Birmingham, AL Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair

Living in Birmingham, AL, you are likely familiar with common crawl space issues. Although this foundation type is popular in Birmingham, AL, and surrounding areas, several serious problems are to be expected. Birmingham’s hot, muggy weather, which occurs nearly year-round, is mostly to blame. However, the area’s volatile expansive soil and heavy rainfall cannot be overlooked. 

Humidity is more than bothersome. It creates condensation, attracts damaging bugs, and weakens the structural wood responsible for supporting your home. The above-average rainfall in Birmingham, AL, leads to standing water in your crawl space; this needs to be addressed quickly.

Our team of professionals educates you on the problem and suggests solutions to permanently repair your crawl space damage. Now it’s even more accessible than ever.

Crawl Space Problem Signs in Birmingham

When it comes to crawl space issues in your Birmingham, AL, home, recognizing the problem signs early is key to avoiding serious structural damage. It isn’t necessary to visit beneath your home to spot problems. Especially since trips to the crawl space can be dangerous, it’s best to leave that job to the professionals. 

There are many problem signs noticeable in the living areas of your home. Keep an eye out for sagging floors, increased bugs and pests, as well as musty odors. These odors are often observed when entering the home in the early stages of damage and get increasingly worse with time. An increase in your home’s energy usage is also a sign of a crawl space problem. AFS has the extensive knowledge and expertise to repair the problem permanently and end these frustrating problem signs. 

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Birmingham

 The main reasons you’re likely experiencing problems are the area’s hot, humid climate, heavy rain, and expansive soil conditions. Birmingham, AL receives around 56 inches of rain annually, that’s well above the US average of 38 inches. While all these factors are out of your control, there are steps you can take to mitigate the problems they create. Open crawl space vents and the stack effect allow hot, humid air and rainwater into the crawl space. This causes mold and mildew and attracts pests. Sealing your crawl space properly eliminates this common cause and safeguards your Birmingham, AL, home for years to come.
