The homeowner in Ashburn called, as last year their pipes froze and they did not want that to happy again.This home i has always had issues with hot and cold spots, and freezing pipes in the winter. We found cold air in the master bedroom attic to be getting around the batt insulation leading to the bathroom above. This entire neighborhood of as notorious drafts and hot/cold spots. These homes have also dealt with many frozen water lines. The water lines were freezing almost 20 feet from the exterior of the home! Comfenergy installed 4" thick SilverGlo foam boards with heat reflective barrier on the attic walls.
Problem solved!!! Foam board insulation in an attic keeps the cold air from travelling beneath the bathroom tub and the pipes from freezing.
The homeowner will be more comfortable in the Summer and Winter.....but it lessened the draftiness of the home, and the pipes don't freeze any more!!!
This Leesburg, VA homeowner had mold growing in their vented attic assembly that was causing the family to develop allergies and get sick very often. Comfenergy discovered this attic mold and treated it with MoldX-2 before air sealing, insulating and providing other services.
These pictures ar eof the mold covered roof joists before and after being treated by Comfenergy with MoldX-2.
We were contracted to remove insulation from this home that had suffered from a fire. The insulation reeked of smoke, and was very wet.
The insulation was a combination of Batt Insulation and Blown In. As there was a great deal of smoke smell, it was important for every bit to be removed.
Here we set up the appropriate containment barrier for detailed cleaning of Mold
Photos of mold on a set of basement stairs in Hamilton, VA. Stairs were cleaned within a contained area with negative pressure maintained. Stairs were cleaned with industrial strength Hydrogen Peroxide, with HEPA vacuuming before and after chemical treatment.
These stairs were in a basement room that had little or no moisture control. After addressing the moisture issue we provided detailed cleaning services to assure good air quality for the occupants of this historic home.
Proper continment was established and then a protocol of HEPA Vac, Treat with Peroxide, HEPA Vac was deployed in order to remove mold spores.
Homeowner in Vienna needed to organize his attic and create an Insulated Storage Deck
This Purcellville homeowner was looking for a great way to insulate the basement and have it prepped to finish before putting it on the market for sale. They didn't want to finish the basement completely, but wanted it "ready to finish" so the buyer could build it out as the wished.
Comfenergy found the ultimate solution by using Basement to Beautiful wall panels. These wall panels are insulated with SilverGlo foam and have the metal studs already built into them. Each insulated Basement to Beautiful wall panel is held in place with foam spray insulation, and then secured using long bolts. There are 3 distinct advantages to these wall panels. 1) Once they are installed, the room is ready to be finished because the framing is built in. 2) They provide moisture intrusion control. 3) The Basement to Beautiful panels are infused with anti-microbial materials and will not mold nor mildew.

Cellulose Insulation was used to dense pack the cathedral ceiling of this cottage that had no insulation in the attic. We also found a cantilevered section that required dense packing as well.
