You’ve come to the right place for foundation inspections and repair! We offer free foundation repair quotes in the Hampton Roads area. Most people don’t realize that the foundation of their home is where everything begins. Every aspect of your home depends upon a well-built, dry foundation. Whatever the issue may be, we have the services, systems and experience that you need to find the best most cost effective solution to your foundation problem.
Because of high ambient humidity and high ground water conditions in Hampton Roads your home is constantly subjected to moisture related problems and even indoor air quality issues.
Once dry rot or mold begins to grow it can affect everything above the foundation. This can impact the the structural integrity of your home resulting in costly repairs. Serious health problems may also occur if your foundation is not protected correctly from mold, mildew, and fungus. We offer state of the art foundation repair systems. We inspect wood joists and beams with a state of the art pin moisture meter to see if any repair is required. In most cases rotted wood can be easily replaced without additional expensive structural members required. We DO NOT use the claw of a hammer and chop away the wood and recommend it be replaced. If wood starts to soften 1/4 inch at the edges, it does not need to be replaced. This small area of softening will not compromise the structural integrity of the wood. It usually has to be about 1/2 inch or more to be deemed needing replacement. We use aluminum I Beams to support the structure during the repair process. We have even developed structural skeleton support boxes to shore up areas of soft sub floor. This is a fraction of the cost of sub floor replacement.
We will explain our vapor barrier / encapsulation process and how it will protect your home.
This will enhance the value of your home and avoid additional inspection fees when you sell it and it can provide more storage space. But most importantly you will wind up with a more healthy living environment
Instead of a sales pitch, you receive a documented itemized estimate, based on the problem we found AND what's causing the problem, so that we can fix the root of the issue and you can be free of the problem!

I called because I had the smell of mold in my house and standing water in my crawl space. Gilbert and Son came out and did a free estimste. After I booked the job, they were on time professional, and cleaned up after themselves. The work and price was spot on. I highly recommend this company to anyone in need of mold or crawl space work.
We had problems in our crawl space, we had mold and other problems, I called Gilbert & Sons, Mike came over and gave me an estimate, his estimate is so much better than the other company. Mike is very honest and his employees were very polite, respectful, on time and most importantly, they did an excellent job.I highly recommend this company. They deserve 10 stars.
Gilbert and Son was the only company that was honest and told me I didn’t have a moisture problem. Pricing was much better than expected for the work performed. We had them install 33 tons of sand under our house because the builder did not back fill it like they should have. I figured I would have sand all over my yard and wife’s flowers, but that wasn’t the case. Super neat and clean install. Mike didn’t try and scare us into an encapsulation or work not needed like the other companies. Give these guys a call you won’t be disappointed.
My family member's have a genetic ultra sensitivity to mold, and Mike' diligence has kept us from having to move out. We are whole and thriving now, our home is safe, and our crawlspace is healthy (without encapsulation). Talk to Mike today. He will help you with your issue and not take advantage of your situation.
