Homes built on a crawl space foundation are both effective and cost-effective, which is why many Columbia area homes have utilized them over the years.
If your home has a crawl space foundation, chances are you don’t check it very closely-and we don’t blame you! There are likely some disturbing developments down there.
Unfortunately, ignorance is not bliss when it comes to your crawl space. Your foundation is very vulnerable to damage; if it is not addressed properly, you could be looking at some serious harm to your home’s integrity.
Your foundation is susceptible to a lot thanks to the continuing cycle of moisture absorption and subsequent drying. Your foundation moves around in the soil-up, down, sideways-all of this movement can cause the structural integrity of your foundation to begin to fail over time.
Additionally, your crawl space is subject to water penetration from moisture rising through its dirt floors. Couple that with the shifting and moving within your foundation and you have a recipe for an excessively wet crawl space.
A crawl space that is perpetually wet can lead to expensive damages to your home. If you don’t take swift action against a wet crawl space, you are looking at dealing with water damage, mold and bacteria growth, and rotting materials-all of which negatively effect the structural integrity of your home.
