We build our house in october of 98, it has a crawlspace and everything in it is up to code. We are having problems with moisture coming through the vents in the crawlspace, yet when we checked under there its completely dry. My windows are double paned and sealed, but we get moisture build up on the bottom of them. On the walls inside the house i get mold forming where the walls meet the celing. Also get moisture seeping in through the floor. We use a Propane direct vent stove to heat the house. could that be the problem?? Could it be because of moisture in ground when we build the house?? didn't have much choice there, fire destroyed the other one that year. help please!

Just one suggestion -- if your crawl space doesn't have a layer of plastic on the ground, put one down. It made a huge difference in the moisture level under my house. It may help with your problem and it's an inexpensive fix. Even it it doesn't solve the current problem, it's a good idea to have it. You can get wide sheets of 6-mil plastic for that purpose at your local home improvement store.
