Sunday, December 31st, 2017 by Elizabeth Freeman


Freezing Temperatures Are Here

The recent drop in temperatures across the state can have homeowners worrying about frozen pipes, cold/drafty floors, and losing heat.

So how can you fix all these problems in your crawl space? At Basement Systems of West Virginia, we have the products that will help you avoid expensive damage from frozen pipes, keep your home warmer, and help you save money on your energy bills.

Encapsulating Your Crawl SpaceEncapsualted Crawl Space

One of the best ways to protect your crawl space is to completely encapsulate it. We use an extremely durable liner that is placed on the floor and walls of the crawl space. The liner will seal your home from the Earth, keeping water vapor, humidity, and pests out of your crawl space. Getting the liner installed will also help keep mold and mildew out of the crawl space. If you have the liner installed, it will help keep the air healthy, give your warmer floors, and a dry crawl space.

 

 

Insulating Your Crawl Space

Crawl Space InsulationAnother solution is to have our SilverGlo insulation installed in your crawl space. This will help keep your crawl space warm and create an energy-efficient space. SilverGlo is placed on the walls and in the rim joist, where most heat is lost in a crawl space. Our insulation is able to hold back moisture from your crawl space walls and direct any water to your drainage and sump pump systems. We recommend getting your crawl space wall insulated because it will be warmer, and as a result using less energy to heat your home, saving you money. It will also help keep pipes warmer and they won't be prone to bursting or freezing.

At Basement Systems of West Virginia, we have what you need to protect your crawl space during the extremely cold winter months. Our warrantied products will keep your crawl space warm and dry, giving you peace of mind.
