Sabetha, Kansas may be a relatively small city with a population of about 2,500, but they have something most cities don’t have. Because of a few large employers and several smaller employers, there are more jobs than people.
There are also many residents who own a home, and those people need to be concerned about the possibility of moisture, rodents, mold, and high energy bills, all due to an unprotected crawl space.
Fortunately, there is a solution, and Epp Foundation Repair can help you find it. They offer crawl space encapsulation, which resolves those problems and more.
What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?
The process of crawl space encapsulation can provide you with a clean, dry crawl space. Epp will start the process by cleaning up any material that needs removed and making sure that water is redirected away from the space if needed. We then install a poly sheeting vapor barrier on the walls and floors. In the end, it can improve air quality and energy efficiency throughout the home.
Who Needs Crawl Space Encapsulation?
If your home has a crawl space that is not adequately sealed or insulated, you are a good candidate for having the area encapsulated. You may also find it beneficial when you experience one of the following signs of a problem.
Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation
Do you still need some convincing that crawl space encapsulation is best for you? Check out this list of benefits.
Better Moisture Control
When you control the moisture in the crawl space, you control it in the entire home.
Improved Air Quality
There is often a noticeable improvement in the air quality immediately after a crawl space encapsulation.
Lower energy bills are a top reason why people contact Epp for crawl space encapsulation. It is also a benefit that is seen quickly.
Say goodbye to pests. Once we clean things up and install poly sheeting, the pests will be a thing of the past.
Increased Structural Integrity
It is important to have a strong foundation under your home. Water and poor soil conditions could cause the foundation to sink, but that is less likely to happen with crawl space encapsulation.
More Storage and Living Space
One huge benefit of encapsulating the crawl space is the additional room you'll get. You can store boxes and other items out of sight. Having a clean and dry crawl space adds storage space right away.
