Another sign could be your doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even sticking when moving them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Dexter area as a result of the moisture content of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. They are sometimes caused by poor compaction when your home was being built. Our team can install a system of piers under your house that will shift the weight of your home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
If you have a a crawl space, it is likely an area that you only worry about when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally improperly closed off and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you’ve got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
