Spring means warmer weather and sunny days ahead. It’s also the time for winter melting and showers. Having your crawl space in proper condition will help keep water out of your crawl and help maintain the structural integrity of your home.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when checking out your crawl space:
One key to keeping water out of your crawl space is to move water away from your house. Making sure water properly drains away from your home will give water somewhere to go, rather than having it find a path of its own — into your crawl space.
It’s very common for cracks to form on the walls of a crawl space. Sealing these points will help water and pests out of your crawl space.
Insulating and conditioning your crawl space helps maintain the temperature of the floors in your home. It also creates additional storage under your home, increasing your home’s usable space. Spray foam insulation is a great product for insulating crawl spaces – in one application it insulates and seals cracks and other penetration points.
