If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a location that you will only go into when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally improperly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
