Over time, the beams and wooden frame supports beneath a home can become damaged due to moisture intrusion. This can eventually cause floors to sag or bow in the middle, creating a noticeable issue with the floors above the crawl space. If the problem is left untreated for too long, it could ultimately jeopardize the structural integrity of the entire home.
Warning Signs of a Problem
- Sinking, un-level floors
- Musty odor (mold growth)
- Noticeable water build-up next to crawl space footing
- Sinking or settling of the footing in the earth
Encapsulation and Crawl Space Stabilizers/Jacks
At Kennedy and Sons Structural Solutions, we make use of the SafeBasements™ Healthy Living Encapsulation System which will be able to seal this space off from the outside environment so that moisture and excessive humidity can't get inside and cause problems. Additionally, we can install our own floor stabilizers to support the damaged flooring and push it back up to its original state.
