20150204_124939

Implementing a sealed or encapsulated crawl space into new construction can save your investment from being damaged by mold and moisture from the very beginning. According to NC Building Code section 1203.3.2 Vents to the outside are not required in  crawl spaces that have  proper ventilation and conditioning  as well as a class 1 vapor retarder installed. Better control over the crawl space environment will ensure humidity levels are at or below 60% ensuring a healthy and safe environment for your family and home.
