Why Crawl Spaces Need Fiberglass or Spray Foam Insulation
Most crawl spaces have a dirt floor with walls on the exterior to minimize pests and wind. This makes them prone to moisture, condensation and mold, and they’re typically quite cool in the winter.
Without proper insulation, that cold air can draw heat from the home, leaving your floor cold in the winter and increasing your heating costs.
In summer, the warmer air below your home could bleed into the living space above, making your air conditioner work harder to keep you cool while increasing your utility costs.
Here are a few ways you can tell if your crawl space needs more insulation:
- You have higher heating and cooling costs than other homes in the area
- Your floors are cool in the winter, or your home is drafty
- You have problems with moisture, mold and condensation
- The moist framing has attracted termites or carpenter ants
- There is rodent activity in the crawl space
- Pipes in the crawl space freeze in the winter
- Your floors are damp or warped
Avoid costly damage from leaks, rot, pests and more with crawl space insulation from IBP Charleston.

Superior Insulation for Crawl Spaces in Charleston Homes
When you need quality crawl space insulation, turn to our team at IBP Charleston. We work with several top manufacturers to provide our customers with the best possible products and prices.
We offer several types of insulation for crawl spaces, including:
- Spray foam: Applied as a liquid, spray foam expands to fill gaps and voids. It is ideal for crawl spaces, as spray foam is water-resistant and offers some of the best R-values of all residential insulation products.
- Fiberglass batts: Made from layers of glass fibers that trap air, fiberglass batts are economical, easy to install, and offer good thermal performance. They are ideal for insulating the floor above the crawl space, protecting your feet from the cold.
We also offer FortiCel mold protection, which can help prevent mold and mildew in porous materials like wood framing and concrete.
