This homeowner in Holyoke, MN was never too concerned about the quality of his crawl space. Once he learned about the effects of a poor crawl space, he decided to do something about it. After doing some research, he found DBS and reached out to them to set up an appointment to have a system design specialist come evaluate his home. Following a brief friendly phone conversation with the office staff, an appointment was set to have DBS’ home comfort specialist make a trip out to the home for a free no obligation estimate. The specialist did a thorough inspection of the home and explained to the homeowner the best possible solution. First, the crawl space should be cleaned and the old insulation should be removed before the new installation could begin. To best insulate the space, SilverGlo™ high-performance graphite insulation should be installed on the crawl space walls. Then, each rim joist should be spray foamed throughout the entire crawl space which would further eliminate any cool drafts from entering the home. This top of the line solution would leave the homeowner with a clean, warm and dry crawl space. After the specialist and homeowner came to a comfortable price agreement, a date was set to have the production crew professionally complete the installation. This great solution left the home with a higher level of energy efficiency and a clean dry crawl space.

This Holyoke, MN home was built in the year 2000. They contacted us specifically looking for solutions to preventing ice dams in their home.  

Our Dr. Energy Saver® Design Specialist Henry Jungbauer 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 Minnesota summers and freezing winters with new attic insulation.
