Have you looked in your crawlspace lately?

It is not something we think about, but your crawl space can have a major impact on the health of your home. If you have a damp, moldy crawl space or you have issues with standing water and poor drainage, the air quality in your home can be severely compromised.

Remember, there is very little separating your first floor living areas from your crawl space. Much of the air circulating in your home comes from your crawl space and a damp, musty crawlspace is not normal. Are you experiencing any of the following?

  • Mold
  • Cracks
  • Bouncy floors
  • Condensation
  • Sagging floors
  • Uneven floors
  • Wood-eating pests
  • Rodent droppings
  • Higher energy bills
  • Musty odor in the home
  • Moisture in the crawl space
  • Allergies and respiratory problems
  • Increased Bugs and Insects in the home
  • Wood rot on the crawl space’s wood structures
  • Problems opening and closing doors and windows
  • Increased humidity inside your home’s living area

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Vapor Barriers

Crawl space encapsulation involves sealing off a building's crawl space to protect it from moisture, water damage, and other environmental factors. A key component of this process is the installation of a vapor barrier, typically made of heavy-duty plastic sheeting, that acts as a barrier between the soil and the crawl space. The purpose of the vapor barrier is to prevent water vapor, which is naturally present in the soil, from entering the crawl space and causing damage to the building's structure and insulation. By effectively controlling the crawl space environment, encapsulation and the use of vapor barriers can help to improve indoor air quality, increase energy efficiency, and extend the life of a building's foundation, insulation, and mechanical systems.


Post and Beam

As older homes settle, shift and breath throughout their life, the individual foundation supports can move at slightly different rates. Extreme moisture variations in the soils can also cause the supports to heave or settle. Shifting soils can result in minor problems or result in a complete failure of the entire support mechanism. These changes can cause drywall cracking, sinking or heaving floors, cracked floor tiles cracked fireplace hearths and more.

Straight Line Construction has a variety of ways to repair out of date or failing supports. Some circumstances are easily corrected by installing simple posts and other problems may require a new support beam and base.Call Straight Line Construction today for an on-site evaluation or fill out the form on this site.

About Ram Jack

Ram Jack is a family-owned business that began operations in 1968, in Ada, OK, where we currently source our piers and brackets. Back then, concrete piering was the original repair method used simply because it was the only technology available at the time. Over time, it became evident that concrete piers did not provide long-term stabilization of foundations and only provided a short-term warranty period. To guarantee the highest grade of customer satisfaction, a greater solution needed to be found.

The Ram Jack owners embarked on a research program to develop a foundation repair system to stand the test of time. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office first issued a patent to Ram Jack for its foundation repair system in 1985. Over the next few years, additional refinements and patents have followed, resulting in the strongest patented system in the industry. Ram Jack driven pilings are ICC-ES recognized (International Construction Code—Evaluation Services). Ram Jack is one of only two ICC-ES recognized foundation repair companies in the industry. Ram Jack’s products meet or exceed code requirements set down by ICC-ES for both commercial and residential properties.
