Crawl Space Solutions

Protect Your Foundation from Water Damage

There are three general types of foundations for residential homes. Slab foundations, basement foundations, and crawl space foundations, including pier and beam. Ram Jack offers foundation repair services for nearly any type of foundation including homes built with a crawl space.


A damp, musty, and wet crawl space can lead to a variety of problems inside and outside of your home. Poor drainage around a home is a prime culprit that can lead to problems in your crawlspace. Your crawl space should be dry, free of standing water, and properly ventilated. Clogged gutters, no gutters, slope of yard, and erosion can lead to water that settles around your foundation. This water can ultimately end up in your crawlspace. Excessive moisture in a crawl space can lead to mold, mildew, water damage, and actually compromise the air quality inside your home.

Ram Jack offers crawl space solutions to prevent excess moisture and remove standing water. Correcting excessive moisture problems prevents wood rot, mold growth, and improves the air quality inside your home.


Pier and beam foundations are often used in homes with crawl spaces. These foundations consist of piers sunk into the ground with concrete bases, and supporting beams that in turn hold up the joists and flooring of the home. However, over time, pier and beam foundations can deteriorate due to settlement and environmental factors, leading to issues like cracks in drywall, sinking floors, and more.

Ram Jack offers effective solutions for pier and beam settlement, including Crawlspace Helicals, Interior Floor Helicals, Screw Jack Bracket Systems, and Girder and Beam Repair. Our experts assess your home's needs and provide affordable solutions to prevent further damage.


Excessive moisture and standing water in crawl spaces can lead to numerous problems, both inside and outside of your home. Ram Jack's Crawl Space Encapsulation solution uses a combination of moisture barriers, sump pumps, diverters, and drainage systems to prevent moisture buildup, standing water, and mold growth. This system significantly improves indoor air quality and protects against issues such as fungal growth and wood decay.

Crawl Space Encapsulation involves applying a durable polyethylene barrier to walls, floors, and ceilings, effectively sealing off the crawl space from ground moisture and outside air. This encapsulation also offers additional benefits such as pest prevention and potential use as a storage area.


High humidity levels in crawl spaces can lead to various problems, including mold growth, wood decay, and compromised air quality inside your home. Ram Jack addresses this issue by installing proper drainage systems or sump pumps to prevent water buildup. Additionally, our Crawl Space Dehumidifiers play a crucial role in reducing humidity levels below 50%, preventing musty odors and enhancing indoor air quality.

Crawl Space Sump Pumps: Effective Water Removal

Standing water in crawl spaces can result from poor yard drainage or heavy rains, potentially causing wood decay and air quality issues. Ram Jack's solution involves installing sump pumps strategically within the crawl space to collect and remove water, preventing its prolonged presence. A properly installed sump pump not only eliminates standing water but also helps maintain a healthier crawl space environment by reducing humidity levels.

Ram Jack's comprehensive crawl space solutions provide effective protection against water-related foundation damage, ensuring the structural integrity and longevity of your home. Contact our experts to evaluate your specific needs and receive tailored solutions for your crawl space foundation issues.
