What Causes Wood Rot?


Because more than 50% of the air in your home comes up through your crawl space, keeping it clean and dry is vital to the overall health of you and your family. But there’s another, equally sinister reason to take a look at what’s going on under your home: structural damage.

If too much moisture gets into your crawl space, it will eventually take a toll on the wooden structures that support your entire home. These floor joists and beams will become saturated over time, losing their structural integrity and putting your entire home at risk of collapse. If you suspect structural damage has taken hold of your crawl space, don’t wait. Call our team in Virginia Beach about our wood rot and crawl space moisture repair options.

Fixing Rotten Wooden Structures in Homes


When you need to repair rotten wood in a crawl space, the word “repair” can be misleading. Once wood rot has set in, your best chance of properly repairing a structure is to completely replace all the affected areas with new, undamaged wood.

Based in Virginia Beach, our wood rot and crawl space moisture repair specialists will get into your crawl space, assess the damage, and remove all traces of mold and rot. Then, we’ll install the replacement wood and seal your crawl space to ensure the problem doesn’t resurface.
