Crawl Space Insulation
Why should you care about insulating your crawl space? Is it a worthy investment for you home?
Well, there’s really one BIG reason to do it:
- Reduce your energy bills both for AC during hot months and Furnace when it gets colder. Efficiency improvement for both of them goes hand in hand with reduction of the amount of money you pay for electricity.
With the high electricity prices in the Hampton Roads, homeowners are looking for ways to consume less energy and get more out of what they do use. Some go with solar panel and other alternative sources of energy.
We invite you to explore the possibilities of having your crawl space insulated (vapor barrier installation) or fully encapsulated.
Our crew encapsulates crawl spaces all throughout Hampton Roads which includes Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Suffolk, Hampton, Newport News and Yorktown VA.

Costs Of Insulating Your Crawl Space
Many homeowners are unaware of what influences the costs of having their crawlspace insulated, and the reality is that’s it’s very simple.
First there’s the size of your crawl space in therms of square footage. The bigger it is the more expensive installation is going to be.
Second is the type of insulation you are opting in for. Even though there’s not much to choose from, since all insulation materials get the job done almost equally as well, there are a couple of options.
Third is the level of complexity and current condition of the crawl space. When our technicians do a walk-through (or a crawl through to be more precise) they evaluate how much work it’s going to take and what are some possible obstacles.
Those are the top 3 things that we see influence the price of a crawl space insulation as well as encapsulation.
How can insulation save you money?
Upgrading insulation in your home is among the easiest ways to substantially save energy – and money on your monthly utility bill! Better insulation prevents air leaks that make your house harder to heat or cool.
Heating and cooling your home accounts for about 50 percent to 70 percent of the energy used in your home. Unless your home was built as an energy-efficient home, adding insulation will probably reduce your utility bills. Even a small amount of insulation – if properly installed – can reduce energy costs dramatically.
