First, we carefully removed all the contaminated fiberglass insulation and then disinfected the entire attic. Next, we added over 10 inches of TruSoft blown-in cellulose insulation. TruSoft insulation maximizes home comfort, has the highest Class-1 fire safety rating, is resistant to mold and pests, is eco-friendly, and optimizes energy usage for year-round peace and savings.
After decades of dealing with a costly crawl space, this homeowner in Freehold, NJ decided it was time to encapsulate it!
First, we removed all the debris, leveled the ground for proper draining, and installed a dimpled drainage matting. The drainage matting allows all excess moisture to work its way over to the sump pump. Once we finished, we installed SilverGlo™ all over the walls of the crawl space. SilverGlo™ is a waterproof foam insulation that seals the walls from outside moisture and humidity to the walls of the crawl space.
Afterward, we installed a vapor barrier. The vapor barrier is a 20-mil 7-ply sandwich of high and low-density polyethylene that is treated with an antimicrobial finish that protects against mold and mildew growth. Lastly, in order to control the high humidity levels in the crawl space and to prevent mold, we installed a SaniDry dehumidifier. These dehumidifiers are maintenance-free, turn on and off automatically with a built-in hygrometer, and there is no water tray to empty or overflow.
Now the homeowner has a healthy and efficient crawl space as well as an extra area he can utilize for storage!
This homeowner in Basking Ridge, NJ, decided it was time to add some much-needed blown-in cellulose insulation to his attic space, so he called our office and our Contracting Team was sent out.
As soon as we arrived, we went right to work! First, we carefully removed all the old fiberglass insulation, cleaned the area, and then added TruSoft blown-in cellulose insulation. TruSoft blown-in cellulose insulation will reinforce the barrier between the home's attic and other rooms. It has a higher R-value than standard fiberglass insulation, has the highest Class-1 fire safety rating, is resistant to mold and pests, and is eco-friendly! The blanket of insulation will create a thermal barrier and help keep the home more comfortable and efficient — which will lead to year-round savings for the homeowner!
A new resident in Brick, NJ recently purchased a home and wanted Cowleys to replace the insulation in his attic with blown-in cellulose insulation.
When we inspected the attic, there was a ton of old fiberglass insulation pilled on top of one another throughout the attic! Apparently, the previous owner just kept pilling new fiberglass insulation on top of the old ones, thinking that this will properly insulate his attic — it did not!
We removed all the insulation throughout the attic, properly disposed of it, and then vacuumed and disinfected the attic. Afterward, we added approximately 10 inches of TruSoft blown-in cellulose insulation throughout the attic. Our blown-in TruSoft cellulose insulation exceeds the recommended insulation standards and prevents attic air from seeping into the home. TruSoft won't compress, is treated with non-toxic borate (which creates an incredible resistance to mold & pests), has the highest Class-1 fire safety rating, and is eco-friendly!
Now the attic looks more aesthetically pleasing and organized and the homeowner will save a considerable amount of money on his energy bill!
