Crawl Space Repair

Installed Crawl Space Encapsulation System

The crawl space below a home is generally not a part of the house that warrants much attention. As a result of this, it can sometimes be a source of problems that affect the entire house. There was a time when the crawl space was kept ventilated to allow fresh air to circulate freely below the home. We now know this can be a problem due to critters making homes in the area, high humidity having an inability to leave the area, and even water being able to enter and sit.

Installed Crawl Space Encapsulation System

At CLS Foundation Repair & Waterproofing we know the best thing to do for Omaha crawl space repair is to properly seal it off from the elements and critters to create a healthy environment under your home. In order to completely seal your crawl space, it is necessary to have a proper evaluation completed to gauge the situation so our team can design an optimal system for your specific problem.

Crawl Space Problems

There are only a few problems that can affect a crawl space and it is important to know what type of issue you are dealing with.

Sagging Floors

Your home is supported by wooden frames and beams. If your crawl space is unsealed, moisture and time can cause the supports to weaken and start to degrade which will cause your floors to sink or become soft in some areas.

High Humidity

Having excess humidity in your crawl space can cause musty odors and could eventually lead to the growth of mold and mildew. These can harm your family and should be remedied as soon as possible to minimize the possible damage.

Unwanted Pests

Any unwanted critters in your home can be a problem whether they are bugs, mice, or snakes. These pests can destroy your plumbing and hvac fixtures below the house and keeping them away is a must.


Crawl Space Encapsulation Progress

Our team can quickly evaluate your crawl space and help you come up with a plan to install a system to restore your home and prevent future damage that may occur. We use a variety of products including stabilizers, dehumidifiers, and encapsulation systems for Omaha crawl space repair and protection for your home.

Encapsulation System

Our Omaha crawl space encapsulation repair is the process of completely closing off your crawl space from the outside elements. This is done with a heavy duty sheeting, vent covers, and a secure door. Once the area is cleaned and sealed, we can ensure the levels of humidity are in control to prevent the growth of mold. This will be completed using a dehumidifier designed for crawl spaces to quickly and permanently prevent excess humidity from building up.

Stabilizing Jacks

If your floors are sinking, the best repair is to replace the old, wooden columns with a system of steel crawl space stabilizers and jacks to restore your floor to a proper level and prevent any future sinking of your floors.
