Crawl Space Insulation

Does your home have the wrong type of crawl space insulation?

Signs of crawl space insulation problems:

Believe it or not, many homeowners do not know what type of insulation is in their crawl space. It is often a factor that is ignored, or not seen as a crucial aspect of crawl space health.

Check out these critical signs that you may need to explore alternative options for your crawl space insulation:

  • The floor above the crawl space is unpleasantly cold in wintertime.
  • During cold weather, you need to keep the heat on constantly to be comfortable in the rooms directly above the crawl space.
  • Mice or other pests have taken up residence in the fiberglass insulation installed between joists in the crawl space.
  • Fiberglass batt insulation has fallen out of place from between floor joists in the crawl space.
  • The crawl space smells musty, moldy, has visible signs of growth, and/or is damp.

If for any reason the above points apply to your home, you may need to consider a change in your crawl space insulation. When it comes to your crawl space, the same kind of insulation in your attic cannot be used for the same purposes.

The best and most efficient type of insulation to use is Rigid Foam insulation as it cannot be damaged by moisture and will not degrade over time. The Rigid Foam is manufactured into panels that fit against the interior foundation walls of the crawl space, which improves your overall home energy performance. Rigid foam insulation is often more expensive than fiberglass insulation, but the benefits and long-lasting durability cannot be overlooked. It will deliver the same performance in 15 years as it does on day 1 of installation. There is no clean up, and no need to have it redone in a few years like one would with fiberglass insulation.

We will help you improve the condition of your crawl space and living space with products especially made for these environments. Give us a call today!
