Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Virginia Beach

In Virginia Beach, safeguarding your home starts with your crawl space. Our city’s unique climate, featuring hot, humid summers and cool, moist winters, can lead to significant crawl space issues, such as excessive humidity and moisture damage to wood and insulation.

Our local soil composition—primarily sandy and silty—can further exacerbate these issues, especially after frequent rainfall. That’s where JES Foundation Repair comes in. With our deep understanding of Virginia Beach’s specific challenges, we’re here to offer effective solutions tailored to your home.

Crawl Space Problem Signs in Virginia Beach

Stay alert for problem signs such as mold growth, pest invasions, and elevated humidity levels in your crawl space. Identifying these issues early can stop more significant damage and expensive repairs in the future, safeguarding your home’s safety and structural integrity.

Additionally, watch for other less obvious signs such as unusual odors, water pooling, and insulation damage, as these can also signal underlying problems that need prompt attention. Regular inspections and maintenance are key to catching these issues early and maintaining a healthy home environment.

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Virginia Beach

Crawl space issues in Virginia Beach often stem from our area’s soil and weather. The mix of sandy and silty soils, combined with the area’s average 47 inches of rain per year, puts pressure on crawl spaces, leading to potential flooding and damage. Age-related wear and tear, such as tears in vapor barriers, can also contribute to these problems.

They did an excellent job! Jake H and Dontay W were very professional and gave daily updates on the progress. When they left, we couldn't even tell they had been here they cleaned up so well. Definitely happy with their work and would recommend to anyone.

The crew foreman, Rod, kept me informed of their arrival time. Upon arrival we covered the installation details and everything was laid out as planned. He and his crew (Keenan and Shaq) were very courteous. The work was executed very timely and the workmanship exceeded my expectations! Would certainly recommend this hard working crew!

We had a lot of hills we had to climb and plans to change but the JES team did it. They started the project, ran into some issues, and had to rewrite the plans. I made a few calls and management came out and the project was back on. Joseph “Joe” Palotas, Certified Field Inspector, and Nick Feaster, Sales Manager, did an amazing job of making sure we could continue the repairs when we hit a wall. Neither Joe nor Nick are scared to get their hands dirty. Nick even came out and explained in detail what needed to be done and put on his boot and went to work helping. The crew, Michael Burrell, Steve Marshall, and Nick Feaster are very nice, polite young men. They did an excellent job getting everything done in an acceptable time manner. When the project was complete they took the time to explain everything to me in great detail. Very happy with the service JES provided.

I moved into my home just over a year ago and have had three basement floodings. After trying to figure out the solution on my own, I gave JES a call. Best decision I ever made. The three young men who performed the basement waterproofing did an standing job for me. They were professional and courteous.

We had a drain system installed by JES last week. The installation went well. Our foreman and crew were great and if they ran into any issues they let us know and gave us a solution. We haven't had a chance to test the system yet, but I will update once we have. Our sales person (Joe Palotas) went above and beyond! He walked us through everything on our initial meeting and made us feel comfortable with the direction we went. I would highly recommend requesting him.

Bradley was on time and very friendly. Even after we determined that the service I was looking for isn’t a service JES provides and I felt like I had wasted his time he remained professional and pleasant and assured me it was no trouble and he was happy to take a look around while he was here to see if there were any concerns that he could inform me about.Although I won’t be using this company for this project, I am pleased with experience and will definitely consider JES for future needs if they arise.(the service I was wanting: to have an egress window cut into the basement foundation)Update 12/7/22 – Bradley just called me and informed me that he found someone who may be able to help with the egress window. He definitely went above and beyond!

I had forman Charles and installers Hunter, Ricco, and Rock come out and encapsulate my crawl space today. The guys were prompt, professional, and very polite! I highly recommend their work (they need a drone to help with photos in tight crawlspaces like mine lol). This is a huge expensive project, but a heck of an investment. Dont hire your cousin to do this job (the previous owner of my house did this, my floors sag and i had mold on my joists), hire professionals, I highly recommend the JES crew. I will tell all my friends to go with JES if they have foundation issues. 10 out of 10! Thanks again guys!!!
