This is the old insulation that was removed. The insulation was falling down because it was wet due to a vented crawl space.
Old Insulation causing air drafts
One of the areas that leak a lot of air into the home is the rim joist. In this photo we used spray foam to insulate and air seal the rim joist.
This is our CleanSpace encapsulation system which consists of 2" SilverGlo foam on the walls, drainage mat on the floor, terrablock foam insulation, and then covered with a 20 mil seven ply cleanspace liner.
For added protection we installed a smartdrain with a water watch alarm. The purpose for the smart drain is to alarm the homeowner if there is ever a water leak into the crawl space due to a plumbing leak.
The room over the crawl space in this Allison Park, PA home was cold and drafty. We were able to remove the old insulation and install our CleanSpace encapsulation system. The floors are now warm and the home owner has gained some room for storage.
