If you’ve got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you will only go to when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally improperly closed off and are frequently messy, dirty, and can even have critters living in them. They are notorious for having excess moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control issues in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as 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 them and level the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
