This homeowner was experiencing cold drafts and dampness in the home and reached out to us for assistance. We found that the root problem was coming from the crawlspace. Our crew was able to provide multiple services to not only insulate the home from drafts, but to upgrade the crawlspace and prevent any further issues.
We sprayed mold treatment on all wood services. Dug trenches, laid pipe and installed a sump pump to remove water seeping into the crawlspace area. Laid down 20 mil cord reinforced liner over the entire crawlspace and sealed it at every seam. Sprayed a class II vapor barrier closed cell foam to the walls and around all edges of the liner which created a complete crawlspace encapsulation. We also installed a dehumidifier and a radon detection system.
This upgrade to this crawlspace not only solved the issue with the cold drafts and dampness in the home, it has also made the home more energy efficient and has provided a warmer more desirable environment.
