Crawl Space Solutions

Sagging Floors in Diggs

In Diggs, there are many homes that are built with crawl space areas instead of basements. As long as there have been crawl spaces, these were created with vents which was intended to increase air flow into the area and keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is rarely what happens. Having open vents allows water to get in when it rains or snows and the vents hinder airflow which causes the humidity levels to stay high which will eventually harbor the growth of mildew. Up to ½ of the air in your home has come up through the crawl space so ensuring this area is protected from the weather and keeping the humidity levels low can increase the overall air quality in your home.

Our team has been helping customers with their crawl spaces as long as we have been in business and we know the best way to seal them off and control high humidity. This is done using a method known as encapsulation which is the installation of a series of vapor barriers, sometimes accompanied by insulation products, which are strong plastic and vinyl sheeting as well as vent covers and a heavy duty door that can close off the area completely and stop any unwanted moisture from entering. Closing the area will also stop critters and animals from getting in the crawl space which will keep any items there safe and allow you to use it for storage. After the crawl space is protected, if you need it we can install a series of floor jacks to repair sagging floors above the crawl space.

Structural Foundation Repair

Stair Step Crack Repair in Diggs

The foundation of your home is easily one of the most important areas of the home. It not only holds the home itself but it also is the basement walls. When you've got foundation problems, usually, they will present themselves in the form of stair-step cracks in the outside brickwork, horizontal cracks that run along the foundation or across the basement walls. Sometimes, you will see that the windows and doors will not open or close easily or there may be cracks at the corners of them. While these issues may not seem critical when you notice them, they are all indicators of a sinking or settling foundation which should be looked at by a professional for particular problems and determine what type of a repair needs to be installed.

It is good that the most common foundation problems have very similar causes and our experts are very good at tracking down these problems. We can implement a repair solution that is for your specific problem to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sinking foundation, we can 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 can stabilize your foundation.
