Common Crawl Space Issues
Many people do not regularly check their crawl spaces, and understandably so. Most crawl spaces are dark and dirty, but our team can handle this unpleasant task for you. We know what to look for and will explain the cause of and solution for any problem we find.
Some of the most common issues our Nashville crawl space repair experts see include:
- Water and moisture damage. Excessive humidity in your crawl space can do serious damage over time just like leaks or floods. Moisture can wreak havoc on your wooden beams and other structural components, resulting in rotting, splitting, and weakening. It can also lead to dangerous mold and mildew growth.
- Inadequate support. Sometimes, a home’s floors and general structure are not being properly supported because of overspanning girders and beams. This is a construction error that can result in sagging floors and the general settling of your home.
- Pest infestations. Pests like insects and rodents love a dark, humid, dirty place to live, and it can be surprisingly easy to get into a home’s crawl space if it has not been properly sealed. Some insects can bore away at your wood, triggering structural damage over time, while other pests can carry diseases and cause other sanitation issues.
- Foundation settling. Signs of foundation settlement are often visible in a crawl space, so we always look for shifts in concrete walls, soil changes, and other indications of movement. We offer a variety of repair solutions if we discover your home or business’s foundation is settling.
Crawl Space Repair Methods
No two crawl spaces are alike, and your problem calls for a custom solution. When we inspect your crawl space, we will walk you through why we are proposing the solution we are proposing.
Our team at USS is prepared to implement a tailored solution for your crawl space, which may include:
- Encapsulation. Crawl space encapsulation is the process of sealing off your home's crawl space from the outside environment. This involves installing a vapor barrier on the walls and floors of the crawl space to prevent moisture and humidity from entering. Encapsulation also helps insulate the crawl space, which can lead to energy savings. By encapsulating your crawl space, you can protect your home from issues such as mold growth, pest infestations, and structural damage caused by water damage. It can also improve indoor air quality by reducing allergens and other harmful pollutants that may enter through a damp or musty crawl space. Overall, crawl space encapsulation is an effective way to protect your home and create a healthier living environment for you and your family.
- Waterproofing. Crawl space waterproofing involves installing a drainage system around the perimeter of the area and sealing off any cracks or gaps in the foundation walls to prevent water from seeping in. Waterproofing can also involve installing a sump pump to remove any standing water that may accumulate in the crawl space. By waterproofing your crawl space, you can protect your home from issues such as mold growth, wood rot, and structural damage caused by excess moisture. Adequate waterproofing will also limit the introduction of allergens and pollutants, improving your home or business’s indoor air quality.
- Dehumidifiers. Using a dehumidifier in a crawl space is an effective way to control the humidity levels and prevent moisture buildup, when paired with encapsulation. By reducing the humidity levels with a dehumidifier, you can inhibit the growth of mold and mildew, which can cause health issues such as allergies and respiratory problems. Additionally, controlling the moisture levels in your crawl space can also improve energy efficiency by reducing the workload on your HVAC system. Dehumidifiers are available in different sizes and types for various crawl space sizes and conditions. We can help you choose a model that suits your needs and ensures optimal performance.
- Structural Support Enhancement. Your home needs a strong and stable crawl space to properly hold its weight. Our team can install structural support jack posts, additional beams or joists, and other trusted products to restore proper integrity.
How Much Does Crawl Space Repair Cost?
Promptly addressing crawl space problems is an important part of caring for your home’s safety, stability, property value, and energy efficiency. Ignoring these issues can lead to more severe complications that cost far more to resolve. In other words, the sooner you get in touch with a professional, the better. With that said, we understand that crawl space repairs are often an unanticipated expense, and you may not necessarily have the financial resources to fully cover the work that needs to be done. Fortunately, we offer flexible payment arrangements for our Nashville crawl space repair services, and you will not be expected to pay until the job is done right.
Our technicians also operate at the highest levels of integrity and will never attempt to sell you something you do not need. If we do not think your crawl space needs repairs, we will tell you so. If we do think a repair is necessary, we will give you the information you need to understand why the solution is what the solution is.
