Home Insulation Services Case Studies: Crawl Space Insulation in Mine Hill, NJ

Wednesday, February 27th, 2019 by Jonathan Schulter

Challenge

A customer in Mine Hill NJ found Pipe Works Services online and was looking to insulate their crawlspace that ran underneath their bathroom. They had an issue with frozen pipes. They received other estimates but from the start, felt comfortable with Pipe Works Services and choose us to create a solution.  

Solution

Pipe Works Services technicians Gio and Malik removed and disposed of existing fiberglass and rigid board insulation in crawl space by ripping down the insulation from the beams. They then installed the crawl space insulation with 2" SilverGlo rigid board and or 2" closed cell spray foam on side walls Terrablock 1" foam matting on floor. Gio and Malik had to crawl in an extremely tight space to get the boards and clean space vapor barrier over the dirt floor area.  Then they installed approximately 2" closed cell spray foam over rim joist. They had to make sure all the drainage piping for the bathroom was properly insulated with the spray foam so pipes wouldn't freeze. Gio and Malik installed weather stripping and rigid board on the existing crawl space access door since it was still in good shape.
