Crawl Space Insulation Replacement & Installation

installing crawl space insulation

Are cold floors, drafts, and high energy bills common in your home? The root cause might be more surprising than you think: moisture and energy inefficiencies due to poor crawl space insulation.

Addressing these signs with professional crawl space solutions is crucial for protecting your residence. Without them, your home is at risk of mold growth and pest infestations.

Comprehensive crawl space encapsulation and insulation services from Tar Heel Basement Systems provide a healthier, more energy-efficient home. We are the leading experts in crawl space care, serving across the Raleigh, Winston-Salem, and Wilmington areas.

What is Crawl Space Insulation?

Crawl space insulation, which may include thick fiberglass or varying foam types, is installed between the floor joists or on the walls of the area beneath the home. This insulation regulates temperature, significantly impacting your home’s energy efficiency and indoor air quality. It also provides a barrier against heat loss and creates a moisture-resistant crawl space environment.

Our crawl space encapsulation techniques, such as vapor barrier and insulation installation, stabilize humidity levels, reduce heating and cooling costs, and improve indoor air quality. Crawl space encapsulation is essential to Tar Heel Basement Systems’ holistic home maintenance solutions.

Signs You Need Better Crawl Space Insulation 

Determining whether you need crawl space insulation is difficult since this area is typically out of sight and out of mind. We don’t recommend entering this hazardous area, but signs of potential failing insulation include:

Ignoring problem signs leads to crawl space moisture damage and expensive repairs. When you notice these issues or suspect a problem, contact a crawl space professional like Tar Heel Basement Systems. 

Why You Need Crawl Space Insulation 

As you can tell from the list of problem signs, neglecting crawl space insulation can have several detrimental effects. These issues extend beyond the crawl space, threatening the safety of your home and your family’s health. Insulating your crawl space is vital for safeguarding what’s most important.

We discourage DIY insulation attempts, which fail to address the core problems. Professional installation by Tar Heel Basement Systems is a reliable and thorough solution. Our proactive approach is integral to our comprehensive home care strategy.

The three most common crawl space insulation materials used in Raleigh, Wilmington, and Winston-Salem include: 

  • Fiberglass: Fiberglass is a popular insulation material, but it is unsuitable for crawl spaces. It is prone to moisture absorption, mold, and pest infestations. 
  • Spray Foam: Spray foam is another crawl space insulation option, applied directly to the area’s surfaces. While more durable, spray foam is not the best choice for crawl spaces due to potential mold growth and chemical odors.
  • Foam Board: Our exclusive ExTremeBloc™ foam board insulation is an effective choice, with pre-cut panels installed on interior crawl space walls. It features heat-reflective insulation surfaces and an excellent value.
