While fiberglass insulation is common, particularly in older homes, it can lead to a host of mold and moisture issues. Fiberglass insulation is highly permeable, meaning it attracts moisture and humidity. Once enough moisture is absorbed, the insulation begins to fall off the ceiling in clumps.
Carolina Basement Systems suggests installing a type of insulation that is a long-term solution. This requires it to only be long term but and effective. If you insulate the ceiling of the crawl space, you are constantly fighting conditions inside the crawl space as well as outside of the crawl space. So not only does it turn into debris, it also is having to work overtime. We offer a patented solution that is much more effective and permanent.
That solution is SilverGlo™ Crawl Space Wall Insulation, which is composed of small graphite particles. These particles reflect heat and lower conductivity, providing superior R-value per inch. SilverGlo™ also directs heat back into your crawlspace. This translates into impressive energy savings! To further conserve savings, the insulation can be installed along the perimeter of your foot framing system.
To keep heat inside—and lower energy costs—consider SilverGlo™ insulation. Our experienced inspectors would be pleased to provide a no-cost estimate and discuss our other energy-saving measures.
