Benefits of Having a Crawl Space in San Diego County
Crawl spaces are often used in regions where slab foundations are inoperative, or a basement is either undesirable or too expensive. They also hold up well to shifting soil, which is especially important in San Diego County.
The main advantages of a crawl space home are an increase in air circulation between rooms and convenient access to utilities such as electrical and plumbing lines. Crawl spaces also make repairs and new installations much easier in homes.
Crawl Space Foundation Issues
Typically, the foundation begins to fail in a crawl space due to damage from earthquakes, constantly-shifting soil, and water damage. It can also fail because constantly-shifting soil works against unstable pier support, causing floor joists to sag or fail.
Many homeowners experience crawl space issues during particularly heavy rain seasons. As heavy rain increases outside, the buildup of moisture increases in the crawl space, leading to cracks, foundation gaps, weakened supports, water damage, shifting soil, and other causes of foundation failure.
Signs Of Crawl Space Foundation Issues
- Sinking or sagging floors
- Uneven floors
- Jamming or sticking doors
- Cracks in the stem or perimeter wall
- Plaster cracks
- Bulging stucco or plaster
