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!

Crawl Space Repair Experts

Crawl spaces are frequently neglected by homeowners because they are hidden away under our homes. Ignoring your home’s crawl space seems inconsequential, but disregarding your crawl space can lead to potentially critical problems. The air that flows through your home will eventually pass through your crawl space, taking with it pollen, mold spores, and various contaminants that prosper in the moist, cold, and dirty atmosphere of a vented crawl space.

In addition to leaving you and your family vulnerable to these contaminants, a vented crawl space can also result in expensive drafts that make for chilly temperatures in the higher floors. This issue is worsened by the utilization of fiberglass insulation that can become ineffective and soggy in the moist environment. These issues significantly decrease the energy efficiency of your entire home.

Luckily, The Drying Co. can reconstruct your crawl space so that what once was a hazard to your home becomes a resource. We provide a variety of crawl space solutions, such as:

  • Crawl Space Insulation
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Crawl Space Support Jacks
  • Crawl Space Dehumidifiers
  • And More!

Job Stories From Port Haywood, VA
Upgrading Attic Insulation in Port Haywood, VA

This Port Haywood homeowner reached out to us because they were concerned about the insulation in their home. They had rooms that were too cold in the winter that they wanted to make more comfortable.

The attic had three chimneys, each chimney has a couple inches of space between it and the wood framing of the home to prevent fires. This creates a tunnel for conditioned air to escape into the unconditioned attic.

There was minimal fiberglass insulation between the joists that offered little protection for the home against the sweltering attic temperatures int eh summer and freezing air in the winter. In the winter, the attic is the same temperature as outside and cools the ceiling to that temperature. As warm conditioned air rises through the home, it meets the cold ceiling. The warm air gives up its heat, cooling, and falling this cycle is called convective looping. This results in rooms being too cold, hard to heat and cool, and drafts in the home.

To address the uncomfortable rooms in the home. We recommended removing any plywood or debris in the attic. Then we would wrap the chimneys in rock wool, this is a fire-retardant material that can be safely wrapped around the chimney and allows us to blow in insulation up to the Rockwool. Then we would install an additional R-38 of blown in cellulose insulation on top of the existing fiberglass insulation. If the homeowner chooses this approach to insulating their attic, they will have less heat transfer to the rooms below the attic meaning air they pay to heat and cool will stay in the home longer. This will help to even the temperatures in the home, making the rooms and the homeowners more comfortable.
