Crawl Space Repair Contractors in Virginia
Although, in some states, the building code still requires that crawl spaces be vented, Virginia has made a significant change to their building code for crawl space ventilation. According to the change, crawl space ventilation openings are not required where exposed earth is covered with a continuous vapor retarder or barrier.
Your home is a system, and every part of that system plays a role that affects the rest of the structure. A dirt, vented or unconditioned concrete crawl space under your Virginia home is a very bad idea. The earth has very high humidity in the soil. The underground water vapor moves easily into the crawl space and upwards into your house environment. If your crawl space begins to rot, grow mold, or experience structural problems, this will extend to every part of your home. In addition, A home with a dirt crawl space costs more to heat or cool and can raises your heating and cooling cost 15% (to 25%) every month. So, fixing your crawl space is one home repair you can't afford not to make.
Fortunately, there is an ultimate solution to dirt crawl spaces - The CleanSpace System - developed by Basement Systems, the world leader in dry basement and crawl space technology. The CleanSpace Encapsulation System completely stops moisture penetration. It's also tough enough for you to crawl on it and to use your crawl space for storage without worry of putting holes or tears in the liner.
Whether you live in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Arlington, Richmond or Newport News, we have our Virginia crawl space contractors available to install the CleanSpace system in your neighborhood. Call toll free at 1-800-638-7048 or contact us online and you are on your way to a dry, energy-efficient crawl space - and a home that is less expensive, more comfortable, and healthier to live in.

Our trained technicians make this transformation possible by combining waterproofing techniques with high-performance insulation, durable moisture barriers and effective air-sealing strategies.

Project Location: Westfall Pl, Falls Church, VA 22042
Comment: I have a dirt crawlspace.
The square footage of the total space is approx 1200. However, the crawlspace is divided - half of it is more or less accessible, a quarter is approx 2.5' tall and another quarter is virtually non-accessible and not insulated.
It also has some water in it, although I have a sump pump. The floor is uneven and this causes some water accumulation on the opposite side of the sump pump, so maybe another pump has to be installed.
I would also like encapsulate my crawlspace. The inaccessible part (has an opening of the size of a brick) could be filled by foam or other insulation completely

Comment: Crawl space: Insulation is falling from ceiling. Would like estimate for insulating crawl space walls perhaps instead of old fiberglass. No real water problems, but furnace is in crawl space so it needs to be neater looking for access.

Comment: I just recently purchased a home. I was aware that this home was old and need repairs. Hell it even said it on the sign out side for sale "fix me up". I looked around in the crawl space and noticed sagging insulation, rotted joist & water build up in areas. Please let me know if we can fix this problem.
