Problems that begin in the crawl space affect the entire home

crawl space assessment

Crawl space homes are much more common in the south and west coast, but can be found just about anywhere. Since crawl spaces are left exposed to the elements, they are naturally susceptible to foundation damage.

When it comes to crawl spaces, there are 3 areas of concern:

Structural Problems:  Structural issues weaken the support system of the home, causing floors to sag, cracks in walls and doors & windows that stick – Left unaddressed, these stability issues can dramatically impact the value and appearance of your home.

Water Problems:  Water seeks the path of least resistance and enters your crawl space through weak points. Pooling water underneath the home can lead to structural damage, rot, mold, and unpleasant odors throughout the home.

Air Quality Problems:  Do you notice musty odors coming from the crawl space? In your home, hot air rises from below and escapes near the upper levels. This means the air you breath inside your home comes from the humid crawl space area, through a process known as the Stack Effect.

Crawl spaces can become a mess – wood rot, pooling water, uneven floors, foul odors and mold are just a few examples of the problems that can affect an untreated crawl space.

Fixing crawl space problems is easy with Olshan

At Olshan, we carefully investigate the problems affecting your crawl space to determine the best solution. By carefully analyzing your home and soil, we are able to not only fix the symptoms (like cracks or sagging floors), but also treat the source of the problem to ensure a long-lasting solution.

What happens if my crawl space is too low to the ground?

Small spaces are no problem for Olshan. We understand that some pier and beam crawl space homes can be very low to the ground. Sometimes under 1.5 feet. Most foundation pros are unable to navigate these tight, dark spaces.

At Olshan, we use robot crawlers designed to navigate the tough terrain under your home. These gadgets deliver real-time 4K video and are able to help us identify structural problems as well as assess issues with moisture, mold and mildew.

We offer the best technology available. Allowing us to fix crawl spaces of all types and sizes, while meeting any budget.

Built on 90 Years of industry experience and research, the experts at Olshan have developed proven methods to repair crawl space homes.

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair reduces moisture and humidity

A dirt crawl space is frequently saturated with moisture. To help eliminate moisture from the crawl space and seal it off from harmful conditions, Olshan recommends Crawl Space Encapsulation. Encapsulation helps your crawl space look and feel just like the rest of your home.

Crawl Space Encapsulation uses our SafeSeal™ Liner that acts as a vapor barrier to protect your crawl space from the negative effects of moisture. It also includes an optional air exchange system to improve indoor air quality and reduce energy costs.

Crawl Space Encapsulation is a great home improvement investment. It can improve indoor air quality, save energy, deter pests, create extra storage space and increase the value of your home.
