    Insulating Ductwork with Spray Foam in Ruther Glen, VA

    This homeowner had been experiencing rooms that were too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer, especially their bedroom. The space just wasn't comfortable. After completing an inspection of the home, we found that the homeowner was losing energy and heat through the attic. As part of the solution, the homeowner chose to insulate the main trunk line with spray foam insulation to help reduce the impact the extreme temperatures of the attic has on the ductwork and the conditioned air in it. They also removed all of the old insulation, air sealed and insulated with new, R-60 cellulose insulation.

    Crawl Space Vapor Barrier in Beaverdam, VA

    With concerns about the moisture damage in their crawl space, this Beaverdam, VA client oped to encapsulate their crawl space to help protect it from future damage.    In this phase of the project, we've treated the microbial growth on the floor joists and a heavy-duty CleanSpace Vapor Barrier has been installed. The liner is overlapped at all seams, wrapped and sealed around all piers, and mechanically attached to the foundation walls. The Foundation vents have also been sealed to prevent outside air carrying moisture from pouring into the space.

    Keeping moisture out of a Beaverdam, VA Crawl Space

    All crawl space vents, the sill plate, and any penetrations to the outside through the foundation walls are all sealed. The rim band is insulated and sealed with spray foam insulation to stop air infiltration, which can also help with drafts in the first level of the home. The crawl space is also sealed off from the earth's moisture with a CleanSpace vapor barrier, which is sealed at all seams, wrapped and sealed around all piers, and attached and sealed to the foundation walls. All of these steps are taken to keep as much moisture out of the crawl space as possible so we can control the relative humidity and protect the substructure of the home.

    Crawl Space Insulation & Vapor Barrier in Louisa, VA

    Moisture and high humidity in this crawl space resulted in mold and mildew growth and damage to the insulation. The homeowner wanted to encapsulate the space, so our team set to work cleaning out the crawl space, air sealing vents, the rim band, sill plate, and any other openings through the foundation wall to the outside. They treated the microbial growth with an antimicrobial, installed a new CleanSpace Vapor Barrier, applied Foam Board insulation to the foundation walls, and installed a dehumidifier to regulate the relative humidity.
