Crawl Space Ventilation in Metro Atlanta & Surrounding Areas

Since the house breathes from the bottom up, the last thing you want is to leave openings for outside air to come in and allow dirty air from the crawl space to enter your home and cause your family to breathe in dirt and mold particles, causing allergy symptoms and other health issues.

Crawl space vents are NOT the answer!

In order to prevent potential health issues, mold, mildew, odors and other damage to your home, you should have your crawl space vents sealed off. By doing so, the sealed vents will help keep outside air and other elements such as insects, overly hot or cold temperatures, and moisture out. Our vent covers are mechanically attached to form an airtight bond.

Vented Crawl Spaces are Trouble

Construction workers have always favored crawl spaces because they're faster and less expensive to build than a full-blown basement foundation. This type of traditional crawl space utilizes openings or air vents in the crawl space walls so that the air outside can circulate underneath your living space.

If there is any insulation installed, you may find it in the form of fiberglass batts, placed between crawl space joists, while the crawl space's floor will be made of soil, or concrete.

Having this type of crawl space is a problem, as during the summer, warm and moist air can enter the crawl space, condensing on the cooler crawl space surface. When the crawl space continuously receives this warm air, it causes moisture to form, which invites mold to grow and causes wood to rot.

The presence of wet wood also attracts insects such as termites and carpenter ants, who want nothing more than to chew up the wood and terrorize your home. Additionally, the fiberglass insulation easily absorbs moisture, causing it to sag and fall out of place onto the crawl space floor. In the winter, there's a new set of problems: the floors become too cold because of the wet and missing insulation, meaning higher heating bills.

One factor that isn't determined by season is the indoor air pollution that can cause respiratory problems, because of the mold spores that enter the living space through the cracks and gaps in the walls and floors of the crawl space.
