Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Richmond, VA


If you live in the Richmond metro area, it’s important to consider crawl space encapsulation services provided by JES Foundation Repair. This will help protect your crawl space and foundation from the consistently humid climate in the region. When your crawl space is damp, it becomes a breeding ground for mold and condensation, which can spread throughout your entire home. Don’t wait to address these issues – ensure the health of your home and crawl space by getting them fixed as soon as you notice any problems.

In the Richmond Metro Area, many homes are constructed on sandy soils, and a significant number have vented dirt crawl spaces. These factors can have a negative impact on the overall condition of your home. At JES, we have extensive experience in repairing and sealing damaged crawl spaces, providing effective solutions to address these issues.

Crawl Space Problem Signs in Richmond

When doing a home inspection, it is essential to look for evidence of problems in the crawl space. Mold, high electricity costs, and a buildup of humidity are all evidence that your crawl space has been impacted by water. On top of everything else, a damp crawl space can lead to decaying wood and wet insulating materials in the structure of your crawl space. The repercussions of overlooking obvious signs of deterioration in a crawl space can be costly and hazardous. 

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Richmond

In the Richmond Metro Area, many homes face crawl space damage primarily due to the presence of sandy soil. This type of soil is prone to washout, leading to sinking or uneven foundations and crawl spaces. It is crucial to maintain a stable foundation, as the soil’s instability can result in dangerous sinkholes. Additionally, the stack effect can draw in unpleasant odors and moisture from the ground. If your crawl space has open vents, it becomes susceptible to water intrusion and pest infestation.

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation Solutions in Richmond

JES is here to assist you in restoring your crawl space with effective solutions. To combat excessive moisture in your crawl space, we provide two reliable options: vapor barriers and crawl space drainage systems, such as interior drains. As spring brings its fair share of rainfall in Virginia, our crawl space repair services become crucial for maintaining a dry home. JES offers additional solutions to preserve your crawl space, including dehumidifiers, sump pump system, and more. Count on us to keep your house protected and free from unwanted moisture.

We had some concerns with some spots in the basement (water spots, white spots) and called JES for a free estimate/inspection. Eric Oliver came and was fantastic. Knowledgeable, honest and straight forward. Really appreciated the explanation for what we were seeing and now have the peace of mind that we don’t have any major issues. Thanks Eric!

To start, Our Sales representative Blaine Harvey was very professional. Did a complete inspection of the property. Made a few recommendations but really focused and addressed our concern/problem areas. This is greatly appreciated.Roberto and Jose Martinez, the installation crew were very polite and professional as well. Addressed all concerns and answered every question showing their expertise in the field. They were very clean throughout the installation. Under the house was left better than before. We had plastic underneath but needed to be removed in order for them to work. Did not expect them to re-line the ground upon completion but they used heavy duty plastic as a replacement. This is greatly appreciated. It is always the little things that make the difference in projects to homeowners. I would like to also mention Jo in the Richmond area office. Was very helpful in getting the information on the account up to date and taking the payment over the phone. Very well spoken and appreciate the small chit chat. She was a tremendous asset. We will need future work (Cleanspace) and would like to work with JES again.Thank youAndrea

We are in the 19 month of an expected 3 month addition build and kitchen remodel. During the process major errors were made in our foundation for the addition that led to flooding and our new addition crawl space not even being able to pass inspection.Brian at JES came in and helped us understand everything that had gone wrong with the original foundation work by our contractor and then helped us create a plan with him and JES to fix everything and get it right.Brian came by the house regularly, checked on our needs, helped us with financing, and helped us prep for the work.Then Paul and team came in and in 2 days totally transformed but was called “the mud room” (our addition crawl space) to a place that could pass foundation inspections and was clean and usable storage space.I cannot say in words how grateful I am for JES and team. Not only did they do the work with excellence … they cared and excelled in listening to us and working with us to rectify a really challenging situation.Thank you JES !
