Spencer Crawl Space Encapsulation
Most homeowners with a vented dirt crawl space will eventually have problems arise. However, many of them won’t recognize issues until their crawl space is downright unacceptable. Because dirt floor crawl spaces are hard to keep clean, hard to keep pests out of, and easily infiltrated by water, problems can arise quickly, and those problems can lead to additional issues throughout your home. Our team of crawl space encapsulation and repair contractors in Spencer utilizes vapor barriers, sealing solutions, joists, and a variety of other measures to protect your home from any future costly breakdowns. We’ll transform your crawl space into a clean, dry storage space you can actually use!
Signs of Crawl Space Problems
As we mentioned, crawl space issues are difficult to detect because most homeowners don’t spend much time inspecting this unused area. However, you may notice other signs throughout your home—as well as in the crawl space—that could indicate there’s an issue that needs to be addressed by a professional team. If you notice any of the following symptoms, contact our crawl space encapsulation team in Spencer as soon as possible for a free inspection.
- Pooling water in the crawl space or near the foundation
- Mold and mildew growth
- Rotten support beams and boards
- Musty odors in the home
- Sagging, sloping, or bouncy main floors
- Condensation on crawl space walls, pipes, or insulation
- High indoor humidity
- Pest invasion or pest damage
- High utility bills
We use one of the top-rated crawl space encapsulation systems available on the market to permanently seal and protect your crawl space against water damage, pests, mold growth, and other damage. We’ll line the entire space with a specialty vapor barrier to protect all surfaces from water intrusion. Once the vapor barrier is in place and secure, we’ll also seal any existing vents and create a singular, lockable door you can use to access the space for storage.
Should we notice any mold, mildew, rotten beams, or sagging supports that require our attention, we’ll let you know about it during our inspection. Typically, we’re able to install a sister joist next to the affected beam to help provide much-needed support, but other times these boards may need to be replaced if the damage is too severe.
