughout the home. Carolina Weatherization confirmed that I had made a wise decision in selecting them. Before and after blower door tests resulted in a 30% reduction in air leakage. My HVAC units are working much less. The house is less dusty. I am using a Time of Use meter with Duke Energy, with the objective of consuming low cost kilowatts during off-peak hours and avoiding the consumption of energy during peak hours. I've programmed my Thermostats for the A/C to not run during peak hours from 10am to 9pm. That's 11 hours during the heat of the day. The house is holding it's temperature very nicely without running the A/C. On days with temperatures in the 90's, the temperature has only risen from 75 deg to 78/79 deg over the 11 hours without even running my A/C. I can't wait to see my next Duke Energy bill for August! Lastly, the Carolina Weatherization staff was highly courteous and professional. It has been a pleasure doing business with Carolina Weatherization.
Matt and his crew were great . The job was done in a timely manner. The guys were awesome and the job site was kept clean. They were always available to answer all my questions. I'm so glad they did my house. Thanks again.
Had a 91 year old house insulated in the attic and under the house.
Carolina Weatherization did a very thorough job! They were very professional and courteous, and were even flexible in their schedule, working around my HVAC installation. I am reccomending them to anyone who has insulation needs in the future.
Came in and put insulation under house and vapor barrier. Excellent job, easy to work with, cleaned everything up. Would HIGHLY recommend.
Quality! It was great.
I was so impressed with Matt and his crew, they arrived when they said they would, they completed the job when they said, and respected my property (treated it like it was their home). I actually had Matt do more work than I had originally planned because he was so thorough. I felt comfortable with this crew, they were tremendous! I would recommend this company, very accommodating and attentive to detail. If I have the need I will call on Matt again. I am extremely please!
Very pleased with service
I am very pleased with the work Carolina Weatherization did for me in January 2016. They sealed leaks and blew insulation into the attic. All of the workers were professional and courteous. They did what they said they would and Mr. Phillips checked the work. I could tell the difference immediately. My rebate application was submitted promptly. I am happy with the quality and integrity of this company.
Matt is very knowledgeable and professional. He did an excellent job for us. I highly recommend Carolina Weatherization.
Efficient, Quality Service at a Good Price
After years of increasing moisture and mold in our crawlspace we finally decided to do something about it. Matt advised on the most practical approach to remove the high humidity and take care of a backed-up crawlspace drain. They installed a robust dehumidifier and sump pump, improved the overall flooring, and sealed openings to the outside. Already the humidity in the crawl has dropped considerably, and there is no longer a musty smell in the home. It was a pleasure to work with such an efficient and knowledgeable team. I would highly recommend their work.
The attention to detail that Carolina weatherization has is great. What they have in there company surpasses other companies. I'm very happy!!!
Silled, professional, dependable, example of service excellence
This company replenished my faith that there are still high quality, dependable, trustworthy companies available. They are one. They contracted to provide my 65 year old home with good insulation from top to bottom including my HVAC ductwork. They also replaced a very old pull down stairway to the attic. They exceeded my expectations. They even provided before and after photographs of their work so I felt I had crawled under the house and into the attic with them! They arrived on time, did not leave until their goal for that day was accomplished and cleaned up before vacating my premises each day. Richard, the crew chief for my job was with the job throughout and was always professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend them.
Insulation of bonus room
I am extremely happy with the work that Matt and his crew did in insulating my bonus room. Matt carefully explained the how the materials they would be using would take care of the problem I was having and the end result looks great. They were on time, very courteous, and cleaned up everything before they left for the day. An excellent company to do business with and I highly recommend them.
Matt delivered on all promises
Matt was very involved and ensured that the project was "perfect" Perhaps not the cheapest in town but definitely delivered on promises and is an exceptional professional result!
Great affordable and dependable work
Affordable (had 3 other estimates), dependable (actually got to me early when someone else cancelled last minute) and did quality work (I crawled around and inspected work myself night before they finished...saw one minor issue, which they took care of themselves on last day without being asked). Would highly recommend to others. They weren't the lowest estimate I had...but it was apparent that they would do a good job and they delivered!!!
Carolina Weatherization did a great job on the attic in our new home. Matt and team removed particle boards that were in the attic, raised the floor to accommodate 14" of insulation to get us to R49 rating, and installed new tongue in groove OSB flooring. They also installed a new drop down ladder and cap for the drop down. In addition, they found a place under our stairs which was missed by every other company that had no insulation and fixed that too. While the price was not the lowest we were quoted, the scope of work was by far the most extensive. No other insulation company would remove the particle board, raise the board, or install a new floor. Other companies suggested hiring a contractor to do all of that work and then they would come back and do the installation part. If you want quality work and one stop shopping definitely consider Carolina Weatherization. I would highly recommend them.
Solved wet crawl space when others failed.
Matt and his team did an excellent job,. The crawl space was already sealed but still had water seeping from beneath the plastic. Matt re-engineer the design and also moved water away from the foundation. When it rains the crawl space stays dry. The price was also very reasonable. Matt had the job complete before other companies could even visit for a quote.
Had Carolina Weatherization come out to add insulation and seal our ducts in our attic. They were prompt, courteous, and efficient. Even better they helped us fill out our Duke Energy Rebate Paperwork and mailed it in to Duke within a week of our service! Matt and his team was great!
Our house is old and rambling with a crawl space varying from 4 ft to not much more than a foot in height. These folks managed to seal the whole crawl space that no other company would even consider. They blew insulation into places I wouldn't have thought possible in the attic without tearing things up. They even clean up after themselves quite well. House is much more comfortable and draft free since they finished. Important note that they stayed in the budget they estimated! They worked worked within our schedule which included a six week break while we traveled. We couldn't be more pleased.
I was very plesed with every phase of this project. From the first sells call to the last inspection it was handled in a very professional manner. The workers J & J were there on time every day rain or cold. I felt like they went above the call of their job to please me but I later found out this is how Carolina Weatherization works. If they found anything that needed fixing I was the first to know and if they couldn't fix it they would tell me up front. I would highly recomend CW to anyone looking for this type of work. They even swept and damp raged the entire under house liner. I am inviting my friends over to crawl under my house and party with me it is so nice.Thanks CW. & Matt Steve J
All associated with this company were very professional and competent. They addressed all of my questions and updated me at the end of each day. They always reported to work on time and cleaned up at the end of each day. Matt made sure all work was done in the appropriate manner and followed up with me throughout the process. Would highly recommend this company to others.
Matt and his team provided excellent services for attic sealing, insulation and radiant barrier installation. His quote was fair and competitive and the completed price was exactly as quoted. The team was neat and efficient. Matt recommended some additional services as the job progressed, which I appreciated.
Clean, Dry Crawlspace!
Carolina Weatherization did a wonderful job of turning my home's damp, moldy crawlspace into a clean, dry, and sealed part of my house. Matt's crews arrived when he said they would, worked efficiently, and courteously informed me of their progress and next steps. Matt responded to all my questions quickly, and provided in-depth information about the work and benefits of the whole process. He installed a wireless temperature and humidity monitor I can view in my home, and I've been watching the humidity steadily decrease from 69% after installation to 59% right now during these warm, rainy summer days. The humidity is lower inside my home as well! I just can't say enough good things about this company, about Matt, and about how much better I feel knowing my crawlspace is dry, clean and sealed!
Crew showed up on time and worked diligently and kept me in the loop as to what was going on. Crew was courtesy and professional at all times.
Professional and Courteous
I was pleased with the overall experience of working with Carolina Weatherization, from the preview of our home, accuracy of the quote, courtesy and respect of the installers, and quality of the work done.
Fine crew and thorough job
The crew at Carolina Weatherization was very professional and they paid attention to detail. Didn't ask for payment until the job was done. My house feels and sounds much better now.
