CNT FOUNDATIONS: Importance of Proper Crawl Space Insulation

SOUTH CAROLINA, June 1, 2021—CNT Foundations, a foundation repair company and general contractor that serves South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia, wants to warn everyone about the dangers of not having a properly insulated crawl space, even during the summer months. It is easy during the cold months to think about the amount of heat escaping through a poorly insulated crawl space, and how that hikes up utility bills, which is why people rarely think about the damage that is done during the summer.

But during the upcoming summer season, the area gets heavy rains, muggy temperatures, and long periods of high humidity and heat. This can lead to increased humidity beneath your house, resulting in numerous problems. Moisture can climb up into the foundation and cause structural damage. The wet environment and high humidity creates the perfect home and breeding ground for all kinds of pests that will ultimately roam up into the house itself. On top of it all, that extreme humidity also allows mold and mildew to grow and spread quickly.

There are numerous ways to attack these issues, and CNT Foundations can diagnose and recommend the best methods for dealing with them. The important thing to do is check the humidity level in your crawl space. If it reaches 50% or higher, you will want to contact a team of crawl space experts right away, because if you put it off until another day, numerous other problems can arise.
