This client is turning a horse trailer into a tiny home and wanted to insulate the ceiling with closed cell spray foam. We installed an R-12 of insulation on the roof of this trailer.

Efflorescence on the walls and moisture stains on the block indicates that moisture has been working its way into this crawl space through the cinderblock foundation. 

As part of the encapsulation, Foamax foam board insulation has been installed on the walls of this crawl space creating a continuous R-10 of insulation on the foundation walls. A 2-inch viewing strip has been left at the top of the foundation wall per VA building code for termite inspections. The foam board is mechanically fastened to the wall and sealed at seams with foam.

The existing 6-mil vapor barrier in the crawl space does not fully cover the ground and is allowing moisture from the earth to rise into the crawl space. This is a concern because it raises the relative humidity (RH). When the RH is above 60% and there are warm temperatures, mold and mildew can begin to grow on the organic materials under the home including the wood floor joists. 

As part of an encapsulation system, we installed a 20-mil vapor barrier called CleanSpace. The heavy-duty vapor barrier is attached to the crawl space walls 6-8 inches above outside grade, wrapped around all piers, and sealed at all seams, sealing the crawl space off from the earth's moisture. CleanSpace is more durable than the previously installed 6-mil, which is about as thick as a trash bag, withstanding service persons crawling and working in the space.

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!
