Crawl spaces, subfloors and basements that aren’t properly insulated are prone to water damage from moisture in the ground under your house. This can cause inconvenient (and potentially costly) problems.
If your crawl space is ventilated, it can be hard to keep warm in the winter, and during the summer, it can be difficult to dehumidify, which can result in higher levels of moisture. The professionals at Accurate Insulation can insulate the subfloor and between the floor joists.
For unventilated crawl spaces, sealing between the house and crawl space isn’t as important, so in our opinion, it’s best to install wall insulation.

Whether your crawl space is ventilated or unventilated, it must have adequate drainage.

Interior drainage solutions include:
If your crawl space is ventilated, the best insulation is fiberglass insulation. Depending on your crawl space moisture retention and layout, we may recommend:
Blown-in fiberglass costs less and gets into those hard-to-reach places. It may also be better for the environment. But if you have a dry crawl space without moisture issues, batts are a great choice and provide superior insulating properties.
If your crawl space is unventilated, the best insulation is rigid foam insulation. Rigid foam board maximizes energy efficiency. We use:
