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.
Crawl spaces have a bad reputation —as cramped, damp, dirty spaces that harbor bad-smelling mold, insects and other pests. The CleanSpace system of crawl space repair is designed to turn this ugly area into an asset —a part of your house you can actually be proud of. Our trained technicians make this transformation possible by combining waterproofing techniques with high-performance insulation, durable moisture barriers and effective air-sealing strategies.

"A+ Team at Tarheel Basement! Very professional, timely, and efficient..."
Tar Heel Basement systems came to house to check on an item that was found during the property inspection portion of the sale of my house. The property inspection found efflorescence on the brick in the crawl space of my house. Efflorescence is a dehydration of the brick that produces a salt like substance on the surface of the brick.Trevor, salesman, was extremely polite. I thanked him and would recommend them to do sealed basement systems. They were professional, punctual and appeared to be knowledgeable of all basement issues.

After interviewing two other companies about our basement leaking. Tar Heel was the best with information, how to fix it, as well as price. Adam, Edward and Chris showed up on a Friday morning to fix our leak. I thought it would take all day, but they were focused on the job at hand and finished just after lunch. They were all so courteous and friendly (and funny). Thanks for making what could be a horribly experience into a pleasurable one. I would recommend Tar Heel anytime (especially Adam, Edward and Chris!!)

Matt Johnson did a great job explaining what he was doing and explained to me the advantage of signing up for the 3 and 5 year plans. I chose the 3 year plan because of my age 75. We might have to move due to being unable to do things for ourselves. He is to have you email me next year about my appointment because we travel a lot.

Comment: We had a contractor come out and install new insulation and a vapor barrier in our crawl space. We believe it was done incorrectly and we now have mold issues in the addition on the house. You were recommended from our friend Leonard to install a new system. We would like for you to come out as soon as possible as we have a newborn baby who has been in the hospital and we don't want mold to be an issue in our home.

I need a diagnosis of the problem and an estimate on a proper solution and necessary repairs. Please call me if someone from your company would be available in the next few days to meet me and my realtor at the property (tomorrow or early next week) to assist. I'd also appreciate knowing the cost for having someone come out and take a look. Thank you!!
