Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Miami, FL

Because basements rarely exist in Miami, this southern Florida location has many homes with crawl spaces to elevate them off the ground. This “buffer” between the ground and the rest of the house can be useful for tucking away home essentials you don’t necessarily want or need to see in your house like plumbing pipes, ducting, electrical wiring, and HVAC units. However, these areas are highly susceptible to Miami’s oppressive humidity and frequent rain. Problems like mold, pest infestations, and sagging floors can result if your crawl space is not properly sealed. 

Your crawl space can be a fragile and hazardous area of your home, so it is best not to enter it to check for problems. Leave that to the experienced crawl space specialists at Alpha Foundations. We are highly trained to inspect your crawl space, diagnose the problems and causes, and recommend and install the best solutions to ensure permanent health and safety.

Crawl Space Problem Signs in Miami

As we mentioned, we do not recommend that you venture into the crawl space of your Miami home. However, there are other problem signs you can notice throughout the rest of your house that indicate trouble in the crawl space. These include musty odors, mold growth, elevated humidity, increased pest presence, and high electric bills. During your free crawl space inspection, your Alpha Foundations specialist will check for additional issues inside the crawl space like humidity, condensation, wood rot, mold, defective vapor barriers, poor insulation, and standing or flooding water. 

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Miami

The most common causes of crawl space problems stem from home construction and environmental factors. Most Miami homes with crawl spaces were built with open vents intended to mitigate moisture issues. However, crawl space vents have been found to actually cause moisture and its related problems. This is especially a problem given Miami’s humid tropical climate and 59 inches of annual rainfall. Open vents also allow the stack effect to impact the home. The stack effect is the natural airflow in a building from bottom to top, which means that things like mold spores and unpleasant odors will rise from the crawl space and up through the rest of the home. Additionally, if the home’s load was not properly calculated, over spanned floor joists can result and fail to adequately support the structure.

Every Miami home is unique, as is its crawl space, so repair and encapsulation solutions must be tailored to the needs of each crawl space.
