We had a customer call in about a home he had just purchased with no insulation in the crawl space. We had set the appointment for him, promising him a free written estimate provided by one of our specialist. We finished with a happy customer. He now has a clean crawl space, his home is comfortable, free from cold drafts, little critters, and the smell of mold.
A homeowner in Duluth, MN reached out to DBS regarding home insulation. During the winter months, the home remained cold and drafty due to poor insulation. In need of a solution, the homeowner had a Design Specialist visit, and it was concluded that the rim joist area of the home would need to have SilverGlo™ installed for proper home insulation. This product is ideal for keeping your home warm and energy efficient during the harsh winter season. The product can be seen installed in this gallery!
A homeowner in Duluth, MN reached out to DBS regarding the insulation services we provide and was wanting a Design Specialist to come out and inspect their basement. The specialist recommended that the rim joists in the basement had spray foam installed, and our crew did just that. The spray foam will help ensure a more comfortable and energy-saving home environment.
This home had very little insulation protecting it from the unconditioned attic space. In order to remedy this situation we first sprayed in a layer of spray foam insulation around the whole base of the attic. This gave us a good base of insulation to work from and provided a much tighter air seal for the home. Next, we blew in around 18" of cellulose insulation. The combination of these insulation techniques now gives the homeowner a much more comfortable home with very little heat escaping through the attic in the winter.
This customer was losing heat through their basement walls, in addition, they were unknowingly allowing cold air to enter their home. With these bare basement walls and uninsulated rim joists, this basement was a leading cause of inefficiency in the home. These issues were fixed by spraying a layer of spray foam around the perimeter of the basement including the tight and hard to reach spaces like the rim joists. The basement now adds energy efficiency to the home and provides a nice clean look that the walls had previously been lacking. If this homeowner were to finish this basement we let them know that we also offer complete basement finishing services.
