Servicing Michigan's Lower Peninsula & Greater Toledo
Are cold floors and freezing pipes on the agenda every year when it turns cold?
Poor or no insulation in your crawl space allows the cold outside air to leak through, causing various problems during the cold Michigan winters.
Replacing your old crawl space insulation with spray foam creates an air seal to keep the cold air out - preventing pipes from freezing and reducing your family’s complaints of cold floors.
For the spray foam to do its job properly, the old fiberglass insulation will need to be removed. Our removal crew will roll up the old fiberglass, placing it in large bags, and then dispose of it. It’s a dirty job, but our removal crews are experts at getting the space nice and ready for the spray foam insulation installation.
If there are ductwork and mechanicals present in the crawl space, we recommend laying plastic down on the ground and then spraying the crawl space walls as well as the rim joist. Doing this will seal off the foundation of your home, allowing the crawl space to be around the same temperature as the rest of the home.
An added bonus of this installation method is that the heat from the mechanicals in the crawl space will move freely through the floors, adding even more comfort.
If there are no mechanicals or ductwork present in the crawl space, crews would instead spray the crawl space ceiling to air seal the crawl space completely from the rest of the home.
