Crawl Space Problem Signs in Hampton Roads

There are numerous problem signs indicating that your Hampton Roads crawl space could benefit from repair or encapsulation. Many are visible within the crawl space that your JES inspector can readily notice including wet insulation, standing water or flooding, condensation, and mold.

These include sagging floors, high electric bills, excessive humidity, mold, and more pest activity than normal. Request a free crawl space inspection and repair quote from JES before any of these problems get worse. 

crawl space condensation

Wet Crawl Space Insulation

Wet and sagging insulation in your crawl space can be a very worrying sight for any homeowner. You may not know much about the topic, but you probably know at least a little bit about the fact that insulation all around your home is important.

Condensation

Condensation and excessive humidity in the crawl space are common problems, but many homeowners may not know how these issues started or how to fix them.

Mold in crawl space has destroyed the floor joists and support beams of the house.

Crawl Space Mold

Mold can be destructive for your home’s foundation, leading to more issues such as wood rot and poor air quality.

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Hampton Roads

Crawl space problems can originate from any number of causes. Interior plumbing pipes can burst, and your Hampton Roads crawl space may not have been constructed correctly if over spanned floor joists could be failing to support the load of the home. But the most common sources of crawl space problems are open crawl space vents and the stack effect. Open vents allow humid air in the crawl space, and water from the area’s frequent precipitation also can find its way inside. The unhealthy air, moisture, and other problems like mold can rise through the house because of the stack effect’s natural airflow in a home from bottom to top. 

Open Crawl Space Vents

Open Crawl Space Vents

Crawl space vents may seem like a nice idea, which is why many older homes have them. However, open vents are increasingly being discovered to be a breeding ground for mold, bugs, and other issues.

over spanned, sagging floor joists

Over Spanned Floor Joists

If your home has a crawl space, the floors inside are being supported by floor joists. Anything that damages these integral structures is also going to damage your floors.

torn vapor barrier in crawl space

Bad Vapor Barrier

Vapor barriers are an essential part of the crawl space encapsulation process. Unfortunately, low-quality barriers are not a permanent solution, and even if they are maintained often, eventually, they will need to be replaced.
