Our customer in Bogart, GA decided to insulate their crawl space during the pandemic. To accomplish this they purchased 29 sheets of .9 lb EPS measuring 2” x 48” x 96”. The EPS sheets were treated with Borate for termite protection. The EPS was used to cover the entire perimeter of the block foundation plus individual pieces were cut to fit up against the rim joist and between the floor joist. EPS cuts very easily with a reciprocating saw or an electric hot knife. The 2” EPS sheets with an insulation rating of R-8.7 made the crawl space more comfortable, in turn making the floor of the house much more comfortable. After the perimeter insulation was installed, a white poly vapor barrier was installed from the bottom of the joist covering the walls and dirt floor of the crawl space creating a well-insulated, moisture proof enclosure.
Here is what our customer had to say: “I've used the foam board I purchased from Universal Foam Products to insulate the foundation walls in my home crawl space. I also used it to insulate and seal the rim joists. Attached are a few pictures before, during and after the completed project. Sourcing this foam board directly from Universal Foam Products was key to being able to do this project myself. Thanks for all your help and have a great holiday!!”
