Case Studies: Warrensville, NC- Sealed Crawl Space Transformation

Friday, January 13th, 2017 By Jaimie Hooker


Challenge

Dirt floor crawl spaces with open foundation vents and a thin vapor barrier are signs of larger problems to come. Over time this Warrensville, NC crawl space had become filled with moisture partnered with a high energy bill. Many homeowners in the Northwest Region of North Carolina rely heavily on their home’s heating system during the cold winter months. Energy bills typically rise during this time with the unsealed crawl space being the main culprit.

Solution

Tar Heel Basement Systems’ energy-saving crawl space encapsulation system provides an exceptional solution by reducing moisture and your home’s heat bill. The durable CrawlSeal 20mil liner with polyester cord reinforcement provides complete separation of the home from the exposed dirt below, preventing ground moisture from reaching the living area. X-Grade Crawl Space Insulation panels work collectively with CrawlSeal by preventing outside air from entering the crawl space through porous foundation walls and vents. The graphite particles reflect heat back into the crawl space for maximum energy-efficiency. Conditioning the now closed cell to prevent mold growth is easily achieved with the self-draining dehumidifier.

Installation of the Crawl Space Encapsulation System was a success in just one day, instantly providing the Warrensville, NC homeowners with an energy-efficient crawl space for many winters to come!
