Crawl Space Doors

A poorly fitted crawl space door can cause unwanted moisture to enter your property, attracting pests and encouraging mold growth. That can impact your family’s health and home’s foundation.

What Are Crawl Space Doors? 

A crawl space door gives you access to the small room underneath your home that normally contains your plumbing and wiring. If this door breaks or doesn’t fit properly, moisture can get into your property, leading to all kinds of problems.  

Investing in a high-quality crawl space door can protect your home from the elements, prevent pests, and preserve your property’s foundation. You can also improve air quality and energy efficiency. 

Signs You Need a Crawl Space Door

Think about getting a crawl space door if you experience any of these issues:

  • Rust, warping, or other damage on your door
  • Gaps around your door’s perimeter 
  • Signs of water leakage or flooding in your crawl space 
  • Increased humidity levels
  • A musty smell
  • Pest infestations
  • Mold growth
  • Expensive energy bills

Are Crawl Space Doors Necessary?

A secure door that protects your crawl space can stop excessive moisture and pests from entering your home. The Basement Guys specializes in tailor-made doors that ensure your home stays dry, comfortable, and safe.
