Crawl spaces often face issues due to mold, dampness, and cold temperatures. Many of these issues can be addressed by installing crawl space insulation. Choosing insulation for a crawl space can depend on whether your crawl space is ventilated or unventilated. TruTeam’s insulation experts can inspect your crawl space and recommend the right insulation product for your needs.
TruTeam carries a wide variety of insulation materials including spray foam, rigid board, and much more. TruTeam also sells vapor barriers which can be essential in blocking moisture penetration in a crawl space. One of the considerations in insulating a crawl space is whether it is ventilated or unventilated. For assistance in insulating your crawl space, contact the insulation professionals at TruTeam today.
Crawl spaces have many spaces that can be addressed with insulation. Rim joists can be insulated and air sealed; this perimeter area is frequently a source of air infiltration. Insulation and vapor barriers can be installed along the floor, even if it is dirt. Insulation should also be added along the crawl space’s exterior foundation walls.
As a nationwide network of hand-picked and proven installers, TruTeam provides superior service and value on insulation and building materials combined with strong local relationships and national resources. We help keep projects on schedule and on budget through professional installation from respected local contractors and turnkey solutions.
Many homeowners neglect their crawl spaces when looking to make their homes more energy efficient and comfortable. Adding insulation can improve a crawl space and home.
One of the biggest issues in a crawl space is moisture which can lead to mold, mildew, and odors. If your crawl space has a dirt floor, the first step in insulation installation may be installing a polyurethane vapor barrier to keep moisture out. Contact TruTeam and we can evaluate your crawl space, and recommend insulation, vapor barriers, dehumidifiers, and more.
Many crawl spaces have minimal insulation, particularly in older homes. Nine out of 10 homes are under-insulated. Fiberglass batt was commonly installed between crawl space joists, but over time that insulation can be damaged by moisture, pests, and more. TruTeam can help retrofit existing crawl spaces with updated, effective insulation products. We can remove old insulation, seal gaps and cracks, and install vapor barriers and insulation to address any problem areas.
Adding insulation to a crawl space can improve the energy efficiency of your entire home – saving you up to $200 a year in heating and cooling costs. Sealing and insulating a crawl space can prevent moisture and make homes more comfortable. The floors above a well insulated crawl space will not feel cold during the winter, and you’ll have a better thermal barrier between the interior of your home and extreme weather outside.
