Crawl Space Repair Services & Encapsulation
In the years after WW2, homes with crawl space type foundations became popular. This kind of foundation is easier and cheaper to build, while still providing access to wires, ducts and plumbing.
Crawl spaces used to be fitted with vents, a technique that we now know to be ineffective and even harmful. Vents allow external, humid air in during summer, which rises Relative Humidity levels up to the point in which mold occurs. During winter, the influx of cold air through the vents means higher heating bills for your household. Crawl space repair and encapsulation can fix these issues.
