WHY DO HARDWOOD FLOORS CRACK OR CUP?

In the summer months when moisture is very high, wood expands. During winter months, wood moisture goes down and wood contracts.  Through the years your floors are always expanding and contracting depending on the weather. This will cause floors to crack and/or buckle over time.

 

Solution
We seal your crawl space and install a dehumidifier, keeping the wood moisture — about 12% year round. No more expanding and contracting — no more cracking or cupping floors.

  • Stops cracking floors

  • Keeps floors warm in winter

  • No more high moisture

  • Improves energy bills

  • Stops mold

  • Keeps the air clean in your home

  • Insulates foundation

 

This is the single most important step you can take to cut down your heating and cooling bill. This new material was developed just for crawl spaces and basement walls. This is insulation plus vapor barrier that seals 96% of air and moisture out. We are amazed at the difference it has made in the homes where this has been installed.
