The problem with this crawl space is that it isn't properly sealed from bugs, condensation, mold and mildew, and outside air. All of these sinister ingredients is part of a recipe for strucutural damage.
Here is a supporting beam that is rotting away. This is the culprit for doors not closing and cracks in walls inside the home.
Here is a pump that was previously installed in the crawl space. It was not installed properly because there are exposed wires right above standing water.
The CleanSpace liner is completely sealed over the floors and walls to fully isolate your home environment from the earth. The result is an attractive, bright, tough, impervious liner- and a healthy home above it.
SilverGlo is made specifically for basements and crawl spaces in mind. Tiny graphite particles permeate its foam insulation to give it that silver shine. These tiny particles reflect heat and lower the material's conductivity for superior R value per inch. In addition to resisting heat conduction, SilverGlo boasts a radiant barrier, which reflects heat back into your crawl space to heat a significant amount on heating/cooling bills.
After the crawl space is encapsulated, you won't need to insulate under the floor boards because the crawl space will retain enough heat to keep your floors warm.
A Great Cacapon, West Virginia vacation home was suffering from extremely high humidity in their crawl space.
When the crawl space has high humidity, you can bet there is damage to the wood under the home. Because of the high humidity level in a dirt crawl space, cool surfaces such as the earth at 55 degrees, concrete and metal surfaces will sweat with water vapor condensing out of the air. This causes wood and insulation to rot, smell and provide a water source for critters.
Basement Systems of West Virgina worked on providing a completely encapsulated crawl space to the home. The CleanSpace liner is used to isolate the home from the earth completely and permanently. The liner is a heavy 20-mil-thick material similar to a pool liner. It is also manufactured with an antimicrobial additive called UltraFresh. All of the products used are inorganic, so they won't rot and keep your crawl space dry for a lifetime.
