Because they don't spend much time there, most homeowners in the Bay Area of California don't put much thought into their crawl space. It is not a place that you and your family spend a lot of time in. If anything, it may just be a place to store old belongings or holiday decorations. However, when it comes to structural integrity and the overall health of your home, your crawl space is extremely important.
Your crawl space is a major load bearing portion of your home. In order for your home to remain stable and healthy, your crawl space needs to be strong and free of moisture. Poor soil conditions can cause structural problems in your crawl space, such as:
If these issues are present in your crawl space, you may have noticed certain problems in your home, including sloping floors, drywall cracks, and uneven window frames. A damp, weak, or rotting crawl space will cause these problems and more. Fortunately, Bay Area Underpinning has the perfect crawl space solution: screw jacks from ECP (Earth Contact Products). Our team of experts can install or replace your crawl space screw jacks to lift and stabilize your settling floors without using messy concrete.
How do you know it's time to call a professional? Repairing sagging floors and failing crawl spaces isn't a DIY job. Not only is it unsafe, but using jacks and columns from your local hardware store will only be a temporary fix.
