Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Charlottesville
Several causes could be leading to your Charlottesville home’s crawl space problems. The most common culprit, however, is open crawl space vents. While it was originally thought that vents would help reduce humidity and moisture problems, they have been found to cause these issues. This is especially problematic during Charlottesville’s humid summers. Muggy, unconditioned air enters the crawl space through open vents and travels upward through your home because of the stack effect. This means that any dangers like moisture and mold can find their way into your main living space.
Vapor barriers are essential in sealing your crawl space and isolating it from the earth. There are many options when it comes to vapor barriers. Learn which ones will benefit your crawl space, and what to stay away from.
Sagging, uneven, bouncy floors are a problem you need to deal with before further damage or injury results. Over spanned, failing floor joists in your crawl space likely are to blame

The crawl space repair and encapsulation solutions your JES inspector might recommend include interior drainage, a sump pump, a dehumidifier, encapsulation with a vapor barrier, vent covers, and specialized crawl space supports to shore up floors and floor joists. While your Charlottesville crawl space might need one or all of these solutions, they work perfectly together to keep your crawl space dry and structurally sound.
