Why You Need Tidewater’s Crawl Space Solutions in Hampton Roads
So why does your crawl space need to be insulated? The Tidewater area is considered a mild-humid climate. If hot, humid air enters your crawl space, it may cause many problems such as mold, fungus, mildew and wood rot. This can lead to damaged duct work, equipment and harmful air entering your home. If your home isn’t well insulated and properly vented, moisture from the ground can cause a lot of water damage and other problems that are a pain to deal with and can be pretty expensive to fix.
If you have a ventilated crawl space, our insulation contractors can insulate the subflooring and between the floor joists. If your crawl space is unventilated, it’s generally recommended to insulate the walls. Whether your crawl space is ventilated or unventilated, sealing is extremely important. Air sealing and insulation are services that often go hand in hand because air leaks can really compromise the performance of insulation. This is especially true when it comes to crawl space insulation—a lot of air leaks in and out of crawl spaces in homes!

- Can eliminate problems like frozen pipes, wood rot, mold and mildew growth, contaminated air, and water infiltration
- Boosts the market value of your house—most buyers value energy efficiency above other things
- Promotes a healthier environment—reduced energy consumption leads to reduced carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions
- Improves the overall performance of your HVAC systems by helping your home stay comfortable
What Insulation Do You Use in a Crawl Space?
We believe that foam, rather than fiberglass, insulation is the best choice when it comes to your home’s crawl space, and can be installed against the crawl space walls rather than between floor joints. One reason we prefer foam over fiberglass insulation is fiberglass has a tendency to absorb moisture, which poses a risk for mold. It can also harbor mice and tends to sag or fall out of place easily.
Unlike fiberglass, foam insulation does not absorb moisture or allow air to pass through, ensuring that it stays free of mold or mildew and works consistently to keep your home energy-efficient.
