Crawl Space Insulation Replacement
PORTLAND OR – VANCOUVER, CAMAS & LONGVIEW WA
It is estimated that almost two out of three homes in the U.S are not properly insulated. This is due to low-quality materials used during the install, deterioration of the insulation over time, or the presence of moisture in the area. If your home is not properly insulated, we can help replace it.
The Importance of Crawl Space Insulation
Insulation in a home has many benefits, including protection from winter freezes that can affect the home’s pipes. It also reduces drafts and increases energy-efficiency.
Another important consideration is moisture. Dampness and humidity in the crawl space can lead to a multitude of problems, including mold, mildew, pests, and structural damage. Insulation provides a barrier against moisture to prevent these issues.
Our professionals can assess any damage that may already exist in your crawl space and eradicate it. New insulation is only one measure that we can implement to protect your home from moisture.
Other advantages of crawl space insulation include:
- Helps to lower your monthly utility bills
- Maintains the inside temperature of your home
- Allows less wear and tear on your home’s HVAC system
- Is a green solution, as it lessens the need for excessive heating and air conditioning emissions
- Increase in a home’s market value

Insulation Options Available
There are several different options when it comes to insulating your home’s crawl space. There are advantages and disadvantages to each, but we can help you make the best decision for your new install:
Fiberglass – Traditional fiberglass insulation comes in batts (rolls) and has non-flammable properties. It is also superior when it comes to water resistance. Our installation process involves fitting the batting in between joists, beams and studs making it as air-tight as possible.
Cellulose – Cellulose is a newer insulation option that is comprised of recycled paper that is chemically treated to resist moisture and pest damage.
Rock wool – Rock wool offers a convenient insulation option because it can be poured out of bags or blown into the areas that need to be insulated. However, rock wool does tend to settle over time, and this will diminish its insulation properties.
