Since Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver offers different options for insulating your crawl space, these homeowners were able to choose the option that worked best for them. Our insulation crew applied 3 inches of closed cell spray foam to the underfloor and rim joists.
Closed-cell spray foam is a great solution to prevent condensation on the walls and ceiling of a metal building. This BEFORE photo shows the building just as our crew was preparing the building—they covered the floor in plastic sheeting and taped off beams and other areas with painter’s tape. The AFTER photo shows the metal parts of the building spray foamed. Now the warmer air inside cannot condensate and drip--it cannot reach the metal walls and ceiling.
This homeowner up Lorane Highway in Eugene, OR decided to drywall this open ceiling (see BEFORE photo) and called Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver to get a proposal. Our Energy Consultant saw that it was an open ceiling and suggested closed-cell spray foam, rather than fiberglass or rigid foam board, as the superior insulating material.
Our spray foam insulation crew sprayed in three inches of closed-cell spray foam (see photo) between the beams, and then the homeowner was able to drywall right over it. Besides being the more superior insulating material for this job, it also helps with soundproofing.
The client fond us online and called about a shed with a metal roof that needed weatherproofing. Closed-cell spray foam was chosen as it doesn’t take up much space, seals up the leaks and then that metal roof won’t drip on them!
