Crawl Space Solutions
In the Stevensville area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years crawl spaces were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were intented help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, these vents don't really work that way, having these open vents allows water to get in during heavy rain. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing mold growth. Up to half of the air in your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will be better for the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty line, sometimes accompanied by other waterproofing systems to keep water out of your crawl space. Encapsulation will stop bugs and animals from getting into your crawl space as well allowing you to use it for storage. Moisture in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
