Installing CleanSpace in a Weems, VA Crawl Space

6-mil vapor barriers are most commonly installed when a home is built, they are lightweight, similar to a standard trash bag, they tear easily, and are simply laid out on the ground. As soon as someone or something moves through the crawl space, the liner is displaced, torn, and bunched up, offering very little protection to the home from the earth's moisture. 


Our homeowner opted to replace this 6mil with a CleanSpace 20-mil vapor barrier. This liner is similar to a pool liner, it's durable enough for service persons to crawl and work under the home, is overlapped and sealed at all seams, wrapped and sealed around all piers, and attached and sealed to the foundation walls about 6 inches above outside grade. It completely seals the crawl space from the earth's moisture, achieving the job vapor barriers are intended to do.

Moving the crawl space insulation from between the floor joists to the foundation walls extends the thermal boundary of the home to the floor of the crawl space. Along with insulating the rim and band, this helps to reduce drafts and cold floors. 


Foam Board is installed by mechanically attaching it to the foundation walls leaving a viewing strip at the top of the foundation wall per building code for termite inspections. All seams of the foam board are sealed to create an air barrier.

Job Stories From Weems, VA
Insulation & Air Sealing an Attic in Weems, VA

A Weems, VA homeowner contacted us because they wanted to add insulation to their attic. They had existing blown-in fiberglass insulation, but it wasn’t doing the job. Insulation is measured by R-value, the material’s ability to resist the transfer of heat. When an attic has little insulation, the sweltering summer temperatures and cold winter temperatures influence the comfort of the rooms below making them hard to heat and cool.

The attic also had several recessed or can lights. Can lights allow approximately 10 CFM (cubic feet per minute) of air leakage, which works out to 10 basketballs of air per minute escaping through each can light. These lights tend to get very hot, and therefore cannot have insulation against them, allowing that space to be further unprotected from air loss. The attic currently has blown-in fiberglass insulation that doesn’t fill between all the floors joists and is pushed aside around can lights. Wire and utility penetrations contribute to the air loss in the home.

To help this homeowner we suggested air sealing the attic at all top plates, utility penetrations and installing rock wool can-light covers over the recessed lights and sealing them. The rock wool covers are fire retardant and safe to use near can lights, they also don’t directly touch the light and allow for air sealing. Next, we would install dams around the scuttle access to keep any insulation from falling in when the space is accessed. We would also install foam board insulation on the back of the scuttle access to reduce the transfer of heat from the attic through the scuttle door. Finally, we recommended installing blown-in cellulose insulation over the existing insulation.

If the homeowner chooses to go this route, they will experience more even temperatures throughout the home, a reduction in their energy bills, and reduce wear and tear on their HVAC unit.
