These Salem, OR homeowners had already dealt with one gigantic infestation of rodents and needed to have insulation replaced. The original insulation was fiberglass, and rodents love to use it as nesting material.
It wouldn’t make sense to just remove the fiberglass and replace it with more fiberglass. Our company offers a variety of insulation solutions, and closed-cell spray foam was the best solution here. Animals do not like to nest in it, they needed the ductwork insulated anyway, and this longer-term solution will also keep their home’s floors warmer in the winter.
This “Before” photo shows how the attic space had no insulation—no wonder the rooms below were cold! Our insulation crew blew in TruSoft™ cellulose to the R-38 level. Besides making a nice “blanket” in the attic (see “After” photo), it will also have the added benefit of deterring rodents from nesting. This cellulose is treated with borate, and animals do not like to be in it.
