Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Roanoke, VA

As a homeowner in Roanoke, VA,  crawl space encapsulation is a fantastic way to protect your crawl space and foundation from being damaged by the muggy, wet environment common to the Roanoke area. This type of environment makes your crawl space a breeding ground for mold growth and susceptible to a buildup of condensation. Repairing these issues as soon as possible is extremely important in keeping your home and crawl space healthy. 

Roanoke homes are also built on a combination of soils that include a top layer of silt and a middle layer of gravelly loam. These soils are very unstable, often causing sinkholes, and making foundation settlement a common problem in this part of the country. Because of this, JES Foundation Repair is well-versed in repairing and encapsulating damaged and unsealed crawl spaces. 

Crawl Space Problem Signs in Roanoke

It’s critical to check for signs of potential problems in your Roanoke, VA home’s crawl space when doing an inspection. High electric bills or mold, as well as a buildup of humidity, are all signs that your crawl space has been damaged by water. Besides the problems already mentioned, a moist crawl space can lead to wood rot and soggy insulation. The consequences of ignoring the evident signs of deterioration in a crawl space can be costly and hazardous.

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Roanoke

Most causes of crawl space damage in Roanoke have to do with unstable soils. Many homes in the area succumb to the unstable combination of silt and gravelly loam, which can be affected by soil washout, causing their foundation to settle and become structurally unstable. Because the soil has the potential to create dangerous sinkholes, having a sturdy foundation is an absolute necessity. In addition to the unstable soils, open crawl space vents can let in water and pests, while the “Stack Effect” pulls in dirty air and moisture.

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!!!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
