Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Raleigh, NC

Unpleasant odors that won’t go away, mold sprouting throughout your house, and seeing more pests than usual are telltale signs that the crawl space of your Raleigh, NC, home is in trouble. You may not think about this area underneath your house that often, but because 50% of your home’s air comes from the crawl space, its condition plays a vital role in the overall health of your home. Regularly checking it for damage and promptly repairing those issues is key. 

However, the crawl space is a delicate and dangerous area that you should not venture into on your own. The experienced professionals at Tar Heel Basement Systems have the tools, training, and proper protection and equipment to investigate your crawl space. Homeowners throughout Raleigh have trusted us with their crawl space inspections, repair, and encapsulations for nearly 20 years. If you suspect your crawl space is endangering your home, don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance.

Crawl Space Problems in Raleigh

Home essentials like ductwork and plumbing may be housed in your Raleigh crawl space, but mold, pests, and other dangers also could have taken up residence. Scheduling a crawl space inspection with the pros at Tar Heel is the best way to check for hazards. Your inspector will check for water leaks, ineffective vapor barriers, wet insulation, wood rot, high humidity, open vents, damaged doors, condensation, and other problem signs. You can also notice problem signs throughout the rest of your house, such as musty odors, increased pest activity, mold growth, higher than normal energy bills, and sagging or uneven floors

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Raleigh

Raleigh’s notorious humidity is behind most of the problems in your crawl space, but there are additional, co-occurring causes of crawl space damage, as well. Many crawl spaces were constructed with open vents intended to increase airflow and mitigate moisture and mold. But these features have been found to do more harm than good and allow Raleigh’s humid air, frequent precipitation, and pests inside. These dangers aren’t confined to the crawl space, as the poor air quality and other conditions will rise and circulate in the air throughout the home because of the stack effect. Additionally, if the home’s load was not calculated correctly, over spanned floor joists will not be able to support the structure.

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation Solutions in Raleigh

Along with checking your own crawl space for problems, installing DIY repairs is also ill-advised. It’s important to have crawl space repair and encapsulation solutions installed the right way the first time, and that’s exactly what Tar Heel experts do. Your Raleigh crawl space will benefit from a variety of our permanent solutions including vapor barriers, vent covers, interior drains, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, thermal insulation, and support posts. Everything we install is made in the USA, fully customizable to what your crawl space needs, and backed by long-term, transferrable warranties.

From the time I called to request an initial revie, until the work was completed, this process was professional and convenient. Zack came and crawled around in the very tight crawl space during the initial examination and then scoped the work and cost same day with me. John C and Brian C were the service representatives performing the installation of the membrane and foam board over a two day process. These guys worked so hard and kept me informed on status the whole way. I gave 5 stars because I've had lots of service jobs performed at my home and this team and the work done exceeded my expectations.

Cameron and Mekhi did a great job of installing a crawl drain and sump pump. They arrived on time, worked diligently, and completed the job sooner than was expected. All the while they answered my questions and provided a complete walk (crawl) through at the end. They were courteous and tried very hard to be sure I was pleased with the work. Excellent work by both of them!

The the professional manner in which every part of the team approached the job at hand was far above my expectations. The Foreman, Shane English introduced his team Evan Boswell and Jaziah Christ to me. They were courteous, hard working, kept the job site clean and organized. They were very timely arriving at job site. No waiting on my part. They ask me several times if I had any questions. And they placed items back where they needed to be. I have several other projects in mind for Tarheel Basement Solutions. I would not hesitate to recommend them for your projects.

After an annual maintenance service of our crawl space encapsulation and at the suggestion of Grant we decided to move forward with a plan to stabilize an area of our foundation that was weakened for some time. Tyree and Christian came out two days later to install beams and jacks to secure that part of the foundation. Tyree explained everything that was going to happen, what it would do to stabilize the foundation, and how long it would take. Everything went very smoothly and I went into the crawlspace to inspect the work and learn how the system would add support to the foundation. Tyree explained in terms I could understand. Both men were professional and finished in the time they laid out. This is my second experience with Tar Heel and both went well.

I hired Tarheel Basement Systems to do a crawlspace encapsulation on a property that I am renovating and preparing for the market. I could not have been more pleased with their level of professionalism and workmanship. The entire experience was positive, starting with my sales person Nathan Seeley, and including our on-site crew of Jaylan, Daniel and McKai. I would highly recommend this company for foundation and crawlspace work. 👍🏻👍🏻
