Top Benefits of Crawl Space Insulation
Spray foam crawl space insulation forms an airtight seal which lowers energy loss and increases comfort. Proper crawl space insulation helps keep pipes and ductwork from losing heat and offers protection against freezing. Insulated crawl spaces are more resistant to moisture and condensation which can lead to mold or mildew.
Insulation doesn’t last forever and older installs may become damaged over time. Water leaks, mold, pest, and wildlife infestations can degrade existing insulation. Because crawl spaces are hard to access this type of damage is easily overlooked and can cause problems that grow over the years. Replacing old insulation with spray foam can help to form a protective barrier that is moisture and pest resistant. In new construction, a spray foam crawl space install can give your building durable and long-lasting protection against heat loss and condensation damage.
Fire Protection for Small Spaces
Crawl spaces are hard to check and easy to overlook. Proper insulation can offer fire resistance in this important area of your structure. Depending on the materials used, crawl space insulation can be fire-resistant or fireproof as requirements dictate. Commercial buildings are subject to strict bylaws, and the right crawl space insulation can help your project stay compliant.
Spray foam insulation can be treated for fire resistance or fireproofing depending on need. Professional insulation installers can make recommendations that fit your insulation and fireproofing needs. Different materials and approaches can be used and if you have specific fireproofing needs, schedule a professional assessment where we can evaluate your project and suggest the best fire-resistant or fireproof crawl space insulation choices.
Increase Your Building’s Value
Adding insulation can improve your building’s energy efficiency which can improve property values. Replacing old insulation with new material can help your building meet current energy efficiency standards. A durable material like spray foam insulation has a long lifespan, and a new install can offer decades of maintenance-free service. Protecting your structure with new spray foam insulation will not only lower utility bills, but it can protect your structure from the hazards of water condensation for years. Crawl spaces with airtight spray foam insulation will also add comfort and eliminate drafts near the floor.
Choosing Professional Insulation Installers
Installing insulation requires training and expertise. This is especially true when dealing with tight spaces and demanding bylaws of crawl space insulation installs in residential or commercial environments. This type of installation is best handled by professionals. Professional installers will understand commercial insulation and fire-resistance bylaws, and have the experience to complete your installation correctly and within your project’s budget.
Professional knowledge and experience are key during refits and remodels. Old insulation poses health hazards and must be removed before modern insulation can be installed. All old insulation will have to be removed and disposed of or recycled in accordance with environmental and safety regulations. Asbestos is often present in older buildings and must be handled carefully with the correct protective gear. Because of the tight spaces involved in crawl space work, it can be tempting to cut corners when it comes to personal protection. Professionals have enough training and hands-on experience to complete these jobs safely and correctly.
