Bora Foam Insulation
Insulation in the crawlspace is designed to inhibit conduction heat transfer, which is the transfer of heat through solid objects. However, the most common form of insulation (fiberglass) used today doesn’t even accomplish its most fundamental goal and instead traps moisture, supports microbial growth and is susceptible to termite and rodent infestation. For these reasons we have chosen a different more innovative route to insulation in the crawlspace,
Bora Foam is the first termite-resistant expanded polystyrene insulation designed for basement and crawl space encapsulation.
• Resistant to termite damage
• Blocks moisture
• Provides R-11 insulation
• 100% recyclable and made using 10%-15% recycled content
• Puncture resistant
Problems with Fiberglass Insulation
Over years of observation, we have found that even in encapsulated crawl spaces fiberglass insulation is an ideal habitat for rodents, bacteria and mold. Due to the nature of air exchange (Stack Effect). Hot air rises keeping where the insulation meets the subfloor warm, damp and hidden from sight. When rodents live and die in this space they produce harmful VOCs and bacteria that greatly affect your health and indoor air quality. Another major flaw to fiberglass insulation is that it is paper backed, making it an organic surface ideal for mold to use as a host material to inhabit, grow and multiply via reproduction.

Thank you "A Healthy Home" and Kip for the wonderful job you did to stop the mildew in my house. You understood what I was smelling when no one else believed it was a problem. I also appreciate your willingness to come out to my house whenever I called and check on the readout from the basement dehumidifier.You have given us a great peace of mind. Thank you,
