Typical Crawl Space Insulation Procedure
Evaluating the Space:
Before insulating, our professional installer will examine the crawl space to determine the type and amount of insulating materials needed. We will inspect for wetness and damage. Our installer will check the crawl area for moisture, mold, and other conditions that could affect insulator installation. They will also evaluate crawl space ventilation and suggest changes.
Before installing the insulator, the crawl space must be cleaned and readied. Clear the area of all dust, dirt, and debris. It may include removing damaged or contaminated insulators.
After preparing the crawl space, apply an insulator. Fiberglass batts, spray foam, and rigid foam boards are crawl space insulation options. The home needs to determine the insulator type.
Sealing Air Leaks:
Installing insulators on seal pipes, vents, and other openings with foam sealant or other materials prevents air from entering or leaving the crawl space, improving home energy efficiency. Air leaks are one reason to insulate a crawl space.
Placing a Vapor Barrier:
In humid Kannapolis, NC, a vapor barrier prevents moisture from entering the crawl area. A vapor barrier protects the insulation from the ground by covering it with plastic. A vapor barrier covers the crawl space floor and walls. Moreover, a vapor barrier is made of heavy-duty polyethylene to withstand crawl space conditions. Then our installer will cut and glue the vapor barrier to fit the crawl area.
