Rumson is one of the earliest settlements along the Jersey Shore; the area was first settled by the English way back in 1665. Local legend says, the area got its name when the English settlers traded rum to the Native Americans in exchange for land.
By the 19th Century, the real estate along the shores of the Shrewsbury and Navesink Rivers were lined with sprawling estates, serving as a summer get-away for the elite bankers and wealthy industrialists of New York.
Today, Rumson is an upscale suburb, with many stately, historic homes and buildings. However, the town’s location between the rivers and the Atlantic Ocean can cause issues with moisture, in a home’s crawlspace, basement, or attic. This is especially true with a historic home. If you live in Rumson, there are a few things you should know about maintaining your home.
Unfortunately, your home’s crawlspace is prime territory for mold growth. Also, moisture collecting underneath your home can cause damage to the foundation. Our crawlspace services can identify issues, and provide the solutions.
For example, installing a vapor barrier or encapsulating the crawlspace can protect your home from excess moisture, humidity, and mold growth. If you need Rumson crawlspace services, Jersey Shore Crawlspace Enhancement has you covered.

Basements in Rumson have similar issues to crawlspaces; the humidity and moisture that can build up in a basement are a breeding ground for mold and other problems. In order to use your basement as a laundry room, a rec room, or even for storage, it needs to be clean and dry.
Your basement may need to be evaluated for a drainage system, or even for mold removal. A dehumidifier and additional insulation could not only improve your basement, but the rest of your house too. Our basement services can help!

While keeping what’s under the house clean and dry is critical, maintaining your roof and attic is very important too. A leaky roof will drip down into your attic, causing the perfect conditions for mold growth. Any attic mold must be treated and removed, to ensure the health of everyone in your home.
Old, moldy attic insulation must also be removed, and replaced with clean, modern insulation. This will not only help to keep you warm in the winter, but it will also lower your energy costs. Our attic services can help maintain your home!
