What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Most crawl spaces are dark, damp, and drafty. When you choose crawl space encapsulation from Epp, it transforms your crawl space into a comfortable area of the home that can even be used as storage.

The process of crawl space encapsulation involves sealing the walls and floors with poly sheeting. We will also remove any damaged insulation and replace it with something more suitable. Any drainage issues will also be corrected.

Who Needs Crawl Space Encapsulation?

When you consider all of the benefits of having your crawl space sealed and redone, it really is something that would benefit most, if not all homeowners. The best way to know is to contact Epp for a free crawl space inspection.

There are also some specific reasons why crawl space encapsulation would be of benefit. We are including the top reasons below for your consideration.

Mold and Mildew:

A problem with mold and mildew is something no homeowner wants to manage. These issues commonly start in the crawl space. If you have mold in the home, encapsulating the crawl space would help.

Air Quality:

You don't have to have the air quality tested in your home to know it needs to be improved. You may feel sluggish or have frequent headaches. The air exchanges regularly from the crawl space to the living space, so if the crawl space has low-quality air, so does the home.

Unwanted Pests:

Pest infestation is common in many crawl spaces. If you have a problem with insects or rodents, it is a problem that can be addressed with crawl space encapsulation.

Water Infiltration:

If you have standing water in and around your foundation, then it is a problem that should be addressed. Epp can redirect the water safely away from your home prior to sealing the crawl space.

High Energy Bills:

Cold, damp, and drafty crawl spaces make it difficult to keep the living area of the home comfortable. High energy bills are one of the main complaints of those who come to Epp for crawl space encapsulation.

Better Air Quality

When the air quality in the home is healthier, you are healthier. After encapsulation, the dryer and cleaner air in the crawl space will filter into the home, improving the overall quality of the air in your living space.

Low Energy Consumption and Fewer Costs

Before you have the crawl space sealed, you likely saw your energy bill rising. After encapsulation, the dryer air and lack of drafts help to lower your energy bills when you are cooling or heating your home.

Basements are often a damp and dingy area of the home. Many people consider it to be wasted space, but when Epp comes in to waterproof the basement, it is transformed into a dry, livable area that expands the possibilities of your living space.
