Crawl Space Repair
In the Claiborne area, there are many homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were intented help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these crawl space vents allows water to get in during rain and snow storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing the growth of mold. If you have a crawl space, up to half of the air in your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will increase the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control high humidity. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing line, sometimes accompanied by other waterproofing systems to keep water out of your crawl space. Encapsulation will stop bugs and animals from getting into your crawl space as well allowing you to use it for storage. Moisture in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
