Is your home maximizing its potential? Every home comes with unique features that allow it to stand out. Maybe you have a wrap-around porch that offers charm and elegance and the perfect place to relax after a long day. Keeping this space painted and well cared for year-round can add considerable value to your home, because a beautiful exterior provides outstanding curb appeal and functionality that sets your property apart.

The same rule of thumb can apply to the interior spaces in your home, and even those you don’t see.

You may not think of your crawl space as a place to renovate and restore, but crawl space restoration can be one of the best home upgrades you invest in. The space under your home provides a base and can be one of the most important components to attend to in order to maintain your home in prime condition for years to come.

What is a Crawl Space?

A crawl space is a narrow space underneath a building that’s located between the ground and the first floor. This space isn’t tall enough to allow you to stand up, leading to its name. You will have to get down on all fours to enter your crawl space, and be careful not to hit your head trying to get a better look.

This being said, a crawl space can extend under the entire area of your home, occupying a large expanse. Many people check their crawl space about once a year and quickly close the door, leave it, and forget about it. For some, this area is a tempting place to store paint cans and old two-by-fours, as well as any other equipment and tools that might be used in the general upkeep and maintenance of your property.

While it might look as fancy as an old shed, keeping your crawl space well-sealed and in excellent condition is essential.

How Restoration Increases Home Value

Crawl space restoration can lead to a healthy home free of moisture and problems.

Encapsulating your crawl space can:

  • Improve your home’s air quality
  • Reduce the risk of pests
  • Save money on your energy bills
  • Increase energy efficiency
  • Protect against wood rot
  • Reduce mold
  • Lower humidity levels in your home
  • Warm your floors
  • Keep your pipes from freezing
  • Increase your home’s resale value

Your crawl space is exposed to the ground and all that comes with it. When excess moisture and humidity get in, mold can grow and cause wood rot. Crawl space moisture can also migrate upstairs in something called the “stack effect”. Over time, this can lead to a musty smell in your home and even structural damage.

An unsealed crawl space can also invite unwanted pests into your home. Infestations can cause structural issues and can be expensive to get rid of. Investing in crawl space restoration means your home can keep its charm AND good health.
