A vented crawl space with a dirt floor can cause many problems within the home. Homeowner's in Grasonville, MD, wanted to solve this problem.
Vented crawl spaces leak warm and cool air through the vents. This causes condensation and high humidity levels in the crawl space. This allows the insulation to sag away from the sub floor, making it useless. This creates odors, mold, drafts, cold floors and high utility costs.
To solve this homeowner's common problem, Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva will install the CleanSpace Encapsulation System. First, drainage matting is applied to the floor of the crawl space. The drainage matting is dimpled to create air space for water to flow. TerraBlock Insulation is applied on top of the drainage matting to keep the crawl space insulated. SilverGlo insulation is applied to the walls of the crawl space. The vents are installed with insulated vent covers and finally the CleanSpace liner is installed on top of the TerraBlock insulation.
This results in lower humidity, warmer floors, less drafts and lower utility costs.
