Water and Moisture in A Vented Dirt Crawl Space

Just as water can easily leak inside porous block foundation walls that also have fallen victim to hydrostatic pressure, there’s another way it can enter your home – through crawl space vents. An open dirt crawl space is a recipe for disaster, as water, moist air, and pests all wreak havoc on this area under your house. Any metal support systems will rust, corrode and begin to fail, and wooden supports will bend, warp and sag. All of this leads to uneven floors above, impacting the safety and structural stability of your living space.
