With all this rain in NC, it’s a good time to head to your crawl space and check for moisture. If you see white salt deposits (efflorescence) and damp corners like in this photo, it means your foundation has been cyclically wet and dry. Direct water penetration damages the foundation, the wood structure, and creates an undesirable environment in the living areas that encourages insect and or/fungal growth such as mold/mildew. Call us at 919-921-8400 or book an inspection online and we can help you determine the weather-tightness of your home.
