Floors above crawl spaces are susceptible to problems created within the crawl space itself. High moisture content is common with damp soil, which can lead to poor soil conditions and movement with traditional support columns. As the soils beneath the home become saturated, the columns can no longer provide the necessary support and then often settle.
Sagging beams and floor joists can also result from the improper spacing of existing support columns or a weakened floor system due to excessive moisture, bug damage, or wood rot. As these forces of nature occur in the crawl space, the floors above begin to noticeably sink and sag.
For the long-term success of any crawl space support system, it is essential to immediately address any drainage or water issues that are negatively affecting the crawl space. Then you must take the necessary measures to reduce the impact of moisture in the crawl space. Often a crawl space can require a drainage system and encapsulation system to control and manage the effects of water and high humidity.
