Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Monroe area as the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates throughout the year.

If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely an area that you will only go into when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally poorly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. They are known for having moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent problems in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you’ve got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
