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.
Our Production Team sealed the crawl space to keep moisture out and put the insulation back in place to keep the floors warm and keep drafts out this winter.
At Complete Home Solutions, we deal with a lot of crawl spaces that have water damage, which leads to nasty situations. In this case John's crawl space was not in bad shape when we entered, however, it was not set up to keep external temperatures from entering the crawl space and affecting the comfort of his home. On the day of the job our crew began by installing our Clean space vapor barrier which when bolted to the walls of the crawl space creates a seal that prevents any moisture or pest from entering the crawl from below. Following the installation of the vapor barrier, our Technicians used a 2 part closed cell spray foam to insulate and seal the walls. This process restricts any air from coming through the vents or cinder blocks in the crawl. The final step of this encapsulation is to install a dehumidifier that regulates the humidity to a consistent 50-55%.These improvements will help the temperatures throughout the home, as well as prevent any moisture damage that may arise in the future.

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!
