Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair in Columbus, GA

Other than maybe containing HVAC equipment, your crawl space is a damp, dark area that you most likely never visit. However, your crawl space does have the important job of supporting everything above it. Crawl spaces are commonly built without any waterproofing and, until recently, were constructed with vents that trap Columbus’s hot, humid air and allow it to travel throughout your home.  

Because the crawl space may be difficult to access, it’s best to have a skilled expert at AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists take a look. We will precisely identify the problems in your crawl space and their underlying causes before implementing long-term repair and encapsulation solutions that are ensured to keep your crawl space secure and safe.

Crawl Space Problem Signs in Columbus, GA

Depending on your crawl space, it could be dangerous for you to explore and diagnose problems.  The good news is there are plenty of problem signs noticeable in the living areas of your home.  If you notice sagging floors, musty odors, elevated humidity, increased bugs, and high energy bills scheduling a free inspection with AFS is your next step. They will do a full inspection inside the crawl space and be able to evaluate any crawl space flooding, wood rot, or condensation in the area. From there, they can provide a repair estimate.

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Columbus, GA

Although there are several common causes of crawl space damage, one of the most serious causes is the open vents. It was believed years ago that these vents helped circulate air to keep crawl spaces dry and healthy. However, we now know that the air quickly becomes trapped, and rather than flowing back out through the vents, it travels up into the home. In addition to being humid, this air also contains mold and pest droppings because these items are frequently found inside the crawl space. Columbus’ clay soil expands easily; given the area’s nearly 50 inches of rainfall annually, the ground is often saturated. This puts pressure on crawl space walls, causing them to crack, and allows rainwater to enter.

Crawl Space Repair Solutions in Columbus, GA

While there are plenty of do-it-yourself repairs online, crawl space encapsulation and repair is really something that should be left in the hands of professionals. Each crawl space requires a unique system to combat specific needs. For example, while some deal with groundwater problems and a full waterproofing system is necessary, others need to eliminate high humidity and condensation and require an energy-efficient dehumidifier.   

In general, all crawl spaces need to be sealed, meaning vents and loose doors are sealed to stop outside air and moisture from entering. Our encapsulation process and premium vapor barrier does just that. All our products are made in America and come with nationally backed, long-term warranties.
