Expert Crawl Space Repairs
Crawl spaces beneath homes are often overlooked by homeowners. When crawl spaces are being built, there is generally a small vent and door that “closes” it off from the outside. However, that is far from the case. Excess humidity, water and even animals can get inside and cause problems over time. Since these spaces are still left exposed to the elements, they are naturally susceptible to foundation damage.
At Rapid-Dri Foundation Systems, our team of experts strives to protect crawl spaces from getting to the point of no return. The two biggest issues that we face are excess moisture and humidity, as well as damaged floor joists. There are two systems and solutions that our professionals use to prevent severe damage.
Wet Crawl Space Services
A wet crawl space can cause plenty of issues for your foundation. If there are high levels of humidity in crawl spaces, there are is a high risk of dangerous mold and mildew growth in the area. This can potentially cause serious health problems for your family and create permanent damage to your home’s structure. Our team will place a system of liners to seal the area, a process known as encapsulation. This will prevent excess moisture and unwanted critters from entering your crawl space.
Sagging Floor Repairs
If your crawl space was never completely closed off to the elements, it has probably seen many years of seasons and humidity levels. As humidity levels are always fluctuating, the joists that hold up your floors expand and contract. This causes stress on the beams, allowing them to bow, which becomes noticeable by sagging floors. By using a system of crawl space jacks, we can raise the joists into the proper position and level the floors.
