The one thing that holds many people back from going for a fix is the worry that it’s simply not worth the money. Many homeowners loath spending more money on a home than they have to. The thing is, you absolutely can’t afford to ignore sinking crawl spaces and floor joists.
If you’re dealing with these sinking problems, there are many reasons to fix it now. Here are just a few.
The Cheapest Answer
It’s simple: there’s never going to be a cheaper time to fix your crawl space than right now. If you wait to fix things, the price is just going to mount as more problems arise in your crawl space. That’s the opposite of what you’re trying to do.
At the end of the day, it’s by far cheapest to just fix it right now. No one wants to spend money on a home fix, but think of it this way: would you rather put the money down now, or put extra money down during an emergency in the future?
If you want to make sure you’re getting the best price, it’s important to get your information from a reputable contractor. Request your free inspection today from JES. You’ll get information on what you do and don’t need to do for your problems.
Avoid Future Crawl Space Problems
The problems aren’t going to stop, and just ignoring them won’t help. No matter what the problem is right now, ignoring your crawl space issues will just exacerbate them. That opens the door to future problems that may be worse than the ones you have right now.
For example, the IntelliJack system can help you raise your home back to its original position. What if you don’t address your crawl space problems and allow floors to continue to sag? After many months or years, the floor joists may end up bearing so much weight on weak points that they actually snap.
The last thing you want is to end up with a much more serious problem that you could have fixed with some simple preventive measures. A JES expert can let you know how to stave off those future problems before they occur.
Uncover Any Additional Problems
Do you know what’s really going on down in your crawl space? You may not. However, there can be all sorts of problems going on in your crawl space, from excess moisture to wood rot and many other potential options.
An inspection is actually the best way to uncover these problems. Professionals have tools that allow them to determine whether something is a problem and expert training that allows them to see where there might be issues.
Instead of just allowing your home to continue without knowing anything about it, request a free inspection from JES. You’ll quickly learn more about your home.
