Crawl Space Solutions

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Battery Park

In Battery Park, there are many homes that are built with crawl spaces and not basements. For many years, these were constructed with vents which was intended to increase air flow through the space and keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is usually what happens. Having open vents allows water to enter the space during rain and snow storms and then it never leaves which causes the humidity levels to stay high which can facilitate the growth of mildew. Up to half of the air in your home has come up through the crawl space so ensuring this area is protected from the weather and controlling excess humidity can improve the overall air quality in your home.

JB Design has been working on crawl spaces since we opened our doors and we know the most efficient way to seal them off and control high humidity. This is done using a method known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty liner, occasionally installed with insulation products, which are sturdy plastic and vinyl sheets as well as vent covers and a heavy duty door that can seal the area totally and stop any unwanted moisture from entering. Encapsulation will also stop rodents and animals from moving in your crawl space which will keep any items there safe and allow you to use it for storage. Once the crawl space is encapsulated, if you need it we can install a system of floor jacks to repair sloping floors in your home.

Structural Foundation Repair

Foundation Settlement Repair Battery Park

Your foundation is easily one of the most important parts. It not only holds the building itself but it also forms the basement walls. If you've got foundation problems, usually, they will manifest themselves as stair-step cracks in the brickwork, horizontal cracks that run along the foundation or along the basement walls. Sometimes, you will see that the doors or windows will stick when you open or close them or there may be cracks at the corners of them. While these issues may not seem critical when you notice them, each of them are indicative of a sinking or settling foundation and it is important to have an expert evaluate the foundation for problems to determine if a repair needs to be installed.

Thankfully, many foundation problems are caused by similar things and our experts are very good at tracking down those issues. We can offer a repair solution intended for your particular issue to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If you've got a settling foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stabilize the foundation. The location and amount of sinking will determine if we use helical or push piers. Both are very strong and can help stabilize your foundation.
