There are a few different ways that JES foundation repair experts can help you with your drywall cracking problem.

Underpinning 

Underpinning or piering is a method that allows a contractor to place strong struts or foundation piers underneath your foundation, holding it up against settling. In some circumstances, this can actually push it back up to where it was before it started settling.

This is especially useful if you don’t have serious settling problems that are causing your foundation to crack. If you do, it may be necessary to fix those problems before underpinning the foundation.

A JES foundation repair expert will be able to let you know if underpinning could fix your drywall cracking problems and your other foundation repair options. Get in contact today to learn more.

Crawl Space Encapsulation 

If you have a dirt crawl space, the moisture rising from the crawl space may actually be impacting your drywall. That humidity can change a lot in your home, including the way the drywall settles alongside the rest of your home.

Regardless of whether you’re having these drywall cracking problems, it’s extremely important that you encapsulate your crawl space. You need to make sure the moisture doesn’t cause problems like mold and mildew.

Anyone who does have a dirt crawl space should pursue crawl space encapsulation regardless of any potential problems they might be experiencing right now. JES can help you with your crawl space encapsulation needs.
