Wet Crawl Space Insulation 

Insulation is crucial for maintaining temperature control and providing other benefits in your home. However, it can sometimes get damaged, especially in a damp crawl space.  

Wet crawl space insulation is a common and significant issue for homeowners in Indiana’s humid continental climate. If not addressed, it can lead to various problems, such as structural damage, decreased energy efficiency, and compromised indoor air quality.

Our friendly and knowledgeable team, equipped with advanced technology and proprietary crawl space encapsulation solutions, is committed to safeguarding your property and enhancing your living environment.

What Causes Wet Crawl Space Insulation?
