If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are generally improperly closed off and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. 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 level the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.More Info
