Does your Crawl Space look like this..... ....Or like this?!?
Crawl Spaces are dark, dirty, often damp, and always dusty. They are also directly attached to your home and dramatically affect the Indoor Air Quality. If your builder even thinks about selling you an open crawl think again!!! Bain-Waring did its first enclosed crawl space in the early 1990's and it will soon be code for every home. Every Bain-Waring home utilizes an enclosed, conditioned crawl space. This helps to improve overall comfort as well as reduce monthly energy bills and significantly improve the quality of the air you and your family breathe day-in and day-out.
