Welcome to Your Crawl Space Guys, where we provide top-quality crawl space solutions to our clients in Oregon and Washington. In this page, we will be focusing on crawl space dig outs, and answering some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this process.
FAQ about Dig Outs:
What is a Dig Out?
A crawl space dig-out is a process where we excavate the soil beneath your home’s foundation, in order to create a deeper and more functional crawl space. This process involves removing the existing soil, installing new concrete piers and support posts.
Does my home need a dig out?
If your crawl space is less than 18 inches in height, then a crawl space dig-out may be necessary. A shallow crawl space can lead to a number of issues, such as inadequate ventilation, moisture problems, and difficulty accessing and maintaining plumbing and electrical systems. Oregon building code states that the minimum depth for a crawl space is 18” between the bottom of all floor joists and the crawl space floor. Additionally, 12” spacing is required between the bottom of all support beams and the crawl space floor.
How expensive is an average dig-out in Oregon and Washington?
The cost of a crawl space dig-out can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the size of your home, the condition of your existing crawl space, and the complexity of the project. However, on average, a crawl space dig-out can cost anywhere from $10,000 to $35,000.
What are the dangers of not digging out my crawl space to the current building code specifications?
If your crawl space is not up to the current code, it can lead to a number of serious problems, such as poor indoor air quality, mold growth, and even structural damage to your home. Additionally, if you are looking to sell your home, an outdated crawl space can decrease its value and make it more difficult to sell.
The good news!
The good news is that by investing in a crawl space dig-out, you can significantly improve the value and functionality of your home. A deeper crawl space can provide better ventilation and moisture control, as well as easier access to your plumbing and electrical systems. Additionally, by bringing your crawl space up to code, you can ensure that your home is safe, healthy, and structurally sound.
