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.

North Carolina East Customer Testimonials

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

The purpose of this letter is to express to you, in writing, our deep satisfaction with the methods used and the results accomplished by Brad and his crew during their work here at our home. 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.

Sincerely,
Anthony H. Dingman

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,
Vincent L. Simmons
