Musty Crawl Space In Need Of Encapsulation
This crawl space had an odor and commonly had mice in it. Something needed to happen so that this lake cottage could remain a place of tranquility.
Joist Shows Signs Of Water Leakage
Judging from the coloration of this floor joists, some leakage from the floor above may have been contributing to the mustiness of the crawl space. Addressing any plumbing issues and waterproofing the space will prevent mustiness in the future.
TerraBlock Insulation Adds R-Value To Crawl Space
TerraBlock is a 3/4" foam insulation with a vapor barrier on both sides and can help keep the crawl space warm despite the cold ground underneath. The ground could be as cold as 55 degrees below the encapsulation system.
SilverGlo Insulation Keeps Floors Toasty
SilverGlo insulation is placed on the block walls to help keep warmth in and the cold out. Spray foam seals the joints and top of the insulation to make sure that no gaps are left for heat to escape through.
Finished Crawl Space Is Bright, Dry, and Warm
Once our durable CleanSpace encapsulation is complete and the insulation process is done, this lake cottage can enjoy warm floors in the winter and will be free of any mustiness. The CleanSpace enapsulation system provides a barrier separating the home and building materials above from any vapors or water seepage that may enter through the block walls or through the ground.
