If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you only visit when there is a problem. This is probably because they are usually improperly sealed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can even have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having humidity issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
