Before & After

Insulating a Back Porch Build-over Crawlspace in Wilmington, DE

This detached brownstone row home, likely built in the late 1800s had an addition built over a previously existing porch. The owner wanted us to make the rooms in this addition warmer in winter.

An Energy Audit conducted by Lawson Home Service found the problem was the way the space under the back porch addition had been enclosed and insulated.

A Dr. Energy Saver's CleanSpace™ Crawlspace Encapsulation System was installed, which included installing SilverGlo™ insulation on the walls, and a thick layer of spray foam on the rim band between the floor joists. With this simple and effective method the insulation hanging from the floor was no longer necessary. The access door was replaced with an air tight EverLastTM Crawl Space Door.

Now the addition room will be comfortable all year long, thanks to the work of Lawson Home Service's hard-working crew.
