Basement and Porch Ventilation
We have a full basement, and I mean full. It sits under the whole house. This is new construction. The walls under the front porch are also poured concrete. There is an access from under the porch to the basement area. We plan to put a door there after the porch floor is complete. Here is the question: There is no ventilation in the porch walls. The contractor said that it was not necessary. Is this true? I think with little or no air flow under the porch, it will sweat in the summertime, the condensation causing a moisture problem. I am considering filling in the porch and pouring its floor as a slab instead of swinging it on steel. Any suggestions?
