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.

My wife and I found your entire crew to be friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about the work they were to perform. In particular, we appreciate their cleaning up after themselves before they left each day.While your initial evaluation of the work to be done and your estimate of the cost involved, was extremely clear, detailed and competitive in price, we observed numerous occasions when it seemed that Brad and his crew went out of their way to do more than was required. We felt that they were taking as good care of our home as they would of their own. In summary. We felt that we had accomplished, with the crew’s skills and experience. Some of the best home improvement we have experienced in living in this house for the past 34 years.

I was completely satisfied with the professionalism and the attention to detail that the Crawlspace Doctor showed while renovating my crawl space. They came in and explained their approach to creating a clean, energy efficient maintenance free area. They encouraged me to research or investigate their methods and compare it to other companies. They started the job on time, kept me informed every step of the way and finished with a “new “ crawl space. I highly recommend this company- their quality, knowledge and integrity is first class.

Respectfully,

I would like to thank for the recent work that you did on my home in Raleigh. During the purchase of my home I discovered that the crawlspace had a high level of moisture and humidity. Your company promptly came out and gave me a reasonable estimate to correct the issue. Your crew came out on time and was very professional. Even after the first day there was a noticeable difference in the home. The air no longer seemed heavy and stuffy inside the home. I am completely satisfied that my moisture problems have been corrected.

Thank You,
Kenneth Stanley
