Malcolm, NE is a village with a lot to offer. It is located about 10 miles from Lincoln, so residents enjoy small-town living with access to plenty to do. In addition, Malcolm is central to a number of wineries that are well worth visiting.
Although Malcolm is only home to a few hundred people, the issues you might experience with your home are the same as anywhere. This includes high moisture and mold in the crawl space.
You can protect your home from those dangers and more with a crawl space encapsulation. Epp Foundation Repair had been helping residents in the area for almost 30 years, and we can get you started on a healthier, more comfortable home with a free inspection and quote.
What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?
After our free inspection, the ball is in your court. If you choose to move forward with a Crawl space encapsulation, we will get to work. This would include the removal of any damaged insulation or material and then we seal the area with a vapor barrier. If needed, we offer solutions for water removal and control, including a sump pit.
Who Needs Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Crawl space encapsulation would benefit any home but especially those that already have signs of problems. Common signs that a crawl space needs encapsulation are listed below:
Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation
After Epp encapsulated your crawl space, you will experience the benefits. Here are some of the top benefits of having the job done.
Better Moisture Control
When you control the moisture in the crawl space, you control it in the entire home. This leads to a more comfortable living environment.
Improved Air Quality
We all want to breathe easily, and our health is important to us. You get both benefits when Epp encapsulates your crawl space. You can rest comfortably, knowing that the air quality in the home is improved as a result.
High Energy Efficiency
One of the top reasons people come to Epp about their crawl space is because their energy bills are out of control. When Epp encapsulates your crawl space, a noticeable drop in energy costs often goes along with it.
An unprotected crawl space is an ideal environment for insects and rodents. Since we use polyurethane plastic sheets to encapsulate the crawl space, it provides an impenetrable barrier that rodents can't chew through. This protects your entire home from pests entering through the lower level.
Increased Structural Integrity
Epp also offers foundation repair services and we can use those skills if necessary. When you encapsulate the crawl space, however, you keep water from undermining the foundation. It is a proactive approach to avoiding foundation problems and maintaining the structural integrity of the foundation.
More Storage and Living Space
Do you always seem to have more stuff than space? Crawl space encapsulation solves that problem. You will love having more space that is clean and dry so you can store anything safely for a long time.
Epp Foundation Repair – List of Services
Our other services are:
Crawl space encapsulation is only one of the many beneficial services we offer. We also offer services that correct existing foundation and concrete problems, including lifting, stabilizing, and replacing the foundation when needed.
Foundation repair becomes necessary after the damage has already taken place. We can use underpinning, which uses push or helical piers that are driven into the earth so your foundation is supported on bedrock. We also offer other solutions that help your home to stand for a very long time.
Most homeowners avoid spending time in the basement because of the high moisture levels. With the basement waterproofing services offered by Epp, you can eliminate the humidity problem and add extra living space to your home.
If your concrete slab, driveway, or sidewalk has sunk, it can be fixed with our concrete leveling service. We inject polyurethane foam through dime-sized holes in the concrete and when the foam expands, it lifts the concrete with it. Afterward, we fill the small holes so they blend in with the rest of the concrete.
