The crawlspace access is one of the most penetrated areas, and the most common entry point for rodents and other destructive creatures into your crawlspace.

Crawlspace Hatch Cover
If you have a well around your access, a good crawlspace hatch cover is important. The hatch cover is the first line of defense for both animals and the weather. Especially in western Washington, a good hatch cover will keep out the rain and help prevent flooding in your crawlspace through the access area.
A Better Crawl, Inc. will build you a custom fit hatch cover that will guard your access from any undesirable entity.
Underground Downspout Discharge
Your gutters and down spouts carry a lot of water, water you don't want anywhere near your foundation. Many houses have faulty drainage systems or no drainage systems and saturate your foundation, seeping water into your crawlspace or basement and potentially causing flooding and damage.
A Better Crawl, Inc. installs underground downspout discharge systems away from your home to a pop up bubbler, at an appropriate distance so no downspout water penetrates your crawlspace or basement.
Vent Screen Repair
Your vents are another problem area for rodent penetration. When your screens get old they can become brittle and break, leaving openings for rodents to enter your crawlspace and create all kinds of havoc and costly damage.
A Better Crawl, Inc. will inspect all your vents and repair them if necessary to cut off the access for rodents through your vents.
