Before and After Pictures from Midlothian
Midlothian, VA Crawl Space Encapsulation

Midlothian, VA Crawl Space Encapsulation

Before After
Midlothian, VA Crawl Space Encapsulation Midlothian, VA Crawl Space Encapsulation

Initially, this crawl space was encapsulated with a 6-mil vapor barrier and R-11 vinyl faced fiberglass insulation. Thhomeownerer contacted us with concerns about an ammonia, or animal urine odor in her home and poor air sealing. 

Our goal was to remedy the Home Owner’s concerns of foul odors in her home and wasted energy. To achieve this, we installed a 20 mil Clean Space Vapor Barrier on the floor of the crawl space and around the piers. We installed Foamax board insulation on the walls leaving a 3-inch viewing strip for pest control companies to do their inspection. We applied spray foam insulation to the rim and band and sill plate to create an air seal and reduce drafts coming into the crawl space. Finally, we installed a Sani Dry Sedona Dehumidifier, the leading dehumidifier on the market, to pull any moisture that enters the crawl space out.

This crawl space was originally encapsulated at construction with a 6 mil Vapor Barrier and R-11 vinyl faced fiberglass insulation. The homeowner complained of an animal urine or ammonia odor in their home. This was a result of moisture entering the crawl space through the porous cinder block walls and saturating the fiberglass insulation. 

We installed a 20 mil Clean Space Vapor Barrier, Foamax Insulation Board, sealed the rim & band and sill plate, and installed a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier. This approach will help keep moisture out of the crawl space and control relative humidity.

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!

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair Contractor

The crawl space is often a forgotten part of the home, however, issues in your crawl space can lead to issues in other areas of your home. That is why we believe crawl space repairs are extremely important. Our patented crawl space encapsulation systems prevent mold and mildew growth by keeping moisture & dampness out of the space. Our crawl space encapsulation process will also prevent high humidity which will stop moisture from being absorbed by the wood studs and even hardwood flooring. Crawl space encapsulation will also help to prevent structural damage because rot and decay commonly occur in damp environments. Lastly, our crawl space encapsulation system will deter insects and critters from entering your crawl space because a damp environment will attract them. If you would like to have a healthy & mold free home, contact us today and schedule a FREE crawl space repair or encapsulation estimate!

Insulate crawl space, it is all falling.
Vicinity of Kingsmill Road in Midlothian
We have an HVAC unit that is less than two years old, but our upstairs is sizzling while our downstairs is cool. We had the filter replaced and closed a few vents downstairs and that helped a bit. But when I went under the house with the HVAC guy, he said the duct insulation was in bad shape. Could that be the case of our problems? Perhaps it's leaks, or improper ductwork design? We need some honest advice about the best ways to proceed. Thanks!
