Your crawl space is often out of sight and thus out of mind, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t important. Problems with your crawl space can have a wide-ranging and serious impact on the rest of your home.
Many of these problems originally stem from the outdated habit of venting crawl spaces during construction. While this might sound good on paper, in practice it’s a disaster. A vented crawl space means the air in the crawl space is always cold, moist, and drafty which leads to poor air quality and fosters mold growth. This, in turn, can lead to decreased energy efficiency for your home as cold air from your crawl space enters the home and heated air from your home dissipates into the crawl space. A dirty crawl space can also lower the quality of the air you breath since most of the air in your home passes through the crawl space at some point, picking up mold spores and other contaminants.
HomeSpec Waterproofing and Foundation Repair can help turn your crawl space from a detriment into an asset. We offer a wide range of solutions including:
Sinking concrete can be a serious issue for a home leading to tripping hazards, pooling water, and more. Unfortunately, the only solution has often been mudjacking or slabjacking, which have a variety of issues, notably their long cure times. Luckily there’s a new solution in the form of PolyLevel®.
Generally, the sinking is due to soil beneath the slabs washing away, shrinking, or settling. This causes the unevenness that you see. With PolyLevel® we can inject a polyurethane foam beneath the slab to fill these voids, leveling out the concrete. Not only is this method highly effective, but it also cures far faster than most other methods and is waterproof.
