The owner of this cabin in Stone Lake, WI was unable to use it during winter because of improper insulation. Looking for an energy-efficient solution, they reached out to DBS.
Design Specialist Austin Burley went to the property to conduct a free no-obligation estimate. After a thorough inspection, Austin let the cabin owners know about the insulation solutions offered by DBS. He advised them that they would benefit from having both the attic and crawl space properly insulated.
Foreman Raeshawn Pelfrey led the installation of the crawl space encapsulation on the cabin. With the help of a crew, they removed all of the faulty insulation from underneath the structure. First, a layer of dimpled drainage matting was laid over the ground in the crawl space. Next, panels of TerraBlock™ foam insulation were installed over the drainage matting to prevent frost. Finally, CleanSpace®, a thick white poly vapor barrier, was installed to complete the encapsulation of the crawl space. The crew also sprayed waterproof polyurethane foam to air-seal the walls of the foundation ensuring the space is as energy-efficient as possible.
Now that the home has been thoroughly insulated, the cabin owners will be able to comfortably use their cabin all year long.
