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.
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.

I am so beyond thankful and appreciative for all the work that was done on my home. I can honestly say in the 3 years that I have owned my home it has never been this warm and comfortable. All the guys were so so nice and professional. They made sure that I was kept informed of all that was going on with my home. Their was some issues in the crawlspace that I wasn't aware of and wouldn't have even know about it if they hadn't of been so diligent on checking things out and solving the issues. I honestly can't say enough about this company. From the 1st point of contact to the last day everyone was so professional and courteous. They were always on time as scheduled. Thank you all for everything you did for me and my family.

I got multiple quotes from local contractors and it was clear that Carolina Weatherization had the most knowledge of what would work best in my particular home (a 1940s home with multiple knee-wall spaces). Fortunately, their work matched their know-how and we are very pleased with the results. Our neighbor also decided to use Carolina Weatherization to insulate their home!

I wish I could leave 10 stars! This company was so professional, courteous, on time, well priced, and experts at what they do. They totally re-did our crawl space and got rid of decades old insulation and organic matter. They were on time and did exactly what they said they were going to do without me having to babysit them. Unfortunately, this is not the norm when having someone work on your house and I was very pleased with how professional they were. I feel safe having my children live here now and would hire them a hundred times again!

I had a great experience with Matt and his crew at Carolina Wx! I was impressed with their customer care and work quality from start to finish, which means a lot considering I used to do this type of work myself as a contractor. Matt made certain my concerns were taken care of the whole time, and the crew made quick work of cleaning out my dirty crawlspace and turning it into a clean, conditioned crawlspace. They also air-sealed the foundation walls, sealed leaky heating ducts, and repaired sagging floor insulation. I would highly recommend Matt and his company Carolina Wx for crawlspace remediation and weatherization repair work!

Carolina Weatherization was referred to me by Duke Energy to help improve insulation in my house. My goal was to improve energy efficiency and save a little money on my energy bill. Matt recommended what seemed to be reasonable upgrades and I felt the price was fair for the work involved. It took a day and half and 2 different crews came. 1 for the attic work and 1 for the crawl space work. Both crews did excellent work and were very polite and friendly. I am very please with the job the performed. After almost a full billing cycle my Duke Energy report shows I am now below the average of power consumption for houses built around the same time and same square foot. My Honeywell report shows that September 2018 and 2019 were about the same average temperature wise and my AC ran 20 hours less after the work was performed. I feel like I meet my goal with the work that was done. Happy Customer here.
- Vic Lynn. 9/11/2019
Great team of workers who came in and got the job done to standard. I monitor our electric usage because of our solar system. Within 24 hours we had a 10%% drop in usage that can only be attributed to the insulation. It makes a difference! Would use Carolina Weatherization again.
- Rod Rowley. 7/29/2019
We have been more than impressed by the work done by Carolina Weatherization. Very professional and timely. The men who completed the work were very thorough and completely cleaned up after the project weas finished. We would highly recommend.
- Janelle Wimbish. 7/22/2019
I would definitely recommend Carolina Weatherization. Matt was great at explaining everything to get our attic in better shape. The crew that worked on everything were very nice and did a great job! It's only been one day since completion and our upstairs ac unit hasn't been running nearly as much. Definitely happy customers!
- Lindsey Bellefeuil. 7/13/2019
I hired Carolina Weatherization to insulate my home so that it was more energy efficient. They completed some work under my house and my house now retains cool air and remains cool. The lead worker on the job, Brandon, was very helpful in explaining everything. I would recommend this company.
- Brittany Jones. 7/12/2019
I have had the pleasure of doing business with Carolina Weatherization for years now. Matt runs a very reputable company with highly skilled installers and many qualifications. I highly recommend this company.
- J Hughes. 2/29/2019
Great workmanship and communication. Recommended.
- John Niffenegger. 11/18/2018
Outstanding work! On time, considerate, very pleasant. I loved working with Richard, Heath and the rest of the crew. Matt was awesome providing us with estimate and customer service.
- Rebecca Greenberg. 7/21/2018
Carolina Weatherization far exceeded my expectations. The team was on time and very professional. Their knowledge on air flow and insulating properties is above par. From the time they began working until the last blown insulated area, no short cuts whatsoever. Cleaned up like they were never there when the job was done. Matt you and your team are A+++++++. Thank you so much. On the first day the temperature was 85 degrees outside and my house was 72 inside, without even turning on the air condition. Will definitely recommend this contractor to friends and neighbor.
- Aaron Jones. 4/1/2018
Carolina Weatherization provided great service and communication to us from the first contact to the final wrap up. We upgraded our two story house from R-32 to R-49 and have been completely satisfied with their work. All associates were very professional, and they cleaned up at the end of each day. I am happy to recommend Carolina Weatherization.
- Ray Clinebelle. 2/22/2018
Went far beyond our expectations with reinsulating our Attic and sealing the pull down door. Made our 1973 attic insulated better than a new build. We are so pleased with it I should go up there more often just to look at it!!! Lol.
- Chad Lewis. 2/20/2018
These guys are great! Matt helped us increase the insulation in our attic, add roof baffles, and fabricated an insulated hatch cover for our attic stair. They showed up on time, stayed late to get the work done, and thoroughly cleaned before they left. They took care of all of the communication to Duke energy, for us to receive a rebate. I highly recommend
- Henry Newell. 2/16/2018
Matt Phillips has been awesome to work with! He provided us with a very fast quote on weatherproofing our crawl space, and also installed a bathroom vent fan for us. He managed to squeeze us in right before the holidays with a week’s notice, and we now have a great bathroom vent. I would definitely recommend Carolina Weatherization for any weather/water proofing needs.
- Audrey Stewart. 11/26/2017
We had Carolina Weatherization encapsulate our crawl space with a dehumidifier. They added more insulation to our attic and extended vents to our sunroom. We were very pleased with their work. Matt and the entire crew were professional, courteous and cleaned up after every phase of the work. We recommend this company!
- Gary Channell. 11/20/2017
I contacted Matt Phillips about our damp, musty crawl space and we decided together that Encapsulation was the permanent fix for us. The workers were very friendly and professional. High quality work was performed and we are extremely pleased with the outcome. We can already tell a big difference in the humidity level under our home. I highly recommend Matt and Carolina Weatherization for all your future insulation needs.
- Beth Marcom. 9/3/2017
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.
- L. Clarke Limbert. 7/26/2017
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!
- Kirsten Kohagen. 5/15/2017
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.
- Al Lauritano. 2/1/2017
My husband & I are from Fayetteville , professionals getting the job done, @ the end of their day they have you feeling secure in your own home 🏡 👫 #TeamEthics is #Awesome 👍 & speaks volumes 👌 Thankyou kindly Mr.& Mrs.William McKoy ☺😊
- Janice McKoy. 1/11/2017
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!
- Liz Snyder. 8/21/2016
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.
- Jackie Stewart. 8/1/2016
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.
- Nathan Bell. 7/12/2016
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.
