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.
