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 Repair Experts

Crawl spaces are frequently neglected by homeowners because they are hidden away under our homes. Ignoring your home’s crawl space seems inconsequential, but disregarding your crawl space can lead to potentially critical problems. The air that flows through your home will eventually pass through your crawl space, taking with it pollen, mold spores, and various contaminants that prosper in the moist, cold, and dirty atmosphere of a vented crawl space.

In addition to leaving you and your family vulnerable to these contaminants, a vented crawl space can also result in expensive drafts that make for chilly temperatures in the higher floors. This issue is worsened by the utilization of fiberglass insulation that can become ineffective and soggy in the moist environment. These issues significantly decrease the energy efficiency of your entire home.

Luckily, The Drying Co./ThermalTec can reconstruct your crawl space so that what once was a hazard to your home becomes a resource. We provide a variety of crawl space solutions, such as:

  • Crawl Space Insulation
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Crawl Space Support Jacks
  • Crawl Space Dehumidifiers
  • And More!

Job Stories From Prince George, VA
Moisture Damage in Prince George, VA

This Prince George homeowner contacted The Drying Co. to discuss possible solutions to fix and encapsulate their home’s crawl space. We were ready and willing to help them develop a plan to ensure their crawl space was a clean and efficient environment. We sent out one of our experienced Home Performance Advisors to inspect the crawl space and provide a free estimate to the homeowner.

The first problem we found in the crawl space was that there was debris scattered around the floor, including some of the fiberglass insulation originally installed within the floor joists to insulate the first floor above. The existing 10-mil vapor barrier was torn apart and exposing the dirt floor in many places, leaving the Earth’s moisture to rise freely into the crawl space. With the crawl space being unsealed and the dirt floors of the crawl space exposed, the outside air leaking into the crawl space rises freely up into the home due to the stack effect.

The next thing we noticed was the open vents along the foundation walls. The crawl space is tremendously vulnerable to the influence of the outside air and moisture. The foundation walls are porous and not in any way preventing moisture from seeping through them. As the moisture migrates to the surface of the block wall, it brings minerals in the block with it, leaving behind a white powdery residue called efflorescence.

Open vents and unsealed porous foundation walls are not the only indications of moisture problems within this crawl space. There were mold and mildew growth on the floor joists. Mold and mildew will grow on any organic material in the crawl space so long as the conditions are met. There must be a relative humidity of at least 60% and the temperature will need to be around 70 degrees Fahrenheit or higher for mold to thrive within crawl spaces. Prolonged exposure to mold can cause asthma and irritate those who already asthma and allergies, and it can damage the structure of your home’s foundation.

All these problems leave the homeowners with symptoms such as drafts in their home, cold floors, high energy bills, poor indoor air quality, and can irritate allergies and asthma. After discussing our findings with the homeowner, we reviewed the different steps we could take to help them rectify the problems in their crawl space.

The first stage we would recommend for encapsulating their crawl space is to remove all debris and the fiberglass bats either laying on the ground or still lodged within the floor joists. The flimsy 6-mil vapor barrier needs to be removed. Once the crawl space is cleared, we would first address the mold problem on the floor joists and any organic material. We recommended treating the microbial growth with Shockwave Antimicrobial, a hospital-grade solution designed to kill the mold and mildew growth.

After the mold and mildew are taken care of, the next step we would recommend would be to install CleanSpace. It is a durable 20-mil vapor barrier used to seal off the crawl space from the earth’s rising moisture. It is durable enough to withstand service persons crawling on it or using the crawl space for storage. It is sealed around all crawl space piers and mechanically fastened and sealed to the foundation walls six inches above outside grade.

We would then focus our attention on the foundation walls and open vents. The first step would be to cover the inside of the open vents with foam board and sealed with foam. Blocking the open vents prevents a steady flow of outside air and moisture from invading the crawl space. The foundation walls would then be insulated with either closed-cell spray foam, which at one and a half inches this product acts as a vapor retarder and air barrier, or a Foamax foamboard. Insulating the foundation walls instead of the subfloor extends the thermal boundary of the home to the crawl space floor, allowing us to better control the temperature and relative humidity in the space.

The last task that we would suggest the homeowner take on would be for us to install a SaniDry Sedona. The dehumidifier pulls moisture from the surrounding air and regulates the relative humidity within the crawl space. The homeowner would be given a hygrometer, allowing them to monitor the exact temperature and percentage of humidity within the crawl space and in their home.

If the homeowner proceeds with this project to encapsulate their crawl space, they will see lower energy bills, warmer floors in the winter, and a decrease in bad odors sourced from the crawl space.
