Perhaps one of the most underrated aspects of crawl space insulation is its ability to improve and protect the structural integrity of the space. That place become damp or outright wet can be a threat to the structural integrity of the home at large.
Moisture can lead to rusting metal, rotting wood, and both walls and floors to swell and crack. That’s not even mentioning the fact that dirty, damp crawl spaces can introduce vermin like rats and termites, which can cause even more damage to joists and beams.
Any damage done to these areas can weaken the crawl space. With enough time and damage, it can potentially cause the crawl space to fail to hold up the weight of the home. Investing in crawl space insulation guarantees safety, dryness, as well as strength to support the house’s weight.
Moisture, pests, and other pollutants can cause any number of issues. Don’t give them the opportunity by investing in a spray foam insulation for your crawl space today. It is an investment in the overall safety of your home for the foreseeable future.
