If you have a a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only go into when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are normally improperly sealed and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having humidity 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 this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
