Wrong Foundation Vents

These foundation foundation vents do not allow enough air into the crawlspace area for proper ventilation. The louvers restrict the air movement and over time the crawlspace could suffer from excessive moisture.

Too much moisture could create wood rot and attract termites.

Louvered vents were installed over the original quarter inch square screening that was probably damaged from age or poor maintenance.

This is another one of those instances, where installing something to cosmetically solve one problem, creates another problem.
