Here is the lovely exterior of the home in Fairfax, Virginia. You can see that in this photo there is a tube going from the street to the upper floor. This tube is what brings the blow-in cellulose insulation to the attic. You will see that this looks like on the inside towards the end of the album.
What we are looking at here is the under side of a bay window, otherwise known as a cantilever. This photo was taken before we deconstruct it to insulate what is inside.
Here is the inside of an uninsulated cantilever!
This shot is just another angle of the exposed cantilevers.
This is what the contents of a cantilever look like after being insulated with spray foam!
And voila! An insulated and sealed cantilever.
All of the pink fluffy stuff on the floor is the original fiberglass insulation. We will remove this to replace this with blow-in cellulose insulation.
This is what the original insulation looked like all rolled out.
Here you can see how we encapsulated the ducts with spray foam.
This is one wall that we insulated with spray foam before we sprayed it.
Here we have a spray foamed wall. This is what it looks like up close.
This is simply another image of a spray foamed wall.
Here we are looking at what the big tube was bringing in from the first photo. This thick grey fluffy stuff all over the floor is the primary thermal insulator and it is TruSoft blow-in cellulose insulation.
Another photo of TruSoft!
This home in Fairfax, VA was struggling to keep the inside air in and the outside air out so they called Comfenergy! Their home was losing air from the can lights to the cantilevers so we came in to insulate everything. This series of images will highlight some of the steps along the way.
