Historic home with new addition
Creating access under a home is necessary to control moisture, mold and even climate control issues. (DepositPhotos)
We welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show. Here’s a question from our Nov. 16 broadcast: Shawn in Iowa moved into a home that included an addition from a previous homeowner. There isn’t any access under the home and the cold air and moisture are making living there uncomfortable. We tell Shawn that he must somehow get under the house.  Hiring a professional to create an access point may be the way to go. Once he is under the house, he needs to add plastic and insulation. Listen to the embedded audio clip above for the full answer! Read the blog from the Nov. 16 show and listen to the full broadcast here.
