Insulation Services Case Studies: Historic Waterford, VA Home Gets Attic and Crawl Space Insulation

Wednesday, May 8th, 2019 by Justin Dobson

Challenge

This historic Waterford, VA home actually hosted George Washington!!  The homeowner was looking to lower their utility bills.  The house is heated with oil and has central A/C.  Both oil and electric bills run high in the summer and winter months.

Solution

A complete crawl space encapsulation was done using TerraBlock insulation on the floor of the crawl. CleanSpace (vapor barrier) was also installed on the floor to keep the new floor joists from rotting. Foam spray was used to air seal the rim joists and also hold the CleanSpace in place.  The attic was encapsulated using SilverGlo foam boards and one part foam spray insulation.
