Crawl Space Solutions

Crawl Space Jacks in Accomac

In Accomac, many of the homes were built with crawl spaces and not basements. For a long time, these were built with vents to the outside where were intended to help fresh air flow through the space and keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is rarely what happens. The vents allow water to get in during rain and snow storms and the vents hinder airflow which results in the humidity level staying too high which will eventually foster the growth of mildew. Studies have shown that up to ½ of the air in your home enters through the crawl space so ensuring this area is closed off from the weather and controlling excess humidity can increase the overall air quality in your home.

JB Design has been working with crawl spaces since 1995 and we know the proper way to seal them off and control excess humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a series of vapor barriers, sometimes accompanied by insulation products, and are thick plastic and vinyl sheeting as well as covers to close off existing vents and a heavy duty door that can seal the area completely and prevent any unwanted moisture from entering. This will also prevent rodents and animals from moving in your crawl space which will help keep any appliances there safe and allow you to use it for storage. After the crawl space is encapsulated, if you need it we can install a series of sagging floor jacks to lift sloping floors above the crawl space.

Structural Foundation Repair

Stair Step Crack Repair in Accomac

The homes foundation is quite possibly one of the most important parts. It not only supports the structure itself but it also is the basement walls. If you have any foundation problems, they will generally present themselves in the form of diagonal cracks in the brickwork, cracks that run the length of the foundation or across the basement walls. Sometimes, you will see that the doors or windows will get stuck or even cracks at the corners of them. While these issues may not seem serious at first, each of them are indicators of a sinking or settling foundation which should be looked at by a professional for problems to determine if a repair needs to be installed.

It is good that many foundation problems have very similar causes and our experts are very good at noticing these problems. We can utilize a repair solution intended for your exact issue to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation or walls. If you've got a sloping foundation, we can install a series of foundation piers to level the foundation. We will install either push piers or helical piers, depending on where and how bad the sinking is. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation.
