Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Lansing, MI

A crawl space is handy for housing home essentials like HVAC ducts, plumbing, and wiring, but they are infamous for many problems. Sagging floors or pungent odors that never go away are telltale signs that there is something wrong with the crawl space under your Lansing, MI, home. A problematic crawl space harms your home’s structural integrity and your family’s health, and needs to be fixed sooner rather than later. 

Foundation Systems of Michigan has been helping homeowners in Lansing and throughout Michigan repair and encapsulate their crawl spaces for 15 years.

Crawl Space Problem Signs in Lansing

Most crawl spaces are only up to three feet high, so they can be tough to squeeze into, and they often have nasty conditions you wouldn’t want to expose yourself to. That is why we do not recommend that you go into your Lansing crawl space to check for problems on your own. It is best to leave that to one of our inspectors who is properly equipped to handle difficult crawl space conditions. Your FSM inspector will check for leaking water, excessive humidity, ineffective vapor barriers, wet insulation, pests, mold, and wood rot. Throughout the rest of your home, though, you can keep an eye out for increased pest activity, mold growth, unpleasant odors, and uneven floors.

What are the Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Lansing?

Humidity is the number one cause of crawl space issues, and the way your Lansing home was built plays a significant role in how humidity impacts your house. Open crawl space vents have been required by building codes for many years; they were intended to create better airflow to minimize moisture and humidity issues. However, humid air and water only become trapped in the crawl space because of the vents. Lansing has a humid continental climate and receives 33 inches of rain and 46 inches of snow annually, so all this humidity and precipitation can easily inundate the crawl space. The stack effect is also worsened and allows mold spores and other toxins to rise into your living space and circulate in the air. 

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair Solutions in Lansing

The repair and encapsulation solutions your Lansing crawl space needs depends on various factors like the unique challenges it faces and the extent of any damage. Your FSM inspector may recommend crawl space support posts, interior drains, sump pumps, thermal insulation, encapsulation with vapor barriers and vent covers, and dehumidifiers. All these products are completely customizable, protected by long-lasting warranties, and made in the United States. 

Why Choose Foundation Systems of Michigan

If your Lansing home has a crawl space, being aware of its condition is important, as it can significantly impact the rest of your home. Problems like mold and nasty smells in your crawl space won’t stay there, and your family could be breathing in unhealthy air. With help from FSM, your crawl space can be transformed into a cleaner, healthier, usable area. 

For the last 15 years, homeowners throughout Lansing and surrounding areas have trusted our team their crawl space repairs. Many of these satisfied customers also have given us excellent reviews, and our service and solutions have been nationally recognized by numerous awards such as from Angi and Home Advisor.

Excellent job! Great team! Kyle explained in detail what needed to be done without trying to sell me more than what I needed. The crew that came in to do the job were courteous, respectful of my home. They came in, got to work and knew what needed to be done. If I had questions, they answered them. They were in pretty tight quarters (all 3) and they made the best of it. Thank you so much for a job well done!! I would give them a 15!!! If you need foundation, basement waterproofing, etc., FMR is the place to call.

I had Ben H. come out and evaluate some cracks and other issues I've been noticing with my house. He was on time and even came out on a Saturday. He was easy to talk to and very professional. The company was quick and I feel extremely honest in their assessment.

We had issues with the flooring in our old home built in the 1890s. Floors so unleveled, from the years I f dampness and old wood!! We couldn’t put flooring down that it needed so desperately. The difference was amazing!! No soft spots and floors were amazingly level again!! Didn’t know how much difference this would would make and we are finally ready to have our new wood floors put down!! Thanks to the great workers to get under our very small area under house to accomplish this feat!! Thanks to Miguel A, Mateo O, Demon B as well as the electrical team Josh W and Caleb T!! Great work guys!! Thanks!!

I really appreciated the service the company provided. Micheal B was extremely professional and went above and beyond to ensure he could meet at a time that worked best for my family when there was a scheduling conflict. This company will get straight to the point while providing much needed information about the home. Very thankful they came and pointed out a few other issues they noticed about the home that we might want another opinion on since it something they don’t do. I’ve always hated how many companies will pressure you to decide in the moment, but this company wanted you to take time to make the financial decision. Thank you for coming out to the house and we can’t wait to get everything done.

Kyle was extremely professional and helpful. His advice was invaluable because we didn’t know where to begin. We will likely be using this business after we complete a few preparatory steps he recommended.

Thank you Mark Dunbar for being honest! I would highly recommend you and your company. It's rare to find someone who's is honest these days. After Mark's inspection he determined that I had a gray water plumbing leak and a crawl space cover leaking but no need for his services. Which is amazing compared to the competition Ayers Basement that tried to sell 57K worth of service.Mark won't sell you what you don't need I highly recommend you ask for him by name. I will be contacting Mark for some under pin foundation work in the spring.Thank you for your honesty!Andre

Today I had the pleasure of meeting Kyle M. Who did an assessment of our water drainage problems. It was a great relief to have a person who was so responsive, knowledgeable, and patient, unlike others I have dealt with recently. His forthrightness, and good communication skills without being pushy was much appreciated. Our dog gave him the paws up and kisses as well, adding to the good vibes. I look forward to getting the project done feeling confident that the work will be satisfactorily.

I am just getting started on my journey with FSM. So far I am very impressed! I called yesterday and was able to get an appointment this morning! Super quick response!Kyle M. And Mike B. came to do the initial inspection. They were on time which I appreciate. Both very friendly and knowledgeable. I didn't know what to expect and was a little nervous that they would be "pushy" salesman. Not the case at all! In fact completely opposite.. They took the time to do a thorough inspection, understand my concerns, and answer my questions. Even answered questions when I had to "phone a friend." :)They provided a thorough explanation of what the issues are and even had me feeling like an expert at one point! Both of them were very honest and even though I just met them the entire time I was at ease talking with them.Kyle M. almost got stuck in the well closet (I shut the door on him LOL) during the inspection, but he didn't skip a beat and it made for a good laugh!Mike B. offered some additional expert advice after noticing icicles above my AC unit during inspection around the outside of my home. Extra kudos to him for helping me cover it up!!Kyle M. was very patient with me during the entire process. He provided a good explanation of my options and was supportive of whatever decision I made. He was not "pushy" at all. He also told me what to expect throughout the process.Kyle M. and Mike B. make a great team! FSM is lucky to have them as frontline staff meeting with customers. They made my day!I look forward to the next steps in my journey with FSM! I like the fact that Kyle M. and Mike B. are familiar with all staff involved with the project. I also know Kyle M. will be in touch throughout to make sure things go smoothly.

FSM was outstanding to work with! Ben was super informative, honest with us and we felt confident we made the right decision to schedule with FSM to have our Crawl Space encapsulated. The crew showed up to do the dirty work with so much enthusiasm! A great bunch and they did a fantastic job. You would not even have known they were here aside from the major transformation of the Crawl Space. Not a stitch of mess left behind. We had tons of questions during the estimate with Ben and during the installation and they all were very knowledgeable and happy to help. The change through out our home AMAZING! I wished we would have done it sooner!! THANK YOU FSM!
