Underneath the kitchen the subfloor was completely rotted and in need of replacement.
Completely rotted and moldy subfloors are dangerous and a health hazard.
Most of the joists were rotted or breaking apart and needed to be replaced to support the subfloor on top.
Entire areas needed to be replaced due to the moisture in the crawl space rotting the wood.
Rebecca C. of Fort Valley, GA had a problem with her crawl space. She had lived in her home for 25 years, every time it rained, she noticed musty odors. Concerned about her health, and the unlevel floors in the kitchen, she reached out to some neighbors to ask their opinion on what she should do.
She was referred to Lowcountry Basement Systems for a free inspection of her crawl space. The inspector noted rotted areas of the subfloor as well as moldy floor joists and beams. The rotten wood first had to be replaced and the Lowcountry Basement Systems team did just that.
