If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely an area that you will only worry about when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally improperly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can have critters living in them. They are known for having excess humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
