What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?

When you have issues due to the moisture and draftiness of a crawl space, Epp can fix the problems from the source. This is done with crawl space encapsulation, a process that begins by removing any damaged material and fixing any issues resulting in standing water or high moisture.

The actual encapsulation involves wrapping the crawl space walls and floor with poly sheeting. No gaps are left, leaving you with a dry area that is practically impervious to insect and rodent infestation. The process takes a few days, at most, and we do the work with a minimal impact on your day-to-day life.

Who Needs Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Anyone who owns a home with a crawl space in Bennet or nearby areas would benefit from crawl space encapsulation. If you want a cleaner, healthier home that is easier to heat and cool, this process is one you should consider.

There are also some specific concerns that would show the need for crawl space encapsulation. They include the following:

Mold and Mildew:

No homeowner wants to deal with mold and mildew but, all too often, they find their way into our living space. Mold and mildew are likely a problem in a damp crawl space but, due to the higher humidity, it can also be a problem in the living space.

Air Quality:

Do you feel sluggish or suffer from frequent headaches? It could be due to low indoor air quality. The air between the living space and crawl space exchanges regularly, leading to this problem.

Unwanted Pests:

Do you constantly struggle with insects or do you have rodents living under your home? This is a common sign of a crawl space that needs attention.

Water Infiltration

Water can have a terrible impact on the home. If you see standing water or even if you have high humidity problems, it's time to call Epp for a crawl space evaluation.

High Energy Bills:

When you notice your energy bills creeping up, the crawl space may be to blame. A damp, drafty crawl space will have an impact on keeping the living area comfortable.

Low Energy Consumption and Fewer Costs

Foundation Repair

Protects Your Home’s Structural Integrity

Water in the crawl space is more than an inconvenience. It can undermine the foundation and lead to a whole host of problems. Epp can redirect the water away from the crawl space before moving ahead with the encapsulation project.

Saves Your Home from Pest Infestation

We use poly sheeting to seal the crawl space. In doing so, an environment is created that is not conducive to rodent or insect infestation.

Increased Storage Space

One often overlooked benefit of crawl space encapsulation is that you are creating additional storage space. You can store anything that will fit in the area because it is now dry and clean.
