A dry, healthy home starts here.
Crawl spaces are well known for being damp, dark, moldy spaces all over the world, and for good reason! It's rare to find a crawl space that's been designed with traditional building science that looks any other way.
At the root of most crawl space problems lies two usual suspects: moisture and humidity.
But this does not need to be the reality for your home! There are simple, effective ways to solve nearly any problem with a crawl space -- and the moisture that causes so many of them can certainly be controlled!
The following articles are packed with information about crawl space issues of all types. We invite you to look through them and learn what's going on with your home. If you'd like a one-on-one meeting with a professional, we also provide free crawl space repair estimates to homeowners throughout Canada and the United States.

Building code is changing quickly worldwide, and is moving away from vented crawl spaces --permanently.
It's been proven thousands of times that vented crawl spaces bring in outdoor moisture and humidity, let in pests, and lead to a number of issues with moldy, rotting crawl spaces.

Today, this method is being used by contractors all over the world to help create drier healthier spaces.
