Well this is one way to vent a crawl space. A different look.
We get to see all kinds of peoples "Ideas" when it comes to their take on how to do something with their home when building it.
We try and stay on top of all the latest trendy things people try and incorporate into their homes. Some are good and some not so good.
Here we have a crawl pace under a home that is built at ground level. So how do you ventilate the crawl space?
You get very creative when doing so.
At least they did think of venting the crawl space when they built the home.
Here is a look at the venting for the crawl space.
There were or are a total of eight vents for this crawl space.
There is only Two issue's I have with this type of venting.
1. The vent is not screened and anything can get into the crawl space.
2. The vent will rust out eventually leaving the crawl space vulnerable to infestation.
Having said that. I recommended the stand pipes for the venting be made of a PVC substance. This way it would not ever rust out. Then you would simply install a screened cap on the pipe and be done with it.
For all the inspectors out there, I know the crawl space has no cross ventilation. Nor is this way a sound way of venting a crawl space.
But when the home is at ground level....What can we do?
Have a great day every One.
