The crawl space isn’t a very common part of the home. Most homeowners prefer to have real basements which are big enough to serve as extra living spaces. However, for those who do have a crawl space, it isn’t as much a burden to manage as full size basements. Since you need to apply all sorts of protective features and even decorate your basement according to your liking, you may need to spend more on it to be able to maintain its good condition.
The crawl space is a small space underneath the house, much like a basement, but is very small. As its name indicates, the crawl space is only large enough for a person to crawl in the space. A few homes have crawl spaces since basements are more common underground spaces for homes. But for those homes that do have crawl spaces, there are both uses and problems which may arise from the presence of a crawl space.
The basement is one part of the home that is constructed earlier than the rest. It is located underground, and serves as a storage area for unused or old stuff. There are many types of basements like daylight basements, look-out basements, walk-up basements, cellars, and crawl spaces.
A crawl space, as inferred from the name itself, is an underground area that is not high enough for people to walk through. It is a small passage where a person must crawl into to be able to pass. The flooring of crawl spaces are usually unfinished, and even uncemented, meaning they are usually floored by soil. Crawl spaces are used as passages for accessing the water pipes and underground parts of the house. It is also used a storage area for clutter and infrequently used objects.
