The crawl space under your Charlottesville, VA, home could be teeming with humid air, bugs and other pests, water, flooding, and other problems, and you just don’t know it.

Crawl Space Problem Signs in Charlottesville

There are many problem signs that indicate your Charlottesville crawl space needs to be repaired. Internal signs your JES inspector might notice include wet insulation, standing water or flooding, condensation, and mold. But there are other issues throughout your home that signal crawl space damage. Keep an eye out for increased pest activity, mold growth, high electric bills, high humidity, and sagging floors. Before any of these issues worsen, reach out to JES for a free crawl space inspection and repair estimate.

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.

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation Solutions in Charlottesville

How your crawl space is repaired and protected depends on any existing waterproofing measures and their condition, as well as the extent of any damage. 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.
