Insulating A Crawl Space: The Essential Guide

Insulating a crawl space

Insulating a crawl space with Icynene Spray Foam not only makes long-term financial sense, it also excels where other insulation methods fail. Unlike traditional materials, such as fibreglass and cellulose, Icynene is a product which undergoes continual refinement, ensuring that your crawl space comes up to standard and meets the ever-increasing demands of changing building regulations.

By insulating a crawl space with Icynene, you are not just insulating for the chills of today, but also for the challenges of tomorrow, as the following article reveals...

Spray Foam vs. Traditional Insulation

When insulating a crawl space, sufficiently filling in any exposed cracks or gaps is a top priority. Although older methods of insulation may be cheaper for your crawl space, it’s only a matter of time before their shortcomings catch up with them, letting unwelcome draughts blow in.

If you’re considering staying in your property for a good few years to come, it makes sound financial sense to think of every home improvement update as an investment. Icynene’s capacity to expand to up to 100 times its initial size means that every nook and cranny is fully accounted for and sufficiently sealed-perfect for insulating a crawl space.

Insulation For Hard-To-Reach Places

Despite the fact that traditional insulation may seem adequate for the majority of rooms, when it comes to hard-to-reach places in your home, it’s fair to say that Icynene wins hands down. Unlike cellulose and fibreglass, Icynene won’t compress, sag or settle overtime, thus retaining its shape and remaining flexible enough to fill in all of those hard-to-reach places, such as crawl spaces.

By providing such an effective barrier against inclement weather conditions, you can rest assured that by insulating your crawl space, your home will remain consistently cosy through Winter, providing even floor temperatures for additional comfort.

Insulating a crawl space

The difference in temperature between your home and the crawl space over or under it can be significant. Sure, you can implement a few temporary, D.I.Y measures, but if left unresolved for too long, it’s highly likely that you’ll experience moisture build up and persistent energy loss over time

Spray Foam: Noise Control for Your Crawl Space

We all know that sound can travel, but did you also know that you can help stop it in its tracks with the help of Icynene? Unwanted noise from your crawl space or basement can easily be heard in your main living quarters, leaving you home feeling far from the hallowed sanctuary it should be.

This is where Icynene comes into its own, possessing excellent mid-range sound barrier qualities to help make your home that bit quieter.

Decreases Damp And Curbs Condensation

The difference in temperature between your home and the crawl space over or under it can be significant. Sure, you can implement a few temporary, D.I.Y measures, but if left unresolved for too long, it’s highly likely that you’ll experience moisture build up and persistent energy loss over time.

Icynene’s open-celled structure allows water to drain much more quickly from your crawl space, making for an all-round healthier environment.

Minimise Moisture, Maximise Comfort

Crawl spaces can be utilised for a variety of different functions. For most properties, space is at a premium, with inadequate storage solutions meaning that most homeowners resort to storing their treasured possessions in either their basement or loft space.

Consequently, the unwelcome prospect of mould is an all too pressing concern. Insulating a crawl space with Icynene ensures that your priceless keepsakes remain permanently mildew-free.

Spray Foam: An All-Encompassing Barrier For Your Crawl Space

As the primary cause of mould, eliminating trapped moisture is of paramount importance. Unlike traditional insulation, which can easily lose contact with your crawl space’s framing, letting subsequent moisture leak in, Icynene’s impenetrable barrier makes this common problem a thing of the past.
