This home in Potomac, Maryland had moisture in the crawl space which was causing the insulation to sag. The homeowner called Complete Home Solutions to find a solution to their problem.

These homeowners had just recently purchased their house in Germantown. As the good homeowners that they are, they had a thorough home inspection done prior to moving in. One of the things that the home inspector noted was the lack of insulation in the crawl space. Such a crawl space can lead to discomfort issues, health problems, and unreasonable utility bills.
The homeowners requested a CHS home comfort specialist come out to their new house and give them the best solutions for their crawl space. What we did for them was to bring their crawl space into the building envelope (preventing unwanted air from leaking into the living space from the crawl). We did this by applying a vapor barrier on the floor and up the walls (sealing along the edges) and applying closed-cell spray foam insulation on the walls. These homeowners are now ready to move into their newly comfortable home!
This homeowner in North Potomac asked us for help with advice on making their home more comfortable and advice on how to keep the home at a more stable temperature. They were interested in having their attic and crawl space assessed. Our energy auditor, Merv, visited the home and discussed solutions with these homeowners. One of the recommendations was to air seal the rim and band joists in the basement area with 3" of closed cell spray foam insulation. As you can see by the pictures, the rim and band joists were not air sealed prior to our work on the home. We sealed and insulated the rim joists which are major sources of heat loss in the home. This will make their home more energy efficient and comfortable and help keep the temperature in the house more even!
