Raccoon ripped crawlspace apart.

Our vented crawlspace here in Portland OR needs new insulation. The old floor joist attached insulation got ripped up by a raccoon. Current recommendations have now all crawlspaces totally enclosed and conditioned is that right? Can I get get some advice/resources on how to do that?

Some still to use vented crawlspaces but the trend is to encapsulate and condition the crawlspace. Personally I'd be inclined to put back or replace the insulation and seal up where the 'coon got in! If there is any moisture in your crawlspace you will benefit from laying plastic on the ground.
