A sagging crawl space is more common than you may think. We are frequently contacted by frustrated homeowners experiencing this issue, which can be unsafe and costly. Not only is it a headache, but the thought of having to rebuild the entire structure is a nightmare for homeowners.
That’s why our customers breathe a sigh of relief when we tell them that their situation is not as dire as they may imagine and that we can repair their sagging crawl space and restore its structural strength without having to rebuild the entire structure. Be aware of other crawl space repair companies that may try to scare you and convince you that the only solution is to rebuild. This is NOT your only option.
This doesn’t mean that your crawl space issues do not need to be addressed, they do, and as soon as possible in order to keep that area—and the rest of your house that is supported by the crawl space—safe and sound. The situation will only worsen and could eventually start to bow walls and cause serious foundation issues.
How did your crawl space problem begin? Here a few possible reasons.
- Often times, crawl space support pillars are built on weak soils which aren’t able to bear the weight of your entire home. Eventually, these supports will start to sink further into the earth and cause uneven floors and wall cracks.
- Sometimes, the contractor who builds a home won’t properly space out the support beams, causing more weight to be placed on certain supports and causing them to sink into the dirt.
- When crawl spaces are wet and humid, they become an ideal environment for mold and termites. These termites will eat away at the support beams underneath your home.
- The foundation walls themselves can fail for many reasons. Most often, these walls will be damaged by foundation settling due to weak soils around the home.
Our team of crawl space experts have seen all of these issues personally and up close, multiple times, when inspecting homes. But what may seem like a hopeless and costly situation can be remedied if you use the right system.
Bix Basement Systems can install strong, durable crawl space structural supports designed to stabilize your crawl space and stop it from sagging further and causing more costly damage, without having to rebuild your entire crawl space.
