The theories behind the control of humidity in crawlspaces of buildings have changed over the years. It has been previously believed that the proper way to control humidity has been to utilize foundation vents to increase air flow within the crawlspace. The increase of air flow was designed to allow humidity to escape through the foundation vents to the outside of the building. Building codes required installing foundation vents according to the size of the crawlspace.

Building codes have now changes throughout the country to allow for "conditioned crawlspaces". The foundation vents that were originally designed to eliminate humidity actually help to increase the level of humidity in most crawlspaces. Instead of allowing humidity to escape, the foundation vents allowed hot, humid air in the summer to enter the cool crawlspace. The humid air then condensed on the cool water pipes and air conditioning pipes and dramatically increased the level of humidity in the crawlspace.

The increase of humidity created conditions suitable for mold and fungus growth. "Conditioned crawlspaces" eliminate excessive humidity in crawlspaces and help eliminate the conditions that allow for mold and mildew growth. Crawlspace Doctor has developed systems to control humidity in crawlspaces.

Indiana West Central Customer Testimonials

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

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

We were very pleased with Chris Crow and his detailed estimate. It seemed very fair. He finished what he had promised and found other problems such as termites had eaten the 2.4's and would need replacing. We were very grateful that they did not just 'do the job they came for' and let it go. We had them to repair the 2.4's and they did an excellent job. The employees that were on the job every day were very diligent and energetic. The whole experience was very pleasant. I would recommend the CrawlSpace Doctor to anyone who had a problem of this sort.

Ed and Karen Johnson

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.
