Your crawlspace is one of the most important parts of your home's foundation.

Each home is an original design with specific needs and repairs. Our evaluations are free, and we are happy to go over the various options and prices with you. We are here to find what help your home really needs. It is important to note that crawlspace repair may take several days to complete and many times is weather dependent. Trenches must be dug by hand, and woodwork repair must be done in steps to ensure the house is properly supported.

Crawlspace Encapsulation

Mold grows in a dark and damp climate and can cause an extensive list of problems including:

  • Musty smell
  • Allergic reactions
  • Wood decay and rot
  • Moist climate

Encapsulation protects your home

Our encapsulation method is a tried and true way of protecting your home from mold and mildew. Our first step is to determine whether some form of conditioning will be needed to prepare the crawlspace for encapsulation. If there is sitting water in the crawlspace for example, the proper steps will need to be taken to prepare for the next steps.

The next step of the process is to begin the encapsulation by installing our vapor barrier. This barrier is basically a lining of plastic that goes under your home in the crawlspace. We cover both the walls and the floors with different plastics to better suit their condition. A thinner 6mm plastic is used on the walls, and a more durable 10mm plastic is used on the floor.

Since this is an encapsulation method, we cover all walls and floors of your crawlspace. This ensures that no vapors enter into your home. After the walls and floors are covered in plastic, we then completely tape all of the seams of the plastic sheeting. This ensures that the encapsulation will thoroughly protect your home from continuing damage.

General Clean Out

Depending on the nature of your crawlspace, it may be a convenient place to store things, or it may be such a dark, damp place that you can’t use it for anything. In either case, to get the best use out of your crawlspace while protecting your home from the harsh conditions that often cause structural damage and poor air quality within your home, getting professional help to get your crawlspace cleaned out is a great step toward increasing the cleanliness, safety, and longevity of your home.


Insulation Services

It may not seem necessary to insulate this dark area underneath your home, but you may not realize how much your home can be affected by your crawlspace. First of all, insulating your crawlspace is a huge benefit for homes with cold floors. Getting your crawlspace insulated will allow your home to retain more heat than an uninsulated one.

Particularly in older homes and houses with cracked foundations, moisture buildup can cause problems such as structural damage, mold, poor indoor air quality, and pest issues. Proper insulation can help reduce moisture buildup and the amount of air that escapes the crawlspace and enters the home. Pair this service with crawlspace encapsulation for the best defense.


Crawlspace Door

Gain convenient access to your crawlspace for storage and maintenance needs. Whether you have no door or your current door needs repaired or replaced, we’re happy to help you out. A properly secure door will help keep out the elements and potential pests.



Over time, the amount of usable room in your crawlspace can dwindle for a variety of reasons. Usually, this occurs as a result of compromised structural components from termites or water damage which causes your home to sink.

Crawlspace excavation is a serious job that needs handled by experienced professionals. That’s why you should place your trust in a company with the expertise to handle this type of construction job in a way that preserves the structural integrity of your home.


Structural Damage

Over the lifetime of a home, there are plenty of ways the structure of your home can become compromised. When your home’s structure within the crawlspace becomes damaged, it translates to issues with the rest of your home. After all, the crawlspace is part of your home’s foundation. For instance, poorly designed structural supports, weather-damaged beams and columns, or improperly vented crawlspaces will result in sagging floors or worse. At the very least, walking on sagging floors can cause moisture, mold, and allergens to more easily make their way from your crawlspace into your home.

Crawlspace Repair

The crawlspace can often be a dark and uninviting place. Bugs, mold and moisture love to find their way into your crawlspace and make their home there.

Even though your crawlspace includes vents that help with the overall climate underneath your home, this isn't always enough. Even with vents, it’s still possible for standing water to accumulate during periods of heavy rain, and this can take days to completely dry out. This moist, humid setting creates the perfect environment for mold, mildew and fungus to grow.

If these continue to grow, they can develop into a health risk for your family. This humidity also creates extra moisture that penetrates the wood foundation. This can lead to the development of wood rot and may attract termites.

Heating & Cooling the Crawlspace

One major question we get from customers is about heating and cooling the crawlspace. They usually ask about the money they will be losing in energy costs to heat and cool the crawlspace. First, we respond that there may be a slight increase in energy cost, but we are also protecting the most important investment you will ever own. This is worth the pennies on the dollar it takes to effectively heat and cool the crawlspace. Secondly, in the winter you are not actually losing the energy. As we know, heat rises, and if heat rises in the crawlspace it is only going into your home. What if I told you that you will never have to hear your spouse complain about the chilly wood floors in your new home? Would that be worth the small amount of money? And third, we have never had any customer call after our work is completed complaining about energy cost. Truth is, you will never even notice.

Air Quality

You may be breathing in harmful mold spores and not even realize it. Since we are a certified air inspector in Lafayette, Indiana you can be sure that you'll get an accurate reading of what is floating in the air that you breathe.


According to a study by the Mayo Clinic, nearly all chronic sinus infections are a result of mold. Since up to 40% of the air we breathe in the home can come from the crawlspace, mold in the crawlspace means mold in the home. The EPA recommends keeping humidity levels in the crawlspace to 40%–50% to reduce the likelihood of mold formation.
