What is a Crawl Space?

A crawl space foundation is designed with an engineered floor truss system supported by an elevated stem wall. Crawl spaces are typically used in areas with colder climates and/or high moisture, where excessive water can build up. Supporting the home off of the ground keeps it away from moisture that could cause damage. A crawl space will also allow easy access to piping and utility areas underneath the home for both hookups and any necessary repairs.
