THE JES PROCESS
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.
Wet Crawl Space Insulation
Wet insulation in your crawl space can have serious impacts on your home.
Ineffective Vapor Barrier
A strong vapor barrier is essential in encapsulating your crawl space. If your vapor barrier isn’t properly installed or it isn’t made of a quality material, you could be facing problems like mold, excessive moisture and humidity, and high electric bills. Learn more about why you need to protect this sensitive area under your home.
Crawl Space Mold
A moldy crawl space is not only unsightly, but very unhealthy and unsafe for your home and your family.
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
If you have a vented dirt crawl space below your home, you could be dealing with unhealthy conditions you may not know about.
Over Spanned Floor Joists
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
Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Installation
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.
