Crawl Space Solutions

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Birdsnest

In Birdsnest, there are many homes that are built with crawl space areas instead of basements. As long as there have been crawl spaces, they were constructed with open vents which was intended to increase air flow through the area and keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is rarely what happens. The vents allow water to get in when it rains or snows and the vents hinder airflow which results in the humidity level staying too high which will eventually harbor the growth of mildew. Up to half of the air in your home can come up through the crawl space so ensuring this area is closed off from the elements and keeping the humidity levels low will improve the overall air quality in your home.

Our team has been encapsulating crawl spaces as long as we have been in business and we know the most efficient way to seal them off and control the humidity. This is done using a method called encapsulation which is the installation of a thick liner or vapor barrier, sometimes accompanied by insulation products, and are heavy duty plastic and vinyl sheets as well as vent covers and a heavy duty door that will seal the area completely and stop any excess moisture from entering. This will also stop rodents and animals from getting in your crawl space which will help keep any items there safe and allow you to use it for storage. Once the crawl space is closed off, if you need it we will install a series of floor jacks to repair sagging floors in your home.

Structural Foundation Repair

Foundation Settlement Repair Birdsnest

Your homes foundation is easily one of the most important areas of the home. It not only holds the structure itself but it also forms the basement walls. If there are foundation problems, usually, they will present themselves as stair-step cracks in the outside brickwork, horizontal cracks that run along the foundation or across the basement walls. You may also notice that the doors will get stuck or there may be cracks at the corners of them. You may not think these issues seem problematic at first, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation which should be looked at by a professional for specific problems and determine if a repair needs to be performed.

It is good that the most common foundation problems have very similar causes and our experts are very good at tracking down these issues. We can implement a repair product designed for your exact problem to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation or walls. If there is a settling foundation, we will implement a series of foundation piers to correct the problem. We will install either push piers or helical piers, depending on where and how bad the sinking is. Both types are very strong and are able to stabilize your foundation.
