CRAWL SPACE INSULATION REPLACEMENT IN RICHMOND
In recent years, Richmond homeowners have made it common practice to insulate their crawl spaces, and there’s a good reason for that. Protecting your Richmond crawl space with insulation helps solve many problems:
- Keeps the floor above the crawl space from feeling too cold.
- Protects your plumbing from winter freezes.
- Reduces temperature fluctuations throughout your home.
- Increases the energy efficiency of your home.
- Improves overall air quality.
Many homeowners, though, don’t realize that the insulation in their crawl spaces needs to be inspected and most likely replaced every 10 years, especially since we live where the humidity hovers above 70% 11 months out of the year.
The experts at Stable Foundations have provided our neighbors in Richmond with fine-tuned foundation and crawl space repair for more than 25 years. We’re in the business to give you peace of mind because the foundation beneath your floor is crucial to the stability and value of your home. We offer free foundation and crawl space inspections to ensure our Richmond neighbors are well protected.
WHY REPLACE YOUR RICHMOND CRAWL SPACE INSULATION?
We live in an area of high humidity, and over time, that excessive moisture collects in the crawl space area and degrades the insulation. Mildew and fungi begin to grow in the fiberglass of the insulation and eventually spread to the wood floor joists, support beams, and other wood construction. Eventually, the wood will begin to rot, and if not stopped in time, will invite termites and other insects—and often furry critters—to invade and take up residence in your crawl space. That invasion will lead to greater damage and more costly repairs.
