Question of the Week:
Bill in Virginia writes, “I’ve heard you discuss in podcasts the subject of damp crawlspaces.
On my most recent annual pest inspection, a higher than normal moisture level was indicated under my home, and I have been provided 2 options by crawl space contractors: 1) Replace my foundation vents with self-opening ones and add fans in the crawl space and 2) Seal up the vents and install a dehumidifier in the crawl space.
I appreciate any lessons learned/advise you might be able to provide for my decision.
