Conditioned Crawlspace

Crawlspace Doctor of Northwest Georgia creates conditioned Crawlspaces in Cobb County, Fulton County, DeKalb County, Gwinnett County and the cities of Atlanta, Marietta, Alpharetta, Roswell and Sandy Springs.

In the early 1950s crawl space foundation vents were introduced to eliminate humidity in crawlspaces. Over time contractors and inspectors realized the vents that were installed to remove humidity in fact helped to increase the humidity level in most crawlspaces. They allow hot humid air in the summer months to enter the cool environment of a crawlspace. The humid air would condense and create higher humidity levels under your home.

This would eventually lead to mold and fungus growth. Now building codes are changing to allow builders to construct conditioned crawlspaces without crawl space foundation vents. Conditioning the crawl space is the practice of removing all components that cause moisture. ie: leaking pipes, broken dryer vents, ground water entering through the foundation, etc. A proper vapor barrier needs to be installed to prevent moisture from evaporating from the soil into the home.

After the clean space has been created the air in the crawlspace can be conditioned by one of several different ways depending on the crawlspaces individual situation. All components need to be in place or the desired results will not be achieved. Crawlspace Doctor has developed systems to properly condition crawlspaces.

Georgia North West Customer Testimonials

We consulted with several different companies when our crawlspace needed repair. Crawlspace Doctor was the one to go with, hands down. The cost, the value, the service, the friendliness of the staff. You won't find a better combination anywhere else. They've even come back several times to make sure everything is working properly, free of charge!

I hired Richard to clean up and dry out a very nasty crawlspace after getting 3 other proposals. My decision was based mostly on reviews on Kudzu. Richard put me in touch with another firm to clean up the mold that my procrastination had allowed to get out of control, then he carried out his proposal, including bringing in another company to spray foam insulation on the crawlspace walls and adjacent wood structure. Then the real complications began. My termite company said the foam prevented them from doing a valid inspection. Worse, several months later I was selling the house and needed a termite letter for closing. Richard and I had no luck getting the foam-spraying company to remove the foam from the areas needed for inspection, so he came back and devoted 2 man-days of effort in removing that foam -- at no charge to me. Richard is a man of the highest integrity. Combine that with his knowledge, dependability, and work ethic, and I give him my highest possible recommendation.

Richard Ossie, co-owner, was a pleasure to work with. Prompt response to initial phone call, immediate free consultation appointment, complete and thorough explanation of problems with digital photos, complete and thorough explanation of recommended remedy. I met with three other companies as well and went through the same process. Richard's pricing was competitive and the attention to detail was superior. The work was done promptly and thoroughly when scheduled. Richard was always responsive by phone or in person when we had questions and followed up in person after completion of the job to make sure we were satisfied.
