Truly Nolen's Moisture Control Solutions in Charleston SC

Moisture issues are a serious problem in the Lowcountry due to our environment’s high humidity and high water table. These conditions when combined with crawl space construction can lead to excess moisture. Damage from water cost $2.5 billion annually in the United States and the average repair cost for a home is $7,000. In addition, mold growth can cause health issues.

High levels of moisture can cause a number of issues including:

  • Insect damage
  • Wood rot
  • Swelling of doors and windows
  • Cupping of floors
