Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Cold Crawl Space Insulated in Rockaway Park, Queens NY
A family in Rockaway Park, Queens had a sunroom with a 14 x 7 crawl space below it. The crawl space had a liner on the floor and fiberglass insulation, but it was still freezing cold and damp. During the winter, the sun room was too cold to go into as if there was a drafty window open. The family wanted to use the space to entertain family and friends, but no one wanted to stay in the room. It was wasting space, money, and constantly frustrated the household.
Quality 1st Basement Systems installed two types of crawl space insulation to keep the area warm. First, TerraBlock crawl space insulation was installed on floor. TerraBlock is made out of durable foam and keeps cold air from coming into the crawl space. Next, the crawl space was encapsulated with CleanSpace vapor barrier. The crawl space encapsulation system keeps out moisture, vapor barrier, and cold drafty air. SilverGlo crawl space insulation was installed on the walls. SilverGlo uses graphite to reflect and trap in heat. It is made out of waterproof materials that will not grow mold, resist mildew, and have a high R value. The graphite particles improve insular properties by 24%!
Now the family has a warm sunroom that they use for relaxing and hosting family and friends. As a bonus, they are saving money on their energy bills every month!
