Crawl Space Repair in Genoa Township, MI
You probably don’t crawl under your Genoa Township home often, so what happens in your home’s crawl space eludes you until it causes damage. You can stop surprise damage though by hiring Foundation Solutions 360 to inspect your crawl space annually.
What Causes the Need for Crawl Space Repair in Genoa Township, MI?
Michigan homes have special needs for crawl space monitoring and maintenance. Michigan’s soil contains heavy moisture amounts. That means a home without a properly sealed crawl space experiences water and moisture buildup. Newer homes typically include a vapor seal barrier when built. Older homes may have had this, but the seal can erode or break, allowing water or moisture to enter.
Moisture in the crawl space can rot away the subflooring, the two-by-fours that form posts for some types of foundations, or the latticework that encloses the crawl space. It can also cause the formation of mildew or mold. These two fungal formations can cause respiratory issues in healthy people and exacerbate respiratory issues in those with existing conditions like asthma.
Winter temperatures weaken the crawl space’s materials. The process of freezing and thawing snow, ice, and winter mix causes the foundation and wood used in your home’s structure to expand and contract. This weakens the materials and sets up the crawl space for worse issues.
An improperly insulated and sealed crawl space can cause burst pipes during winter’s freezing temperatures. Burst pipes in the crawl spaces flood Genoa Township homes from underneath.
Even a burst pipe may go unnoticed if it begins as a small leak. You might not realize it sprang a leak until your water bill arrives and you discover how much water your household used. Fixing a leak saves you money on your water bill and your heating bill. That’s because your water heater no longer constantly cycles to try to heat water that’s leaking. Because you don’t go under your house often, you could miss these items.
