Vancouver, WA Crawl Space Gets Encapsulated, Solves Two Problems
These Vancouver, WA homeowners wanted to improve the air quality in their home and also decrease their heating and cooling costs. When our Energy Consultant crawled around under their home, he found a crumpled up vapor barrier, evidence of animal infestations, fiberglass batting hanging down, and gaps around the sill plate on the foundation wall.
This couple moved forward with a crawl space encapsulation. It helps dramatically improve air quality since almost 50% of the air you are breathing in a one-story home moves in to your home from the crawl space. By having the crawl space sealed and insulated so well, it will also help decrease utility costs. Two problems solved with one solution!

Spray foam insulation is the best choice for insulation if you’re looking to increase your comfort & decrease your energy bills. Spray foam insulation is truly the best option for home insulation and here are a few reasons why. Spray Foam Insulation provides an air barrier due to its ability to fill gaps and cracks. It is also great at staying in the hard to reach areas because of its super-adhesive qualities. Spray foam insulation is also waterproof, unlike fiberglass and cellulose insulation. Water will not be able to pass through the foam which makes it an extremely durable and long-lasting product. Lastly, spray foam insulation is foolproof. Spray foam is sprayed as a liquid and then expands and hardens to fill voids and gaps. There is never any chance for an area to be missed or void to form. Once cured spray foam insulation will stay in place for decades to come and will never shift or settle like fiberglass. To ensure your home has the best insulation available and your energy bills are low, switch to spray foam insulation today!

Vancouver, WA Homeowners Able to Solve Two Crawl Space Issues With One Company
When this Vancouver, WA couple met us at a home show, they were looking for a company to help them with their crawl space. It was a mess and not keeping them comfortable inside their home.
Our Energy Consultant met with the homeowners to talk with them about what they wanted to accomplish, which included controlling water in the crawl space and making the house warmer in the winter.
The Energy Consultant suited up and climbed under their home. He found a lot of water! Fortunately, it hadn’t started growing mold, yet.
To solve the water issue and make the floors warmer in the winter, our 4-person insulation crew installed a SmartSump sump pump system plus drainage pipe to get that water out of the crawl space. They were able to tie it in to the existing gutter drain system. The existing drain pipe in the crawl space had to be capped so that water did not flow back into the crawl space.
The crew then removed all the old, inefficient fiberglass batting under the home. To help seal air leaks and make the floors inside the home warmer, the crew sprayed three inches thick of closed cell spray foam in the crawl space on the underfloor.
With one crew and one company, these homeowners were able to solve two issues!
