Rodent Slab

The Ultimate Solution for Persistent Rodent Infestations

Rodent exclusion is a crucial component of every effective crawl space remediation project. However, traditional exclusion methods may only address existing entry points, leaving room for rodents to return and cause further damage. That’s where a rodent slab comes in as the ultimate solution for long-lasting protection against re-occurring infestations.

A rodent slab provides a permanent barrier, preventing rodents from burrowing under the foundation and accessing the crawl space. This innovative solution offers unmatched protection and peace of mind, eliminating the need for repeated remediation projects.

What is a Rodent Slab

A rodent slab is a poured concrete structure that covers the entire crawl space floor, sealing it off from wall to wall. This robust barrier prevents rodents from burrowing underneath the foundation and gaining access to the crawl space. Our meticulous installation process ensures a durable and long-lasting solution that effectively safeguards your home against rodent intrusion.

When is a Rodent Slab Necessary

A rodent slab is recommended for homes facing chronic rodent burrowing issues, particularly in the following scenarios

Older Foundations

Homes with shallow foundation walls are vulnerable to rodent burrowing, making a rodent slab essential for protection.

Soft Soil Conditions

Areas with soft or saturated soil provide ideal conditions for rodents to burrow, necessitating the installation of a rodent slab for prevention.

Mixed Basement-Crawlspace Structures

Houses with both basement and crawl space components often have shallow foundations susceptible to rodent intrusion, making a rodent slab a prudent investment for long-term protection.

Installation Process

Our meticulous installation process involves several key steps

We recently hired Northwest Crawl Space Services to perform a complete remediation of our crawl space which had a rodent infestation. Lior initially came out and did a thorough assessment and explanation of what work needed to be done. He was very detailed in explaining all work that they would do and the subsequent follow up visits and warranty that was included in the price. The following week Robert and his crew came out to perform the work. They were punctual, courteous and extremely professional in every way. They took caution and care to make sure that the inside of our house was properly masked off and protected as they removed the entirety of the contaminated crawl space insulation etc. Robert provided me with detailed pictures of the finished work and as well as pictures of a couple water pipes that had very small leaks, which I greatly appreciated. As promised, Lior came back out two weeks later to inspect all work and make sure that there were no problems. I highly recommend Northwest Crawl Space Services!

Lior and his team were fantastic. They were cheaper than the big name companies and didn't try to upsell me to repairs that didn't need to be done. They took care of the problem quickly and were great with communication and photos of the project as it was being completed. They owner even did a follow up the next day to make sure the job was done correctly. I had a list of questions when the job was done and he already had them all addressed with pictures and videos of everything. They are locally owned and operated which is very important to me. Would highly recommend

NW Crawlspace is an exceptional company. Matan and his team are experts at repairing Crawlspaces and protecting you from rodent and water Intrusion.. Rob and Leonardo and the team take the quality of their work personally. They are going to do it right and come back to check it for you. We needed a total clean out and sump pump system installed.They worked super hard to have it done by Thanksgiving. We feel like we got a bargain after seeing all that was done. I recommend them if you want your crawlspace worked on or inspected. You will be glad you called them.

We had a sump pump fail and ended up with a crawlspace that had at least two feet of standing water. Matan of Northwest Crawlspace Services came out to inspect. After examination, he carefully explained our problem and his proposed solution using easy-to-understand, non-technical language, and then gave us a firm price quote. His professionalism made us feel very much at ease and gave us assurance that we were in good hands. The very next day, a worker was sent to pump the water out of the crawlspace so that work could begin. After the water was gone, a crew of three workers was dispatched to begin the work. Before doing anything, they took great care to install plastic sheeting to protect all of the walls and floors leading up to the crawl space access door. The crew worked diligently throughout the day and completed most of the work. Afterwards, they thoroughly cleaned up, leaving little sign that they had even been there. The following day, they came back to finish the work and replace some duct work that had been damaged by the flooding. A little later, a separate person (presumably a supervisor) came by to inspect the job. We are thoroughly satisfied by the work of Northwest Crawlspace Services and would highly recommend them to other homeowners.

Frequently asked questions

How Does a Rodent Slab Prevent Rodent Infestation?

A rodent slab serves as a solid barrier that covers the entire crawl space floor, sealing it off from wall to wall. By eliminating access points and preventing rodents from burrowing under the foundation, the slab effectively blocks their entry into the crawl space. Additionally, the installation process includes reinforcement with metal rebar structures, ensuring durability and resistance to rodent intrusion.

Our team strives to minimize disruption during the installation process of a rodent slab. While some excavation may be necessary to prepare the crawl space for installation, we take care to complete the work efficiently and with minimal disturbance to your property. Our goal is to provide a seamless installation experience while delivering long-term protection against rodent infestation.

The duration of rodent slab installation varies depending on various factors, including the size of the crawl space, the condition of the soil, and any additional preparations required. Typically, the installation process can take several days to complete, from ground preparation and reinforcement to concrete pouring and curing. Our team will provide you with a detailed timeline and keep you informed throughout the installation process to ensure minimal disruption to your routine.

The installation of a rodent slab typically requires a crawl space clearance of at least 22 inches. This clearance ensures there is sufficient space to accommodate the installation process and the depth of the slab effectively. However, if the clearance in your crawl space is insufficient, additional dig-out and foundation modifications may be necessary before the slab can be installed. Our experienced team will assess your crawl space thoroughly to determine if any modifications are required to proceed with the installation of the rodent slab efficiently and effectively.
