If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you will only visit when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally poorly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, grimy, and can have critters living in them. They are notorious for having excess moisture problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.More Info
