SilverGlo™ is an expanded foam insulation infused with graphite during manufacturing to increase its insular ability by 24%. Combined with the silver radiant heat barrier, it provides an R-rating of R-11 on your crawl space walls. This can be customized for special projects or local code requirements too, making it a very versatile, effective solution.
To prevent mold, rot, and musty odors SilverGlo™ also creates a barrier on the crawl space walls that keeps moisture from entering the crawl space.

As fiberglass insulation gets soaked with water in a crawl space, it grows mold and can actually drip from the ceiling.
Very often we see vented crawl spaces with fiberglass insulation on the ceiling.
Crawl space vents let in humid air in the summer, where it's then cooled in the crawl space. As the air cools, the relative humidity of the air rises, and extra moisture is left on crawl space surfaces in the form of condensation.
This moisture ends up on the insulation and of course wet insulation doesn't insulate as well as dry insulation. In fact, it actually can lose its insulation value, and the extra weight pulls it from the ceiling.
Wet insulation can actually be a food source for mold and rot, which will grow on any organic materials in the crawl space like wood framing.
Basically crawl space vents and fiberglass insulation don't work very well.
