Many homeowners in Killen, Alabama have experience with the hot dry summers, followed by cold, wet winters that happen in the area. What you may not know is that these weather extremes can take its toll on your home. Stable soil is needed to keep your house intact, but the Alabama clay shrinks and expands with the change in the amount of water in it. This fluctuation can cause serious foundation issues.

Crawlspace Repair & Mold Removal
Musty odors and mold growth can cause respiratory issues for your family and are usually caused by excess moisture in your home’s crawlspace. Your living space pulls air up out of the crawlspace, into the rest of your home, so it’s important that that air is clean and dry.
Some causes of wet crawlspaces are:
- Cracks in your foundation
- House settling
- Plumbing leak
- Poor draining
We offer crawlspace encapsulation to reduce the amount of moisture in your crawlspace and protect your home from water damage, wood rot, mold growth and other water-related issues. Drying out your crawlspace is one of the best ways to increase the air quality in your home. If your crawlspace is settling, we can install crawlspace piers, floor joists, and floor supports.
