Crawl Space Insulation Contractors
Crawl spaces aren't given a lot of thought when we think about the most important features in our home. But without proper crawl space insulation, you can end up with comfort problems throughout your home, and lots of wasted energy – and money. Crawl spaces that have dirt floors or moisture problems end up being cold in the winter and damp in the summer.
Do You Have Crawl Space Insulation Problems?
There are a few telltale signs that your crawl space is poorly insulated:
- The crawl space often feels damp.
- You can see and/or smell mold.
- Any existing insulation has shifted or fallen out of place.
- There are rodents or insects in the crawl space.
- The floor above crawl space is very cold in the winter, and you have to keep the heat constantly running to keep the room above the crawl space comfortable in cold weather.
The Wrong Crawl Space Insulation
We know that a properly sealed and insulated basement or crawl space can improve indoor air quality and increase a home's energy efficiency, and Green Collar Crew has the solution to your improperly insulated basement foundation in the Charlotte, North Carolina area.
Seal Air Leaks
Before any other work is done, Green Collar Crew technicians will seal the rim joist around the foundation to make sure that there are no cracks where air can leak through.
Rigid Foam Insulation for Basements
After all the cracks are sealed, the walls are insulated with rigid foam insulation. Because basements are susceptible to moisture, rigid foam insulation is often used because it won't absorb moisture, compress, fall out of place, or get moldy.
