Batt Insulation Explained

Batt, or fiberglass roll insulation, is what has been used to insulate homes for many years. It is typically a more economical way to insulate your crawlspace in the short term (second only to blown-in fiber insulation in terms of initial cost) if controlling temperature is the primary goal. However, batt tends to compress and/or fall over time, and is not ideal if moisture and humidity are affecting your crawlspace. If you’re suffering a musty crawlspace, you’re noticing moist, wet floors, or you’re seeing your hardwood floors cup, there is likely a greater issue of trapped and lingering water under your home.
