The exposed fiberglass insulation made the area drafty and untidy.
The dirt and debris in the crawlspace did not allow the space to be utilized in anyway. The team's goal was to create a space that is clean, easily accessed and benefited the home's climate.
The Spray Foam was applied to even the tiniest of spaces in the crawlspace, providing an R-Value of 7 per square inch. Once the Spray Foam has cured it will not move, shift or settle.
Drainage matting was installed under the CleanSpace vapor barrier. The drainage matting prevents water from pooling underneath the vapor barrier.
The CleanSpace vapor barrier reduces moisture, humidity and is also waterproof. CleanSpace is a long lasting, durable vapor barrier ideal for any below grade space.
The team installed an air tight access door for the crawlspace. To enter the crawlspace, simply unscrew the four anchor knobs and then remove the cover.
The crawlspace door is incredibly convenient and compact, making it very user-friendly for the owners. Overall, the homeowners were absolutely thrilled with the results of this project and will continue to reap the benefits of their energy efficient crawlspace.
The crawlspace of this Monroe, CT home was in very poor condition. The old fiberglass insulation was exposed and hanging from the ceiling. The entire crawlspace was covered in dust and debris, making the area unusable. So, the homeowners reached out to Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut, the team got right to work making their dream crawlspace a reality!
The homeowners wanted a crawlspace that was pleasing to the eye; as well as energy efficient. After removing the dirt and debris from the space, the team was ready to begin. To provide maximum efficiency the Dr. Energy Saver of Connecticut team started by encapsulating the whole area with our CleanSpace crawlspace encapsulation system. Our encapsulation system is made of 100% waterproof materials to prevent moisture from getting into the crawlspace. In addition, the team installed an entry way for easy access to the space.
