Crawl Space Door Replacement in South Chesterfield, VA

Crawl Space Door Replacement in South Chesterfield, VA

Before After
Crawl Space Door Replacement in South Chesterfield, VA Crawl Space Door Replacement in South Chesterfield, VA

The original crawl space door on this home was a piece of ply-wood that had been damaged by weather over time. It was waterlogged and rotting, and because it didn't have a seal it didn't prevent pests or outside air and moisture from entering the crawl space. 


We installed a new crawl space door that will not warp, rust, or rot and is HOA friendly. Behind this door, is a friction-fit door that insulates and air seals behind the exterior door.

Spray Foam Insulation Contractor

Spray foam insulation is the best choice for insulation if you’re looking to increase your comfort & decrease your energy bills. Spray foam insulation is truly the best option for home insulation and here are a few reasons why. Spray Foam Insulation provides an air barrier due to its ability to fill gaps and cracks. It is also great at staying in the hard to reach areas because of its super-adhesive qualities. Unlike fiberglass and cellulose insulation, spray foam insulation is waterproof. Water will not be able to pass through the foam which makes it an extremely durable and long-lasting product. Lastly, spray foam insulation is foolproof. Spray foam is sprayed as a liquid and then expands and hardens to fill voids and gaps. There is never any chance for an area to be missed or void to form. Once cured, spray foam insulation will stay in place for decades to come and will never shift or settle like fiberglass. To ensure your home has the best insulation available and your energy bills are low, switch to spray foam insulation today!

Blown-in & Attic Insulation

Blown-in insulation is often called blow-in or blown insulation, but it doesn’t matter what you call it. What does matter is how well it keeps your home insulated. Many people are under the impression that their attic has enough insulation, however, 9 out of 10 times it does not. In a nationwide study, it was found that the average American attic only has about 1/3 enough insulation to keep the home properly insulated. That is where blown-in insulation comes in. Blown-in insulation is blown into your attic and forms a dense layer that will ensure heat will not escape through the top of your home. Having an attic that is properly insulated can cut heating and cooling costs but up to 20%. What are you waiting for? Call or click today to schedule a FREE blown-in or attic insulation estimate!

Job Stories From Colonial Heights, VA
Repairing a Colonial Heights, VA Crawl Space

This homeowner contacted us because their crawl space needed some TLC. They had noticed moisture issues in the crawl space and wanted to know what could be done to clean and protect the space. At our inspection, we found that the existing vapor barrier was bunched up in places and deteriorating. It was not covering the floor of the crawl space and was clearly not preventing water vapor from the ground from entering the crawl space. Mildew/Mold was growing on the floor joists, due to how damp and warm the crawl space was. Open vents and the unsealed crawl space door allowed warm, humid air to flood into the crawl space and wreak havoc. Insulation was completely missing in some areas and falling in others. The damp environment was ideal for pests, snakes, and termites.

At this time, this homeowner has several projects to complete and chose to move forward with air sealing and insulating their attic first. When they are ready for more forward with the crawl space, we provided a scope of work. We recommended that the homeowner remove any debris, the existing ground cover and insulation. We would then treat the joists with an antimicrobial to kill the mildew/mold. Next, we would recommend sealing all vents, the sill plate, and the rim and band. Then we would install a heavy duty CleanSpace vapor barrier that was strong enough to withstand service persons working in the crawl space without tearing or displacing the liner. The CleanSpace would be wrapped and sealed on all piers and sealed to the crawl space walls 2 inches below the top of the foundation wall. This would seal the crawl space off from the earth’s moisture and direct any moisture that came through the block wall blow the liner. Next, we would recommend insulating the crawl space walls with Rigid Foam Board insulation or Closed Cell Spray Foam leaving the 2” viewing strip for termite inspections, as required by VA building code. We also install a friction fit crawl space door behind the exterior door to air seal and insulate behind the access. Then we recommend installing a dehumidifier to control the relative humidity. The unit will only cut on when it is needed, preventing it from running all the time. We offer homeowners the option of replacing their existing exterior crawl space door with a new door that does not rust, rot, or warp and complies with most HOA guidelines.
