Basement & crawlspace repair services

We recommend Crawlspace Encapsulation. A sealed crawlspace is a more effective alternative to the traditional wall-vented crawlspace. Other benefits of crawlspace encapsulation include energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality, increased home value and appeal, and humidity control.

If your home was constructed on a crawlspace, chances are you have foundation vents in the walls of your homes foundation. Despite what you may have heard, instead of allowing hot, humid air to leave the crawlspace, the vents allow the humid exterior air to have access to your home.

This leads to excess moisture beneath your home which leads, in turn, to an environment suitable for mold growth in the crawlspace. Crawlspace vents should always be closed in order to prevent 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 prevent humidity, leading to a healthier and more energy efficient home.

Warning signs which might indicate a problem with a damp crawl space:

  • Musty scents coming from below your home
  • Recent vision, skin or respiratory problems
  • Insects seen entering the basement or crawlspace
  • Uneven floors in the first floor of a house
  • Water standing around the footing of the home

To further assist with excessive humidity in the area beneath your home, we can also outfit your crawlspace with an automatic dehumidifier system to remove excess humidity from the air. Dehumidifiers are a simple and reliable solution. By removing excess moisture, mold and fungus will not be able to grow in the area beneath your house. A water-free crawlspace is a safe crawlspace.
