Spray Foam Insulation Contractor

Spray foam insulation is the best choice for insulation if you’re looking to increase your comfort & decrease your energy bills. Spray foam insulation is truly the best option for home insulation and here are a few reasons why. Spray Foam Insulation provides an air barrier due to its ability to fill gaps and cracks. It is also great at staying in the hard to reach areas because of its super-adhesive qualities. Unlike fiberglass and cellulose insulation, spray foam insulation is waterproof. Water will not be able to pass through the foam which makes it an extremely durable and long-lasting product. Lastly, spray foam insulation is foolproof. Spray foam is sprayed as a liquid and then expands and hardens to fill voids and gaps. There is never any chance for an area to be missed or void to form. Once cured, spray foam insulation will stay in place for decades to come and will never shift or settle like fiberglass. To ensure your home has the best insulation available and your energy bills are low, switch to spray foam insulation today!

Blown-in & Attic Insulation

Blown-in insulation is often called blow-in or blown insulation, but it doesn’t matter what you call it. What does matter is how well it keeps your home insulated. Many people are under the impression that their attic has enough insulation, however, 9 out of 10 times it does not. In a nationwide study, it was found that the average American attic only has about 1/3 enough insulation to keep the home properly insulated. That is where blown-in insulation comes in. Blown-in insulation is blown into your attic and forms a dense layer that will ensure heat will not escape through the top of your home. Having an attic that is properly insulated can cut heating and cooling costs but up to 20%. What are you waiting for? Call or click today to schedule a FREE blown-in or attic insulation estimate!

Job Stories From Dinwiddie, VA
Insulating an Attic & Crawl Space in Dinwiddie, VA

This Dinwiddie, VA homeowner reached out to us about concerns in their attic and crawl space. In the attic, they felt like they didn’t have enough insulation because they had rooms that were too hot and too cold, that just never seemed to be comfortable. As for the crawl space, they were interested in re-insulating as well as address any microbial growth.

In the Attic, We found that there was some existing insulation, but it wasn’t enough to stop the ceiling from heating up and heat radiating into the rooms below. The attic had several gaps where the air was escaping including top plates and wire and plumbing holes. We recommended the homeowner air seal the attic at all of these gaps to stop conditioned air from leaking through these openings. We then proposed adding additional blown-in cellulose insulation to the attic to help reduce the heat transfer from the attic to the rooms below. This would not only help reduce the conditioned air loss, but it would also make the rooms below more comfortable for the homeowner and improve the energy efficiency of the home.

As for the crawl space, we found that the existing 6 mil vapor barrier had deteriorated and was not completely covering the ground. This allowed moisture from the earth to rise into the crawl space and contribute to the high relative humidity. High Relative Humidity, warm temperatures, and organic material are all mold need to grow. We mildew/mold growth on the joists and paper backing of the fiberglass insulation. The insulation had absorbed moisture from the crawl space and was sagging and falling. Open vents allowed warm humid air to flow into the crawl space, contributing to the problem.

To address the microbial growth, we first recommended removing all the old, damaged materials and debris out of the crawl space and treating the joists with Shockwave Antimicrobial. Shockwave is a hospital-grade antimicrobial designed to kill the mildew/mold growth. Next, we recommend installing a heavy-duty vapor barrier that is more durable and can withstand service persons working in the crawl space. We would seal the vapor barrier at all seams, wrap and seal all piers, and seal the liner 6-8 inches above outside grade on the foundation walls to completely isolate the crawl space from the earth’s moisture. We also suggested sealing all open vents, the sill plate, and the rim and band to prevent humid air from continuing to flood into the crawl space and raise the relative humidity. Then we recommended applying Closed Cell Spray Foam insulation to the crawl space walls. We recommend this over insulating between the joists because it extends the thermal barrier of the home down to the crawl space floor, and at 1.5 inches, this foam product is both a vapor retarder and air barrier and will reduce the heat transfer from outside to the crawl space resulting in warmer floors and contributing to controlling the humidity. Finally, we advised installing a dehumidifier to keep the relative humidity under control. If the homeowner opts for this solution in the crawl space, they will be able to address the mold and mildew growth as well as prevent it from reoccurring and having to do the work again. This solution will also help the home stay more comfortable, reduce drafts, keep floors warm in the winter, and improve the energy efficiency of the home.
