Crawl Space Repair

Crawl spaces are a common type of building construction in the Atlanta Metro as well as in the Southeast.  There are homes built at the turn of the century (19th-20th) that are still standing and doing fine on a crawl space foundation.  However, unlike basements or slab foundations, crawl spaces come with their own unique problems.  The most common of these issues that need crawl space repair are:

  • Sagging wooden beams
    • This could be due to the supports being spaced too far apart, or additional loading on the beam over time, or other factors.
  • Improper framing support
    • Such as a single joist holding up a load bearing wall, undersized joists, etc
  • Uneven or sloping floors
    • Number of issues that could cause these problems.
  • Missing or damaged columns or Piers
    • Over time columns can settle or lean and piers can deteriorate.  Once again if the piers are not spaced properly that will lead to other issues in the house.
  • Water in crawl space
    • Many crawl spaces are lower than the outside dirt which makes water want to come in the crawl space.  Not to mention many older homes have dug out areas for the furnace or HVAC system.
  • Damp, moist or stagnant air
    • With poor ventilation in a crawl space mold will begin to grow.  Old drafty houses don’t have this issue as much as newer homes with poor air circulation.  Start with vapor barriers and air circulation.
