Settling foundations are fairly common in the Petersburg area as the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates during the year. These issues are occasionally caused by improper soil compaction when your home was being built. Our professionals can install a system of piers under your house that will shift the weight of the home to the piers and keep the house from sinking or settling in the future.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you only visit when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are usually improperly closed off and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having moisture issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
