Our priorities for home repairs is to provide the absolute best accommodations for correcting structural and water-based damages. Crawl spaces and crawl space repairs are no different - where lack of a basement underneath your home makes this space a very important part of the long-term sustainability. In New Jersey, homes are more susceptible to water and soil problems by being so close to the ocean. We have a natural moisture aspect in the atmosphere that poses problems for soil, while the humidity and vapor in the air creates mold problems. That's why our team treats crawl space repair services as equally important as foundations, from sagging floor repair to eliminating the presence of mold within a crawl space area.
To address crawl space problems at the source creates a more permanent solution in crawl space repairs. Our team specializes in treating crawl spaces like a basement or foundation - assessing the interior and exterior issues, analyzing the damages, and recommending the best course of action in crawl space repairs. Proper protection of your crawl space and crawl space repair ensures a longer life-span of your home by providing sagging floor repair while warding off structural deterioration, water damages, and mold growth that is harmful to your family.
Mold is like a plague on homes. Once grown, it spreads and eats away at wood, drywall, and concrete in the process. We remove the mold and provide counter-measures.
Sagging floors come from wood rot or deterioration (from mold). Installing replacement floor supports will sustain your home and provide sagging floor repair, while removing mold will prolong it. Repairing sagging flooring is necessary to preserving the soundness of your crawl space. When you fix sagging flooring, you put a stop to the deterioration of your crawl space area.
Excessive amounts of water is particularly harmful to your crawl space. Installing a waterproofing system and vapor barriers help alleviate water and moisture problems as we perform crawl space repair. A vapor barrier does not control the movement of air, but only the movement of moisture in that air. This eliminates the wetness from your crawl space, but not the healthy dry airflow you want.
An unhealthy crawl space left untreated invites unwanted guests like critters, bugs, rodents, and mold. We use our crawl space encapsulation system to create a barrier of protection in crawl space repair jobs. Untreated, critters can make their way into your crawl space and use this entryway to begin an infestation all throughout your home.
With crawl spaces being a very harsh environment, it can be difficult to properly protect. That's why we use durable vapor barriers and crawl space encapsulations that can withstand earth, water, and humidity levels at any range of extremity. Along with that, we use sump pumps that can work in any environment, and floor supports that act like foundation piers for your home. With these repairs in place, you can enjoy a happy, healthy, and sound crawl space once again.
After many years of experience, we have learned to trust SafeBasements™ products. The crawl space encapsulation is highly durable, while the floor supports and sump pumps are indefinite to their role when repairing crawl spaces. Crawl space encapsulations may even add monetary value to your home before placing your home for sale. With a vapor barrier, you’re only controlling the movement of moisture in the air, but not the air itself. Allowing you to enjoy healthy air movement, but not the moisture that can promote mold growth. Using the highest quality products ensures that each job we carry out in the region is also high quality and made to last.
