Crawl spaces need regular care from professionals such as ourselves, especially during the cold snowy weather of Alabama. In winters, a crawl space becomes quite sensitive if it is not protected well. As a result, eventually, your home and your health could be affected not to mention the expenses you'll have to bear.
A proper crawl space should have a moisture barrier and some gravel or other surface to reduce moisture buildup which is quite a challenge to overcome during winters. It's almost impossible to apply DIY methods and hope for effective solutions.

How Should You Prepare Your Crawl Space for Winter in Birmingham & Hoover?
Drainage Matting: Ox Foundation Solutions installs HealthyCrawl™ crawl space vapor barrier, a dimpled plastic material used on high footings or concrete floor to assist with crawl space drainage issues.
Crawl Space Vent Covers: If your crawl space has been vented, it creates big problems and it's necessary to seal any vents or areas where outside air can get in. We provide patented crawl space vent covers to solve this issue.
Encapsulation: To complete the process of sealing the crawl space, we install a patented crawl space encapsulation system CrawlShield™ to completely eliminate vapors and odors rising from the ground; creating a layer of protection between the dirt floor and your living space which also helps in lowering your home's heating bills while making the living space more comfortable
Crawl Space Dehumidification System: After the area is sealed, the moisture level will need to be controlled and brought down to a relative humidity below 50%, using our high-efficiency dehumidification systems.
