The crawlspace of a home is often out of sight and out of mind, but this space is more important than you may think. There are crucial structural elements found in the crawlspace including foundational walls, pipes, and wooden supports that make it important to know what is happening in your crawlspace. Moisture, flooding, and mold are common problems in crawlspaces that can lead to damage of the structural materials. You can help prevent potential issues by having your crawlspace inspected by a professional.

It is best to have your crawlspace inspected by our professionals twice per year, in the fall and in the spring. We will do a thorough inspection of your crawlspace and check for moisture issues, signs of flooding, mold, pests, and structural damage.
Water damage and flooding are common issues in crawlspaces because of the wet ground and the inability to effectively control water in the space. Excess moisture can cause the foundational walls to crack which will make leaks and flooding more likely to occur. When we inspect your crawlspace, we will look signs of a moisture issue or damage that increases the risk of flooding. You can help protect your crawlspace from flooding and moisture issues by regularly removing debris from your gutters and downspouts and ensuring that the downspouts drain the water 4-6 feet away from the foundation.

- Broken or leaking pipes
