Crawl Space Weatherization Near Portland, Vancouver, Salem, Eugene, and Roseburg
Weatherizing all parts of your home in the Western Oregon and Southwest Washington area is essential to keep it protected from the elements on a year-round basis. That is particularly true for the crawl space, where frozen pipes could occur on a cold winter's night or unwanted hot or cool air could seep into your home because of insufficient insulation.
The idea behind weatherization is to protect the interior of your home against sunlight, precipitation, cold, and wind. Ideally, you do so by tweaking your home in ways to reduce energy consumption and optimize energy efficiency.

Ways to Weatherize Your Crawl Space
- Insulating & air sealing the rim joist. Left untreated, this thin layer of framing will allow heat to escape and frigid outside air to infiltrate. A professionally installed foam insulation upgrade eliminates these problems.
- Insulate crawl space walls with rigid foam. Many crawl spaces have fiberglass batt insulation installed between floor joists. Unfortunately, fiberglass insulation doesn’t perform well in crawl space environments. That is why we insulate crawl space walls with SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation. This high-performance rigid foam is immune to moisture damage and won’t lose its R-value or fall out of place once installed.
- Insulate crawl space floor. For greater comfort and energy savings, we can insulate a dirt crawl space floor with TerraBlock™ rigid foam insulation. This added layer of foam board insulation reduces heat loss in the wintertime.
