Do you have a smelly, dirty, crawlspace filled with bugs and who knows what else? Ecotelligent Homes can solve your crawlspace troubles with professionally installed vapor barriers and spray foam crawlspace insulation. As a licensed builder and professional insulation contractor, Ecotelligent Homes has been encapsulating crawl spaces throughout Southeast Michigan since 2009.
WHAT IS CRAWLSPACE ENCAPSULATION?
Crawlspace encapsulation turns your crawlspace into a mini basement with a vapor barrier over the ground to control moisture and insulating the walls of a crawlspace. This service brings your crawlspace into the conditioned (that is, heated or cooled) space, just like a basement, and eliminates the need for your crawlspace vents. Along with crawlspace insulation, your home will no longer have a scary crawlspace but a useable space for storage.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ENCAPSULATING YOUR SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN CRAWLSPACE?
From Birmingham to Canton and Milford to Dearborn, Ecotelligent Homes has helped homeowners throughout Southeast Michigan to encapsulate and insulate their crawlspaces and realize the following benefits:
- No more cold and drafty floors (improved comfort)
- Reduced bugs and spider webs
- Lower dust levels
- Eliminated smells and controlled moisture for improved indoor air quality
- Converted damp, musty space into clean, usable storage space
THE ECOTELLIGENT DIFFERENCE
Unlike a basement waterproofing company, Ecotelligent Homes’ methodology is to evaluate your crawlspace as a system. We go beyond the building code minimums to ensure your space is not only waterproofed but properly air sealed and insulated as part of your comprehensive energy efficiency upgrade. What differentiates a crawlspace insulated by Ecotelligent Homes?
- A thread reinforced 12mil crawl space vapor barrier allows you to store items on the floor of your crawlspace without worrying about damaging the crawlspace vapor barrier
- Closed cell spray foam insulation on the crawlspace walls that creates a custom fit air barrier and thermal barrier that is far superior to foam board insulation or fiberglass insulation
- Attention to detail at critical areas on your crawlspace foundation walls and rim joist that result in a consistent air barrier to greatly reduce the drafts you feel on the floor above your crawlspace
