What Is a Crawl Space?

If you have a crawl space foundation, the crawl space is the area under your home. A crawl space foundation raises a house from 1.5 to 3 feet off the ground, creating a space with just enough room to crawl but not stand up. The structures in a crawl space include pier blocks, support piers, girders/beams, and floor joists.

 

Crawl space foundations were very popular before the 1960s. Homeowners like crawl space foundations because they offer easy access to the home’s plumbing and wiring and are easy to repair. While crawl space foundations are still being built, slab-on-grade foundations are more popular today.

Why Can’t I Just Fix My Crawl Space Myself?

We get it. Nobody likes spending money on a foundation repair. However, we don’t recommend homeowners try DIY crawl space repair for the following reasons:

 
  • It’s a lot of work for one person. When we repair a crawl space, we use a crew with years of experience repairing crawl spaces.
  • If you’re not experienced fixing crawl spaces, you could perform the repair incorrectly. 
  • Crawling around underneath your house isn’t very fun and can even be dangerous. Crawl spaces often contain mold, spiders, snakes, and sharp items. They could even contain hazardous rodent droppings. Never enter a crawl space without protective gear, including a respirator.
 

When you hire a professional to repair your home’s crawl space, you get an experienced crew and a warranty on the repair. Our crawl space repairs come with a lifetime transferable warranty on both the material and labor.
