Crawl Space Solutions

Crawl Space Jacks in Dendron

In the greater Virginia Beach area, there are many homes that are built with crawl spaces instead of basements. For a long time, these were built with vents which was intended to increase fresh air flow through the space and keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is rarely what happens. Having open vents allows water to get in when it rains or snows and then it never leaves which results in the humidity level staying too high which can foster the growth of mildew. Up to ½ of the air in your home enters through the crawl space so ensuring this area is protected from the elements and controlling excess humidity can improve the overall air quality in your home.

JB Design has been helping customers with their crawl spaces since we opened our doors and we know the proper way to seal them off and control high humidity. This is done using a process called encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty liner, occasionally installed with insulation products, and are thick plastic and vinyl sheets as well as covers to close off existing vents and a heavy duty door that can seal the area totally and prevent any unwanted moisture from entering. Closing the area will also prevent rodents and animals from moving in your crawl space which will keep any items there safe and allow you to use it for storage. After your crawl space is protected, if necessary we can install a system of sagging floor jacks to stabilize sinking floors above the crawl space.

Structural Foundation Repair

Stair Step Crack Repair in Dendron

Your homes foundation is quite possibly one of, if not the, most important parts. It not only holds the building itself but it also forms the basement walls. If you've got foundation problems, they will generally present themselves in the form of diagonal cracks in your outside brickwork, cracks that run along the foundation or across basement walls. Sometimes, you will see that your windows will not open or close easily or even cracks at the corners of them. While these issues may not seem serious at first, each of them are indicative of a sinking or settling foundation which should be looked at by a professional for specific problems to determine what type of a repair needs to be performed.

It is good that many foundation problems are caused by similar things and our experts are very good at spotting those problems. We can utilize a repair product that is for your specific issue to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation or walls. If you've got a sloping foundation, we can implement a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. The location and amount of sinking will determine if we use helical or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation.
