Our crawl space doors are airtight and made from high-quality materials.
Typical crawl space doors are made with painted wood panels. They’re usually held on by metal nails or hinges. However, wood rots and metal rusts, and when they’re installed on your home, they quickly begin to fall apart.

Once installed on your crawl space, these doors create an airtight, waterproof seal between your crawl space and the cold or humid air outside.

Old crawl space doors lead to many problems. Along with being an eyesore, they also allow pests such as termites, ants, and mice into your home.
And because they’re not airtight, they allow humidity into your basement during the summer, which leads to mold and rot. In the winter, cold winter air will enter, cooling your furnace, water heater, air ducts, hot water pipes, and other utilities.
