Moisture Season

August 10, 2022

Moisture season is coming faster than usual this year. The humid climate we live in can cause allkinds of problems in your crawl space. Increased insect activity is the first thing we notice but it is only anuisance, the real problem is the moisture accumulating under the home. The moisture evaporates and starts to collectin the insulation and on the floor joists. Moisture on structural woodwork is allowed to condense in your crawlspace during these humid months can cause real problems overtime with thestructural integrity of your home.

The first thing you can notice is insulation getting heavyand stringing down in the crawl space. At this point the R-value has weakened and insulation is no longerperforming at its intended rating.
