Crawl Space Repair

Do you have a wet or damp crawl space? Most homeowners don’t know they have a wet crawl space until they are faced with expensive foundation repair bills due to water damage and foundation problems. Next time you’re outside, look inside your crawl space for water intrusions such as water puddles, standing water, insect infestation, and mold growth. These signs usually indicate water seepage, usually from small cracks caused by settlement or sinking foundations. At WCI Basement Repair, we specialize in crawl space repair to restore your crawl space back to normal and keep it dry in the long run. Contact us today for a free crawl space repair estimate.

Signs Of A Wet Crawl Space

Oftentimes, you could have a wet crawl space and have no clue. While the signs of a wet crawl space may be obvious, it can be less obvious what the actual problem is. That’s why it’s important to call WCI if you notice any of these signs:

  • wet crawl space with insulation hanging downMold or moisture damage in the crawl space
  • Musty odors in the living areas
  • Condensation on air conditioning ductwork or equipment
  • Condensation on insulation, water pipes
  • Buckled hardwood floors
  • High humidity in the living area
  • Insect infestations
  • Rot in wooden framing

These symptoms are most often noticed in the humid spring and summer seasons but can occur at any time of the year. Often, the heating and air conditioning contractor is the first person the residents call to deal with the problem. Typically though, the problem is not due to a failure of the air conditioning system; it results from poor moisture control in the wet crawl space and can be solved by calling the waterproofing contractors at WCI Basement Repair.
