DBS works on crawl space projects very frequently, the crawl spaces have a few common reasons why they need repair. The crawl space is important to the safety and environment of the entire house, usually, problems that stem towards the basement or crawl space in the home progress to be in other areas of the house, making more problems than just a simple crawl space job.
When talking about the common crawl space problems and repairs, we first looked at a home in Orr, MN that was an example of what DBS often sees when customers give inquiries about their crawl spaces.
One of the most common problems we see with crawl spaces is water damage. Many crawl spaces become moldy or have rotten smells that come from moisture being in the home. DBS has several different waterproofing procedures that make sure the crawl space has proper drainage, drainage matting, and systems to manage the water in the entire house for an overall dry crawl space. This prevents water damage and mold from this specific area of the home and to spreading further than the crawl space.
Another common service we offer for crawl spaces is insulation. Many of our customers do not always consider insulation of the home necessary, but when winter comes and our homeowners notice their home is cold or their utility bill is higher than usual, the basement and crawl space are the first places we look because the environment in the base of the home spreads up, affecting the entire home with those conditions. By repairing your crawl space conditions, the rest of your home can also benefit. DBS can send a design specialist to create a solution for your crawl space with a free, no-obligation estimate!
