Crawl Space Repair Solutions & Encapsulation in Greater St. Louis, Western KY, Lake of the Ozarks, Central & Southern IL & MO.
The post-WW2 era saw a surge in the popularity of crawl space foundations for housing, as they offered speedier and more affordable construction than homes built with full basements. Unfortunately, builders at the time weren’t aware of some potential pitfalls associated with this type of structure—namely problems related to ventilation that could cause mold growth, structural decay, pest infestations and inefficient energy utilization. By understanding these issues now thanks to advancements in knowledge over time we can proactively take steps towards avoiding them going forward .
Midwest Basement Tech offers reliable solutions for all the common crawl space problems. Protect your home, your family’s health and lower your energy bills with our Crawl Shield Encapsulation System and structural repair services.
