Insulation

Crawlspace Doctor of West North Carolina will install and service insulation for your crawl space in West North Carolina, Orange County, Durham County and the cities of Durham, Chapel Hill, Burlington, Greensboro, Hillsborough.

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.

North Carolina West Customer Testimonials


We were told our crawlspace was in need of serious repair.  We got a couple of different quotes and options from different Companies including the Crawlspace Doctor.  After research we decided to go with Crawlspace Doctor and the Closed Air Supply Crawl Space.  His prices were the most reasonable and he was also very friendly, professional,  helpful and knowledgeable from the start.  He answered all of our questions and was willing to answer more.  He did excellent work in a timely and professional manner.  We would use Brad with Crawlspace Doctor again in the future if necessary.

We noticed that our downstairs bedrooms had a musty odor that seemed to be coming from the crawl space so I called Brad from Crawlspace doctor. He explained everything that his company would do in an easy-to-understand way. Brad went into our crawlspace and disovered that we had a guest living there (probably a raccoon or possum based on the droppings) and we also had some sink holes & water issues. He & his assistant showed up when promised and now our crawl space is energy efficient, mold-free and critter-free! They also even removed the critter droppings! They were also super fantastic with my curious 3-year old niece who was visiting, as well as both our dogs. I would HIGHLY recommend them!!

Brad was great throughout the entire job, always keeping me informed and letting me know how much more work they had to complete. The crawl space is in almost livable condition. The house had a musty smell to it, but that is now gone. We were most likely breathing in some of the mold that had been growing under the house. The humidity levels are down to 55%, and should stay at that level in both winter and summer. I will call Brad again in a heartbeat if I move to another home and have a similar problem. He is the kind of guy that I think people are looking for. He is punctual, honest, straightforward, and true to his word.

Doctor Brad and sidekick Justin sealed our 1600 sq. ft. crawl space, and I do mean crawl. Our space was nasty, damp, dark, smelly, confined, buggy, moldy, mousy, and snaky. As I crawled around the space midway through and after the job I was surprised and delighted at the high quality of the work and these guys attention to detail. It looked like they gave my space the same effort they would give their own home. Today my 7 yr old daughter and her friend were playing "spy dogs" with their flashlights in the crawl space. Amazing.
