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.

Indiana West Central Customer Testimonials

We are very pleased with the job that was completed for our crawlspace. Everything was handled in a courteous, professional manner. All of the work on the proposal was completed as stated. We would highly recommend The Crawlspace Doctor to anyone. Thank you for everything!

We had a small addition with a crawlspace added to our house two years ago. The crawlspace gets very cold in the winter and I wanted someone to tell me what could be done to keep it warmer. Mr. Chris Crow, who gave me the estimate and also performed the work, did an excellent job. He explained what he thought the problem was, gave me several options and then did the work and more. He added a small heating duct, additional insulation and a custom-made insulated, wooden door. In addition, he tidied up the wiring, replaced some poorly installed insulation and put down a new vapor barrier. He also sent me some pictures to show what had been done. Chris really knows crawlspaces and I highly recommend him.

Cleaned crawlspace, dug ''french drain'' with sump pump, installed vapor barrier and stabilized appropriate ductwork and miscellaneous lines with plastic hangers, getting everything off the crawlspace floor. Chris Crow and his crew did what they said they would do. Chris was very responsive and professional in his approach. His crew was very conscientious and sensitive to our needs. I am very satisfied with the work performed and the level of customer service.

When Chris Crow first came to my home I told him that I hardly ever went down to the root cellar as I hated going down there, it was scary looking and such a mess. When the job was done I went down there and could not believe what a huge transform they had done on it. I am still in shock, I now am not scared to go into the root cellar it is a whole new different room. To all that are reading this Chris Crow and his crew are professional, reasonable and take pride and quality in their work. I did have a few early mornings with them but it was worth it. You are ace in my book guys.
