CNT FOUNDATIONS: Proper Crawl Space Insulation for Summer

SOUTH CAROLINA, August 11, 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. The cooler months might easily remind you about the amount of heat escaping through a poorly insulated crawl space and how bills increase during those months. Rightly so. Other dangers arrive during the summer months that can result in even more costly damages.

Heavy rains mixed with long periods of high humidity and muggy heat can lead to increased humidity beneath your house resulting in all kinds of problems. Moisture will soak into the foundation causing structural damage. The wet environment and high humidity allow mold and mildew to grow and spread rapidly in places you cannot see. The summer climate also creates the perfect breeding ground for all kinds of pests. Not only will these creatures roam up into the house itself searching for food, but some might infest the damp-softened wood.

There are numerous ways to attack these issues, which CNT Foundations can diagnose. We will suggest the best method for dealing with any structural or foundation problem. The important thing to do is check the humidity levels in your crawl space. If it reaches 50% or higher, you will want to contact someone quickly, because if you put it off until another day or year, numerous other problems can spring up.
