Foundation, basement, and crawl space problems cause significant headaches for many homeowners. If ignored, these issues may turn into severe problems, requiring considerable work to repair. Remember, your house is your home, and every part of it deserves equal attention and care. Hiring a crawl space repair contractor is a great investment.
Symptoms of Crawl Space Problems
If you’re having problems with your crawl space, look for early warning signs. Focusing on crawl space repair can provide a healthier living space and save money on your utility bills. Some of the most common symptoms of a damaged crawl space are as follows:
- Cracked drywall
- Uneven floors
- Foul odors in the house
- Allergies or asthma symptoms
Why Should I Hire Crawl Space Repair Contractors?
Health and Safety
A wet crawl space can have adverse effects. Increased moisture in the crawl space can cause mold and mildew growth beneath the home. When neglected, crawl spaces can develop problems ranging from an unpleasant odor to more severe issues such as structural concerns.
Prevent Future Damage
Mold and rot may spread quickly in a damp crawl space. Structure damage can lead to sagging supports over time. Crawl space and foundation damage may cause uneven floors, jammed doors, and cracks in drywall. Our crawl space repair contractors at AFS Foundation and Waterproofing Specialist will address your issues to alleviate future damage.
Peace of Mind
Think about how much air circulates through your crawl space and into your home. Controlling the crawl space environment gives you peace of mind knowing that you have cleaner air in your home.
Crawl space encapsulation helps prevent your crawl spaces from mold and mildew and can decrease your energy bills. Typically, homeowners who repair their crawlspace have lower energy bills due to higher energy efficiency within their homes.
Increase Home Resale Value
When thinking of your home’s long-term investment, energy efficiency, and presentation are vital factors. Sadly, a wet crawl space may turn away potential home buyers. Even if they are interested, they may request that you address the problem before closing or significantly lower your asking price. An investment in crawl space repair pays off by creating a dry, safe, and healthy space for you and your family.
