Crawl Space Repair Solutions

Most crawl spaces are moldy, foul-smelling spaces that homeowners avoid at all costs. Many of them flood, and they’re often filled with debris left over from when the house was constructed. In more extreme cases, they can be rotting structures with rodents, animals, and other pests living within. We can help prevent or correct moisture and humidity problems with our custom crawl space moisture barrier solutions.

No matter what type of crawl space repair solution you might need, Thrasher Foundation Repair has the experience and proven products to make things right. We install crawl space dehumidifiers, insulation, crawl space sump pumps, vent covers, vapor barrier and more – all designed specifically for crawl spaces. 

Crawl space repair is the perfect solution to help you save money on utility bills, avoid unnecessary repairs, and create a healthy living space in your home. With crawl space encapsulation, you will gain valuable space for storage and protect your home once we have sealed your crawl space with a durable vapor barrier.

At Thrasher, it’s our job to make sure that your musty crawl space is transformed into a cleaner, drier, healthier, and more energy-efficient space

Our Approach to Crawl Space Repair

If your crawl space is damp, smells, needs to be winterized or is exhibiting settlement issues, our team will conduct a complete on-site inspection, consultation and same-day estimate for a complete solution. Thrasher’s complete crawl space repair solution includes:

Install Airtight Doors & Vent Covers

Sealing your crawl space doors and vents stops the cycle of cold, humidity, and moisture entering from the outside air.

Remove Any Standing Water Sources

The next step is to eliminate any sources of flooding in your crawl space by installing a crawl space drain and sump pump system.

Repair the Structure

If your crawl space is sagging or damaged by prolonged mold and rot, the next step is to install crawl space support jacks to help restore your structure.

Encapsulate & Insulate the Crawl Space

To stop moisture from passing through your floors and porous concrete walls, a crawl space vapor barrier should be installed. Installing crawl space drainage matting underneath the crawl space liner will help direct water to the drainage system and sump pump.

Install A Dehumidifier

Installing an energy-efficient, self-draining crawl space dehumidifier will keep your space dry. Our crawl space dehumidifier system includes a filter that removes particles from the air as small as 2 microns. This ensures that your crawl space is protected from mold, dust mites, and mildew damage – permanently.
