Fiberglass insulation in a crawl space tends to soak up moisture and humidity, growing mold and eventually causing it to “drip” off the ceiling.
Crawl space insulation is important. A number of comfort and energy problems are caused by inadequate or incorrect crawl space insulation.
Any crawl space can be wet and damp, so the insulation must hold up in those conditions. We recommend installing a vapor barrier along with proper insulation to prevent mold and moisture problems and keep your home comfortable year-round.
When you count on Ohio Basement Authority for your crawl space insulation needs, we will send out an expert technician to inspect your crawl space and recommend the right services. We have the tools and experience to seal air leaks and install high-performance insulation to help improve your home’s comfort and energy efficiency.
Homeowners in Plain City, OH, have lived in their house for 22 years, and they wanted to create a healthier storage area in their crawl space.
While their crawl space did not leak or cause energy penalties, they noticed problems with mice in the past.
After removing the older insulation and matting, one of Ohio Basement Authority's expert crews encapsulated the crawl space with CrawlSeal liner. This isolates the home from the earth and pests. Drainage matting was placed under the liner to enhance durability, and ExTremeBloc insulation panels were installed on the walls.
Both the walls and floor are now insulated to save the most money. These products also meet the homeowners' goals of controlling earth moisture, saving energy, and creating a cleaner crawl space.

Crawl space insulation was developed to meet the challenge of insulating rough, uneven crawl space floors. However, this innovative insulation is versatile enough to be used on foundation walls as well. The ¾-in.-thick sheet material is covered on both sides with a durable moisture barrier that makes the insulation resistant to puncture and abrasion damage.
When you install crawl space installation, you get insulation and moisture protection from a single product. When installed over a crawl space floor, it also provides a cushioned surface that service professionals and homeowners will appreciate when moving around in the crawl space.
ExTremeBloc™ Crawl Space Wall Insulation panels look different because they ARE different. Tiny graphite particles permeate its foam insulation to give it that silver/gray shine.
These tiny particles reflect heat and lower the material’s conductivity for superior R-value per inch.
In addition to resisting heat conduction, ExTremeBloc™ boasts a radiant barrier, which reflects heat back into your crawl space for ultimate energy savings. ExTremeBloc™ crawl space insulation can also be installed on the perimeter of your floor framing system (rim joist) for maximum energy savings.
For the best in energy efficiency, combine ExTremeBloc™ and Crawl Space Insulation together. This keeps the cold out of your crawl space — and the heat in!
