Crawlspace Encapsulation and Moisture Barriers
Up to 50% of the air in the first floor of your home comes from the crawlspace. In southeastern cities like Nashville and other areas in middle Tennessee, homes built on crawlspaces have a tough time handling moisture. Without crawlspace encapsulation, dangerous gases such as Radon and polluted air are allowed into the home, leading to allergies, asthma and a host of other issues. FES Crawlspace Encapsulation, Humidity Barrier and Humidity Control will handle the following issues:

  • Poor air quality in your living space
  • Minor allergies to severe infections (breathing difficulties)
  • Uncomfortable humidity levels in summer and cold floors in winter
  • Higher heating and cooling costs (15% to 35% higher) and decreased life of HVAC/HEPA units and ducts
  • Structural Decay, including rotted sills, joists, floorboards, stuck doors/windows and buckled hardwood floors
  • Condensation on air conditioning equipment, duct work, insulation, water pipes and truss plates
  • Radon gas
  • Insect and rodent infestations

If your crawlspace hasn’t been encapsulated yet, take control of the air quality in your home and your family’s health! Contact Franklin Environmental Services today.

Free estimate with a follow up email detailing recommended service. Walked the house inside and out to give me ideas on potential air quality issues including the crawl. Happy with the work these guys did on remediation. They don’t oversell services like a lot of encapsulation companies.

STRONGLY RECOMMENDED! I am very thankful for Keith & his team at Franklin Environmental Services. Following their detailed cleaning & sealing of the crawl space in my home, I look forward to their bi-annual return to check things out when they arrive to maintain the crawl space dehumidifier.

We used FES to encapsulate our crawlspace and they were very accommodating, explained everything well, communicated promptly, and they willingly came back free of charge to correct something. Their pricing is also competitive, and they work quickly!

FES was truly awesome right from the very first meeting. Keith the owner came out himself. I had gotten probably five other estimates and still did not feel comfortable giving the job to anybody at this point due to the nature of this job being very big and costly. The reason I gave Franklin Environmental Services the job was not because they were the lowest estimate (nor were they the highest) but because of the fact that the owner himself came out not only the first time but two other times to discuss my concerns and questions at NO CHARGE! The next day he gave me a broken-down estimate as I had requested which was specifically detailed to my house not just a cookie cutter estimate like some of the other folks that came out. I must say I made the best decision! Keith and his crew were here probably 4 to 5 days, and not only did they clean all the mold so well that it looks like I have new floor joists but my entire crawlspace now looks like I could live down there! This company definitely pays attention to detail and even the small things which I think is also important on such a big job. They dug/made some sort of French drain on the outside of the wall where water was coming in my crawlspace. I definitely went in with a budget and Keith gave me several options to make it happen where it was doable for me. What company does that these days?! I will close with this; I am not an easy gal to please! I will be the first one to speak up if something is wrong, but I will also be the first one to praise anybody who I think did an outstanding job and they really did! Get it done right the first time and be done.

Keith and his crew did an outstanding job!! Keith was very professional and thorough and recommended only the necessary work to fix the problem but also gave me options to go a step above if desired. He recommended to get a second quote from a competitor and after I did, it only reinforced my feelings that he was the right choice. He gained my confidence on the first visit and didn’t disappoint. I will be using them again if I ever need additional services.

I purchased my current home about a year ago, the home is approximately ten years old. My crawl space had mold and a poorly installed vapor barrier. I got estimates from four contractors. Keith had the knowledge and experience to do the job correctly at a fair price. I would highly recommend him. I am satisfied with his work but if anything should change, I will update this review.

I had FES perform mold remediation and crawl space encapsulation. Keith and his team were extremely helpful, responsive and professional. I had some unusual circumstances in my crawlspace, since my 100-year-old house is on pier foundations, and part of my crawlspace was not accessible. Keith developed a plan for my specific issues. The work was done extremely thoroughly. I was very impressed with their attention to detail. I had some odor issues after the encapsulation, and Keith was very attentive in fixing the problem, which he did. In fact, I have never experienced such amazing customer service. I can’t recommend this company highly enough.

Keith’s men removed debris from the crawlspace, leveled the rock, and installed a new vapor barrier. They did an excellent job, and I am very happy with the work. The result actually exceeded my expectations. I would definitely use Franklin Environmental Services again and recommend them.

FES owner, Keith came out and carefully checked out the whole crawlspace providing pictures and answering any questions I had. He had extensive knowledge about crawlspace health and was very good at explaining all the options. Keith’s quote was just a little more than the other quote I had received but the FES mold remediation was much more thorough and also included installation of pipes for a passive radon system. He and his team spent around 4 days doing the job. They were all very professional and knew what they were doing. It was raining during the entire install, and they were very careful not to make a mess. The crawl space looks completely different now. Before it was a wreck and had started to have humidity issues. Now it’s clean and dry enough to store belongings down there.

Keith was very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional, and thoroughly answered all of my questions when he came out to quote the repair. He was also available very quickly and provided a detailed quote, which were critical since we were in the inspection period for purchasing a house. The sellers chose to go with another company for the repair based on price.

Keith and his team were very professional and completed quality work. The installation effort was delayed due to rain, which prevented some aspects of the job from occurring. The team was very flexible in accommodating our schedule to finish portions of the job that had not been able to be completed due to weather. Hard workers with great results!

I found Keith on Angie’s list and was impressed with his reviews. Previously I had a couple contractors review the project and it was not until I met Keith that I was comfortable in proceeding. I instantly felt that he was honest, knowledgeable, detailed orientated and wanted me to be 100% satisfied with the outcome of the project. These attributes were present through the entire project. I was 100% satisfied with the finished project. Our Radon levels are a fraction of the recommended federal levels and I have a crawlspace that is as clean as anyone’s living room and air that is noticeably fresh.

We received very good service at a fair price. Keith also tested for radon which we were a little skeptical of since it would mean more money for him if “high” levels were detected but the tests came back low enough that he said we didn’t need to worry about it. Communication was strong between us and work was done timely and professionally!

Radon levels were eliminated, and venting was carefully installed through a rooftop exit to ensure an attractive appearance. My moisture levels and air quality of the house are much better, and the basement is much cleaner and appealing to use for the storage space I needed. Franklin Environmental was very helpful in working with me to keep the price down while maintaining great quality. I cleaned out the basement to make it go more quickly for them, and Keith was careful to make a functional and attractive system. Thank you!
