At Regional Foundation & Crawl Space Repair, our crawl space structural repair service is designed to identify and remedy critical crawl space issues, preserving the longevity and safety of your home.

What Causes Crawl Space Structural Issues?

While crawl spaces provide easy access to utilities such as plumbing, electrical wiring, and HVAC systems, they are prone to structural issues.  

One of the primary causes of crawl space structural issues is moisture. When water seeps into the crawl space, it can cause the wooden beams and joists to rot, warp, and decay over time. This can weaken the structural integrity of the entire foundation, leading to sagging floors, cracks in the walls, and other significant problems.

Another common cause of crawl space structural issues is soil settlement. Over time, the soil underneath the foundation can shift and settle, creating voids that can cause crawl space support posts to become non-vertical. 

Poor construction practices can also contribute to crawl space structural issues. If the foundation is not properly designed, constructed, or supported, it can lead to structural problems. This can include an insufficient number of support posts or beams and joists that are too small to support the weight of the structure above.

Other factors that can cause crawl space structural issues include plumbing leaks, high humidity levels, and pest infestations. Leaky plumbing and high humidity contribute to moisture buildup, which can cause wood rot, mold growth, and other problems that can weaken the structural integrity of the crawl space. Humidity also attracts pests.

Identifying Crawl Space Issues

Sagging floors

One of the most common signs of crawl space structural issues is sagging or uneven floors. If you notice that your floors are uneven or sloping, it could indicate that your crawl space is experiencing structural problems that are affecting the foundation of your home. This could be due to a variety of factors, including soil settlement, water damage, or inadequate support beams.

Cracks in interior walls

Another common sign of crawl space structural issues is cracks in the walls of your home. If left unchecked, these cracks can lead to more significant structural damage, which can be expensive to repair.

Doors and windows that stick or won't close properly

If the wooden support structures in the crawl space are damaged or compromised in any way, the foundation of the house may become unstable, leading to doors and windows that stick or won’t close properly

Visible deterioration of posts, beams, or joists

Obviously, visible deterioration in any of the crawl space support structures is a sign of a structural problem.


Moisture in the crawl space is another common issue that can lead to structural problems. So, if you notice moisture in your home’s crawl space, it could mean there’s a structural issue somewhere that needs addressing. As noted above, crawl space moisture can cause wood rot, mold growth, and other issues that can compromise the strength of your home’s foundation.

Mold or Mildew

If you see any signs of mold or mildew, it could be due to excess moisture in the crawl space, which can lead to rot, decay, and structural damage.

Foul Odors

If you notice a musty, damp, or foul odor in your home, it could indicate a problem with your crawl space. Mold, mildew, and pests can cause unpleasant odors, which can signal structural issues.

Insects and other pests

Pest infestations are another common sign of crawl space structural issues. If you notice an increase in pests such as ants, termites, or rodents in your home, it could be a sign that there is damage to your crawl space that is allowing them to enter your home.

Standing Water

Puddles or standing water in your crawl space can be a sign of poor drainage or a leaky foundation. This can cause damage to the structural supports in the crawl space.

High utility bills

If your energy bills have suddenly increased, it could be due to moisture in your crawl space. The added strain on your HVAC system can cause it to work harder, leading to higher energy costs.

  • If you notice any of these signs, it is important to have your crawl space inspected by a professional. Early detection of crawl space structural issues can help prevent further damage to your home and save you money in the long run. Our technicians are skilled in diagnosing these problems, determining their source, and providing thorough assessments of your crawl space’s condition.

How to Help Prevent Crawl Space Structural Problems

One of the most critical steps in preventing crawl space structural problems is to keep moisture out. Moisture buildup can lead to mold growth, wood rot, and structural damage. An excess of moisture in the crawl space can also create a damp environment that attracts pests such as rodents and insects. Moisture can enter the crawl space through various sources, including leaks in plumbing or HVAC systems, condensation, and groundwater infiltration.

To prevent moisture buildup, homeowners should install a vapor barrier to prevent moisture from seeping through the walls and floors of the crawl space. A moisture barrier is typically made of plastic sheeting.

Another way to prevent crawl space structural problems is to address any plumbing or HVAC leaks promptly. A leak in the plumbing or HVAC system can lead to water buildup in the crawl space, which can create an environment that is conducive to mold growth and wood rot. Homeowners should regularly inspect their plumbing and HVAC systems for leaks.

Regular inspections of the crawl space are also essential in preventing structural problems. Homeowners should inspect the crawl space for signs of moisture, mold growth, wood rot, and pest infestations. If any of these issues are detected, they should be addressed promptly to prevent further damage.
