Crawl Space Supports
Foundation Specialist can provide you with strong crawl space supports for your Western Michigan area home. If you have a crawl space which was damaged by water or mold, we can install supports to help with holding up the weight of your home. Crawl space moisture can be a seriously damaging thing, and it can cause the wooden support beams and floor joists below your home to rot, warp, buckle, and decay.
We realize that this is not something that you want to deal with, and it can be incredibly frustrating to know that your crawl space is in such poor condition. However, your crawl space isn’t beyond repair, and we can install a support system to help with holding up the weight of your home, and even the first floor of your house so that it doesn’t sink anymore.
A lot of Michigan homeowners call us on a regular basis and want to know if they have a damaged crawl space and what are some warning signs that could indicate a problem. Crawl space water damage occurs whenever this area is not sealed off. An unsealed crawl space will let in excess moisture and humidity. This moisture causes damage to the wooden materials, as mentioned earlier, and this can be very inviting to termites, roaches, and other unwanted critters. Also, the humidity and water can lead to the growth of nasty and dangerous black mold.
If you notice any of the following warning signs of a damaged crawl space, you need to get in touch with us immediately for a consultation and help:
- Sagging first floor
- Home appears to be “sinking” into the earth on one or more sides
- Noticeable wall cracks form along window and door frames
- A musty smell is coming up from below your home
- Termite damage
Crawl Space Repair
We know that there are other crawl space repair companies in the Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo area that you could choose to do business with. However, we feel that our professionalism, attention to detail, and our knowledgeable and friendly employees is what sets us apart from the competition. When it comes to crawl space repair, we can take care of damaged wooden support beams and floor joists, and we will make sure that the problems never come about again.
To do this, we will need to perform crawl space encapsulation. CS encapsulation involves the installation of vapor barriers, sump pumps, floor liners, and dehumidifiers to help keep out abundant amounts of moisture and humidity. When you have a sealed crawl space, you will never again have to worry about moisture getting underneath your home and causing damage.
As a Michigan homeowner, we know that you are budget-conscious and you don’t want to spend a fortune to take care of this problem. However, we want you to know that we will do our best to provide you with the very best value. We can’t give you an estimate over the phone or online. You will need to call us to schedule a consultation. During your consultation, a crawl space repair tech will be sent to your home to evaluate the damage. He will then be able to give you a quote for the job, and he will even walk you through the repair and waterproofing process so that you won’t be left in the dark.
