The Building Science on Vented vs. Closed Crawlspaces

Tuesday, January 31 | 9:30 - 10:00 AM
LVCC - IBS Construction Performance Zone - SU844

What It’s About

Vented crawl spaces consistently have moisture issues that contribute to pest infestations, buckling hardwood floors, high energy bills, humid and musty air inside the home and even structural damage. Learn the building science behind correctly closing crawl spaces, the pros and cons of different techniques, best practices versus code and how sealed crawl spaces provide homeowners comfortable, healthy, safe and protected homes. We’ll also address how to reduce builder callbacks and warranty claims.
