Charlotte Home Inspector Finds Troubled Crawl Space

October 16th, 2012 · No Comments


Preston Sandlin of Home Inspection Carolina in Charlotte NC was inspecting an older home off Crmel Rd in South Charlotte last week when he ran into some problems in the crawl space resulting from high moisture.  If you look at the picture you will see a couple of things going on here.  First there is high moisture fom a lack of ventilation.  The homeowner had put a slab addition on the rear of the house which closed off all the vents back there creating dead air space.  The next problem is that the insulation is reversed.  The paper should be adjacent to the living space.  All this moisture over the years has cause fungus and rot on the floor joists.  It’s very important not to have a crawl space with hight moisture.  If you would like someone to check out your crawlspace and the rest of your home call Home inspection Carolina today.
