Spray Foam Insulation
The Basement Doctor™ crawl space encapsulation includes using a spray foam insulation that is installed on the rim joist (the area where your basement or crawl space foundation wall meets the floor). This is a vital part of a proper crawl space encapsulation system. Not only does this prohibit exterior air from entry, it also keeps the air you have running through your HVAC system from getting a differing temperature. Therefore, with properly installed closed cells, you will feel the difference in both your living space and in your energy expense. Save money, live comfortably.
Insulation - not all products work the same. Spray foam insulation installed in crawl spaces will deliver real savings on your energy costs. Spray foam is quick to install since The Basement Doctor™ has the proper equipment, cures hard in a closed cell, and will prevent air infiltration. This foam is inorganic, meaning it will not let moisture in. It is closed cell in nature, so unlike fiber insulation, it won't rot or wear out over time. Spray foam insulation creates both a thermal and air flow barrier system in one.
The featured benefits of having spray foam insulation installed on rim joists are:
- Lower utility bills
- Saving energy and conserving resources
- Deter air flow and deter temperature fluctuation
- Stop bugs and pests from entering your living space
- Reduce moisture
