Although, in some states, the building code still requires that crawl spaces be vented, Virginia has made a significant change to their building code for crawl space ventilation. According to the change, crawl space ventilation openings are not required where exposed earth is covered with a continuous vapor retarder or barrier.
Your home is a system, and every part of that system plays a role that affects the rest of the structure. A dirt, vented or unconditioned concrete crawl space under your Virginia home is a very bad idea. The earth has very high humidity in the soil. The underground water vapor moves easily into the crawl space and upwards into your house environment. If your crawl space begins to rot, grow mold, or experience structural problems, this will extend to every part of your home. In addition, A home with a dirt crawl space costs more to heat or cool and can raises your heating and cooling cost 15% (to 25%) every month. So, fixing your crawl space is one home repair you can't afford not to make.
Fortunately, there is an ultimate solution to dirt crawl spaces - The CleanSpace System - developed by Basement Systems, the world leader in dry basement and crawl space technology. The CleanSpace Encapsulation System completely stops moisture penetration. It's also tough enough for you to crawl on it and to use your crawl space for storage without worry of putting holes or tears in the liner.
Whether you live in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Arlington, Richmond or Newport News, we have our Virginia crawl space contractors available to install the CleanSpace system in your neighborhood.
