Crawl Space Condensation

Posted by Bill from New York on November 29th, 2002 01:07 PM

I have a sand crawl space and live very close to the water so I'm unable to put down a vapor barrier.(Crawl space can have up to a foot of water after a heavy rain)The house has a cinder block foundation with wood sills and joists etc.I have noticed that there is a tremendous amount of condensation around the 3 vents that are built into the foundation.It extends from the block to the sills,to joists right into subflooring.There doesn't seem to be any problem in the areas where the foundation doesn't have vents.It would seem the obvious thing to do would be block the vents when the weather becomes cool but when I first moved into the house years ago I did that (no condensation at the time just shutting out cold air)and that created a very bad condensation problem that way too. I greatly appreciate any hints or sugestions........ Thanks a million,Bill
