If you’ve got a crawl space, it is likely a location that you will only go to when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having humidity issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you’ve got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
