  • Encapsulating a Henrico, VA Crawl Space

    Encapsulating a Henrico, VA Crawl Space

    We met this homeowner at a home show, where they asked us to come to inspect their crawl space because they were interested in encapsulating it due to moisture and mildew-mold concerns. This section of the crawl space is under an addition. The vapor barrier is unsealed, allowing moisture to rise from the ground and contribute to high relative humidity. Microbial growth is beginning on the floor joists and the fiberglass insulation is beginning to sag and fall. The old materials have been removed, vents sealed, and the sill plate and rim band have been sealed as well. The CleanSpace vapor barrier has been installed with all seams overlapped and sealed. The moisture barrier is also run up the walls 6-8 inches above outside grade. The walls are prepped for spray foam insulation to be applied. 
  • Insulating Knee Walls in Richmond, VA

    Insulating Knee Walls in Richmond, VA

    The conditioned space shared with these knee walls was sweltering in the summer and freezing in the winter due to sharing a wall with an unconditioned attic space. We installed insulation in the wall cavities and covered it with Tyvec to create an air barrier and better insulate the wall. We also installed insulation on the floor of the space to prevent air loss from the room below.

    Sealing a Crawl Space in West Point, VA

    The ground cover in this crawl space was a 6-mil, a similar thickness to a trash bag, it is easily ripped and displaced. Because it is unsealed and has tears, the 6-mil ground cover allows moisture from the earth to affect the crawl space raising the relative humidity, damaging insulation, and causing microbial growth.  After removing the 6-mil, we installed a 20-mil heavy-duty vapor barrier called CleanSpace, and is similar to the thickness of a pool liner. CleanSpace has a built-in Antimicrobial called UltraFresh. When we install the vapor barrier, we overlap and seal all seams, seal the liner to the walls 6-8 inches above outside grade, and wrap and seal all piers. By sealing the CleanSpace at all of these points, we are able to isolate the crawl space from the earth's moisture.
