If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you will only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are generally poorly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess humidity issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control problems in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary 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 the floor joists and level the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
