Austin Payne from Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver

Austin applied to work with us because he could see we are a friendly, great company to work for that is growing and gives him room to progress in his career. Before coming to work here, Austin was a hunting guide in Colorao and a fishing guide in Alaska. During his time off, he did general concrete work.

Austin's work as a guide taught him how to provide everyday, reliable customer service.

With his spare time, he says, "Nothing beats a good weekend with the girlfriend and the dogs, exploring Oregon."

Case Studies I've worked on:

Before and after photos from jobs I've worked on:
  • Troutdale, OR Attic Spray Foamed to Help with Heat Loss
    Before
    Troutdale, OR Attic Spray Foamed to Help with Heat Loss
    After

    This Troutdale, OR homeowner was doing a lot of work on her house and chose our company to spray foam the ceiling in the attic as it is a great way to prevent air from leaking outside and leaves the attic floor open for storage.

  • Air Quality in SE Portland, OR Home Improved, Plus Floors Now Warmer
    Before
    Air Quality in SE Portland, OR Home Improved, Plus Floors Now Warmer
    After

    This owner worked with us to solve two issues: mold and cold floors. She didn’t know there was mold growing, but she did know the air quality inside her home was not good as it smelled weird.

    About 50% of the air she was breathing in her home (it’s a one-story house) was coming from the moldy crawl space!

    Our insulation crew started by dealing with the crawl space mold: Mold-X was applied to neutralize the mold and discourage it from re-growing. They then applied three inches of closed-cell spray foam to the underfloor. The spray foam seals cracks and crevices so the air cannot flow into the house and make the floors cold. It also surpasses fiberglass batts—critters like to nest in fiberglass, but cannot in spray foam.

    She tells us her home does not smell anymore!

  • Ductwork Under Home in West Linn, OR Ecapsulated with Spray Foam
    Before
    Ductwork Under Home in West Linn, OR Ecapsulated with Spray Foam
    After

    This West Linn, OR homeowner wanted her ductwork to be less leaky to help increase the efficiency of her home’s heating system. Spry foam is the best solution, as it seals leaks (ductwork likes to be leaky) and is a longer-term and more effective solution rather than wrapping them with fiberglass.

  • Closed-Cell Spray Foam Solves Two Issues Under This Canby, OR Home
    Before
    Closed-Cell Spray Foam Solves Two Issues Under This Canby, OR Home
    After

    The homeowner knew about issues under his house in the crawl space and contacted us for an estimate. One main concern was the ductwork that was leaking and didn’t have tight insulation covering it (see BEFORE photo).

    The best solution here to re-insulate the underfloor plus seal and insulate the ductwork is closed-cell spray foam! Our insulation installation crew started with removal of the old insulation. The crew then sprayed the underfloor and the ductwork with closed-cell spray foam (see AFTER photo).

    This longer-term, more permanent solution instead of fiberglass will make this home more energy efficient plus animals do not use spray foam for nesting as they like to do with fiberglass.

  • Pole Barn in Aurora, OR Insulated with Spray Foam
    Before
    Pole Barn in Aurora, OR Insulated with Spray Foam
    After

    The owner of this barn near Aurora, OR wanted to turn the existing pole barn into a work studio.

    If he had chosen fiberglass batting, he would still have been cold in this building as the sides are metal. Closed-cell spray foam is a great, sturdy, longer-term solution as it seals the surfaces it is applied to.

  • Crawl Space Encapsulated Under Sherwood, OR Home
    Before
    Crawl Space Encapsulated Under Sherwood, OR Home
    After

    From quite the wet mess to a space where they can store items, this Sherwood, OR crawl space went through the encapsulation transformation!

  • Closed-Cell Spray Foam Deters Rodent Infestation Under Salem, OR Home
    Before
    Closed-Cell Spray Foam Deters Rodent Infestation Under Salem, OR Home
    After

    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.

  • Attic Floor of Eugene, OR Home Now Well-Insulated with Closed-Cell Spray Foam
    Before
    Attic Floor of Eugene, OR Home Now Well-Insulated with Closed-Cell Spray Foam
    After

    To help make their home more comfortable and energy-efficient, this Eugene, OR couple chose closed-cell spray foam (AFTER photo) to replace the inefficient fiberglass batting insulation (BEFORE photo) that was in their attic. This spray foam seals air leaks and makes a nice impenetrable “blanket” in their attic. It also deters rodents as they cannot nest in it like they prefer to do in fiberglass.

  • Closed-Cell Spray Foam Helps Make Floors Warmer in South Eugene, OR Home
    Before
    Closed-Cell Spray Foam Helps Make Floors Warmer in South Eugene, OR Home
    After

    Being cold in their new home is not what these Eugene, OR homeowners were expecting! To solve this, they chose the longer-term solution of closed-cell spray foam applied to the underfloor in the crawl space. They told us they noticed an immediate improvement!

  • Corvallis, OR Crawl Space Encapsulated to Deter Pest Infestation
    Before
    Corvallis, OR Crawl Space Encapsulated to Deter Pest Infestation
    After

    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.

  • Attic's Re-Insulation Steps Make Junction City, OR Home More Comfortable to Live In
    Before
    Attic's Re-Insulation Steps Make Junction City, OR Home More Comfortable to Live In
    After

    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.

  • Crawl Space Near Lorane, OR Insulated with Closed-Cell Spray Foam
    Before
    Crawl Space Near Lorane, OR Insulated with Closed-Cell Spray Foam
    After

    This couple did research online for closed-cell spray foam companies and called us for an appointment. Their goals were to make their floors warmer in the winter and improve air quality in their home. About 50% of the air you breathe on the first floor comes in through the crawl space, so if a crawl space area is moldy or moist, or full of rodent feces, that comes in to the home.

    This home definitely needed work as the underfloor insulation was ripped and hanging down (see BEFORE photo).

    They chose us to install an average of three inches of closed-cell spray foam on the underfloor plus to seal the ductwork (see AFTER photo).

  • Riddle, OR Ductwork Spray Foamed
    Before
    Riddle, OR Ductwork Spray Foamed
    After

    This home near Riddle, OR needed new crawl space insulation. Besides having the underfloor spray foamed, they also chose to have the ductwork for the heating system sealed up with closed cell spray foam. Now they are not heating the crawl space from the leaky ductwork!

  • Attic Insulation in Roseburg, OR Home Helps to Make Home More Comfortable
    Before
    Attic Insulation in Roseburg, OR Home Helps to Make Home More Comfortable
    After

    The attic in new-to-this-family home in Roseburg, OR was only partially insulated when they moved in. To help them make their home more comfortable to live in, our expert insulation crew first removed all the old insulation you see in the BEFORE photo.

    Before blowing in TruSoft™ cellulose insulation to the higher R-60 value, the crew sealed all the air leak areas to help prevent air from the home escaping in to the attic.  With this nice insulation “blanket” in the attic, their new home is much more comfortable to live in!

  • Walls in Otis, OR Home Now Well-Insulated with Spray Foam
    Before
    Walls in Otis, OR Home Now Well-Insulated with Spray Foam
    After

    After finding us online, this owner of a home near Otis, OR called about spray foaming exterior walls as they were at a point in this project where the interior side was open.

    Our crew prepared the area and then applied spray foam up to 4 inches thick to the interior walls. It is now ready for drywall.

  • Underfloor of Vacation Home Near Neotsu, OR Spray Foamed For Warmer Floors
    Before
    Underfloor of Vacation Home Near Neotsu, OR Spray Foamed For Warmer Floors
    After

    The owners of this vacation home near Neotsu, OR wanted the floors to be warmer and were glad to get a proposal from us as we offer different insulation options. They chose to use the longer-term solution of spray foam.

    The added benefit is that spray foam fills in cracks and air seals the floor so the cold air cannot enter the home through the floor, and rodents do not like to chew into it.

  • Florence, OR Home Cleaned Up Underneath to Prepare for Sale
    Before
    Florence, OR Home Cleaned Up Underneath to Prepare for Sale
    After

    This Florence, OR homeowner was getting ready to list her home for sale and needed some items in the crawl space handled. Insulation that had fallen down was removed, and places missing insulation were re-stuffed with fiberglass batts. The old vapor barrier was removed and a new 6-mil black plastic vapor barrier was installed. Vent screens were repaired or replaced where critters had wiggled their way in.
