Warmer Floors in Spooner, WI Home After Crawl Space Encapsulation Installed by DBS

The owners of this home in Spooner, WI experienced issues with a musty smell coming from their crawl space and cold floors. They noticed insulation ads by DBS around town and reached out in hopes of finding a solution.

First, they installed a layer of dimpled drainage matting to assist the flow of water underneath the insulation. Next, the crew laid panels of TerraBlock™ foam insulation to prevent frost in the wintertime. To Complete the encapsulation process, they covered the previous layers in a water vapor barrier called CleanSpace®. They also sprayed polyurethane foam insulation over the concrete block walls to completely air-seal the space.

Spray Foam Insulation for Trego, WI Attic

This Trego, WI homeowner was having issues with the existing insulation in their home. They wanted to create more comfortable conditions in their home year-round, as well as save on energy bills. 

Our Dr. Energy Saver® Design Specialist Jacob Nustad-Peluso went to the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the insulation project. After inspecting the property and conducting an energy audit, it was determined that spray foam insulation and blown-in insulation in the attic were necessary to effectively insulate the space.

DBS Foreman Orrin Sundberg begain this insulation job by removing the existing fiberglass batting. His crew then completely air sealed the space with ZypFoam, concentrating on gaps in the building material and spaces surrounding the attic ducts. 

From there, they applied 1 inch of spray foam to the roof deck. They then used our TruSoft™ cellulose, covering the roof deck in 18-inches of soft, yet dense insulation. TruSoft™ has a higher R-value than fiberglass and other cellulose materials, perfect for use in our northern climate. Tru-Soft™ cellulose is extra dense and made from recycled news paper. It's treated to be extremely resistant to heat and fire, making it a great companion for an attic space. 

This home is now properly equipped to handle warm Wisconsin summers and freezing winters with new attic insulation.
