Crawl space Smart Vents are a great way to protect your home from water damage. Architects, builders, code officials, engineers, homeowners, insurance agents, and realtors are all turning to Smart Vent Foundation Flood Vents to protect homes from the devastation and severe damage caused by a flood.
The Purpose of a Flood Vent
The purpose of a flood vent is to protect houses and buildings during a flood by preventing water pressure buildup, which can destroy walls and foundations. Properly installed flood vents can not only help you preserve your investment, but they can also save you money from overpaying for flood insurance.
Different Ways to Protect Your Home from Flood Water
There are different ways that you can protect your home from water damage caused by flooding. Depending on the source and extent of the problem, one method may be better for your home than the other.
At NSquare, Inc. we are happy to provide a recommendation on the best possible solution for your home.
Dry floodproofing means certain techniques are applied to keep floodwaters from entering the property. This would involve sealing the structure with waterproof compounds to keep it dry below the flood protection elevation.
Wet floodproofing is the process of utilizing engineered flood vents (Smart Vents) to protect houses and buildings from being damaged during a flood. Strategically placed flood vents allow floodwater to flow through an enclosure such as a garage or crawl space.
Why Choose Smart Vents?
There are a variety of flood vents on the market. Some open and close automatically, some stay open on their own, some are extremely expensive, and some are made out of stainless steel, plastic, or wood.
Smart Vent Products, Inc. is the leading worldwide manufacturer of foundation flood venting systems. At NSquare, Inc., we trust in Smart Vent Products, Inc. for their reliable and quality products to offer to our customers.
Benefits of Smart Vents
Like any other flood vent on the market, Smart Vents work to relieve water pressure from flooding by creating a passageway for water to flow through your crawl space walls. If this passageway didn’t exist, water would build up pressure against your walls and cause structural damage.
The Smart Vent is designed to easily allow the water to flow through without any clogging or malfunction.
Aside from quality and reliability, Smart Vents come with many other benefits:
- Easy to install into new or existing areas
- Made out of stainless steel for durability
- Meet or exceed flood and corrosion resistance code requirements
In order to be compliant with building codes, there has to be so much of an opening per square inch. Smart Vents open wider than typical flood vents, allowing the customer to become flood insurance compliant.
