This is my first post. While I am NACHI certified, I only do flooring, moisture and mold inspections (see www.flooringinspector.com). Recently I have been seeing more and more of what is called “encapsulated crawlspaces”. While the theory and method usually works, sometimes it doesn’t. And, in fact there are times when the liner is floating on water!
Presently I am looking @ a $75k encapsulated crawlspace that is a terrible. My question is; although we have standards to inspect both Closed and Open crawlspaces, we have none to inspect these Encapsulated ones. Can anyone offer any advice that I might be able to use to @ least compare, so that the Consumer can force the Contractor to come back and try to get this thing to work/dry the crawlspace?
