Crawl Space Repair Case Studies: Crawl Space Insulation in Colonia, NJ
This homeowner had a dirty, concrete crawl space. He contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems because he wanted to have the crawl space encapulated and insulated. Upon inspection, Collin, found that the crawl space was not only very dirty, but very cold. There was a lot of debris in the crawl space which can be a breeding ground for mold. The walls of the crawl space were dark and cold. The homeowner also explained to Collin that the floor above the crawl space was always cold. Although there were no signs of water in the crawl space, the crawl space was cold and unusable.
The team installed the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system, TerraBlock, Drainage Matting, and a crawl space vent cover. TerraBlock is high-performance crawl space insulation that includes a durable moisture barrier. TerraBlock can be installed directly over any type of crawl space floor, providing a clean, dry surface that helps the home feel more comfortable and reduce heating and cooling bills by making the home more energy efficient. To provide drainage in this crawl space, the installation team installed drainage matting that directs water to a drain. SilverGlo crawl space insulation was installed to reflect heat back into the crawl space to keep the crawl space from being too cold. Crawl space vent covers were also installed to seal out cold and humid air from the crawl space. CleanSpace crawl space lining was also used to isolate the crawl space from humidity and insulate the crawl space from the cold earth. CleanSpace comes with an antimicrobial formula to deter the growth of mold.
The customer was very pleased by the efficiency of the Quality 1st installation team in helping him obtain a dry, usable, energy-efficient crawl space that he can now use as storage. Quality 1st Basement Systems provided this homeowner and family a nice, neat, and clean crawl space that will no longer cause their home to be uncomfortable and saved the homeowner money off their monthly heating and cooling bills.
