Spray Foam Insulation
Sill boxes completely sealed… Every nook and cranny!
After your new crawl space or basement floor has cured, we will insulate the foundation and sill boxes using closed cell polyurethane foam. Spray foam insulation is the most advanced insulation available, providing unparalleled energy efficiency. Closed-cell insulation is also an excellent moisture barrier. Spray foam has no seams or voids, and will expand into the smallest cavities giving a complete seal.
Closed Cell Foam Structure: Spray foam insulation feature closed cell structure and maintains the R-value over time. The extruded polystyrene insulation products offer the highest moisture resistance of any foam plastic insulation. The result, high compression strength and unparalleled resistance to water penetration. Other insulation products absorb moisture and create a breeding ground for mold and mildew while providing a home for unwanted critters.
R-Value: A measurement of resistance to heat flow. The greater the R-value, the greater the thermal efficiency and a small increase makes a big difference. Cavity insulation only insulates between the studs, leaving those studs un-insulated. Spray foam insulation covers the entire wall, providing a continuous layer of thermal protection and increasing the overall R-value and energy efficiency.
Radon, mold spores, and other allergens get locked out!
Whether it is your basement or your crawl space, Concrete Crawlspaces Corp. offers the driest, healthiest, water seepage solution.
