Crawl Space Solutions

Sagging Floors in Eastville

In our area, many of the homes were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. As long as there have been crawl spaces, they were created with open vents which was intended to increase fresh air flow into the area and keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is rarely what happens. The vents allow water to enter the space during rain and snow storms and the vents hinder airflow which causes the humidity levels to stay high which will eventually facilitate the growth of mildew. We have found that up to 50% of the air in your home can come up through the crawl space so ensuring the crawl space is protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will improve the overall air quality in your home.

JB Design has been working on crawl spaces as long as we have been in business and we know the proper way to close them off and control high humidity. This is done using a process called encapsulation which is the installation of a thick liner or vapor barrier, occasionally installed with insulation products, and are heavy duty plastic and vinyl sheeting as well as covers to close off existing vents and a heavy duty door that will close off the area totally and prevent any unwanted moisture from entering. Encapsulation will also prevent rodents and animals from getting in your crawl space which will keep any equipment there safe and allow you to use it for storage. Once your crawl space is closed off, if you need it we will install a series of sagging floor jacks to stabilize sagging floors above the crawl space.

Your homes foundation is quite possibly one of the most important parts. It not only holds the home itself but it also is the basement walls. If you have any foundation problems, normally they will present themselves as stair stepping cracks in your brickwork, long cracks that run the length of the foundation or across the basement walls. You may also notice that your doors or windows will get stuck or even cracks at the corners of them.
