The owner of this cabin in Stone Lake, WI was having issues keeping it warm in the wintertime. They were unable to use the cabin in the winter and looking for a solution, they reached out to DBS.
Design Specialist Henry Jungbauer went to the home to conduct a free no-obligation estimate for the owner. After a thorough inspection, Henry informed the owner that DBS could install insulation solutions in both the attic and crawlspace that would solve their issues.
Foreman Nicholas Woods II led the installation for this project with help from a crew. Together they encapsulated the crawlspace with 3 layers of insulation. The first layer installed was drainage matting to assist the flow of water. On top of the matting, panels of TerraBlock™ foam insulation were installed to protect the space against frost. Finally, a layer of CleanSpace® was applied to complete the encapsulation process. In the attic, the crew removed all of the old batting insulation and sprayed polyurethane foam inside the knee walls of the attic to complete the air sealing process. They also blew in 17 inches of Tru-Soft™ cellulose insulation to properly insulate the attic floor.
Now that the home has been properly insulated, the homeowner will experience a warmer cabin without paying more for heating, and will finally be able to relax comfortably all year round.
