Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Northern Virginia

There are numerous advantages to having an encapsulated crawl space for homeowners in Northern Virginia. Crawl space encapsulation is a permanent solution to protect your crawl space from rainwater and other elements. Washington, DC, has deep, well-drained soil, as opposed to the silty loam and expansive clay soil found in Northern Virginia. Year-round rain is common in Northern Virginia, making for a very wet environment. This makes protecting and encapsulating your home’s crawl space very important. JES Foundation Repair can provide you with permanent crawl space encapsulation, as well as other solutions you may need to protect your crawl space. 

Crawl Space Problem Signs in Northern Virginia

It’s critical to be aware of potential problem signs when inspecting the crawl space of your Northern Virginia home. Mold, pest infestations, and a buildup of humidity are all signs that your crawl space has been damaged by water. It will save you time and money in the long run if you know the signs of damage to your crawl space. Ignoring the obvious signs of crawl space damage can lead to additional problems that can cost you more than you intended to spend.

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Northern Virginia

A wide range of factors can cause crawl space damage. Many crawl space problems are caused by the combination of expansive clay and silty loam soil and frequent wet weather in the area, which causes water pressure to press against your crawl space. As a result, water seeps into your basement or crawl space. Some of the other causes, such as an ineffective vapor barrier, are more of a wear-and-tear concern. Your crawl space’s foundation may shift if water collects inside or if the earth shifts due to the unique soil in Northern Virginia.

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation Solutions in Northern Virginia

Crawl space repair issues can be solved permanently with the help of JES. A crawl space dehumidifier or a full vapor barrier reduces humidity levels in the area. Because of the hot, humid summers and cold, wet winters, the climate in Northern Virginia necessitates appropriate solutions to ensure that the problem is fixed correctly the first time. Contact us today for more information about our crawl space repair and encapsulation services.

We had JES repair one side of our sinking foundation years ago and they did a fantastic job. When we recently saw wall cracks on the opposite side of the house, we immediately called them. They are incredibly responsive and so trustworthy. Jay came out, did a thorough inspection, and explained that we had a door problem, not a foundation problem. He also confirmed that JES’s years old fix our our foundation is perfect. We are so relieved to have the piece of mind that JES provides and appreciated Jay’s professionalism, comprehensiveness, and the fact that he went above and beyond (he even did a temporary fix for my door!).

The team who fixed our support beams/foundation was wonderful. I can’t say enough good things about Freddy Zavaleta, Walter Zavaleta, and Jaime Salas who did the repairs: they were friendly, timely, and did wonderful work. Also, the permit team at JES really helped us when we still hadn’t received word from the city and it had been 6 weeks (and my husband and I had been sleeping on the couch and floor because the support beams were so bad under our room). Thank you to the entire team!

I've now had JES complete two projects in my exposed crawlspace. Both times, they have added adjustable jacks on top of footers and either replaced a main beam or added a supplemental metal I Beam. I've been extremely impressed with their quality of work, timeliness, and efficiency. They show up ready to work and are sure to ask questions if needed. I spent time with both crews down in the crawl space and appreciated their professionalism and willingness to make things right.Foreman: Jaime CastilloAntonio CanalesJose Rafael GarciaThe only thing I was not pleased with was how little the office side of things kept in touch with me prior to pinning down this second date. I was told on multiple occasions I'd be receiving an update from the office and each time I had to call them. Again, overall I am very happy, hats off to the site workers and everyone I spoke to the in the office was very pleasant, I just wish they had provided more updates without being prompted. Would do business with again in the future.

Jaime Castillo (foreman), and Antonio Canales were absolutely AMAZING! They stayed in communication with us throughout the process, and made sure that everything was up to par. I highly recommend this crew! They are courteous, kind, and cleaned up well after they finished. This team came in after a previous team made a hot mess the week prior. The concern they showed was amazing. Give this team a raise!

We had our outside walkway lifted today as it had sunk to a dangerous angle. JES gave us a thorough inspect and estimate. They arrived early and did an excellent job being very respectful of the lawn and gardens. Bryan Rutherford and Austin Hicks were the technicians on the job. Very pleasant to deal with and explained everything. Thanks JES.

Jay came out to my house to conduct a free estimate to see if some of the cracks in my foundation were symptomatic of a larger problem, or were anything to worry about. He was very professional, took some measurements – including with a laser level – and looked around for any additional signs of a foundation issue. He took the time to explain things to me, and really helped me understand my foundation, terminology, and things to watch for! He helped to point out that I wasn't in any danger from the issues I saw, and gave me helpful advice on ways to make sure it stays that way! Would highly recommend JES to anyone (and would come back to them if I ever have any other issues), but especially would recommend to first time homeowners who have questions and want a straight up and honest answer on their issues!

Booked an estimate for some work in a crawl space at a home in WV. Rick Smith showed up but was unable to provide an estimate due to clearance within the crawl space. He was able to answer a few questions and provide some guidance on how to move forward. It was unfortunate that we were unable to obtain service from this company.

Rick Smith provided a very thorough inspection of a foundation/moisture issue which has been plaguing one of the rooms in our home. Rick spent a total of four hours meticulously examining all aspects of what could possibly be causing the problem. He carefully explained his findings in a way that was comprehensible for individuals who worked outside of the construction industry. Ultimately, he determined that the issue was unrelated specifically to our foundation and provided tips on how to deal with our problem area, despite the fact that this would mean that JES would not be receiving our business. We really appreciated his time, attention, and honesty in finding a solution to our problem, rather than just pushing a product. Rick demonstrated patience and obvious expertise. For future issues that appear to have a foundation nexus, we will return to JES because of our amazing experience with Rick.

JES stabilized our house foundation which is in sandy soil close to tidal water. The supervisor, Moises Paz came to the house several times prior to the repair to ensure the engineer had a clear understanding of the problem. He stayed in touch every step of the process. The crew Foreman Jaime Castillo and his team Antonio Canales and Jason Morales were very professional. They put down sheeting to protect the lawns and were careful around the shrubs. Mr. Castillo explained everything he was doing and why. They cleaned up, added top soil and seeded. Very satisfied. We recommend JES and Mr. Paz for any foundation work in Maryland.

Jorge, the project manager, maintained communications well, answered my questions in a timely manner, and offered up solutions which met the needs of the specific project. Ahmed Fotana and Kevin Roberts, the two on-site technicians, were punctual, took the time to educate me while performing the job, and the workmanship met my quality expectations. Great job finishing the job. Thank you!

We had our seasonal inspection done by JES today. Andre McDuffie was my service technician and he was excellent! He identified the concerns we had and did his best to correct. He made it very understandable as to why we were having the concerns we do. He will be putting a proposal and price together for the work that needs to be done after discussing it with his manager. Andre is a true credit & and strong asset to JES.

My field inspector Rick Smith drove 2 1/2 hours and then spent 3 hours with me fully inspecting my foundation and explaining every detail of the process and educating me along the way. I felt like he really cared and wasn’t just trying to sell me the most expensive product. Because I felt so comfortable with Rick, I feel confident that JES is going to go above and beyond in repairing my foundation and protecting my home.

My original appointment was to be on a Friday at 2pm. JES texted me the Monday prior asking if I would like to change the appointment to Tuesday at 2, which was great. The inspector, Jay called early Tuesday to see if we could meet at 1130. Jay showed up on time and we immediately dug into the issue…a likely sunken corner foundation of my carport. Jay covered all the possible solutions, went thru the warranty, timing, cost, etc. At no point did I feel pressured to make a decision and Jay conducted himself in a pleasant and professional manor.
