CRAWLSPACE SERVICES

IN NORTHERN, VA

Do you have a wet or musty smelling crawl space?

If so, you should consider taking action. Did you know that over 40% of the air that you breathe on the first floor of the home comes from the basement or crawl space? Because of this, crawl space waterproofing and encapsulation is essential to your family’s health.

A crawl space is essentially a small basement. In homes with crawl spaces, the living area is so close to the crawl space that moisture and unsafe air infiltrate the home, causing potential health hazards.

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A GREAT CRAWL SPACE COMPANY?

Protection for your home from the bottom up! We provide moisture control by using a high quality, tear-resistant 8mil vapor liner to cover the ground which is sealed to a high quality, tear-resistant 6mil vapor liner on the walls. All seams are taped to protect moisture from passing around the liner. If foundation vents are already present, they will be sealed. This system, along with proper drainage and a form of mechanical drying will provide great moisture control protection.

Crawl Spaces Protect Your Home Against:

  • Condensational moisture
  • High levels of humidity
  • Ground moisture vapors
  • Moisture intrusion from outside of the foundation walls

Why Should You Have a Closed Crawl Space?

  • Enhanced quality of the crawl space environment
  • Insulation reduces humidity changes during the annual seasonal cycle
  • Reduces the susceptibility to insect damage, wood rot, and mold issues by reducing moisture
  • The improvements result in overall energy savings from reduced annual energy use for heating and cooling your home

CRAWLSPACE ENCAPSULATION

Don’t put up with a damp, nasty crawl space that smells bad! These conditions can cause mold to grow and wood to rot, resulting in structural damage as well as harmful airborne mold spores.

FOUNDATION REPAIR

It’s wise to be concerned about foundation walls that have bowed, cracked or tilted, or slabs that have sunk shifted or heaved. When a foundation has structural damage, it’s a sure bet that the problem won’t go away. In fact, it usually worsens over time. If you see signs of structural damage to your home’s foundation, sidewalks or slabs, Summit can help.

CRAWLSPACE WATERPROOFING

Building scientists and other building experts recommend that crawl spaces be sealed or encapsulated. This upgrade makes buildings more energy efficient and eliminates problems with moisture, mold and pests in the crawl space. Some crawl spaces also need to be waterproofed.

DRAINAGE SYSTEMS

Does water somehow find its way into your basement? An interior perimeter drainage system addresses hydrostatic pressure – that is, the pressure of groundwater forcing its way through the basement walls or foundation.

MOISTURE CONTROL

A damp, dirty crawl space is an eyesore. But the presence of mold, wood rot, and pest in the crawl space means you have more significant problems. Moisture in a crawl space will attract mold as well as insect and animal pests.
