The Importance Of A Crawl Space Cover

The crawl space cover is made for the exterior of your home, for increased ventilation and for moisture barriers. As the crawl space is the area of the home that lies between the ground and the finished part of the building or the first floor. It usually only allows approximately 3 feet and 3 inches or 4 feet and 11 inches of space between the ground and the building, not allowing the average adult to stand. Thus, the title crawl space was given to that area of the home.

If the cover is used on the exterior, it is to keep out excessive moisture, debris and living critters that may decide to enter. These covers are made of metal and heavy-duty plastic. All these covers come with latches to close the covers and keep them securely closed until they are needed to be opened again.
