Crawl Space Tips

Did you know that having an adequate vapor barrier in your crawl space (one that reaches each corner of the crawl) is one of the easiest and best ways to reduce moisture in the crawl? It literally says it in the name – vapor BARRIER. You want a nice dry crawl space so that your support beams don’t start to rot and MOLD doesn’t have a chance to grow and get airborne and enter your living space. One of the things we always check in home inspections is your vapor barrier and the moisture content of the wood in your crawl. This is especially important if you are purchasing a home and need to find out the health or your crawl, or if you’ve been living in the home for years and haven’t had a home inspection in the past 3-5 years. Call us today or schedule your inspection online!
