Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Chapel Hill, NC

Many homes in Chapel Hill, NC, and throughout the Research Triangle were built with a crawl space to elevate the house off the ground and store utilities like pipes. This is useful, but crawl spaces are not without problems. Vented dirt crawl spaces allow water, mold, pests, and other hazards to run amok under your house. Nipping these problems in the bud before they impact your home’s safety and your family’s health is crucial. 

Doing so on your own is not a good idea, so Tar Heel Basement Systems wants to be your partner in permanent crawl space repair and encapsulation. We are well-equipped to handle crawl space dangers, thoroughly inspect this area of your house, and install the best solutions to improve its health and safety. We have been trusted crawl space professionals in Chapel Hill for 20 years, and we are ready to help you today!

Crawl Space Problems in Chapel Hill

Maintaining vigilance of the condition of your Chapel Hill crawl space is crucial, but we do not advise that you go into this cramped, sensitive, and hazardous area to inspect it. Leave that to professionals at Tar Heel who are experienced and equipped to handle it. We will look for water intrusion, wet insulation, ineffective vapor barriers, condensation, mold, wood rot, pests, and other issues. In your main living space, you also can keep an eye out for similar problems like mold and pests, as well as elevated humidity, musty odors, sagging floors, and higher-than-normal energy bills.

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Chapel Hill

Water and humidity are common causes behind most crawl space problems, and Chapel Hill has no shortage of them. Humidity, primarily during the summer months, can be unbearable, and Chapel Hill typically receives 46 inches of rain per year, also mostly during the summer. This muggy air and water enter your home through open crawl space vents, creating the right conditions for mold growth and a haven for pests. Vents also contribute to the stack effect, and dangers like mold spores will rise from the crawl space and circulate in the air throughout your home. Additionally, if your home’s load was not correctly calculated, over spanned floor joists will not properly support the structure. 

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation Solutions in Chapel Hill

At Tar Heel, our crawl space repair and encapsulation solutions are completely customizable to fit exactly what your Chapel Hill crawl space needs to stay healthy and dry. Interior drains, drainage matting, and sump pumps are used to waterproof your crawl space; our unique thermal insulation helps regulate the temperature; crawl space supports shore up sagging floors and floor joists; a thick and durable vapor barrier, as well as airtight vent covers and doors, encapsulate the space; and an energy-efficient dehumidifier controls moisture and humidity.
