Falling insulation, energy loss, dampness and a deteriorating vapor barrier were all components of a home with open foundation vents. Unfortunately, for these Stokesdale, NC homeowners, their crawl space became a home for moisture and beginning stages of mold. The new HVAC system was having to work extra hard to keep the home cool during the summer months and heated during the winter months. Being pro-active, the homeowners wanted to have their crawl space sealed to save on their utility bill each month.
Tar Heel Basement Systems removed the 6mil vapor barrier, debris and sealed each foundation vent. The 20mil CrawlSeal Encapsulation System completely sealed the home from the exposed dirt below, while the X-Grade Crawl Space Insulation panels created an energy saving space by keeping outside air out and reflecting heat back into the crawl space. Unlike the traditional insulation that was filled with moisture, the antimicrobial properties of the CrawlSeal and X-Grade Crawl Space Insulation will prevent the products from falling victim to moisture or mold! The homeowners now have a clean, dry and energy-efficient storage space below their home.
