Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Detroit, MI

It’s not uncommon to find a crawl space in homes in Detroit and the surrounding area. This shallow, often damp area is typically a space homeowners rarely visit. And for good reason, crawl spaces can be dangerous to enter, and in wet and humid areas like Detroit, it becomes a breeding ground for mold and pests.  

The soil in Detroit is high in clay. Combine this with the area’s 34 inches of rain and 33 inches of snow, and is likely your crawl space is damp almost year-round. Located on the Detroit River, one of four major straits that connect to the Great Lakes, the water table is often very high. This means it’s easy to see why the team at Foundation Systems of Michigan has lots of experience repairing crawl spaces in Detroit and across the state.  

For more than 15 years, our team has worked to develop products and procedures that work best in the unique soil of Detroit. Homeowners trust us because of our thousands of positive online reviews and our award-winning service. Schedule your free inspection. We are ready to assist you.

Crawl Space Problem Signs in Detroit

Your Detroit crawl space may contain plumbing and HVAC ducts, but it may also harbor other sinister things, like mold and harmful pests. This is why we don’t suggest you venture into your crawl space alone. If you suspect problem signs in the living areas of your home, like musty odors, increased pests, high energy bills, and increased humidity, it’s best to get a free, no-obligation inspection. During the assessment, your inspector will look for signs of mold, wood rot, condensation, or damaged vapor barrier, and of course, standing water.  

What are the Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Detroit?

Since your crawl space is constructed so close to the ground, environmental factors like soil type and weather play a big part in the health of this space. Since many of the homes in Detroit are older, they were most likely built with open vents. The original idea was that open vents allowed air to flow in and out of the crawl space freely. We now know that isn’t the case. Humid air enters the crawl space where it is trapped and leads to mold and wood rot. These open vents also allow rainwater and water created by snow melt to easily enter. Thanks to the stack effect, the air in the crawl space travels upwards, bringing with it musty, moldy smells and mold spores.
