Home Made More Comfortable with New Crawl Space Insulation
Completion date: July 25, 2018
Location: Stayton, OR
Since their home was not comfortable in the winter, these Stayton, OR homeowners knew something was needed in the crawl space.
This couple found us on Home Advisor, saw our reviews, and called for an appointment.
After talking with them about what they wanted to accomplish with the insulation, our Energy Consultant climbed under the house. He found insulation falling down (see photo). Fiberglass batts will eventually sag, and it if there have been animals under the home (and there had), they will play the game of “pull down the sagging fiberglass to make nesting material.”
The couple chose to have our insulation crew remove the old insulation and replace with R-25 batts. (There are other longer-lasting solutions, yet this worked best for them.) It definitely made a difference in the comfort of their home.
