If you’ve got a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you only go to when there is a problem. This is probably because they are generally poorly closed off and are frequently messy, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
