High Humidity Making Your Insulation Droop?

Friday, June 26th, 2015 By Jaimie Hooker

Fiberglass insulation in a crawl space with moisture is a very bad idea. The insulation will become heavy over time, collecting all of the water in the air and begin to droop, making it a perfect home for mold and critters.

What other options are there for insulation? X-Grade Crawl Space Insulation!

Once the crawl space becomes encapsulated with all previously open vents sealed and the earth separated from the rest of the home above, there is one last step to make it a fully close cavity and energy efficient. Unlike traditional fiberglass insulation that sits in the floor joists, X-Grade Crawl Space Insulation goes on the walls and rim joists. The 2″ insulation panels are completely water-resistant and are made completely inorganically so it will not host mold growth. X-Grade Crawl Space Insulation got its name because of the silver lining made of tiny graphite particles that reflect heat back into the crawl space for maximum energy savings!
