Old insulation. Moisture evaporating from the ground. Outdoor air coming in through crawl space vents. All of these things allow scary specimen like mold spores, rot, and structural deterioration to make it's way into your crawl space, making it look much more creepy than clean. Here at Connecticut Basement Systems, we offer solutions to all of your crawl space problems! Here are some tips to keep your space looking a little less scary:
1. CleanSpace® Crawl Space Vapor Barrier: This durable, bright white crawl space liner installs on the walls and floors, preventing water vapor and humidity from passing through. By keeping your crawl space dry, you protect your structure and insulation from mold and rot.
2. SmartPipe™ or WaterGuard®: Thanks to its unique “d” profile, SmartPipe™ can collect water from foundation walls and from a dirt crawl space floor. If the crawl space has a concrete floor, either or DryTrack drain lines are recommended.
3. EverLast™: EverLast™ crawl space doors are made from ½-in.-thick plastic that won’t shrink, crack, leak or require painting like wood doors do.
4. SilverGlo® rigid foam insulation: Thanks to a patented graphite infusion process, SilverGlo™ has higher R-value than standard EPS foam (R-11 for a 2-in.-thick panel). Every SilverGlo™ panel also comes with a shiny integral radiant barrier that reflects heat for enhanced energy efficiency.
Don't feel like you need to run and hide from your crawl space! With all of these products, it is sure to go from scary to speckless! Give us a call today, and we'll get one of our system design specialists out for a FREE quote!
