The door should also ensure a secure seal if fitted properly. This is to prevent unwanted intruders and moisture from entering and offering optimum conditions for potential pest and moisture problems. However, not all doors do what they are supposed to. Furthermore, factory made doors are not designed to suit the aesthetics of your home.

If the conditions like food, shelter and water are not available then you will not be a great choice for invading pests.

Then you will send out an invitation to these invaders.

Your door is a massive asset and investment. It can effectively help to seal your crawl space. This helps maintain a cleaner and healthier living environment while reducing the risk of costly pest infestations and damage, especially from wood-damaging pests.
