The Many Methods to Crawl Space Repair

The Many Methods to Crawl Space Repair - Image 1

Any homeowner that has a crawl space knows that it is not always one of the most glamorous additions to the home, however, it is a vital component to the entire home environment. Many homeowners are also unaware of the exact condition of their crawl space area, being that it is not the most easily accessible. Many times, however, crawl spaces can be the nucleus of a variety of issues with the rest of the home.

Crawl spaces may contain poor structural support, which can lead to sagging floors and further home damage. A common cause is due to the initial installation of wood posts. Over time, the wood posts can start to decompose or break down, which causes support failure. Luckily, Fortress is able to install the SmartJack® system for crawl space stabilization. These steel jacks are capable of supporting massive loads and can even move sagging floors back to their original position, making them an ideal repair product.

Aside from support issues, old and dirty crawl spaces can be very susceptible to mold and moisture. When water or moisture enters into a humid, dirty crawl space, it can promote mold growth, leaving a musty smell lingering through your home. Crawl space waterproofing is another common service provided by Fortress Foundation Solutions, which includes several products. CleanSpace®, shown in the photo attached, is a vapor barrier that encapsulates the entire crawl space area and prevents unwanted outside material from entering. This product does wonders for ensuring a healthy and clean crawl space for many, many years.
