The entire house can begin to suffer when the crawl space begins to sag and sink. If your crawlspace is left to continue without the appropriate supports, the issue will only become more widespread and more severe. Thankfully, our team of trained staff is ready to help solve your problem.
Along with sagging, signs of a failing structure in the crawlspace can include warped floors above the crawlspace, pest infestations, doors jamming and sticking, and cracks in the drywall. Although the causes can vary, the most common reasons for a sagging crawlspace surround having too few supports or that the soil that the supports rest on is not strong enough. Sagging issues can be caused through rot or mold resulting from moisture causing a weakening of structure, as can the presence of termites or other pests.
Correcting the structural issues of a crawlspace is a solvable issue, and while each home has a unique set of circumstances, the solutions fall into a few simple categories. Firstly, we eliminate any moisture, pest or other contributing factor to the compromised structure. Secondly, we replace any damaged or inadequate materials that are no longer structurally sound. Then thirdly, we replace and add new supports that are built to last longer and be more stable than previous materials.
