    Smoke-Damaged Attic Insulation Replaced with Cellulose

    This Roseburg, OR homeowner was referred to us by local contractors, looking to repair smoke damaged insulation in his attic. Since fiberglass (BEFORE) just filters air (instead of insulating), there were remnants of ash throughout the attic. After we removed the insulation, our crew went straight to work reinsulating the attic with blown-in cellulose (AFTER) so the homeowner did not have to spend a day in a cold, uninsulated house. Now Mr. Homeowner has properly insulated attic with no smoke smell.

    Energy Bills Lowered When Attic Correctly Insulated

    When this Eugene, OR homeowner wanted the best way to decrease energy bills, he found our website and scheduled our consultant take a look. We found the attic to be the main source of energy loss; the best way to stay comfortable is to remove old loose fiberglass, air seal holes in attic with ZypFoam, and reinsulate with blown-in cellulose. We also built a walkway through the attic for easy storage access for Mr. Homeowner.

    Our crew removed all the old fiberglass insulation and sprayed closed-cell spray foam in the attic on the roof deck and gable end wall. Now Mr. Homeowner is more comfortable in their new house!

    To well-insulate this house, the remodeler realized it was a perfect time for wall insulation. Wall cavities were sprayed with closed-cell foam (AFTER photo) once drywall was removed.

(BEFORE photo) Our crew removed the old insulation and re-blew his attic to R-38 with our cellulose insulation (AFTER photo). Since he was previously at such a low R-Value and upgraded to R-38, he was able to qualify for a rebate.

Since this was on top of a concrete slab (original garage floor), it was a fantastic solution, and easy to do since it was open!

    Crawl Space Encapsulation Makes Salem, OR Home More Comfortable to Live In

    This homeowner found us on Angi and called to have our consultant Greg come look at her crawl space. After finding an abundance of moisture in the crawl space, our crew installed a Smart Sump Pump and a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to remove the moisture. To prevent future moisture build-up of moisture, the area was completely encapsulated with drainage matting to separate the ground from the crawlspace. Now the crawlspace is a drier and healthier space.

Our crew removed the old insulation and ground cover, installed drainage matts, Terrablock insulation and 2.5 “ of spray foam to make the crawlspace a nicer space. This homeowner now has a drier, cleaner, and more comfortable home.

The insulation was sparse and hanging down (see BEFORE photo), and there was a lot of evidence of rats living in the insulation! Critters love to use fiberglass as nesting material. There was also a plumbing leak that likely contributed to the mold growing in the insulation (the water under the house increased the moisture in the air).

    Attic Now Air-Sealed and Well-Insulated with Blown-in Cellulose Insulation

    These homeowners met us at a home show and scheduled an appointment to have their rental home evaluated. The renters had told them it was expensive to heat/cool this home.

Plus, the insulation in both spaces was fiberglass (See BEFORE picture that shows the attic), and besides not being a very good insulator, critters LOVE to make their homes in it!

    Inefficient, Smelly Crawl Space Upgraded to Encapsulation

    This homeowner knew there were issues under her home with the insulation, and her house smelled bad from the crawl space. She called us when a co-worker referred her to us.

Fiberglass insulation was hanging down everywhere (see BEFORE photo), plus there was clear evidence of mice living under the house.

    Attic's Re-Insulation Steps Make Home More Comfortable to Live In

    This attic in Noti, OR needed its ductwork insulated, and it’s best to do this before the attic got insulated with TruSoft™ blown in cellulose. Our crew used close-cell spray foam—it insulates well and fills in any gaps and cracks where the conditioned air can leak out.

    Attic near Has Air Leaks Sealed and Insulation to R-49 Level

    To help make this Junction City, OR home more comfortable, our insulation crew insulated the attic. First, the old fiberglass insulation (see BEFORE photo) was removed. It wasn’t doing much to insulate! This then allowed our insulation crew to do air-sealing in places where air is leaking from her home into the attic. Then, TruSoft™ cellulose was blown in to the attic to the R-49 level (see AFTER photo). All these steps are working together to help make this home better insulated.

    Garage Attic Space Insulated to Make Garage Warmer

    This home's attic did not have enough insulation to keep in the warm air, so the homeowner was cold in the winter. This comes from all the cracks where air was leaking out of the attic plus the inadequate level of insulation. Even though there was some attic insulation (see the Before photo), there were too many places where it was inadequate. Warm air likes to find its way out, and this attic gave it ample places to escape. Our Insulation Crew sealed the air leaks and then blew in TruSoft cellulose insulation to the R-49 level (see After photo) that is recommended as the minimum level to be effective.

    River Road Area Rental Home Has Crawl Space Insulation Replaced With Spray Foam

    This Eugene-area resident called us as she needed some insulation under her home replaced. When our Energy Consultant was investigating, he also discovered her duct work in the attic was not insulated and was leaky. Some of the hot air she was paying to heat was not reaching her in her home! (see BEFORE photo)

    Since she has a lot of animals, the better option of coating each duct with spray foam was not possible.

    Cold House Making Homeowner Cold-Blown-in Cellulose Solves Issue

    This homeowner called us to investigate the attic as the home got cold quickly when the temperature dropped. She was tired of being cold all winter.

    This BEFORE photo shows pieces of fiberglass insulation here and there; it was definitely not doing much to keep the air she was paying to heat inside her house.

    Our expert insulation crew removed all the old insulation, sealed the air leakage areas (another reason air was escaping from her home into the attic), made a special cover for the attic access point, and blew in TruSoft™ cellulose insulation to the higher R-60 level (see AFTER photo). All of these solutions added up to making this home much more comfortable in the winter.

    Crawl Space Changed from Disaster Area to Encapsulated Crawl Space

    This Eugene, OR couple knew the crawl space under their home was a mess (BEFORE photo). They found us online, met with our Energy Consultant, and chose to move forward with the crawl space encapsulation (AFTER photo) to seal the crawl space.

    Since the natural airflow in a house goes from the crawl space on upwards, they had been breathing in air from the mess under the home. Encapsulating their crawl and adding a dehumidifier now gives them a conditioned space with the correct humidity so mold cannot easily grow and there is no water for critters. It also helps keep the home more comfortable and makes the air they now breathe in their home healthier.

    Spray Foam on Underfloor Helps Make Home More Comfortable

    The owners of this West Eugene, OR home wanted to make their floors warmer and make their home more comfortable and energy efficient. Spray foam is an excellent solution as it doesn't sag like fiberglass batts do, and it fills many cracks and crevices so air doesn't get drawn into the home from the crawl space as quickly as it does with fiberglass.

    No wonder these Eugene, OR homeowners were not comfortable inside their home-what was underneath was a mess! It was very moist, mold was growing, insulation was missing in places, and mice were living under there.

    Since about half the air they were breathing in their home was coming from that crawl space, the owners chose to encapsulate their crawl space. This seals the house from the ground, handles water issues (they needed two sump pumps), and makes it much harder for critters to live under there.
