A crawl space is an underground space that we tend to forget, but if it is poorly maintained, it is a problem that influences the general condition of the house.
It is a myth to believe that you need a heater in the crawl space. Moist air is very expensive to heat and water will not be removed from the air. It takes a good dehumidification system.
Poor crawl spaces influence the structure of the house and the quality of the air you breathe. Moisture and mildew attack organic materials and infect the air you breathe.
The SilverGlo is an insulation that we install on the walls. It contains graphite particles that reflect heat inside and help control your energy consumption.
The crawl space access door should be closed with inorganic, waterproof material to prevent vapors and water infiltration, and bacteria that would infect the space.
The ventilation hatches allow moist air to enter the crawl space and infect the underground space. We must close these traps, dehumidify and purify the air.
Once the insulation and the CleanSpace system are installed, combined with the SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier, the crawl space is transformed into a dry, healthy and usable space.
SilverGlo Insulation and TerraBlock Insulation are specially designed to insulate the house from the earth and to preserve the heat inside to reduce energy costs in air conditioning and heating on the upper floors.
Here is an insulation and encapsulation project that we completed at Terrasse-Vaudreuil. These customers contacted us following the inspection report of their insurance company. Being new owners, this was the first time they bought a house with a crawl space and did not know what it was, and how to fix it.
Our company is specialized in this field and we offer a complete solution and a range of products specially designed for this purpose. Here are the pictures of the project!
