Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Chattanooga, TN

While a crawl space elevates your Chattanooga, TN, home off the ground and can house ducting and HVAC units, these areas are not without their problems. Most crawl spaces were not built with complete waterproofing and encapsulation in mind, and they often have open vents that can allow water, humid air, and pests to wreak havoc on your home. 

Keeping an eye on crawl space problems is essential, but we don’t recommend that you go into this delicate and dangerous area of your Chattanooga home. The experienced professionals at AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists are equipped to handle these tricky spaces. We will accurately diagnose your crawl space issues and the causes behind them, and then install permanent repair and encapsulation solutions guaranteed to keep your crawl space healthy and safe.

Crawl Space Problem Signs in Chattanooga

While you should not venture into your crawl space to check for issues, there are several problem signs indicating crawl space damage that you will notice throughout your Chattanooga home. These include musty odors, elevated humidity, increased pest activity, higher than normal electric bills, mold, and sagging floors. Once you schedule a free inspection, your AFS specialist will check for those issues as well as water and flooding, condensation, faulty vapor barriers, wet insulation, and wood rot inside your crawl space. 

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Chattanooga

A variety of causes can be behind crawl space damage, but most of them stem from your Chattanooga home’s flawed construction. Building code has traditionally called for homes with crawl spaces to have open vents to allow for better airflow and moisture control beneath the house. However, open vents are welcome signs for pests and Chattanooga’s humid air and frequent precipitation. Chattanooga typically receives 51 inches of rain throughout the year, which can easily inundate a vented dirt crawl space. The stack effect is just as harmful, as it brings mold, pest waste, and other dangers up throughout the rest of the house to circulate in the air. Structural supports can sink into the unstable silt loam soil under your house, and over spanned floor joists will not be able to support your home if its load was not calculated correctly. 

Crawl Space Repair Solutions in Chattanooga

Big box stores offer products that are only temporary fixes, and any DIY installations also are ill-advised. Professional crawl space repair and encapsulation solutions customized to your Chattanooga home’s crawl space and its unique needs are the best ways to nip pesky and dangerous crawl space problems in the bud. At AFS, we offer a variety of solutions including interior drainage, sump pumps, vapor barriers, insulation, dehumidifiers, crawl space supports, and airtight vent covers and doors. All these American-made products are also equipped with dependable, long-term, nationally backed, transferrable warranties.
