Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Durham, NC

Your Durham, NC, home’s crawl space is useful for elevating your house off the ground and storing utilities like plumbing and ductwork.

Mold, moisture, and pests can run rampant under your house and affect the rest of your home’s air quality and safety, as well as your family’s health.

Crawl Space Problems in Durham

While it is important to maintain the health and safety of your crawl space, it is not a good idea to go into this hazardous area under your Durham home by yourself to look for problems. However, there are several symptoms you can be aware of throughout the rest of your living space, such as increased pest activity, elevated humidity, musty odors, high energy and utility bills, and sagging or uneven floors. Once you reach out to Tar Heel Basement Systems for a free inspection, we will also check for pests and high humidity, as well as mold, condensation, water leaks or flooding, damaged vapor barriers, wet insulation, wood rot, open vents, and loose doors. 

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Durham

Humidity is at the heart of what is causing your crawl space problems. Durham has a humid subtropical climate, so this notoriously muggy air, especially during the summer, enters your home through open crawl space vents. These vents also allow bugs and other pests inside, as well as runoff from the average annual 46 inches of rainfall the area typically experiences. This creates a perfect storm for mold growth, wood rot, and other issues. The stack effect also results from open vents. This natural bottom-to-top airflow pattern allows mold spores and unconditioned air to circulate in your home, leading to additional health and safety hazards. 

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation Solutions in Durham

While they may work for other areas of your house, DIY projects are not the answer for your crawl space. Your Durham crawl space is different from others in the area, so it needs to have personalized repair and encapsulation solutions that are professionally engineered and installed. Your crawl space can benefit from our airtight vent covers and doors, vapor barrier, thermal insulation, interior drains, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and support posts. Along with being fully customizable, everything we install is made in the United States and guaranteed by nationally backed, long-term, transferrable warranties for extra protection.

Why Choose Tar Heel Basement Systems?

Your crawl space is a delicate, dangerous area that has a lot of sway over the condition of the rest of your house. Fixing and protecting this area under your Durham house is important, but it should be left to experienced professionals who have the tools and training to effectively execute these repairs. You can trust our team at Tar Heel Basement Systems to handle your crawl space with care, as thousands of other Durham homeowners have done the same.
