Crawlspaces are critical for safe and efficient use of your home. Crawlspace problems can lead to sloping or uneven floors, excess humidity in your living area, cracks in your interior walls, high utility bills, and serious health concerns. Here are some signs that your crawlspace may need repairs:
- Moldy or musty smell – A moldy or musty smell is not only unappealing, it can also indicate that you have a serious moisture problem in your crawlspace. This moisture can damage your foundation and flooring. Even worse, it could lead to potentially health-threatening mold. Mold spores can cause respiratory problems and even death. Grip-Tite® offers a unique waterproofing system designed to permanently solve any crawlspace moisture issues.
- Cold living spaces or floors – Is there one room or floor in your house that never seems to get warm no matter what the thermostat is set to? If you suffer from either of these problems you may have a poorly insulated or unsealed crawlspace. As the air in your house is warmed, it rises and is replaced with air from below. If your crawlspace isn’t properly sealed and insulated, you could face increased utility bills.
- Uneven floors or cracks in walls – Over time, your house can settle causing your crawlspace walls and slab to crack. Then they cannot properly support your house. This could lead to sloping or uneven floors, cracks in your drywall, and windows or doors that “stick”. Grip-Tite® offers braces that can lift and support sagging floor joists.
