Conditioned Sealed Crawl Space
Insulation Solutions provides the ultimate conditioned sealed crawl space
design that will transform this normally damp pest infested area into a nice
mold and mildew free space that dramatically improves the energy efficiency,
comfort and indoor air quality of the home. Our conditioned sealed
crawl is a 3 stage process that includes 3 separate trips to the job site.
The first stage includes completely encapsulating the piers with 12 mil
poly to seal out any possibility of moisture wicking through the block and
into the crawl space. In addition, we insulate the walls with 1-1/2” of
closed-cell foam and permanently seal 12 mil poly to the walls of the crawl
space. A flap is left around the base of the wall and piers to attach to the
floor poly at the end of construction.
After the house is under roof, Insulation Solutions will come back to the
job site and lay 6 mil poly across the floor of the crawl space. This
prevents the growth of mold and mildew during the construction process when
the house frequently gets wet.
The final stage of the process comes when the house is completed. At that
time Insulation Solutions will come to the job site a third time. This time
we spread 12 mil poly over the 6 mil and seal it permanently to the flaps
around the walls and piers with water proof sealing tape. Also any seams
will be overlapped and sealed in the same manner. Once completed this
space is as clean and comfortable as any room in the home. It will provide a
much healthier, mold free and energy efficient home.
