We removed the cantilever ceiling and removed the old insulation.
The drywall is taken down and a SilverGlo foam block is installed to block the bay.
Polyurethane foam is sprayed over the block and on the bottom of the floor deck to stop air flow and insulate.
After there is a layer of spray foam, the rest of the air space is filled with fiberglass batting.
Drywall is re-installed and sealed
The ceiling is painted and finished. The homeowners now have much warmer kitchen floors above this cantilever.
Homeowners in Markham, VA wanted to make their kitchen floor less cold in the winter time. They have a cantilevered floor which sticks out past the wall below it. This building detail allows air to leak in, creaking cold floors above. The Comfenergy production crew air sealed and insulated the exposed cantilever floor, resulting in warmer floors, less drafts, a quieter home, and lower fuel and electric bills.
