Foundation Experts in Charlottesville

The greater Charlottesville area including Louisa, Palmyra, and Scottsville experience accelerated humidity in the summers, along with rain year-round. Without the proper moisture and water control, your crawl space or basement can be vulnerable to mold, mildew, and wood rot. As these problems persist, you may notice unpleasant smells or outside temperatures seep into interior of your home. Some homeowners even suffer from higher energy bills as the problems get worse.  

Soil also has a larger impact on your home’s structure than you think. Your corner of North Central Virginia is built on a silty loam top layer of soil, with silty clay subsoil. Soils heavy in silt and clay can be detrimental to your home. As they soak up and retain water from frequent rain, these soils expand and bear hydrostatic pressure. For many homeowners, the damage shows itself through sagging floors, leaks, cracks, wall bowing, or even wall separation. 

Charlottesville is rich in history and charm, but the crack or slope in your home isn’t part of it. If not addressed, these problems can negatively impact your health and your home’s structure. As local experts in basements, waterproofing, and crawl spaces, JES is your trusted partner in foundation repair. We can provide the unique and permanent solution you need to enjoy your home and even increase property value.
