Basement & crawlspace repair services
Our trained professionals can provide your home with Crawlspace Encapsulation. A sealed crawlspace is a more comprehensive alternative to the traditional wall-vented crawlspace. Other benefits of crawlspace encapsulation include helps to prevent freezing pipes, controls foul odors, helps to keep hardwood floors from cupping and buckling, controls conditions for mold growth, and helps to keep floors warmer in the winter.
If your Druid Hills home is built on a crawlspace, chances are you have open foundation vents in the walls of your homes foundation.
Despite what you may have heard, instead of allowing hot, humid air to exit the crawlspace, they instead allow the warm exterior air into to your basement. This leads to excess moisture beneath your home which leads, in turn, to mold, fungus, and foul odors in the crawlspace. Crawlspace vents should always be sealed to keep out unwanted humid air. Dirt crawlspaces require a proper vapor barrier installed on the floor and exterior walls. This is called Crawlspace Encapsulation. An encapsulated crawlspace will properly control humidity, leading to a healthier and more energy efficient home.
Warning signs which might indicate a problem with a damp crawl space:
- Uneven floors in the first floor of a house
- Musty and moldy odors emanating from the basement
- Unexplained health problems
- Insects and pests are colonizing the crawlspace
- Water standing around the footing of the home
