Revolutionizing Your Crawl Space with Groundworks Airtight Crawl Space Doors

November 29, 2023

It's a perennial challenge for homeowners: ensuring that the crawl space under their homes remains dry, mold-free, and inaccessible to pests. However, the bitter truth is that many builder-grade doors installed on crawl spaces tend to be problematic. Made of wood, these traditional doors are fraught with issues, such as susceptibility to mold and rot due to prolonged exposure to the elements. Thankfully, Groundworks has an impressive solution to these challenges: airtight crawl space doors.

Crawl spaces, positioned typically under homes, require a secure, robust covering. They act as a crucial line of defense – in no small measure regulating airflow, moisture, and uninvited creatures from finding home under your own. Understandably, a rotting, mold-infested crawl space door could distort the structural integrity of your home, substantially increase indoor humidity levels, and expose it to the risk of pest infestations.

One of the leading causes of rot and mold on crawl space doors is moisture. Traditionally designed wood doors are open to the brutal elements and, more often than not, fail to keep moisture at bay. They absorb water, badly warp, and subsequently become a fertile breeding ground for mold and mildew. Moreover, these doors rarely provide an airtight seal, allowing the passage of air which can potentially increase energy costs and open the gate for pests to enter.

You may be wondering, what's the solution to these issues? This is where Groundworks come into play.

Groundworks has designed a remarkable product – airtight crawl space doors – that aim to make crawl spaces a lot less dreary and a whole lot safer. These doors are explicitly designed to provide a robust, impenetrable barrier against moisture and pests. Constructed with high-quality, non-organic materials, these doors do not rot, decay, or welcome mold colonies.

The standout feature, however, has to be the airtight seal. Groundworks' crawl space doors offer this unique characteristic to ensure a complete lockdown against exterior air and pest invasion. It keeps the air under your home fresh, greatly diminishing the possibility of molds and mildews complicating your indoor air quality. In contrast to the traditional wooden doors, by installing airtight doors, the humidity level can be well managed, maintaining the home's structural integrity.

Another impressive benefit of such an inclusive blockade is the potential to save on energy costs. A constant draught under your home can make your HVAC system work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature level in your house. With Groundwork’s airtight crawl space doors, you eliminate this issue altogether!
