If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you will only worry about when there is a problem. This is probably because they are usually poorly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the weather. 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 level the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
