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.
