Air and moisture traveling up through the ground will make its way into a home through the floor if the crawl space has not been properly insulated. Closed cell spray foam is one of the best products for insulating a tight crawl space. It expands to fully seal all potential sources of air leaks and easily encapsulates any ducts, electrical wiring, and plumbing that may run through the underside of your home. Its resistance to water allows it to also double as an effective vapor barrier, preventing a number of moisture issues. Fort Mill Spray Foam Insulation offers basement and crawl space insulation services to help you improve the energy efficiency of your home and maintain a more comfortable and pleasant living environment for you and your family.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation
Because spray foam expands to conform to the space in which it is installed, it is often much more effective at creating an air seal and vapor barrier for your home than traditional batts or rolled insulation products that are thicker and more rigid. For crawl spaces, we highly recommend closed cell spray foam for its excellent water resistance and outstanding thermal performance. Additionally, spray foam can deter mold and mildew growth as well as prevent rodents and other critters from creating a nest within your insulation.
Spray foam insulation can be installed over the span of 1-2 days depending on the size of the area that requires insulating. If there is existing insulation that needs to be removed before installation can get underway, the project may take longer. Our company delivers fast, affordable, and professional spray foam insulation installations to help you weatherproof your crawl space and prevent excessive heat loss through the floor of your home.
Crawl spaces can often be dark, damp, and tiny – for most homeowners, it is an area that they would rather avoid. This means that it is not likely to be a place where many are willing to invest money into upgrades and improvements. However, neglecting to install a proper air and vapor barrier within the crawl space to protect your home can be a costly mistake. An uninsulated or improperly insulated crawl space can account for up to 20% of your home’s heat loss. Furthermore, it can allow moisture from the ground to rise up into your home, creating a damp and unhealthy environment where mold, mildew, and bacteria can flourish. Our company can help you retrofit your existing crawl space in order to improve energy efficiency and comfort. We are able to remove and replace old or damaged insulation with top quality closed cell spray foam insulation to help you eliminate cold floors and musty odors once and for all.
