Elijah says that when he first walked in and was greeted, he knew this was a place where he wanted to work--he liked the friendly atmosphere.
Before coming to work here, he worked in roofing, concrete and concrete cutting, and masonry.
When not at work, Elijah enjoys the outdoors with friends and family, including his two dogs.
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!
To be the most effective project it can be, don’t just add insulation on top of old insulation. It’s much more effective to remove the old insulation, get at the places that need air sealing with spray foam, and then insulate over this air sealed attic floor.
This Tualatin, OR attic hardly had any insulation and didn’t have leaks sealed (see BEFORE photo). After our insulating team removed the old insulation, they air sealed the leaks (see AFTER photo). They then blew in the TruSoft™ cellulose insulation.
The crawl space under this SE Salem, OR home was a gigantic mess! Fiberglass insulation was either hanging down or on the ground rather than tucked onto the underfloor (see BEFORE photo). Rodents were living in the space (they love fiberglass to make nests). Plus, the high humidity level under the home was causing mold to grow!
To make their home more energy-efficient, and also so they wouldn’t be breathing in mold spores, this family chose to seal their crawl space with crawl space encapsulation.
The old, nasty, insulation and vapor barrier were removed by our crawl space crew and then the mold issue was treated with Mold-X to neutralize it and stop the growth. They then installed the special encapsulation vapor barrier material, spray foamed the foundation walls, and installed the Sedona dehumidifier and the SmartSump sump pump.
All of these items together, rather than just replacing the insulation with more fiberglass, makes this home more comfortable and healthier for this family.
This BEFORE photos shows the attic deck floor and ductwork. What you can’t see is: how inefficient the fiberglass batting is, how the ducts were leaking, and how there were air gaps along the edges that were causing air to be sucked up from the home and into the attic!
Fiberglass, although still be used, is not the best insulation material. Building standards back when this home was built in 1926 didn’t include sealing up all the leaks. To solve many issues, the homeowner chose closed-cell spray foam insulation (see AFTER photo).
