As important as a crawl space is to the thermal efficiency and moisture control of a home, many homeowners neglect to have theirs serviced or even inspected. Many homeowners may not even know that it’s necessary, and may simply treat the area as vacant space. This can lead to a loss of waterproofing and sealing, allowing drafts and moisture to stop it from functioning effectively until a crawl space company comes out to address the issues. Here are some indications that your crawl space may need such attention.
One of the best indications that your crawl space is no longer adequately sealed, is if you notice your ground-level floors are not as warm as they used to be once the cooler months roll around. This often means the floor is losing heat to the crawl space air, which is being lost to draftiness.
With a constant thermal leak in your home through the crawl space and likely other areas as well, you may notice your energy costs going up month to month. If you notice that your energy bills are getting bigger, but there haven’t been any rate increases, have the crawl space inspected.
Another common indication that your crawl space is no longer waterproof is if there is a dank or moldy smell in your home. If you’ve been cleaning and simply can’t find the source of the mustiness, it may be coming from the crawl space.
Most homeowners will remember that a home inspection is generally needed by banks or mortgage companies before a home is bought, but once that happens, few people think about it again, unless there’s a problem. Without regular inspections, small issues can grow into much larger ones, which also makes them much more costly. Here are some indications that you may want to call a professional foundation repair company.
If you begin to notice cracking in the coating of paint on your walls, or cracking of the drywall or plaster, it can be an indication that your foundation is shifting. This shifting moves the walls, and small cracks appear on the stress lines.
Greenville residents that have existing drainage issues around their homes will likely have some form of water damage that may or may not be able to be seen. If your yard puddles after it rains, you should have your foundation inspected.
Windows need a very straight and level frame to slide smoothly. If your foundation has shifted, the frame won’t be as straight, and you may begin to notice that some of your windows have become difficult to operate.
If it’s been a few years since you’ve last had your foundation or crawl space inspected, there’s never a better time than now. Even if you haven’t had an inspection since you bought the home, and especially if you’ve started to see one or two of the signs that we’ve talked about here, talking to a professional can help stop issues from worsening. Reach out today and talk to an expert member of our team about your needs.
