Crawl Space Insulation and Vapor Barrier
Insulating the underside of your property can be a significant investment. This is why many people have second thoughts about it, while some only consider it when they notice problems in the area. However, this shouldn’t be the case.
By insulating your crawl space as soon as possible, you can prevent water from entering your property and causing damage not only to its structure but also your health. If you wait until you need to make repairs, you may end up spending more money.
At DryTek, we offer crawl space insulation and vapor barrier installation services. Our solutions are meant to suit each client’s budget and installed to last for decades.
Frequently Asked Questions
By insulating your crawl space, you can prevent safety hazards caused by structural damage, rust and corrosion, as well as faulty wiring. You also reduce the risk of health problems caused by mold and mildew growth and pest infestations.
If properly installed and maintained, the insulation in your crawl space can last for 20 years and more. However, some materials only last 15 years at maximum.
There is no single material that is the best for every situation. However, we normally use Eco-Batt R19 unfaced band board pocket batt insulation, as well as 4-inch thick expanded polystyrene wall insulation.
Insulating your crawl space will definitely lessen moisture, but we also suggest adding a vapor barrier or dehumidifier to prevent any chances of moisture entering the underside of your property.
