We can install insulation for your:
– Crawl spaces
We install thermal, acoustical treatments, sound transmission, and fireproofing for all types of buildings. Empty or 100% occupied. We are dedicated to informing you about the latest, high-performance insulation products available. Trust us to help you find the ideal, energy-efficient choice while remaining mindful of your budget.
TYPES OF INSULATION
Often called expanding foam or spray insulation, spray foam insulation is a type of polyurethane foam that is a combination of two liquids, isocyanate and polyol resin.
When combined, they quickly expand to over 30 times the original volume, filling all gaps, crevices, and voids before curing into a durable, lightweight foam. Spray foam insulation adheres tightly to surfaces like wood framing, plywood, pipes, and electrical cables, creating a virtually airtight seal that prevents air infiltration, while it is aerated.
Open Cell Foam
An upgrade from traditional insulations like fiberglass batts or blown cellulose, GreenBay Energy Open Cell Foam creates an air seal to keep conditioned air indoors, and dust and pollen out. In addition to its high insulating value, Open Cell Spray Foam is a leading soundproofing material and is excellent around home theaters, kitchens, or between floors.
Closed Cell Foam
GreenBay Energy Closed Cell Foam cures to very densely hardened state, giving it the added benefit of strengthening the structure or roof up to 3 times, making it very popular in hurricane zones and storm prone areas. In addition to the energy saving benefits of Open Cell Foam, Closed Cell Foam is also a moisture barrier, making it the perfect choice for crawl spaces or basements.

The use of fiberglass for building insulation dates back decades. It’s the most widely used and trusted insulation material today.
Fiberglass insulation helps make buildings more thermally efficient by better retaining the desired temperature of enclosed spaces, whether they are heated or cooled. Its thermal performance reduces utility costs for building owners, conserves nonrenewable fuel sources and provides greater occupant comfort (when used in conjunction with appropriately sized heating and cooling equipment).
When exposed to moisture, fiberglass insulation neither absorbs nor holds water. If fiberglass insulation does get wet during or after installation, installers should visually inspect it on all six sides for contamination. If the material appears free of visible defects, installers must dry it thoroughly to restore its full R-Value.
Made from sand and recycled glass, fiberglass insulation is naturally noncombustible and remains so for the product’s life. It requires no additional fire-retardant chemical treatments. Many building codes also recognize fiberglass insulation as an acceptable fire stop in wood- and steel-framed wall assemblies.
Fiberglass insulation is a naturally sound-absorbent material that significantly reduces sound transmission in wall, ceiling, floor, and HVAC assemblies. The first inch of fiberglass insulation in a building cavity can increase an assembly’s sound transmission class (STC) value by three or four points in some constructions. Each additional inch can further increase the STC rating by two points.
Fiberglass insulation has significant recycled content, with some batt, roll and loose-fill insulation products containing up to 80 percent recycled glass. The other main ingredient in fiberglass insulation, silica sand, is an abundant, naturally renewing resource, limiting environmental impact in the manufacturing process.
Intumescent fireproofing paint coating creates fire-retardant and fire-resistant barriers for structures and construction materials.
Fireproofing is necessary. It is to take passive fire protection measures to protect a building in case of a fire. The better materials you use, the better fire resistance rating you will have. However, it is important to know that fireproofing buildings does not mean it will entirely unaffected by fire. Nothing can ever be entirely immune to fires, but you have a better chance of protection in the case that there is one.
Roxul or Rockwool insulation provides significantly better thermal performance compared to standard glass fiber batts. It can achieve a thermal insulation value of R24 versus R19 – R21 for a 2×6 wall cavity, a significant improvement when considering total building envelope performance.
ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation is made from natural stone and contains up to 40% recycled content, which gives it unique characteristics that other insulation’s can’t match. The higher density batts reduce airflow with the wall cavity, reducing convective losses. This translates into a better performing and more comfortable thermal wall.

Environmentally friendly and thermally efficient, loose-fill cellulose insulation is installed in many homes and commercial buildings. It’s also one of the best insulation materials for soundproofing.
● Provides excellent energy savings and can help you save money
● Helps you stay comfortable, year in and year out
● Has a higher density and R-value than many other types of insulation
● Helps reduce air infiltration
● Is made of up to 85 percent recycled materials
● Meets, and often exceeds, fire standards, providing increased safety and peace of mind
Why Do I Need Waterproofing?
We can winterize your crawl space to help you avoid expensive damage from frozen and burst pipes. Our proven winterization repairs will also keep your home warmer and reduce your heating costs
A building or structure needs waterproofing, as concrete itself is not watertight. The conventional system of waterproofing involves ‘membranes’ applied to the positive, or exterior side of the below grade foundation wall. A watertight building envelope relies on the application of one or more layers of membrane that act as a barrier between exterior water and the building structure. This barrier will create a lasting dry basement, and will also enhance air quality in your home or building.
Our experience in the waterproofing industry ensures that every step will be taken for proper installation of our products. The improvements we make to winterize your crawl space stay in place all year round, improving interior comfort and energy efficiency at all times of the year. And don’t forget another important benefit: Your crawl space will look as great as it performs.
