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

Crawlspace Doctor installed insulation, a French drain, sump pump, dehumidifier and a vapor barrier in our crawlspace. They showed up when they said they would, got done when they said that they would and hauled off all debris. It was a very good experience and we would not hesitate to use them again.

Robert and Mary Horneker

David & Dina Cripe
West Terre Haute, IN

Didn't have work done, needed an estimate of the crawlspace work needed and cost to fix problems. Chris was very thorough and knowledgeable. He spent over an hour under my house, evaluating everything and taking pictures that he then put on a cd for me to view. If I was staying in my home or the party hiring the contractor, I would definitely hire Chris from the Crawlspace Doctor. He was very professional and thorough in his evaluation and spent time explaining his findings and the best way to result the current problems and how to proactively curb future problems. As time was critical due to the sale process, Chris worked us right into his schedule and came out the next day to give us an estimate.

Colleen Haggerty

Chris's crew cleaned the crawl space and did a fantastic job in preparing the space. They went above and beyond to ensure that the crawl space was sealed and that the trouble spots were addressed. They were on time and provided excellent customer service. Chris took the time to prepare the photos to show the crawl space trouble spots and was very honest in all of his recommendations. His team cleaned the workspace when they were done and then Chris took after photos to show what was done. While this is not a visible home improvement, it has improved the humidity in the house and in the windows. This was a worthwhile investment and would recommend this business to anyone needing this work done.
