Spray Foam on Foundation Walls in Glen Allen, VA

Spray Foam on Foundation Walls in Glen Allen, VA

Before After
Spray Foam on Foundation Walls in Glen Allen, VA Spray Foam on Foundation Walls in Glen Allen, VA

We installed about 1.5 inches of closed-cell spray foam over the foundation walls of this crawl space in Glen Allen, VA. At this thickness, the spray foam has an R10 value of insulation and acts as an air barrier and vapor retarder. We blocked out any open vents running along the crawl space wall, as these vents allow outside air and moisture to freely enter to crawl space, affecting the environment and relative humidity. With any insulation we install over the foundation walls, we always leave a 2-inch viewing strip at the top of the wall for termite inspectors. With these solutions in place, the crawl space is better protected from any outside influence penetrating through the foundation walls.

Project Location: Glen Allen, VA
I have lived in this house since 1996. Several times I have been woken up to a loud noise. I have read that it's caused from the temperature change and the duct work under the house. The foundation didn't have any cracks in them. I have a few cracks at the top of a few doors in the house. And have you every had the trim board pull away from the wall. We build the house and I did put any caulk or anything on top of the trim before painting. I noticed in one room the trim looks like it's pulled away from the wall a little. Not all rooms are like that it's mostly in one room and usually the door is closed and I am not sure that has anything to do with it.
