Crawl Space Problem Signs – The Causes:
Water vapor, or humidity, is the biggest source of crawl space problems. As the water evaporates it rises, going through your crawl space insulation, floor joists, subflooring and the rest of your home, creating a path of destruction. If the source of the crawl space humidity is left unchecked, your home will start to have more problems like mold on your baseboards, squeaky floors and high electric bills.
Your crawl space doesn’t need to have puddles to have a water problem. Crawl space humidity is caused by:
Moisture from the ground:
A hot, dry summer or period of drought can create problems for your home’s foundation. When soil dries, it contracts, pulling away from your foundation. The shrinking soil creates a gap next to your foundation which allows it to shift and settle.
Moisture from the air:
Poor Pier Column Spacing:
When your home was built, pier columns were installed in the crawl space to support the weight of the floors above the columns. If the columns weren’t spaced properly then the floor joists, or beams, will begin to sag. Your home will have sagging floors or uneven floors where the floor joist is over spanned.
Crawl Space Problem Signs – Are These DIY?
Whether you’re suffering from crawl space humidity or structural problems, it’s best to call in the experts. A cheap crawl space vapor barrier or home made jacks just aren’t going to cut it. Your crawl space problems will return and can get worse.
Your crawl space problems can also be caused by house settling and other structural issues, which is why it’s extremely important to have an annual crawl space inspection.
Last March I had JES place pilings under a portion of the foundation of my home that was showing a very noticeable crack and replace a jack under the kitchen area where the previous homeowner had rigged a floor jack to hold up a sag in the floor joists. Everyone was professional as could be. They all showed up on time and stayed until the work was complete. If you remember last March it was very muddy and rainy and the guys took the time to clean everything up like they were never there. They had to make a couple of trips out to wait for things to dry out to complete the job. I would recommend these guys for any structural/foundation work that you would need.
