What is Crawl Space Insulation? 

Crawl space insulation serves as a protective layer under your home. 

It plays a pivotal role in enhancing your home’s energy efficiency and air quality. Insulation in the crawl space adds a heat loss barrier and creates a space resistant to moisture, thus reducing mold and pest invasion. 

Installing effective crawl space insulation, like ExTremeBloc™, is vital, especially designed for the damp environments under homes. 

Combining insulation with crawl space encapsulation—sealing the area from external air and the ground—brings multiple benefits, including stable humidity, lower energy costs, and better air quality. 

At Innovative Basement Authority, crawl space repair is seen as integral to overall home health, contributing to a more enjoyable living environment and safeguarding your home’s structure.

These are indicators of moisture problems that, if neglected, can lead to significant damage. It’s crucial to get a free inspection from crawl space experts when you notice these signs. 

Is Crawl Space Insulation Necessary? 

Yes, insulating your crawl space is vital for your home’s protection. 

Delay in tackling insulation issues can escalate moisture and humidity, fostering mold growth and exacerbating respiratory conditions. Additionally, pests and rodents can infiltrate your home through uninsulated gaps. 

As part of our comprehensive home care approach at Innovative Basement Authority, we focus on early intervention to ensure your home’s structure and occupants’ health are preserved. 

We advise against DIY crawl space inspection or insulation due to potential hazards and inefficiency of general retail solutions. Rely on our professionals for precise assessment, repair, and protection of your crawl space. 

What Are the Different Kinds of Crawl Space Insulation? 

Various insulation types are available, but these are the most common for crawl spaces: 

Fiberglass Insulation 

Fiberglass is a common insulation choice in homes nationwide but is ill-suited for crawl spaces. 

Typically, this material is installed between the floor and rim joists in the crawl space to regulate temperature. However, it is prone to moisture damage, mold, and pests. 

Spray Foam Insulation 

Spray foam is applied to surfaces like crawl space walls and joists to insulate against extreme temperatures. Yet, it’s not ideal for crawl spaces. 

Often made of closed-cell spray foam, it’s more rigid and resilient but not impervious to damage. In damp crawl spaces, spray foam can harbor mold, emit odors, and attract termites. 

Foam Board Insulation

ExTremeBloc™ offers excellent insulation with its reflective surfaces and thin profile, outperforming other types like fiberglass. 

What Are the Benefits of Crawl Space Insulation? 

Installing suitable crawl space insulation provides several advantages: 

  • Moisture Management: It prevents moisture from entering, reducing mold, pests, and ground moisture-related issues. 
  • Energy Efficiency and Savings: Adequate insulation reduces the workload of heating and cooling systems, cutting down energy bills.
