  1. drafty crawl space
  2. high utility bills in the winter?

    A drafty crawl space could cause high utility bills in the winter. Inferior fiberglass insulation, along with broken and damaged vent covers, allows cold air into the home, causing drafty rooms and cold floors.

  3. wet crawl space
  4. care for a swim?

  5. cold crawl space
