When foundation vents were installed in crawlspaces they allowed cold air to enter. In the winter months the cold air had the potential of freezing water pipes and allowing the floors to remain cold. This challenged the heating system to try to warm the home. Fiberglass insulation had to be added to the floor joists in an attempt to prevent the cold crawl space air from making the floors cold. The same foundation vents that allow the cold air to enter in the winter also allowed humid air to enter in the summer.

The humidity would condense in the cool crawl space and collect on the fiberglass insulation. Between the humidity and occasionally rodents, the fiberglass insulation often would fall to the ground. Styrofoam insulation is also often used to insulate the exterior crawl space walls. This is a preferred method. If foundation vents are installed the insulation value will be decreased by the foundation vent openings allowing cold air to bypass the insulation.

Creating a "Conditioned Crawlspace" utilizing Styrofoam insulation and eliminating foundation vents is the preferred method for energy efficiency and humidity control. Crawlspace Doctor has developed systems for all crawl space insulation needs.

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

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.
