This homeowner knew a new vapor barrier was needed, and also wanted to know if the insulation was good under his home.

Solution

After doing online research and finding us on the Home Advisor/Angie’s List platform, he called to set up an appointment. Good thing, because the insulation was hanging down in places (see photo) and that means it’s not doing any insulating! It looked like animals were under there ripping out insulation.

Our crew removed the damaged insulation, and re-installed with new batting. They used twine to hold it in place. The crew also removed the old, dirty vapor barrier and replaced it with a new 6-mil black plastic vapor barrier.
