If you have a a crawl space, it is probably an area that you only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control 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 controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
