Structural Repairs in Springdale
Damage to your crawl space is like a viral infection; whatever happens there will affect every other part of your home. Crawl spaces are normally damp and can even collect standing water, which creates excessive humidity. All that water soaks into the wood of the floor joists and support beams — and even into the concrete and masonry of the foundation — which results in mold, fungal growth, and wood rot. If this moisture problem is not addressed, the components of your crawl space become spongy and weak and struggle to support the weight of your home.
Indications of crawl space problems:
- Floors become uneven and begin to creak and sag.
- The sheetrock of your home develops jagged cracking.
- Windows and doors no longer open and close smoothly.
- Your house smells dank and musty.
