Water issues under this church prompted the reverend to contact our company to find out how to remedy it. Besides a lot of water, there was mold growing under this church; folks were breathing this in since about 50% of the air on the first floor comes from the crawl space!
To solve all issues, the church council chose to have the crawl space encapsulated. To move out water, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier plus two UltraSump sump pumps were also installed.
The smell inside is now much better!
This attic in a Gresham, OR house had what we call a “mouse party.” Rodents love to live in that pink fiberglass. Our crew sucked out all the old, dirty insulation, did air sealing of the leaky areas, and blew in TruSoft™ cellulose. Since the cellulose is treated with borate, it deters critters since they do not like to live or nest in it.
To get their attic up to code, this owner chose our company to blow in TruSoft™ cellulose into the attic to raise the level up to the R-49 code level.
To help make this Vancouver, WA home more comfortable and energy efficient, sealing and insulating was needed in the attic. It was at an R-30 level, yet code for our area is now R-49, and R-60 is highly suggested.
To make this higher insulation level perform at its best, first the old insulation was removed. This allowed our crew access to seal where there were air leaks. Six lights were covered with can light covers; light fixtures leak a lot of conditioned air from inside the house into the attic.
The crew then blew in to the higher R-60 level TruSoft™ cellulose insulation. It is make of newsprint and treated with borate so critters do not like to use it as nesting material. The final step was to air seal and insulate the scuttle cover to the attic. All of these steps together have made for a much more comfortable home to live in!
To make their home more comfortable year-round, these Gladstone, OR homeowners chose our experts to remove all the old insulation, air seal the leaks, and re-install insulation by blowing in TruSoft™ cellulose to the higher R-60 value.
From quite the wet mess to a space where they can store items, this Sherwood, OR crawl space went through the encapsulation transformation!
This attic in a South Salem, OR home was woefully under-insulated. There was some old insulation (see BEFORE photo), but not enough to actually do much.
Our insulation crew removed the old insulation, sealed up places where air was leaking in from the home (that is typical for most homes), and then blew in TruSoft™ cellulose insulation (see AFTER photo).
Tired of having to use portable (and expensive to run!) heaters in the winter, this Albany, OR couple chose to seal their crawl space from the elements with crawl space encapsulation.
This couple bought this Forest Grove, OR house recently and had all the fiberglass insulation in the attic removed. They were ready for a different contractor to re-insulate it.
Our insulation team started by air sealing the attic. This seals the holes and gaps between walls and framing that are notorious places for air to leak from inside the warm home to inside a cold attic. The then blew in TruSoft cellulose insulation to the R-49 level. Both of these solutions together instantly made a difference in their comfort inside their new home.
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. Having to remove all her animals for a few hours, including the arthritic cat, was going to be a lot of work! Instead, our crew sealed all the connection points on the ducts with mastic and then wrapped each duct with vinyl-backed ducting insulation. (see AFTER photo)
The homeowner was thankful for our work and for our care regarding her animals.
This owner was working on preparing his Eugene, OR rental for sale and knew there were big issues under the home (see BEFORE photo). The insulation was hanging down and this would clearly be an issue for a potential buyer.
He chose to replace the insulation with 3 inches of closed-cell spray foam as this would be a good selling point. Spray foam will not sag over time as fiberglass does, and it seals up holes.
The couple that owns this Corvallis, OR home knew there were insulation issues under their home. When our Energy Consultant crawled under to investigate and take photos to show the homeowner, besides all the insulation sagging and falling down (see BEFORE photo), there was a large rodent infestation!
They moved forward with a crawl space encapsulation to address the insulation issues, the rodent infestation, and the high humidity level.
This homeowner called Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver to investigate the attic as the home was not comfortable in winter or summer.
Our crew removes all the old pink fiberglass insulation for two reasons:
1) If you add insulation on top of the old stuff, it just gives critters a nice warm blanket on top of them—they will still live in your attic.
2) Without removing the old insulation, you cannot get at the areas that need to be sealed up before new insulation is blown on top. An amazing number of houses are leaky; air they were paying to heat or cool was just leaking out into the attic because of the stack effect.
Our insulation crew then blew in TruSoft™ cellulose insulation that is treated with borate to deter critters from nesting in it.
