Insulation

Crawlspace Doctor of East Central Indiana will install and service insulation for your crawl space in East Central Indiana, Marion County, Hamilton County, Johnson County, Shelby County and Hancock County, cities of Indianapolis, Carmel, Greenwood, Franklin and Noblesville.

When foundation vents were installed in crawlspaces they allowed cold air to enter. In the winter months the cold air had the potential of freezing water pipes and allowing the floors to remain cold. This challenged the heating system to try to warm the home. Fiberglass insulation had to be added to the floor joists in an attempt to prevent the cold crawl space air from making the floors cold. The same foundation vents that allow the cold air to enter in the winter also allowed humid air to enter in the summer.

The humidity would condense in the cool crawl space and collect on the fiberglass insulation. Between the humidity and occasionally rodents, the fiberglass insulation often would fall to the ground. Styrofoam insulation is also often used to insulate the exterior crawl space walls. This is a preferred method. If foundation vents are installed the insulation value will be decreased by the foundation vent openings allowing cold air to bypass the insulation.

Creating a "Conditioned Crawlspace" utilizing Styrofoam insulation and eliminating foundation vents is the preferred method for energy efficiency and humidity control. Crawlspace Doctor has developed systems for all crawl space insulation needs.

 

Indiana East Customer Testimonials

Our offices were so damp and musty that sometimes it was hard to breath. The floors had swollen and were buckling in several places. You could actually feel the moisture on the walls. Our expensive recording equipment was deteriorating by the day. The Crawlspace Doctor fixed it all in a few days and has come by a number of times in the last year and a halfjust to check and make sure that everything is OK (at no charge--and the problems have never returned). We have been very satisfied. You'll love Tom, he really is 'the crawl space doctor.

We spent thousands of dollars with a local company that did a very sloppy job and didn't do what they had promised. Luckily we consulted with Tom and he went down into the crawl space and took pictures to show us what was going on. I certainly didn't want to go in there, especially before Tom did his thing. The bottom line, Tom fixed the problem and we went from standing water in the crawl space to a dry crawlspace. Tom came by several times and checked his work, sometimes in the snow. He sticks by his work and will work hard until you are satisfied. Trust us, if we had gone with Tom from the beginning we would have saved money and had it done right the first time. I can't recommend his services enough

This is a brief note of appreciation for your work on our crawlspace. Your work was excellent; we are very pleased with the results. We do not get any moisture inside the house and the crawl space itself is dry. The pump you installed there has done a wonderful job during the recent heavy rains, which caused problems for many people. It is great to have peace of mind, knowing that the crawl space is protected. We are also happy with your prompt response to any questions and special requests that we had. Keep up the good work. We can recommend your work to anyone without any reservations
