Friday, February 17th, 2017 by Kevin Costa

Challenge

Customer called into after noticing on really cold days there was a major draft coming from the crawlspace

Solution

Pipe Works Services, Inc. will install a CleanSpace Crawl encapsulation with 2'' Silverglo bolted and air sealed on cinderblock side walls 1" TerraBlock foam matting insulation on floor sealed off with CleanSpace vapor barrier. Reduce heat loss and infiltration of cold air by sealing and insulating the Rim Joist area with closed-cell polyurethane spray foam insulation including exposed ductwork in crawl space.
We will supply and install one spring loaded backdraft damper with exterior foam gaskets to provide a tight seal. Range hood exhaust fan will be installed in the exhaust vent near to where the vent exits the home provided the vent pipe is accessible from the attic above the garage.
