    Musty Crawlspace Sealed in Duluth, MN

    Duluth, MN homeowners wanted to seal their dirt crawl space. It had very little insulation, causing cold conditions for the room above it. But their biggest issues was the musty smell. It was present year-round in their living space. Concerned about health implications of smelling mold, they contacted DBS for a permanent solution.

    Design Specialist Henry Jungbauer is an expert in energy-saving solutions and visited the home to provide a free, no-obligation estimate. After a thorough inspection, Henry drafted a custom-plan to seal this dirt crawl space and protect the home above it.

    Foreman Orrin Sundberg and his production crew installed drainage matting and CleanSpace® vapor barrier. The drainage matting helps water properly drain from the space. In turn, the vapor barrier prevents condensation in the wet dirt from evaporating into the air and traveling up into the living space.

    Our crew finished the encapsulation job by using spray foam to seal and insulate the crawl space rim joists. This will prevent cold air from entering the crawl space and cooling the living space above it.

    The homeowner was happy with the work done, and now has a solid solution to protect their home year-round.

    Insulation Air-Seals Attic Results in Lower Energy Bills and A More Comfortable Home in Duluth, MN

    The owners of this home in Duluth, MN recently replaced their old roof that had snow melting constantly. Now that they have the new roof installed, they were interested in a more energy-efficient insulation solution to keep heat inside of their home. The owners reached out to DBS after being referred to us by a friend.

    Design Specialist Henry Jungbauer visited the home to conduct a free no-obligation estimate. After a thorough inspection, Henry educated the owners on the insulation solution offered by DBS.

    Foreman Nick Woods II led the installation of this project with help from a crew. Together they air-sealed every gap in the attic with ZypFoam™ where air could leak from such as floorboards, light fixtures, and the entrance hatch. Then a layer of spray foam was sprayed onto the flooring to completely seal the flooring off before they covered the attic in 17" of blown-in Tru-Soft™ cellulose insulation. A benefit of insulation made from cellulose is that it is saturated with a borate solution for fire retardancy and also makes it resistant to mold and insects.

    Now that the attic has been properly insulated, the homeowners will be able to relax comfortably as their homes will feel warmer while their energy bills decrease.
